Works great! Still takes a light touch but holds good enough.
Tool isnt rigid enough to hold mag gear from moving when re-inserting the magneto into the accessory case..
Waste of money. The teeth of the tool are way too soft to keep the gear from moving. The slightest pressure causes the gear tooth to jump to the next gear tooth position. The tool is translucent so you can shine a flashlight through it and watch the gear tooth jump.
Not what I expected. Not worth the $10 it cost.
