Got a package in the mail today from kwakster! :cheers:

The flat iron tools and a set of Super Tool size sockets. :)







First thing I'm noticing about these sockets is that they were not originally made with the Leatherman-knurled-screw pattern. Nope, they started out as standard 7/32 inch hex sockets, made by Stanley/Proto, part number 6907H.



Then the knurl pattern was cut in them using a wire EDM (electrical discharge machining) process. A signature of this process is the rust-colored tarnish residue, as can be seen in the socket close-up photo above.

Anyhow, the sockets work perfectly,as would be expected. I've already managed to put them to work on a Super Tool :D

It could just do with being completely dismantled and properly cleaned up really.  Plus, the handles are really loose on it now.

Dunc

While special sockets are impossible to find, pocket clips for the Kick model only cost $5.00. They work perfectly as wrenches to disassemble the medium-size Leatherman knurled screws. :)





Best of all, I'm sure Leatherman never considered that possibility. >:D :D

Ofcourse they should be cut in the middle so you can use both sides, that was at least my the original intention,

Waiting since 2011 for DaveK to send back my personal Leatherman maintenance tools....

Help needed with a Leatherman micra
« Reply #55 on: June 07, 2019, 01:59:45 AM »
Hey fellows,

I have been trying to work on a Leatherman micra and haven't had any success. I am trying to get those star shaped bolts off and have tried heat, oil, vise grips, hot water, wd-40 and prayer. And I cannot get them off. I have a few of these that I got for a good price and I'm trying to clean a couple up to give to a friends kids and I'm trying to mod the others. The only things that I have seen that might help me is a tool that was made by kwakster. If you guys know of anything that may help me get these bolts off would be greatly appreciated.
