Unfortunately removing the unlocking bars makes it lock like an OG SuperTool. But, with even more crude action required to work the tool. The non-locking versions are much better.I have repaired and modified two of my locking Bears to work perfectly, but it takes a boat load of grinding, filing, and finger-crossing.
That two-tone looks great! What a shame they don't care about their MT line. My Bear Jaws and mini Jaws are nice.
Does the non-locking version also lock like an OG SuperTool?I may need a photo comparison of locking Vs non-locking mechanisms...
Non-locking are like the PST.
Some Bears. Craftsman, Toolzal Pro and Moore Maker made by Bear.
Very nice assortment, David! Thank you for sharing the pics.
