SEARCH for the treasure...
@cybrguy thanks so much for the wonderful endorsement. George was almost the first one to receive one of my tools. Dont know if he liked it, he did mention that he was surprised by the weight of it. I think my tool does great for insertion/removal and setting the bowl size
Since seeing @TommyDee niftty little tool for shaping and inserting a reversed domed ccd, his tool is the way to go in that regard. From what I read of his concept, a reverse dome adds greater airflow when the ccd is all the way back into the tip. Between the two tools, I think weve got a great approach.
I couldn’t tell by the photo of your tool, but it appears to have a fixed wooden handle/holder.
Just a suggestion, while a bit more complicated etc., if the middle part of the metal shaft were threaded, the wooden, or even metal handle, threaded to mate with the shaft, could be adjusted to be the “stopper”, as it hits the top tip bowl edge. Similar to TommyDee’s tool, but depth adjustable. Closer to the nut & bolt solution offered a few times in this thread.
