But Lynn, who's to say you didn't pay for each of the individual items in the parcel?
First tool in the $10 MT Challenge is a brand new IDL T5!https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,75709.0.html
I do like IDL tools!
Next up, a legitimate contender, the Plier Wrench, the generic version of the 'Jeep H07', or 'Jeep Cretaceous'.https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,75808.html
We have passed a threshold in this challenge.From this point on, all of the tools are name-brand, and 'used'. Some are VERY used. You are warned.THERE WILL BE RUST!
THERE WILL BE RUST!
So... here's a valuable bit of information for anyone who might be considering getting used Swiss Army Knives off of ebay.If you do, make yourself a 'tool pick'. The top one is 12-gauge copper wire, hammered a bit flat, then filed. The middle one was a penny cut with metal shears, hammered out. The third is a Chinese brass/bronze coin, cut with dremel and sanded to a fine point. However you make it, make it of copper, brass, or bronze. Actually, the newer U.S. pennies are zink, and that's fine too. Those metals can be used to pick at the harder stainless steel without fear of damaging it. It also holds up pretty well. I tried using bamboo skewers to clean grime out of used Swiss Army Knives. I tried paper, folded in various ways. Softish metal seems to be the best. And from my experience, the odds are that you will NEED a tool to pick a lot of grime out of your 'gently used' Swiss Army Knife.
After these last two tools, I have to say, I'm AMAZED at how well tools can clean up with a little effort. Both the Explorer and Micra needed a fair amount of work, but came right back to life.I believe I can say that I'm a fan of this 'Stainless Steel'. I think it's really going to catch on.
And it tastes just like WD-40 too! Amazing!
I'm pretty sure my husband thinks that I believe WD-40 is an air freshener.
