Balanced Float Handles™ for the Professional

Years of developmental work have gone into the perfection of a superior float handle. The head is hardened stainless steel with just the right weight for carbide blades (which require a heavier handle to cut efficiently), yet thin enough to access problem areas. The shafts are stainless steel with a choice of either round or flat shaft design. The grips are polyurethane for feel and durability. Colors are offered as well as black for the grips. Lengths and angles are standard on seven different equine dental float handles. Upon request, we can modify these to suit your preference. Also, we offer a round shaft pistol grip in any angle or length that you may desire. A unique design feature of the handle heads allow them to take either 3" or 3-1/4" length blades. Each handle is polished and finished all over to give them the look and feel of a highly professional product.

Our Ergo shape™ Grips are standard in the colors shown and are also available in Black. The colors help you choose the correct handle. Black, however, makes a very nice looking handle. All grips have a marker for the thumb to feel so you can align the grip with the flat of the blade. They also have bumps and rings on the surface to help give your hand a sure grip. They are available in small, medium and large sizes.

Ultra Slim™ handle

Shown is a picture of a Pocket Blade™ and an Ultra Slim™ flat shaft Pocket Blade™ Handle. This is a set up that utilizes the least amount of space yet the blade is easily removable. Simply remove two set screws from the back-side and the blade will slip out of the handle. It can then easily be packaged and sent back to us for re-grinding.

Pocket BladeFloat Handles- for MAKITA® Reciprocators

MPS-1 handle

#MPS-1 Round Shaft Pocket Handle™ for 1-1/4" length Pocket Blade™ shown. The angle is 5 degrees open at a 15-1/2" working length for our MK-0, MK-1 and MK-2 MAKITA® motors. The light weight of these shafts will not cause excessive vibration at the more efficient higher speeds.

MPS-2 handle

#MPS-2 Round Shaft Pocket Handle™ for 1-1/4" length Pocket Blade™ shown. The angle is 15 degrees closed at a 15-1/2" working length for our MK-0, MK-1 and MK-2 MAKITA® motors.

Note: Reciprocators require light weight but strong shafts and heads. If the handle is too heavy, the reciprocating unit will vibrate making it difficult to do the required work. A speed of about 2700 strokes a minute is about right for a fast cut. A heavy handled reciprocator cannot run that fast without excessive vibration. Our light weight Pocket BladeFloat Handles and Pocket Blades™ solves this problem. See our modified MAKITA®® reciprocating units in the "Float Motors" section of this web site.
