This is as basic as it gets, getting a comfortable hand hold on the tool. Mostly I want to work flat on a table but my problem is the air hose and connectors are 4" long so that I have to use one hand to lift the hose to avoid it from steering the brush. That leaves me without a second hand for additional guidance and steadying. A quick solution would be to eliminate the quick connect which is over an inch long, BUT I switch brushes too often so that's not an ideal solution. The other problem is that I work with long lines a lot so I need second hand guidance most of the time. Free handing with just one hand doesn't work for me. I'm wondering how others deal with these issues. I'm in a wheelchair so standing up isn't a solution for me but I know that many of you work sitting, so how do you deal with that pesky air hose? (Note: my Sotar A.B. air connector is much farther forward than most so that its positioning causes more interference. My new Iwata brush is supposed to arrive today so perhaps this is a problem that will resolve itself.).
