Inspired by your somewhat recent acquisition of a polished SideClip, Steve, I finally polished up my beater SideClip.  :)
Decided to go full SwissTool polish level. Every single piece was high polished using progressively finer compounds on an 8" 1750RPM wheel.








Stock SideClip to show what I started with, but imagine a satin SC with lots of scratches.

Obviously it isn't absolutely perfect, but it is pretty close(to Vic level anyway). :ahhh

I will say, I don't know what steel LM used for the handles, but it was harder to polish than SS watch case 316L for sure.

Pontificating particularly pious positions pertaining to polymorphic paraphernalia. G-Man.

Great job removing the logo   :tu:

They must have made a smurf ton of those Timberland branded SC as there are two on ebay at the moment and I've seen quite a few over the years.

Now you've said that, I don't feel so bad removing the logo... it's sometimes hard not to feel a little bit of a vandal doing stuff like that.
It's true what you say though, I've seen shed loads of them too... and they're going for silly money on ebay too... or at least that's what they're asking, but not necessarily getting.  :think:

Cool pics!

You got me right! There is nothing left to say. I never get tired of keno casino jeux gratuits sans telechargement ni inscription. I spend most of my time at that site. That's what I'm doing right now.

I wasn't completely happy with my clean-up job on the Sideclip. So, today, between jobs, I stripped it down completely, repolished and rebrushed the components and swapped out the medium screwdriver which was badly twisted (I love having a bit box!). I'm quite chuffed with the end result, it really is an elegant and wonderfully engineered tool.

Thanks fellas! I'm exceedingly happy with it, it's probably my joint favourite multi now - it's up there with my old stainless PST... It's just so beautifully engineered.
