Day 13: Bought some bubble mailers to send out free Vic knives; had to remove the plastic wrap.

My new Vic Work Champ had defective pliers (the jaws were missing teeth) and Amazon sent me a new one.  While checking it out, I noticed that the mini screwdriver was screwed into the corkscrew so tightly that I couldn't remove it.  Rebar to the rescue.

Ironic that I used the Rebar to fix the Vic.


Were you the guy who asked in the Swiss Army Collectors FB page about how to remove the miniscrewdriver from the corkscrew?  :D
No, I actually figured it out myself.  Thanks for asking.

Day 20: My wife bought a HUGE clock after watching HGTV.  I was going to mount it on the wall, but I dropped it!  It bent the hands pretty bad.  Enter the Rebar.

Bent hands.





Took off the brass nut holding the hands on, straightened the hands. and reattached the brass nut.

She noticed and boy is she mad.  You guys are safe, though.  I manned up and took the hit.  Maybe I'll use the Rebar to break out of the doghouse.

Day 21: My son had borrowed my tools and the socket set was a little rough.  Decided to take out the sockets and clean everything but the ones close to the edge have to be pried out.  I always used my Mountaineer but this is a Rebar Challenge.

Day 19: Got my TEC P-7 suspension clip today.  Using the Rebar to measure different Sbiners to decide which one to use.

(Image removed from quote.)

I really like the P-7, but not $12 more than my homemade clip.  Too late now.

You can basically get the same clip from an online place for less than $1 each.

Day 22: Having squash and onions as part of my dinner tonight.  Pics show cutting the squash; onion came later.



For some reason I feel the Rebar is more comfortable this way when doing repetitive slicing tasks.

Extend the Serrated blade and you have weapon.

Day 23: Enjoying a fine bottle of wine.  Opened with the Workmate.



Oh, wait, this is a Rebar Challenge..... :o

Had pizza and it was too hot  and the crust was droopy.  Cut into pieces with the Rebar.



Sorry about that.  Friday night, a friend with expensive red wine, carrying a Rebar AND a Workmate.  I was confused.
