    I like to use the tool with the needles at 90° to OEM execution. I can see where to insert easier and holding the tool is more ergonomic. I fashioned a leather punching to cover the roller bearing because it was wearing on the lever. I ground the side of the plunger flat for the retaining screw to keep it aligned. Returning to OEM configuration is simple enough. I also bent the lever, it is now a little easier to push and more ergonomic.

    Needle orientation is 90° to photo, wheel bearing is inline/rolling along handle.
