Wish I had this tool at the start of my build.  I finally decided to purchase after doing 4 flaperons over a 3-4 week time period. The ache and stiffness in my cleco plier hand muscles and the potential for repetitive stress injury was starting to concern me .  This tool ($80 with pigtail)l feels natural already after about 10 clecos.  Did one slat in two days and my hands are thanking me.
