My Latest Leatherman Mod ...
« on: December 29, 2012, 08:33:16 PM »
I did have a little assistance on this one. I needed a BO awl and Metropolicity made an excellent one for me from a medium screwdriver (and very effective it is too), and thanks also needs to go to Farmman for the build venue, use of the dremel, and for keeping me supplied with cups of tea to stop my mouth drying out from swearing  :D

Anyway, enough of the Oscars acceptance ... piccies ...



Yes, it's BO and orange cerokoted. Basically it's a cerokoted Fuse merged with a BO Blast, topped off with Metro's awl.



It's another knifless concoction, which is fine for me as I always have a separate knife and prefer that to using multitool blades

The loadout ...





I've ditched the medium driver in place of the awl, and would be carrying this with the Phillips mounting bit adapter to handle the rest of the driver requirements. I also decided to go for the mini-driver in place of the can opener, as I can improvise bottle opening facilities easier than spectacle fixing facilities  :whistle:



All that was left to sort out was the name ... although in fairness once I'd decided to go ahead and buy the necessary ingredients, their was only one name it could have based on it's starting point and it's livery .... the Fuse-ilier  ;)

Al,I was wondering why you were interested in how the orange Fuses were wearing,now I know!

Looks very good mate.Which tool did you get the saw and the file from?

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

All the innards (including the plier head) was from a Black Oxide Blast, with the exception of Metro's custom awl. Which means shortly I'll have another tool with BO exterior and stainless innards  :D

It is actually   :D But quite nice because of it  ;) It was only recently I discovered there isn't even a cinema here - you have to go to Meadowhell or Donny. People still use local shops round here instead of going to big brand retain chains ... weird huh?  :P :D :D

All tongue in cheek mate  ;) Local banter between Sheffield and Rotherham, but in reality I'm a Sheffield lad too  ;) ... although the bit about no cinema is true  :)

Looks like your official mascot was beaver too!  I know that was for sure my unofficial mascot for the 1st year of university too.  I lived in a dorm of 500 people, only 10% male....   :D

 :D I'm quite impressed I got through the strip down and rebuild without causing any damage. I still think this would be better sheath carried rather than pocket carried and clattering against coins and keys though as I normally would :)

Al you are not going to baby it & keep it rugged up in it's sheath  :think: :think: :D

I reckon it will scratch up but it will be interesting to see how it does wear  :think: :think:

Oh, it'll get used for sure, just sheath carried rather than pocket   ;) Just cos I use everything doesn't mean I subject them to more agro than necessary  :D :D

I don't see this as an everyday tool for myself as I don't need a woodsaw, file or bit adapters that often ... but I didn't have a knifeless option for when I do need that stuff ... now I do  :D
