We’ve re-introduced our JLS Brace Squeezer. The squeezer is designed to shorten a “fixed” style (non-telescoping) brace in order to properly align parts. Think of the critical alignment of slide tubes, such as the third slide on a trumpet. If the brace is too tall, there is no way to align the slide-hence the Brace Squeezer.
The JLS Brace Squeezer holds the brace on center in its frame, allowing one to squeeze the frame in a vice. The vice applies the pressure to shorten the brace. The Brace Squeezer’s screws hold the frame in proper alignment to the brace.
