No Chance to Take Pics Yet when putting my Center Drive to Work but So far when needed at Work with Mischief Making Light Cords and Jammed Straps Performing as Advertised...The Only Weakness I still feel is going with a Dedicated Serrated Blade versus a Saw..I would have rather had a Combo Edge Main Blade or Gerber to have had an Option and had the Saw Blade..I still feel as a Trades Tool the Saw Blade has lots to Offer..

Day 8

A bit of office chair maintenance for one of my guys. The new wheels arrived to replace his broken ones so easily flipped out the old ones with the pry bar on the CD

Nice job Kevin!  I used the awl as a staple puller today.

Nice one.

What do you think of the awl?  It seems a bit wide, yet the material is thin. I want to take some off it's width but because it's so thin I think it will weaken it too much.

I agree Kevin.  That was the first time I used it.  I've used the SAK awl thousands of times but this one seems so thin.  I can see it as a cutter for cardboard, tar paper, etc.

Day 9

Today's usage was while out doing DSEAR area classification reviews at our BOS plant (Basic Oxygen Steel making). No on site pics due to them being atex Zone 2 (triple flare stack) and 21 (de-sulfuring plant) and no cameras allowed due to the flash (and they are too cheap to buy me an atex rated camera), so I took a desk shot of my CD and a bing maps shot of the locations.  Magnesium dust from the de-sulph plant gets everywhere. CD needed a clean with WD and a dry with an air hose afterwards.

I hate going to BOS plant, I always feel gritty afterwards.

Now that's a mill Kevin!!  I grew up about 45 minutes Northeast of Pittsburgh and remember those days.  I think I still have that grit on me!!
Not even close to the heat you deal with, but used my pliers to hold a match to light a burned down candle.

I have run in to a slight difficulty with the Center Drive Thirty Day Challenge..Nothing Wrong with the Tool but The Sheath is starting to fail...and I will Admit a bit Uncomfortable due to it's Width and how low it hangs on the Belt I know it can be carried Horizontally but I don't Trust the Velcro to protect and retain my Asset..Any Other Center Driver Owners Run in to this Issue? I'm Thinking of switching to a Sheath for One of My Gators which I normally Pocket Anyways due to it's Light Weight and stashing the Bit Kit in another Pocket..Right Now until I resolve it I will keep mine on Standbye in my Work Bag and use my MP400..So Far other than a Saw versus a second Fully Serated Blade it is the Only thing I dislike..I will Admit it is a Big Boy when it Comes to Multi Tools...I think on a Tool Belt as a Quick Grab and Do or in a Bag the Sheath is probably Ok but for Belt Carry not the Greatest

As far as Gerber sheaths  go I don't mind it, but you definitely notice it on the belt!
