Welcome to MTo Looks like you'll fit in here quite well.The search for the "perfect" MT can take some time, money & work.Seeing as we have quite a reputation here as enablers, allow me to be the first Have a look at the Paladin series of MTs, these come with punchdown tools and wire strippers built in to the pliers in the larger two. They were specially made for Paladin by SOG, but were discontinued a while back. They do turn up for sale every now and then, but not very often. They are easy to mod, and SOG still sell various components to suit (but possibly not the Paladin-specific ones like the punchdown tools)For more info, see Chako's excellent thread:https://forum.multitool.org/index.php?topic=18777.0
Welcome!SOG has a wire stripper tool. I added it to my CenterDrive. Works OK, haven't decided whether to keep it or not.
Greetings. Well done on the modded Wave
Welcome ,love the mods, very nice ,looks factory done
Welcome 386greene,Nice Wave From another thread (not checked), regarding a Paladin being available: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,74525.msg1578546.html#msg1578546Maybe what you're looking for?
The double exterior keys was a pain though, and I still need to work on the little piece for the pivot, whatever it's called, to get it perfect, but I'm pretty proud I managed to do that one.
I'd love to see some close-up pics of this. I can imagine it was difficult getting both keys to fit nicely, especially the one on the opposite end from the pliers.
Nice - an external tool on a Wave at the end of the handle (circumventing the lock). I've never seen this done before. Making a liner lock at that end sounds complicated due to the very restricted space... but for a key it doesn't sound as if this really needs to be done (?). It might be necessary were one to contemplate any other tools in that position though...
Welcome to The work you have done on that Wave is awesome The Key idea has been done but not like what you have done with it Very creative Hope to see you more around the forum
386greene, would you consider posting here? -》 https://forum.multitool.org/index.php?topic=74592.0Sent on my SM-G930F with Tapatalk
The top key was actually nice and easy. It opens with one hand and locks up nicely. Really need to cut a new key for the bottom, I shaved that key down which I previously had with the internal tools and there wasn't really enough material to make a catch to open it And the inside of the cap part is still rough, need to finish it up, it's basically just a spacer for looks. There's nothing to lock the key open, but I think I could make some slots in the frame and make a new liner lock for it. Not sure if that will weaken the frame though.
