It works great for its intended purpose, but it's really not needed.

Don't bother with it, its not worth the $$$, im just always sure to apply a bit of light machine oil during breakin and it works fine

Personally, I don't use any drops to break my brushes in.

I don't even break in my brushes for stock..just run them.

It forms the face of the brush to the same shape as the comm, so there is as much contact as possible.

if you want as much contact as possible, why does Reedy make Cavity brushes?
