Have a safe trip Nix :cheers: :salute:
+1  :tu:

Yes the challenge is still starting on the 1st of June  :tu:
And would love to see more members joining us
Sorry again for the mix up Nix  :facepalm: :tu:

I'm looking forward to this challenge. Will be my first SOG challenge and first time being with only one of the newer SOG models.
Heck, I'll be happy, even if just four of us are brave enough to ride out 30 days solely using the PowerAccess/Access Deluxe.  :pok: = people sitting this one out.  :D

The PowerPint indeed. Last one in the set needed is the PowerLitre when I can get one. The Pint is pretty cool for what it is. :)

I've got a few bottle rockets. Maybe strap them to the PAD and see if it'll move a little.  :D

BTW. Now the FBI will be keeping tabs on the PowerAccess challenge thread.  :ahhh  :D

Only fondled it a little and briefly looked at the tool complement. Pliers system seems well thought out, as well as the use of the available space overall. Some tools seem flimsy in comparison with e.g. LM, such as the can opener and knife blades. Also, the locking bar springs look adventurously underdesigned...

Used the caliper and found the implements to be notably less robust. Just as DT estimated. However, with that being said, the tools ARE shorter than a ST300's tools. So torsion failure should be SLIGHTLY reduced on the thinner shorter tools of the PAD.
Half a millimeter thinner blades and drivers compared to the ST300. The can openers are equal in thickness though. :tu:

First two pics are can opener and second two pics are plain blades.
Following post will be large flat head driver.

The large flat driver.
Don't forget to grind down(or use a coarse sharpening stone perpendicular to the tip) the flat tip on the PAD large flat head driver to make the point much thicker/stronger. 0.3mm or 0.4mm of material removed should do the trick. :tu:

Thanks for the measurements gerleatherberman, hadn't taken a caliper to it yet. True, overall size of all blades and implements is more compact than I know for LMs of comparable size, but I put this down to the additional space needed in the SOG for the plier mechanism and the PAD does seem to optimise space use (and weight) more than comparable LMs generally do.

Nice picture and congrats on getting the PAD!
Indeed, the pliers and outside tools create compromises. I am just going to try and not over exert the tools if possible during the challenge. I really like the design and engineering aspects of the PAD though. :)

One thing I like a lot already is the bit set and the possibilities on the PAD to use it, including the 90° lock stop on the stub for the bit driver extension.

Another is the sheath's Molle attachment that also permits horizontal carry on narrower belts...
