No worries, I never slag off an idea without thinking about it first. I love tools and have many job specific Heli tools in my arsenal.

I simply think that in this case the KISS method is the easiest. Your case with a stuck Bell is rare and I'd recommend most pilots fix that instead of making a tool to get around the problem.

If you do sell a 'tool' I am sure many pilots would buy it just because they love gadgets. LOL.

I have not used one, I use the "black tape wrapped clutch" method

But - here's one for Vision (and probably Trex-600N) clutches

"With a PVC Pipe it just mashes the liner in as tight as it will go. When I install a liner, I use epoxy and the epoxy fills the gap in behind the liner to just right thickness so that the liner/clutch gap is right. With PVC this tolerance cannot be set as I see it..."

With any method you have to ensure that the proper thickness liner is used. If you use the 2 layers of elec tape and a too thin liner you will get low spots which IMHO is no good. If your liner is too thin then you need to put something behind it. I routinely use some carbon fiber paper for this. Every heli pilot should own a dial caliper. They can be had for about $20.
