Lets see what the OHT is capable off... share pictures and your thoughts and you might even win a price

Conditions to to be eligible for the GAW
1) Post here or in an individual tread a daily update of your OHT adventures
2) The challenge starts on March 1st and ends on the 31st
3) Must have earned the 30day OHT badge (so yeah, you can take a day off)

There will be a price, yes, certainly... but I haven't made up my mind yet as to what it will be.
I'm putting up a second price, for those who mod that beast (it is at my discretion to decide what is eligible here)

I'm in.

BUT, I will be away for four days on a motorbike trip. OHT will go with and I will update the posts on my return. We will not have any interwebby connectivity. Ah, the world without any electronic devices. If that is not OK, count me partially in.

My OHT may arrive in three days (along with another BO Core  :drool:), and I'll enter at that time when I can post a pic.  Thanks E for running this.  :salute:

I received my OHT today, so I'm definitely in.  My initial impression is that I like it more than I expected.  Yeah, its big and heavy.  But being big also makes it easy to handle when using the pliers.

Yeah not quite, no scissors file or awl and have you tried to use the saw yet cause it don't.
Can I use frankengerber the third instead?
Modifying the oht would be pretty difficult right now.

I suppose I'll need to locate a camera tonight.

It's been three months since I last used one.

What are the rules regarding other items, saks, mts, knives etc?

Try with the OHT first, if it doesn't work use something else. The job needs to be done and the challenge should not prevent that. Besides, we want to learn the limits of a tool, if we don't fail we probably didn't push enough.

I could totally get into Lego Star Wars.  It may be the missing link in my hoarding continuum of MTs, SAKs, knives, guns, lights and Maxpedition bags.

DAY 1:
Got a package yesterday and waited till today to open it with my OHT :ahhh

The blade did short work of the packaging and nicely freed my latest toy, although I have to say the blade is tiny for a tool of this size.
The Phillips fit the screw a lot better than expected :tu:.

I'm really looking forward to getting to know this tool. I think the long pliers-head will suit me well.

DAY 1:

Lil recently scored one of her sisters old boards. This week she asked if I could set it up better for her lighter weight.

First job was to replace the old pivot cups.

Second job was to loosen up the board for easier turning.

The softest bushings I could find were from a penny board. They needed a little encouragement.

Certainly wasn't easy but I got there.
