Hi Guys hope this helps,

its a pain when the old gripping hands go hard fingers snap off, affraid when i was replacing the gripping hands i found the Pegs for the new ones are slightly bigger and it is a very tight fit and very hard to twist sometimes it splits the wrist hole  Mad , when doing this the 40th hands came off from there pegs Surprised  Mad  Shocked  

so i glued them on to the old Pegs and they fit and move great twist good,

Hold the peg between fnger and thumb tight, and with the other hand between thumb and finger twist and pull there will be no damage to grippers.

Good step by step guide, wolfie, and a great idea! Cool  

I've been doing that for ages, i even tried sanding down the new pegs, but they just pull out too easy. Your way is definitely the way to go cheers
