Day 10
The spring clip on my 3blade Barlow money clip worked its way loose and popped off. I use the screwdriver to hold it open and get back into position.
My money clip is back in action.

( sorry I didn't think to take a picture while it was still in two pieces)
Good work, Noa! :like:

Poncho,  Great to see you pop in.  It is awesome to have all you guys folling us here.  Still not up to snuff and another long day on the road. 
Day 10
Mostly just along for the ride.  To bad it's 30 minutes through the mountain pass and 6 hours flat dry desert the rest of the way.

:ahhh
I hope it all goes well for you, Douglas! :cheers:

Didn't use a thing on it;  These sweatpants don't have pockets, and thus the only pocket I had was the chest pocket on my T-Shirt; and thus I had to carry something light, a Vic Bantam. I only used each tool once there; the blade to cut a zip tie; and the can opener on a rather large can of green beans because it was what was handy.  Would have used the Tough Tool if I'd not forgotten that it was in the same place where I took the photo yesterday.

Today, I started a restoration project on my great-grandfather's old coon hunting light, a 1930s Just-Rite carbide miner's cap light.   Some of the missing pieces are ridiculously expensive for what they are (we're talking $20-30 for tiny pieces); so it will likely be a cosmetic only restoration. I've already replaced one seal with an o-ring and the felts that go in a part of it I can make.   I'll probably just clean out the calcium buildup from the inside and polish the brass.  The body looks banged up and to the point it probably won't hold gas.

Great to see a great piece of technological history made to look good again. :like:

Great pics today guys :like:

Really like that old Miners lamp as well, Cody :o I know that coon hunters still used these up into the late 80's before starting to use battery lights around here :cheers:

My Granny use to tell me how they made fire works for the 4th of July out of carbide when she was young :ahhh I am sure they got quite a boom out of them :o :D Coal mining use to be big business around here but that has all died out and all the mines shut down :-\ last ones I remember shut down in the 80's as well :-[ Great to see that the light is in such great looking shape even if it isn't gonna be made to work again because of the expense :salute: :like:
Thanks, Poncho! :)

Day11
We have a failure!

Ok it is not a tool fail, just a bad impliment.
Remember the pic of my blunt, painted/coated can opener...it doesnt work.
Turns out the shoulder on the tang doesnt sit properly against the locking tab. This cause the tab to shift above the spine of the can opener and flex backwards.

A can opener is such a staple in the multitool world, how could they have messed it up so bad is beyond me  :facepalm:

Thanks for trying the Taylor TT can opener, Noa. Not too much lf a surprise there. :ahhh

But, lets keep in mind aside from the earliest US TT version, the majority of US made TTs have a wicked sharp and useful can opener. :)

First thing was reattaching the dog-tag type chain on my Craftsman keychain screwdriver. Then using the large screwdriver to remove two switch plate covers to prepare the wall behind them for painting, then after the paint dried to put them back on.   I also tightened another my grandmother had removed and replaced; but had left it a bit loose.   Scraper removed some paint buildup on the plastic covers, and the scribe opened up the bubble mailer to my new LM bit kit.




Poncho edit to show pic :cheers:

Turns out the shoulder on the tang doesnt sit properly against the locking tab. This cause the tab to shift above the spine of the can opener and flex backwards.

This put my TT out of commission for over a year. That back spring popped back like that and stayed, had no retention on any of the tools in that handle. Had to drill out the rivet bend it back and put a new bolt to hold the tools in the handle.

I'm a total legend..... in my own mind- Herley

Day 12: Finished for the day

Put a new alternator in my brother's Explorer today. TT was used for disconnecting/reconnecting the battery cables.

Unhooking/rejoining the intake tube.

Disconnecting and reconnecting the electrical connector.


Socket set was used for mounting bolts and relieving the serpentine tensioner.

ToughTool hanging out on the new alternator. :woohoo:
