Haha, this is why I love modding. Everyone needs something different.

Oh like this? :rofl:

That's one way...but not the cleanest or fastest. I need to make a vid of the method. You need to break the lip of the lid so that it releases from the can.


On a side note, I think I'm narrowing down a set of Leatherman knife setups for different activities.

Love that mod, Synco :like:

Great family pic of the LM knives, HG :like:

The Charge/Wave/Surge knives are great for me (need to make a SURGE one :facepalm: :D ) but I can see that they have plenty of limits and that is why I normally carry mine as a compliment to a regular MT :salute:

actually I put the surge back together..I just can't see how a surge/ST300 hybrid ever makes sense. The shears on the Surge are unlike any other scissors on a MT, and unlike even the biggest of the Vic Scissors, it can cut some stupidly hard materials. I did however put it back together with sissors on the same side as the straight blade so I can easily open it one handed from the same pocket position.  One thing would make it perfect in my mind...a full 1/4 inch bit driver instead of the Serrated blade on the outside... Think a Center drive, without the suck... I have reason to believe that the Center drive 1/4 inch driver might even work in the surge.

Cheers,
H.G.

Perhaps a SOG one? :dunno:  Easier to obtain. https://www.sogknives.com/type/accessories/1-4-driver.html

The one handed part is what is so appealing imo. Plus that requires an intermediary socket holder so its not going to be all that stable. At that points I might as well just carry a Leatherman Bit extender.

Still better than the BuckTool. :salute:

yea, that one was shi...err...crappy...  at least I now know for sure there is a relatively efficient way to open cans with just pliers. (check general discussion forum)

So... Did my thinking, pondering..and just did it.



Still needs two mods to the bit drivers and a Vic scissor but it's a thing of beauty

 :iagree:

So what all did you do in this mod :think: I believe it is bi-colored but it is a bit hard to tell in the pics :think:

So it is noticably different from the bicolor model for a number of reasons. As far as internal tools are concerned I used large spaces on one side to accomidate a modified bit driver after I cut out the sides. On the other side I need to drill a small hole through the bit driver in a specific location (still working it out) so that I can lock a series of T-shank bits and blades in there in addition to the normal tools.

Eventually I should have:

1/4" bit driver (straight blade side)
AWL
Hybrid bit driver-
*takes leatherman bits
*takes T-shank blades (locks in with small clip or even a paper clip)
*takes exacto blades (using simple adapter)

And once I get a 91mm Vic scissor I can begin working on replacing the serrated blade.

So this is a work in progress but I wanted to see how it looked before I finished it. I also want to gently grind down the lock connections so that I can close it one handed, not just open it one handed.

Cheers,
HG

I like the bi-color part :salute: Hope that the 1/4 inch bit holder works out the way you want and you can get some 91mm Vic scissors in :cheers:

I can tell already that it is substantially weaker, but does work for all buy stubborn screws and a hard crank. For me that's not acceptable. So I'll try a different solution.

why dont you cut it half way down(or even a third) maybe itll be a bit stronger.

 :iagree:

Also could we get some close up pics of the half Blast :think: Did you have to drill the tools out or did you use a smaller pivot on the plier end part? :ahhh

I used the pliers pivot from the Blast, was same diameter as the Surge T-shank . Just had to grind the Tshank  , in order to open-close normally. Pics will follow

Got a lot of goodies in the mail this weekend including a Sidekick and Wingman. I realized very quickly after disassembling the Sidekick that the pocket clip perfectly fit over the Kick's clip hole. All I needed was to drill a hole in the frame..


But of course I couldn't stop there so I added some parts from a BO Blast and a full Rebar plier head...

I call it the Knifeless K-Bar



This might actually be my new favorite carry for my Job, since its really not a knife friendly place.

Cheers,
H.G.
