Flathead/Combo Tool Uses
« on: July 16, 2018, 06:12:25 AM »
For some the combo tool is expendable, others invaluable. Here are a a few uses I've discovered it is handy for. 1. Phillips screwdriver 2. Butterfly screw wrench 3. Pop can opener (for those with short fingernails) What are some uses you've discovered for it besides the basic functions? Get creative, and post pics please  :D

I have used it on various SAKs to pry nails from cardboard boxes at work. They are nailed to a wooden skid.

Also used my Wave...

Wonderful pics and uses!

Interesting, came across a scene where Macgyver used the flathead as a sort of feeler gauge for a prong he welded/rigged to a spark plug. Wonder how that would work in real life? Maybe etch measurements on the spine of the tool for added function?   :think:

How do you feel about this "Macgyver" character stealing your name?  :think:

total copyright infringement Haha in all seriousness I've always been a MacGyver fan. Since I was 10 or so. My dad called me "MattGyver" when I picked up my first Victorinox at a hardware store and the name sort of stuck

I'm with you there, styx. That little piece of metal can be used in limitless ways if you put some thought into it  :tu: :cheers:
