I don't know how much difference it would make, never having used the offset one. But there was no problem with the straight one. Although I used it with the blade in line with the handle, not at right angles as in the photos.

I am currently digging back in to a 1953 3800 (one ton) with a nine foot bed. I've owned it since 1979, and drove it until 1982 (or so). My wife got me involved in restoring it back in 2002, got the body removed and the frame redone, then things came up. Now I am retired and starting again. If anyone is interested I have photos on Imagur ( https://timwhiteblues.imgur.com/ ). I live way back in the woods in the Ozarks on 40 acres at the end of a 2 1/2 mile private road.

That makes sense.

Thanks, bluesman

I just got back from installing the lock strip. With the new tool it took me ten minutes. Although I did have to spend a few minutes neatening up the corners, and getting the last inch in where the ends but together. I used GOOP for lubrication, and it all went together nicely. And now my hands are nice a smooth!
