Hi Crokan,
Nice work and nearly what l am currently planning for a Wave - the parts are on their way from Loki.
Basically l was going to do the same but l was going to keep the large flat driver and loose the tiny scissors. These will be replaced by Wingman scissors or maybe SAK scissors instead of the serrated knife.

Did you have any issues when you removed the plier rests? My donor wave is a newer one with the thicker rests rather than the earlier flimsy ones that can be easily bent out of the way.

Cheers George

I would keep the scissors and you could always track down ine if the bit adapters that fit over the LM square Phillips and make it a bit driver that will work with the flat bits and regular hex bits :tu:

So just to clarify, you bent the thicker type of Wave plier post with a screwdriver?
I thought that it looks too thick to bend out of the way and l was thinking of filing them off or even putting them on the mill.
Also as l'm new to this game, l'm not sure which pin l need to hammer down to size?
Cheers

Hi Crokan,

Thanks for your explanation, this will only be my third mod a most complicated  - the first was a Kick with a saw and scissors and the second was a PST Il with a pocket clip.

Yes my plan was to just remove the plier rest pin.

Do you think the big phillips and the awl + long small screwdriver will work if l just file/mill away the plier rest pin?

I think l now  know what you ended up doing. I guess the blade lock needs to come out in order to fit the rebar plier head.

At this point in time l was going to leave the Wave pliers.

Cheers

George

The plier rest is removed to fit the 3d phillips in.
The blade safety lock is removed to lower the 3d phillips when used with the rebar head so that the handles can close.
Sometimes the tolerances are off so remove the pin and check the fit first before removing the blade safety lock.
The wave scissors can also cause the handle gap.
If you get stuck, holler.

I really love it.  I don't at all like the eyeglass screwdriver.  I might have tried to trade your scissors for a large flat head.  Nice work though man -- not a fan of bit exchangers in the tool itself.

Agreed. The bit exchangers seem like an awesome idea but l recently came to the conclusion that a 3D phillips, a small/med screwdriver nd a large screwdriver are all that are really needed as far as drivers go. The 3D phillips has a bit kit and this is superior to the normal Wave/Charge driver set up.

My plan is to go with the above 3 drivers and have;
a) an awl and a can opener and change the serrated blade for the Wingman/SAK scissors
or b) keep the original scissors and choose between the awl and the can opener

If only there was room for one extra tool on the Wave...
