Good idea Poncho. I didn't know that. I read somewhere too that the discontinued Tool Adaptor will fit. Not sure which generation. I saw one for sale for $24.99, and another site had them for $90.

Either of those that are discontinued would work but the one I am talking about just fits over the Phillips driver and you can use both the LM flat bits and reg 1/4" bits in it :tu:

This seller (https://www.ebay.com/itm/192710689221) probably jumped thru the roof with joy when having his hand on this "rare piece".  :facepalm:

The skeletool has its uses and limitations as well. Great for minimalist approach, good as a day hike/office tool. Not heavy duty but not heavy to carry. i always think of the signal as a skeletools big brother. just wish they would go back to the slimmer grip early models. The extra cost of the sx with carbon fiber and better 154 cm blade is also a bit of a catch. I bought my sx used on the bay for less than a new reg model, now the prices are climbing. All in all a good tool for some. Very handy for non recessed screws etc. use the bit kit and a good all around device.. I have the rescue model also and would like to see the glass breaker bit sold seperately, their interpretation of whats needed in a 154 cm serrated blade isnt the best for every day tasks, but supposedly great for rescue work. its a good solid design.

I like the Skeletool, but it’s in and out of my office daily carry. Takes too much space as I prefer to carry a dedicated folder. Plus too many crevices and holes to clean. Spacewise the LM MiniTool and Cadet is much better with same functionality IMHO.
But I go back once in a while. It’s a great tool.

I was able to score the glassbreaker bit so I have that now in the regular Skelly with 154CM PE. Though I believe that the newer cars have glass that you no longer can shatter but have to saw.

My favorite part of the skeletool is to get to the screwdriver all you have to do is open the handle, no fishing out the bit holder after.
