Wenger Minigrip Mod
« on: May 06, 2012, 01:39:09 PM »
I have a used Wenger Minigrip. The pliers didn't quite shut when locked and in trying to remedy this I snapped the pin embedded in the pliers handle which the lock catches on to. I have the pliers closed with a cable tie at present, but it's taken the glamour out of the tool for me now.
As I see it my options are to try to fix the pliers, to leave it as it is, or to take it apart and remake it without the plier function. I'm quite enamoured with the idea of the Blade, wood saw, metal file, cap lifter and can opener combo.
I've never modded a knife before and don't have any specialist tools, but I consider myself to be a practical person (despite knackering the minigrip!)
Would this be a straight forward repair or mod?
I've looked at the mod stickies but they only seem to refer to Vics - Has anyone got a link to modding Wengers?
