I take a standard rubber (eraser), a knife and, the cap of an ink pen to
build my own. Using the cap (fortunately the same diameter as the
hammer) an the knive to form the drill hole and the knive for the rest
of the shape.
Other people reported good results with cushions (multiple layers) of
insulating tape or heat shrink tubing fixed with insulating tape.
