Short answer is, yes.

If you already have the tool or access to one, then use it. However there are several posts here with plans for inexpensive DIY variator holder tools which don't require 3 hands to use effectively.

CJ's right... so many of us have made the same thing out of a length of wood and a couple of stationary screws. Someplace on this site (maintenance ?) should be pattern you can follow and save some money possibly. Good Luck !!

Looks like you've picked the right tool for the job!!

I tried making one but the center nut was on so  tightly everything home made broke (wood splintered, bolts bent) in the end I bought the proper tool which worked.

I whipped one out in the my shop a couple weeks ago. Used a piece of oak along with a couple bolts and it was ready to go. Got the job done.

I used a 1”x3” board (pine). It is 30” long it could be shorter but not much. I used 2 - 8mm bolts 2” long. I drilled a bolt hole ahold big enough to invert a 17mm socket and then another bolt hole. See pictures.

In regards to the original question, yes the Fleabay offering works fine.
I have it opened fully and have a 1 ft long pipe for leverage.
