Inner tube sheath for Pocketwrench II
« on: January 10, 2013, 04:49:02 AM »
My PocketWrench II lives inside a "sheath" which is merely a section of bicycle inner tube.  I used a hole punch to punch a hole for occasional keychain carry.

I do use inner tube for different tasks, too. Nice idea - Did you close the lower end? If yes, what kind of glue did you use?

It will (mostly) disappear after a while.

I always have a tube or 2 hanging in the shop to cut out small rubber bands to hold cords together or make padding layers under parts mouted together.

I left this particular sheath open. 

I use Slime brand rubber cement to glue other inner tube projects.  You can find this product with other tire repair products in the auto parts department of big box stores.

Inner tubes lose most of their odor after being left to air out.  I've obtained most of my inner tube material free as discards from bicycle repair shops just for asking.

Here is another example of a simple inner tube sheath I made for belt carrying a knife.

Very clever idea!  I like the horizontal carry myself as i spend much of my day sitting and many vertical carry sheaths just seem to be in the way. I'll have to try this.

BTW, nice knife. I have several of the larger Vics, a Sentinel and a Rucksack and wanted to get a Trekker too.

Parnass:  Excellent Design. Thank you for the gift. Hope I can repay the favor someday! I love my OHT. I like the horizontal Carry also. Most of mine are vertical. I'll try my vertical 'pinch pockets' out of innertube. I have in the past, done the same design with tubular webbing. It was not as 'slick' as your 'elastic' tube version. The elasticity makes it. Thanks for releasing this into public domain!
