Title: What did you use your Leatherman for today?
Post by: trouthunter on May 13, 2012, 02:09:27 AM
So with so many Leathermans out there, there has to be some pretty exciting stories to go with them.   This thread is an attempt to document them.

So what did you use your Leatherman for today?  Did your fix the sink or save the world?

Amici,
Well so far today, I used my Squirt S4 to remove the plastic wrap from the top of a bottle of green Tea. Not exactly MacGuyver stuff huh?

Cheers,
Serge

I should win something for this.......I actually used my Blast to replace a toilet seat in an upstairs bathroom today :)  Well, you asked what I did with my Leatherman today, right? That's what I did. :)

I used my PS4 knife blade to cut my finger open while attempting to get into a clam shell package... Then I used the scissors to open a new package of bandaids my wife and I just happened to buy at Target today... What a day.

The circle of life.....



I used my charge TTi to disassemble my dishwasher so I could find out I have to spend more money to fix it.

Yesterday I got a nasty splinter of wood that broke off underneath the skin so I made a wider opening in enabling me to squeeze out the splinter. This is why I like the acute tips of LM knife blades as opposed to the more blunt Vic variety.

Today I again used the knife blade to harvesthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nettle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nettle) for a delicious (and extremely nourishing) nettle soup we had for dinner.

I also use the pliers to operate the burning hot hatch of our http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masonry_heater (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masonry_heater).

Which model? My, by far, most carried EDC for almost three years: The Skeletool CX.

Opened up an eBay package of a new MAC Tools brake spring tool.  With MAC Tools and Leatherman, you have an unbeatable combination.  Have thousands invested in both.

I used the scissors on my Surge to open 3 different clam packs that contained accessories for my camera.  These were not whimpy clam packs, either.  They were the ones that were intended to keep you out of, but the bad ass scissors on the Surge cut through them like a hot knife through butter.

My old Philips depilator broke today- a tiny piece of longish metal came out of it from a hole that had never existed before...  :think: ... I thought: oh, well, it's 7 years old, who cares, I'll go buy new one. Then I recalled... wait, I have my PS4 in my pocket, let's check what it can do! And guess what, it did a lot! My depilator's like brand new, apart from the freakin hole I'll think what to repair with, and the PS4 has just saved me about $30 for a new Philips! :D

Earlier this morning, I used my ST 300 to prune some branches from an apple tree that was starting to get a tad to hairy for me once the wind kicked up since it would brush against the window some nights.

Just got back from a camping trip with my Charge TTI, over the last 2 days it was used for:

-Gut hook - for gutting a fish
-Pliers - moving pots on an open fire
-Scissors - cutting 550 cord
-Knife blade - Whittling

I can see why Les Stroud (survivorman) would say that the Wave/Charge his favourite multi-tool.

Of course the two old timers had the OG ST's Both in great condition and the 25 year warranty put to use on both of them. I'll re neg my comment about the noodnicks at work for the two guys.

Well, not today, but Saturday...  The Wave helped me with all the flower thingies at the cemetery for Memorial Day.  Opening boxes, cutting ties, and bending those wires used to hold the arrangements on the tombstones.

Was thinking how much Dad would've LOVED one of these...  :multi:

And I forgot, last week the Wave did duty above and beyond, helping to install the new AC unit...   :tu:

Reinstalled the crappy shower head in the rental and packed away our awesome one.

It's was an imperial fitting on an ikea fitting so there was a brass collet that needed undoing and thanks to the new Rebar plier head on my Black Tide, it wrenched it off no sweat.

Reinstalling it on the shower head was no problem too.

It seems like every time I come in contact with a product packaged in clampack, the clampack is taken to the next level.  It use to be that you could take your average pocket knife and slice right through the clampack of yesteryear.  I promise you that if you tried to use your average pocket knife on the nuclear clampacks that my Charge Al and Charge Alx were in when they came in the mail to me today, you would have suffered some sort of mishap, whether it be to your person or your knife.
This was clearly a job for the Surge.  Now there are more than one Leatherman multitool out there that could do the job, but I chose the Surge, which made a quick meal of the two nuclear clampacks, releasing the prizes inside.

