What Did You Use Your Multitool For Today?
« Reply #5610 on: February 18, 2019, 10:20:54 PM »
I used the Centerdrive Today to remove the intake wall plate from a Central Vac system in a huge house.
Then I grabbed a non-conductive fish tape and reamed the pipe in the wall for a few hours attempting to dislodge a blockage of some kind.
I closed the connections with the pliers to make the vac turn on with no hose attached to test the reaming?
I then took a Shop Vac to the thing and alternated between sucking with the shop vac and blowing with the central vac trying to move the blockage in either direction even a little bit!
After about 45 minutes of this I was able to grab and extract some kind of furry beast with the CD Pliers thus restoring the inlet to working!!!



I am not a Vac technician. :dunno:

Used the Supertool 300 and the squirt to help make wire bails for my opinels.

Recently got in some suspension clips and wanted to try them out on my opinels.  Used the awl to make a pilot hole for the drill.  Used both plier heads and cutters for forming the bails.

Wave for unscrewing the setup based upon a RaspberryPi, cutting the zip ties and assembling it all back together. Experimenting with an original NoIR RaspberryPi camera I just bought

Got to use the trusty Kick ASS’s saw blade to cut down the pesky overgrown branches that get in the way and scratch up our cars whenever we need to back out. Note the diameter of the branches. It did a great job, though I think I still prefer the cross cutting action of the Vic style saws.

A few minor victories today. Opened a package, replaced a watch battery, emancipated a Vic Classic from its packaging (it had been in there far too long), repaired a malfunctioning fauxton, tightened the knob on a saucepan lid, and cut open the underside of my armchair, to retrieve a lighter that had fallen down the side of the cushion, and dropped through a gap into the body of the chair.
