If you don't want to spend the money you can use tennis balls for your grip strength. As far as the forearm and wrist, I would tie a can of peas 16 oz or larger to a rope and the rope to a bar or stick so its horizontal to the ground and the can is hanging down. Allow the rope to fall 2 feet. Hold ur arms straight out holding the bar, then roll up the rope on the bar until the can reaches the top then roll the can down slowly to the end. Do that 3 sets and you will feel your wrists and forearms tightening.
That will build up wrists forearms shoulders. When it gets easier you can tie a weight to it instead of a can.
Home made stuff sometimes is easier then going out and spending the money on equipment.

Now I'm taking Glocosamine/Chondroitin (1pill daily) and that seems to give me the same benefits -- without those risks.
Before either of those daily pills, I'd work my hands hard over the weekend and they would ache for days; but now with these supplements (after turning 50), the aching usually lasts a day or less, if any. Oh, and Ibuprofen also became a good friend these last couple of years too.
My elderly mother suggested Espom Salt Rub, which she swears by, and that really seems to help too (when I need it).
I do agree that the exercises -- done when your hands aren't aching -- can help build up the strength and maybe help prevent some of the aches or pains.
