antoniop is right...we really dont need a handle...why not just eliminate the handle completely and make one longer bar, half laydown/standup and the other half p94?

Actually having a handle will make a big difference.....u really need leverage when u have misaligned hoods. Maybe just offering a P94 end as an option. I can't imagine just the tool end would be too expensive, and if u have a lot of p94 brush hoods it would be worth the investment. Stock motors are the ones that benifit the most from aligned brush hoods. Most people would buy it for that purpose.

I hear what you guys are saying. We do plan on offering just the tips for the different size of brushes. There are just 2, laydown/standup and the Trinity brushes. Price on just the tips have not been finalized yet.

We thought about not having a handle but some of the guys that tried our first prototype were not able to get a good grip on it. If you seen the pictures it was just the tool with a long end on it. Plus, some of us have some big hands and it just makes it easier to grab onto.

With Modified Cans you really don't have to worry all that much about alignment as you do with Stock and 19 turn motors. I think you gain more with the stock then you can with the Mod so a P94 is really not all that needed. Some may want to align their Mod cans but it is cheaper to have that tool seperate.
