Those little cutters just love chomping up stuff like chain and coat hangers. The long handles make it a joy to do the cutting. :)

The Taylor version cutters actually do work very well for cutting as well. I got bored one night and chopped up a bunch of 55lb jack chain with the US amd Taylor versions.

GLBM, it's good to hear the cutter quality carried over, like you I've chomped through a lot of hard wire over the years  :cheers:

Tools used; blade opening the feed for the sheep we bought today and pliers for twisting wire to repair the busted hay feeder (bale spear hung on it a couple weeks back; tearing off the piece that holds it in on the other side). Eventually, it needs to be welded back on.

Along with my Tomica towing and recovery equipment; the old (1970s-1980s) Peterbilt 359/Holmes 750 "American Wrecker" (and a good choice, as the 750 remains popular with many towing companies to this date) and the Hino Profia/Century 1040SDU modeled after a unit used by the Yokohama Municipal Fire Bureau's Super Rangers Urban Search and Rescue team.

Very cool, Cody! :like:

Day 14:

I forgot to put the TT in my pocket before work today. I felt naked without a multitool. :facepalm:
I'm glad to be home with the ToughTool. :D

Day 14
Not much going on today; the only thing I used the TT for was to grab a hot pan out of the oven.
So here's a pic of the combo I'm carrying today note this is nowhere near being my full EDC.

Day 15:

Retrofitted some lights on an old coke machine bezel. Florescent tube for the top and a night light for for the bottom. I'll post a pic of it lighted later today. :)

Photos are out of order. Thanks imgur. :ahhh

The finished project. I ordered some new inserts, but it'll be a while until they come in.
The zip tie on the top is where I put the price tag on. Not part of it. Haha

Day15
This has absolutely nothing to do with the tool. Today I'd rather talk about the sheath.

The Taylor version of the Tough Tool comes with a very nice sheath that I honestly question if it isn't worth more than the tool itself. Seriously for a $15 tool this is probably a 10 to $15 sheath if you were to buy it separately retail.( not counting deals & steals of course)
Tools at this sub 20$ price point generally come with either the thinnest nylon possible or nothing at all.

Thick padded condura; a molded belt clip that's held in with a rivet yet still has a little bit of movement to make it comfortable to wear; as well as a belt loop underneath the clip all make this a pretty decent sheath. An added bonus given that the tough tool is a full size tool the sheath is large enough to hold almost any other multi-tool.

Didn't do much, only thing I did was using the scraper to remove some congealed toothpaste I couldn't remove from the cap light restoration project.   

Decided to give the Remington a break, and carried something similar,  the Noble Outfitters Hunter.  Probably the only Chinese knife not made by Rough Rider that I can honestly say I like. I've been wanting one since its partially serrated cousin, the Viper came out years ago in the various equine catalogs.  Seems to be a very well made knife, especially from a clothing company; and in many cases, with those, you're paying for the brand (I'm looking at you Eddie Bauer!).  Lately, it's been a work knife clipped to my coat.

I have to agree on the sheath. I wore mine for a while last year and it never started sagging and the Velcro stayed firm the whole time. :)

Thanks guys.
Day 16
Replacing a fryer thermo-pile generator.

The driver worked perfect but the odd handle shape of the TT made it awkward to use in this confined space.
