My break does not have a way to add fingers. Too bad. I have needed a finger break many times. It is bad to be good looking but poor(grin).

Ohh...darn.  I need to work on this idea...but the concept isn't clear.  I understand the idea of needing clearance...what I'm not sure of is how the stepped finger helps.  More thinking required.
