I had to contact them to order mine with their locking custom bit set. I have it around somewhere. Never used it as I ended up buying a bunch from Lee Valley as I got the impression from Burketek that there were not going to make more.

If you can’t find the original online maybe check out the Ti EDC Wrench at Kickstarter. Though I think it’s too much money.

Not sure about that Amazon knock off, I did consider it but decided I didn’t trust those folks to get the tolerances right.

Good luck my friend.

You can get a Chinese knockoff for a few $. The two I got are perfectly fine. The whole point of this design is that tolerances don't come in to play much. That is the reason it works on pretty much any nut/bolt that fits in.  :D

There is no magic therefore gadgets!

I wonder about those "locking custom bits". I know I can use the bits that come in Chapman sets on my PWII and they lock as well.

They work. But I’m sure any good quality ones will do. You can make do with any bit even the Leatherman bit but you’ll need to apply pressure to make sure it doesn’t slide out.
