What is the StockAid tool used for?

Where the switch points of a turnout meet the outer “stock” rails, some of the base of the stock rail needs to be removed to allow the switch points to close up against it tightly. Removing that tiny bit of base rail can be very challenging by hand. The StockAid tool works as a clamp to hold the rail steady while only exposing a small portion of the rail base. This exposed rail portion is easily filed off by hand, leaving a perfectly formed stock rail.
