Cybertool 41 Zeiss glass magnifier addition and magnet
« on: February 18, 2018, 06:16:27 PM »
I'm sorry if this is not what some might have expected. I did not yet look into peening etc.

So what's this about then?

Well, after restoring/fixing my '91 Swiss Champ I wanted to stop using it on a daily basis. So I was looking for a modern replacement and settled for a Cybertool 41.

I wanted better drivers and had no use for the fish scaler.

First thing I've added was a magnet to the bit holder. Boy, it was not easy to get it cleanly down in there with super glue on it (I mean the magnet). The magnet had its own mind.
Anyhow, I was happy with the result and use it frequently with the additional bits I've bought.




However, I did seem to miss the magnifier of my Swiss Champ sometimes.
So I had a look for a potential donor and found this old "Cyber" Shot (he he), and it went like this...












Fits perfectly into​ the space under the bit holder...





Cover for scratch protection...




It also works as a close-up lens for my mobile/cell phone.






Cheers,

Matt

Thanks guys, there always seems to be an optic element in pocket cams that can be used as magnifying glass. And it's fun to take them apart  :D

The space under the bit: holder goes a bit further underneath the bit-magazine. That's where the mags handle rests.

One could also tuck other things into it I guess. Like tinder...

Awarded.   :tu:   Congrats on your first badge.   :cheers:

Placing magnets can be a right nightmare. I keep an old camera lens on my desk, quite fun to use.   :like:

May I ask what you use it for?
For some emergency situation?

In case I need to solder something. Ribbon solder and a lighter can get it done.
Much of what is on the Cybertool is ideal for fixing small electronic stuff.
