Make sure you do your finger tip push ups on the TIPS, not the pads.

One of the most effective and cheapest grip strength excerises I know of is dipping a large towel in water and wringing it out until it doesn't drip anymore. Do it a couple of times a day and you're set.
The person with the most killer grip and iron hard forearms I ever met was a 40 year old female dishwasher.

Get a strong towel. Throw it over a high chin-up bar. Garb the ends of the towel with each hand and then lift yourself up repeatedly. (don't wrap the ends of the towel around your hands, that is cheating)

I also find that my grip strength is improved dramatically just by my normal weight lifting routine. I believe doing heavy deadlifts, shrugs and rows without using wraps or hooks or anything is the key.

A variation on the towel thing that I used to do when I was Rock Climbing a lot:
Put a ridged tube (like a piece of PVC over your pull up bar. The tube should rotate freely around the bar. Now do palm out pull ups. This exercise will own you very quickly be ready to fall off the bar. When you can't do any more do some flexed arm hangs. Rest, Repeat, Cry the next day.

one common tool not mentioned is to tie a 10 or so lb. weight to some sort of handle making sure the rope is just long enough so the weight doesn't touch the ground. then wind the rope by turning the handle which lifts the weight and provides resistance in your forearms and wrists.
also, you can get various gripping devices just about anywhere. i used to have some i got from walmart for like ten bucks that worked pretty good.
