Speaking of modded Center Drives, here's mine.  I replaced the serrated blade and awl with a u-shank holder from an MP600 Pro Scout. I also cut down one of the longer saw blades so that it fits in the CD. (they cut easily with a dremel and a cutoff wheel). I drilled and tapped holes and installed a titanium clip made for a Zero Tolerance knife. Finally, I made a custom lanyard using an old RCA connector I had lying around. I'm into hifi audio and I thought this was cool. It's attached with a quick-release so I can remove it when I use the CD as a screwdriver. (not really necessary, but if I'm screwing a lot then I'll remove it)

Could that Leatherman saw holder be modded into a CenterDrive, do you think?

Charles.

It could however just off the top of my head:

the LM pivot is larger
to clear the lock mech the surrounds might require thinning or it will push upwards which leads to...
likely need to arrange tools in the opposite handle for clearance
and lastly even with the holder fitted adding a saw or file etc will probably make it too long to store in the handle

You misunderstand. I would replace the locking blade with the saw and make it a bladeless multi tool. The remgrit holder would go back in my pro scout.

Perhaps even a sawzall blade would fit that large pivot instead of the t shank.

I did, sorry. I'm an idiot. Okay, let me try again:

liner lock angle will need changing over
the length might still be an issue

Well I’m pretty happy with my CD at the moment. I do use the knife far more than I ever did with my MP600, so maybe I’ll keep it as it is for a while.

What did you get the blade holder out of, in case I change my mind?

I was talking about the surge blade exchanger, same as in HG's post.

That is a really sweet mod!
