And possibly remove old scales from a SAK? I'm going to try it shortly and I'll inform you.

I used the bottle opener on my Farmer to open two bottles of beer last night.

used my Wenger SI to tighten the battery terminals on my YZF600R after it went electrically dead at traffic lights.

Used it as a measure for showing how hazardous a bike lane is...  (gets dang narrow here)




I frequently use it as a measure for showing hazards to bicyclists...

If you can't fix it with duct tape, a hammer, a screwdriver, bailing wire, zipties, or a Swiss Army Knife, it's broken and irreparable.

I hate these drainage holes.... and the problem can me sorted do easily, by putting them the other way round...  I dropped my wheel in one a few decades ago, flipped over...  :ahhh

No, they can't be fixed easily, those are rectangular drains, they are a little bit longer than they are wide, so the grates can't be rotated into a safe position.  I do regularly rotate the square ones though.

Hope you weren't hurt too badly when you crashed.

Over the last week or so, I used my "cranberry scaled" Huntsman to open many bottles of beer and a bottle of wine or two.  :drink:

My Classic came in handy for opening the battery compartments on a couple of the wee feller's new toys.  :D

Last Sunday the saw on my Swiss Tool deftly cut a stubborn tree root that got in the way while I was digging a grave for my aunt's dog. RIP Tim.  :(

Today my Hunstman was used to fix a zip on my wife's suit case and take apart one of the babby's toys for cleaning.

KTesh, when I said rotate round I meant during the actual design/production phase, not when they are installed. As you said their shape stops them from being rotated once made.

I do not remember how much I hurt myself... too long ago  :D

I used my Manager scissors to cut a nail!!

My wife used my Climber to cut packing tape when she put the Christmas decorations away. I have NOTHING to do with Christmas decorations in our house. I will though, be doing outside decorations next year. Details to come...........

I'm hoping to be using on of my SAKs to open my newest addition, the Vic Explorer!  I should have it in my hands within an hour or so I'm hoping.   :mail:

My new Explorer has the inline phillips, but I haven't had the need to use it yet.  I've been having some fun with the magnifying glass though :D

I used the saw on my OH Forester to score a section of stucco so I could demo it without taking the rest of the wall with it. It wasn't ideal, but I didn't have access to power for the sawzall yet, and it made just enough of a groove that a hammer and flat bar could break cleanly the rest of the way through.

I also used the Forester's big beefy bottle opener/screwdriver to pull out a bunch of staples that the hammer and flat bar just couldn't deal with. The stronger prybar-style screwdriver was worth the price of admission all on its own.

That poor Forester sure takes a beating, but that's what it's for.

The hook disgorger on my Champ helped me fix the washing machine yesterday.
Today I used the screwdriver on my MiniChamp to dismantle and reassemble my laptop.

Used the awl on my Alox Pioneer Rancher to carve my initials on the back side scale on my new Explorer.  Also had some more fun with the magnifying glass on the Explorer :D

Used my Alox Pioneer Rancher's pruner blade to open a pack of post-it notes here at work.  I love that pruner blade :tu:

Used the scissors on my Explorer to cut some archiving box number labels here at work, and used the pruner blade on my Pioneer Rancher to open some boxes.  Geez, it looks like I'm the only one who's used a SAK these past couple days :P :pok:

I use them every day. But I thought I should note only the extraordinary stuff and not daily cutting/ screwing.
That pruner is a Destroyer!
