Ripped some pesky large staples out a box I needed to open...
Well done, mate! Where did you get that Wave+ pliers head? ;)

ST300: Serrated blade cutting back some bushes; Phillips working on a grill (which was toast and was falling apart, it got replaced at Lowe's today when my folks learned they had a comparable model on sale for $100)

The eye glass screwdriver on the TTi is very good at adjusting the screws on a watch. Loving the TTi more and more.

Great uses folks.
I put the P2 for use, it got me to the ribbon cables where... While reverse engeneering the happenings... Most likely due to milk spill some time ago,... the contacts got coroded.
Funny thing, TV works, instead of a full screen with dead lines i have 2 that don't work... So i'l have to insist with the alcohool

I had to negotiate a repair on my ceiling-fan.  It seems the three-speed fan switch snapped the ferrule-off, where the pull-chain goes through.  A new switch was called for.  The mighty Wave Plus helped on the disassembly.







Mission accomplished, new switch!

I put together an IKEA paper holder using my P-2. All four screws.

I needed the multimeter yet one cable broke and i had to resolder it, so here came the P2 for the rescue. Quite happy with the easy axx to the tools, at least for this low force, skilled craftsmanship that i'm doing :)
Kinda late for a reply but it looks like you are stripping the cable with the awl. Did you know that the P2 has a wire stripper build into the tool?

that wire stripper is for a determined thickness, it's easier with that sharp side of the awl

Allright allright allright, so... I've used the Free P2 quite intensive the last 2 days in da house. I like the ease of deployment, it came in hand, jobs did not involved a lot of torque to be aplied, the 2 philips and straight screwdrives had most action. P2 failed me on the small screw on the TV remote battery cover.

Did a small bikeride in the evening just to get some fresh air.
Right before dusk I noticed my bike light became a bit loose and was flickering.

BO ST200 for the rescue! Tightened the nut holding the light, and then taking the plug connecting the light to my hub dynamo apart to find one cable loose. Put it all together and light was on again!

Sorry folks, but no pics of a black tool in the dark  :whistle: :facepalm:
