On an unrelated note... how does one unsubscribe to a thread?  :think:
Anyway you can't unsubscribe.  You're a part of this now.

Yeah Gman was right.  :cheers: I got too grinder happy.. was actually trying out something but didnt quite get it right. So the extra fine tip was a correction on the failed idea. I am the only one using it so I am very mindful of the capability. Light duty and saved my arse a few times when I needed a ultra flat needle pliers.

That is a super nice profile for light duty, Sam. Well done. :like:

Here is the hybrid design I ultimately decided on. Half way in between needle and blunt.

So...

Thanks to magentus' generosity, firiki is now the happy owner of a GERBER MP400 series tool containing both file and scissors.



Not sure whether this is a model 425 or a 475 or a 425/75/4?? one, firiki is going to call this one Maggas (μάγκας, don't expect everything served on a plate, look it up!) as the name seems fitting.

Maggas is a great mod because the knife blade originally found on it is a) facing the wrong side of the handle, b) of the awful, combo edge variety, c) probably quite bad (although, to know for this for sure, firiki would have to use said knife blade first  :angel: )



By removing this knife blade, you get a very useful toolset that's also legal to carry around (in most countries, at least so I assume?)

In modern Greek language, mangas has become a synonym for "swash guy, swagger" or (in dialogue) simply "dude"; depending on context it may have more negative ("bully, henchman, hooligan") or more positive ("brave, crafty man") connotations.

Here you see firiki and his good friend and everyday battle companion HappyDuck rejoicing over shiny new gear. firiki decided to remove his emotional armour for a moment and show he can still smile and has even allowed for this rare instance to be photographed!



HappyDuck notes that these few spots of surface rust prove magentus does indeed live in a U-boat.  8)

Our top U Boat scientists are attempting to develop an army of nanobot rust digesters that don't turn on their masters once the rust has all been eaten. We have the kind that do turn on us, but luckily we can keep them in rust for the next 5 years or so.

Nice to see firiki and HappyDuck in a good mood. :tu:

All in all, I wasn't expecting to like this MP400 model so much. It is fairly lightweight and being compact enough it makes a good candidate for pocket carry (firiki carries a sheath on his belt practically never).

The plastic lock tabs feel quite sturdy and provide a useful, additional cushion to grip and squeeze on. The locks should continue to work well even if the tabs were partially damaged.

I didn't feel any hotspots hurting my palm. :tu: It is possible to pinch one's palm between the handles but not easily.

Overall, the tool feels solid enough for it's size. I wouldn't want to turn size 17 bolts with the pliers or turn M10 screws with the drivers but I doubt they ever were within the tool's scopes anyway.

I'll report back once I've formed a better opinion.

Again, thank you very much, magentus  :multi:

I'm pretty sure that's what's holding the U-boat together as well, apart from magentus.

This means they can hardly ever surface to replenish air supplies and this, in turn, would explain many things  :think:

Your chief alchemists might need glorious amounts of pure 24K gold to make the reaction work -and a few pinches of unobtainius firmus officinalis. Can't be more precise, that would be no fun, sorry (not).

HappyDuck is on a permanent natural high, I'm afraid, that gives him a constant cheerful disposition. It's a bit irritating at times but also makes HappyDuck a great camarade.

Ooooh, I almost forgot:
