the cord. there is a cord that you hold onto for proper
use of the wrench. if yours does not have a cord on it.
tie a piece onto it. even heavy string would work.

On the Basset tool that I have, the large rectangular hole is the wrench for the mounting bolt, the small hole at the opposite end should have a piece of paracord tied together through it. This cord is what you use to pull and torque the bolt with. On the other side is a hole bored almost through. I have no idea what it's for. -Lloyd

Yep that middle hole is what I'm curious about. Seems silly to take the time to mill it out for no purpose.

I've been greasing the roller like an auto mechanic doing wheel bearings, little grease on the palm of my hand and push the roller down, careful not to grease the backside if the roller. -Lloyd
