Universal Multi-function Handle (Process Gas and Vacuum)

      The disclosed handle 1 of this tool (Fig. 1) is designed
as a "Universal Handle."  All the logic controls 2 and line pickups 3
are contained within its own structure.  The position of handle 1 is
such as to allow for comfortable use when a user is sitting or
standing while using this tool.

      The disclosed handle 1 is constructed of a composite case
urethane plastic, but not limited to that means, with the use of
internal coring 4, to carry air and vacuum.  The handle 1 contains a
universal mount 5 that can easily be connected to the base 6.  A
custom base is then easily constructed to handle the desired product
(Fig. 2).

      The formed base 6 distributes the air vacuum from the handle to
the custom base.
