You can’t see it in the pictures, but I did the same to the tail stock bed lock. It made a HUGE difference. Before, I kept the mallet there to give the lock a tap. Now the mallet still stays there, but only to prep the centers.

My tool rest stop doesn’t fight me like the tail stock lock does, so I made no modification to it.

The longer handles are an excellent improvement (mine has a 3/4” copper “ferrule” too).
