Small ash tool mod

Here ya go, @shtgunal3. This is a "small" mod :)

The small ash tool is a bit of a pain to work with because it catches on the edge of the small egg's intake when you try to remove ash with it.

I filed down the lower edge of the tool's blade to round it out. I also rounded off the the lower corner of the blade. Then smoothed the edge of the blade where it attaches to the rod of the handle, so that it was just flush with the rod.

Works much better than it did before, for relatively little effort expended. Was so quick that I didn't even have time for a beverage.

    @caliking-Staging the beverage needs to go to the top of the prerequisite list before any new BGE projects :)

    When you run a car dealership all that is at hand. Come Friday it's all gone.
