Nice one Barry! Let us know what you think of it. I've been carrying mine for months now - got to be nearly a year I think.
Cracking Super-Camper you have there, mags!  :tu:
I see there’s no liner between the saw and metal saw, are there any washers or anything in between?
And what did you do to get the sheepsfoot in there?
I like it. :dd:
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Thanks Donald. The saw and file can sit together without a spacer or washer.  The e-blade is packed out with a very thin washer and sits against the opener with just a bit of touching.   :tu:

I've been contemplating taking apart my Franken600 to put the file into my BO MP400. I don't get that much use out of the blade, really. But then I'd be annoyed by that one being incomplete. Maybe it's time to hunt down another abused one for parts.

This is weird for me, have had this MP400 for several months and primarily use the pliers. 
Today needed a knife, and had a issue deploying the blade. 

Is my unit assembled wrong?
The blade’s nail notch is on the inside and I must open the Phillips and the screw driver to access.

Hope yours is as good!

That's been an issue since I don't know when. Mine is exactly the same. I usually just pinch the blade and pull it out, so it's not really a problem for me. Still, it would be nice if Gerber stopped being lazy and put the damn nail nick on the other side  :rant:

Thank you for the info!
I checked the net and examined a few pictures finding many as mine and a few with a thru cut out notch (sport), that does not cause an issue.

I may get the dremmel  tool  and try cutting my own notch.  My big digits just cannot get a grip on the blade. 

Fortunately my Rebar was in my bag and able to make the switch.

I bought this 450(well...it was a 400 w/ broken scissors and I swapped in a file) a while back for $5. It had initials scratched into it THREE TIMES. It has been driving me nutty.
It needs some more work, but the initials are gone. :)

Thank you, Sam! :cheers:
Indeed it is!, but it will also get some carry time, since I won't be concerned with scratching the impossible to repair satin finish.  :)

Still haven't finished the polishing, but did fix the plier head to a hybrid tip. Part NN and part BN.
Now I can throw it into my pocket. :)

Sign is as well! Start to be quite happy with plier head. Rounded a bit but still fat tip to use head for nuts and stufs.

So I got these dirt cheap but my question is which do I open, the one on the left is newer and has gerber imprint dated 2017, the other says gerber USA on handle is 2015, I'm looking for the better sample for a user but assume the older one with USA might hold value better?

I will open the one on the right. Simply because I like the logo on the left alot. I have not see one with that logo though... 🤔
