Well the sideclip i just got from Nomad Has 3 different codes on it!!! I think that is a record.

Thats pretty impressive.

My Wave had different codes, but I had to send it in for repair and they replaced both the handles so now they match.

I'm back!!

Interesting.

The poster from CPF responded to my inquiry.

Hi...

I just checked. The one I have has a "one-piece" plier head....and not the type shown in your picture.

Take care.

Looks like Schrade did scale down the production of the ToughTool during their last days of operation.

Velly eentulestink....

Yah it looks like a retool to save cash. Schrade was going broke for several years and most likely did this to save manufacturing and assembly cost.

Its a   Shame :-\

Nice find. That's it all right.

I always wondered what everyone meant when they were talking about lamination and the ToughTool.

Here's another one, what's the hole for on the rear of the handle?

I had one of those Schrade multi-tools. Mine was labeled Craftsman. I hated it, maybe I got a lemon but on mine the locks didn't work worth a crap, the blades didn't sharpen very good and it just felt cheap. Since I worked at Sears at the time I waited until I knew they were out of them to "replace" my Schrade. Imagine my disappointment when the salesman said I could wait for the next truck and get a replacement one or I could just get a LM Super Tool 200. I was heartbroken but I took the Leatherman.  :D

Not on mine- I just always assumed it was a badly placed lanyard hole.

I found this patent information on Google Patents. Here's a link to the Schrade Tough Tool patent.

So anyhow, about that hole.......




The patent text reads:
One use of tool 10 to clamp items like a vise is shown in FIG. 7. A multi-strand cable 106 is clamped in jaws 18 and 20 with tool 10 in a semi-closed state. An aperture 108 is preferably formed through web 68 of handle 24 and is adapted to receive, when desired, a lanyard 110. Lanyard 110 provides a convenient way to carry tool 10 on a belt or back-pack. It also allows tool 10 to clamp cable 106, or other desired item, by closing tool 10 with cable 106 between the jaws 18 and 20 of pliers 12, and by wrapping lanyard 110 tightly around handles 22 and 24. Tool 10 will continue to clamp cable 106 without the necessity of gripping the pliers in one's hands. As noted above, this advantage is due to the storing of gripping end 14 externally of the handles when tool 10 is closed.

Clear as mud, right? :D

So basically it's a lanyard hole that allows you to tie the handles closes so that stuff that was stuck in the jaws is held together.

Would this be any more effective than just wrapping the cord around whatever you want to clamp?

Maybe doing it that way was already patented by Tim Leatherman?  :D

If you drilled a hole in the handle of a PowerLock, you could do this with compound leverage!

You must have the original made-in-USA version then? :)
