That second one is callendar bound G-Man.
:like:  While I normally don't like larger folders (the exception being Folding Hunters); I've always had a thing for big folding rescue knives.  I mostly use this German-made Skedco Warfighter Extreme Medicine (Eickhorn PRT-IV); which opens really quick and a joy to use with gloves on. I just wish the regular PRTs were cheaper--these for a long time were $30 through many people dealing in military surplus (they were issued to combat medics in a rigging kit for MEDEVAC helicopters); while the standard PRT is $120. It also has a seatbelt cutter (cutting twine and opening clam pack, I've just about wore out the section of snap-off blade that forms the tool; and I don't know what type Eickhorn used; guessing OLFA) and a carbide glass breaker.


Meanwhile, on the opposite end of the spectrum of folder size, I chose the rare (as a USA model) USA Old Timer 106OT "Granddad's Old Timer" to supplement the TT; since the USA model never had scissors. Due to its rarity, I've used it as a shelf queen, not ever carried or used it. That had to change. So I cleaned it, sharpened it, and lubed it and started carrying it tonight.

Today's only use didn't come until just now, after taking today's photo. I used the scribe to peel an orange--it worked great!

I'm with the G-Man on those scissors,  also noticed you forgot to mention the mini-champ and it seems something else is playing a little "peek-a-boo" down in the corner.

Peeling oranges again with the scribe was today's use as well.

Here's my Tough Tool with a junker Craftsman 45471 Professsional Multitool; what would become the ST-5E Tough Tool. Think I paid $15 for it, basically everything but the pliers, file, bit driver, and saw are wrecked. . At the time, they were going for $120-something in great shape.   I've sourced the entire right handle (with blade, file, chisel, scraper, and can opener, just waiting to see if the seller has any Craftsman-stamped versions. So far, that only leaves pivots (still trying to find something that fits, I'll have to tear down the old junker ST-1 I had a long time before the one I am carrying in the challenge to get measurements) and a scribe awl (have not seen that particular tool as leftover from Ellenville).



By the way, does any company make a 5/16 to 1/4 hex adapter like the one that came with the ST-5E?  Guessing that's something that might be found in a multi-bit driver. I think the Klein works the same way; 5/16 shaft with an internal 1/4 "nut driver" that serves as an adapter for 5/16 bits. At present, I have an old 5/16 #2 Phillips bit that somehow ended up in my handmedown Chapman driver in it. Guessing I'll just buy a set of 5/16 bits. They're tough too; built for impact use.

Day18
Rewireing a lamp, mabey.
The pup chewed both lamp cords off. To make matters worse these are 1 time assembly with a several inteanal fittings you have to blindly snake the cord through(even though they look like they are 1pc of pipe).
I can route the the cord backwards (it wont clear the fittings & bends the other way) but will have to cut the plug and replace it if I do.
This pic was taken during clean-up/giving up for the evening. Sad thing... I used to do big mass transit wireing yet am defeated by a desk lamp.
 :facepalm:
Off day I guess.

When I bought the ST5E from ChopperCharles, he had outfitted the bit holder with a cut off(shortened) bit holder from a multi-driver, as you mention as a possibility. It works well enough and looks stock.

I sure hope you can get the TT to the point you want it. I personally ruined one USA version and one Taylor version trying to merge the two(the US TT had a bad pliers head).  :facepalm:

You can use a vacuum to suck a strong string through and tie the wire on it and fish it through. Small beaded chain(like bathtub drain chain) works even better for 3/8" lamp tube(the small chain can be shaken through the assembly, bypassing edges with the shaking).

Good luck, Noa! :tu:

Edit: Please ask any lamp questions you like, since I spent three years working on hundreds of different lamps every week in the few+ years I lived in NYC.

It wasn't high-security pot-metal like mine? :pok: :D

I love little safes, metal or plastic, and have one or two more in my storage somewhere.  :ahhh

Do you remember which brand you had? Some of those little safes sell fairly well.  :o
