Here the rebuilt brush assembly is being remounted to the commutator. There is little room in this case to work with the fingers, so the brushes must be pressed in by a wooden stick during the process. In the case of a motor, you probably have more room, and you may be remounting one brush and holder at a time, so the stick trick is not necessarily required. Also if you buy a complete brush assembly for a motor, it may contain a plastic clip that compresses the brushes until the holder is seated.
