Squirt with a bit driver - too much?
« on: August 26, 2019, 06:42:00 PM »
So I finally got around to making this modification. Started with my Scalpel Squirt (https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,80683.msg1881145.html#msg1881145
) and tried to add what I figured was most lacking - a bit driver.
The bit driver itself is the same one used on waves, which requires a fair bit of grinding and a pivot spacer to get it to fit. The only thing is it doubles the width of piece and might take it from an easy "pocket/keychain" tool to the next size up. To even out the other side, I added my bike key and a file, it probably has room for one more key but between grinding nail nicks for them and my current motorcycle key from my Style being too long, I've just used washers to space it and have a small gap.
For the size of the bit driver, you could easily fit a 3d Phillips and flat head, however, with my leatherman tread I'm able to carry 4 additional bits fairly easily and without risk of forgetting them which I think pushes this over the edge as useful and fits well into the minimal style that I'm going for. That being said the size growth is noticeable.
Either way I figured I'd post this to see what you guys think and if you have any suggestions on how to minimize or better carry this tiny pocket anchor. Happy to do a write up on how to make the mod as well if anyone is interested.
