Very true.  I only wonder why items like this are not mentioned more
frequently in the shop manuals.

Oh, and if anybody ever rents one of the t-belt tools from blau, if you get
one that has a bit of knurling on the wrench, that's my signature work.
Only had a roofing hammer on hand...

There's no Blau reps on this list are there?  If so, just kidding.
