My problem as well. I have considered chucking it in the vice and filing down some areas specifically for often used sizes. Just have not gotten “a round tuit.”

Bill,

 

I have this tool and I have to admit that I struggle to make it work. The steps are not in any particularly useful HO scale dimension so I am always having to figure out which step to use. I find it easier to just use needle nose pliers, but ymmv.

 

Regards,

This grab iron thread has been going on for quite a while. But I have never seen a mention of a super grab iron tool at Micro Mark that has made the many grab irons I have had to make for my scratch built HO and O-scale cars: #84745 Grab Iron Bending Gauge

 

I have attached a picture of it. Enjoy!!

Yes. 

Someone else pointed out that the standoff bracket is very slightly bent upward so that might account for the crooked grab iron.
