Wow. Edjack's V8 38mm-offset recessed counterhold tool sure looks complicated.

All the others I've seen are muuuuuch simpler (i.e., flatter). What I don't understand is whether the 38mm offset tools that are made out of flat stock are 'equivalent'.

I "see" that they're physically different (the recessed groove and holes being a big difference) ... but they sell the flat ones (presumably in droves) so I wonder if the complex Edjack tool is as necessary as it might seem.

Luckily for me, I have the 45mm offset which seems simpler so this question is for you V8 guys.

PS: I do see, on Ebay, the two headed tool - which might make sense for those of you with multiple BMWs.