Used the skeletool to replace the air cleaner on the old yard master mower. The kick was used at work to replace a heating return grate and open several boxes of fasteners for the depleated fastener index. The can opener was used for the tape on the boxes to save the blade.

I used my Micra to snip open a butcher's packing paper of cod fillets. Those fillets are marinating now for the last 4 minutes (of 30) in lemon juice & salt, then, I'll coat them with olive oil and season with cayenne pepper and cumin.

I also tried (partially successful) to pick something from between my teeth with the hook tip on the nail file.

Damn, I wish Leatherman would figure out how to get toothpicks in their tools. Until that day, I can never really go without a SAK.

I changed a couple of old light switches in my mom's house yesterday. This first one was really old; had no snap action to it at all. Bakelite enclosure and actuator. Forgive the poor lighting: the power was off for this job, so the lighting was from a small LED task light, hanging from a peg nearby.

With the cover plate taken off, here's the guts. Note the fabric/rubber insulation, and the fact that Mom painted over the screws to make sure I lack no challenge. I used the medium flat screwdriver to chisel the paint out of the groove to remove it
(http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q112/jzorns/Knives/20130112_172329.jpg)


The wires were firmly wrapped around the screws. The needlenose on my Surge came to the rescue. Electricians generally don't use needlenose much. A lineman's pliers is their usual choice. I've done this with a scewdriver, but it is a frustrating process:
(http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q112/jzorns/Knives/20130112_172504.jpg)


Using the #2 phillips bit driver to fix the wires under the screws of the new switch:
(http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q112/jzorns/Knives/20130112_173620.jpg)


Phillips again, to attach/ground the switch frame to the junction box. See how the actuator is clear? I splurged for the switches with the neon bulbs inside; a nice feature in a dark room. ;)
(http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q112/jzorns/Knives/20130112_173930.jpg)


Flat head to attach this very pretty switch plate ;)

(http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q112/jzorns/Knives/20130112_174201.jpg)


I did another one too, but it was a much more recent switch and more of the same. Didn't have time to repair the dining table chair or replace the light socket on a lamp in the basement. Maybe those will be the next installment? :)

I'd be very careful working with a Leatherman around electricity, especially around old houses. :ahhh At my place (not even that old, 35 years) some of the lights aren't connected to the main switch, they are bypassed somehow. :shrug: So even when I turn the power off at the fuse box they still have power. Ask me how I know. :ahhh Always use insulated tools around electricity.

I don't get why Leatherman hasn't utilized this version of the file in anything else.  Which leads to another question of why the diamond file isn't a standard for files on every Leatherman (or Swisstools for that matter) that has a file.  Mainly talking about the Rebar as I don't see a point to having both sides of the file set up like that and no diamond side at all.

Also true with women as far as I know. As the saying goes, there are four important qualities when seeking a mate: First, you want a woman who likes to have lots of sex. Second, you want a woman who is a good mother and housekeeper. Third, you want a woman who has a great career and makes lots of money. And fourth, it is critically important that these three women never meet each other. :D

Bottom line: don't try to find the one perfect multitool; do combos instead. Spirit S + LM Micra, LM Charge ALX and SAK with scissors, etc... You get what you want, and the tools won't mind. (well, most of the times at least... there are rumours of grumpy tools that have bitten their owners when they lost exclusivity of pocket time... ::)) :D

Used the PST II's pliers to try to loosen a stubborn Brita water filter from a faucet here at work.  I say try because I had forgotten that the "righty tighty-lefty loosey" rule doesn't apply to plumbing.  Everyone who tried before me didn't realize that at all as my wife (she works here as well, but in a different building :)) thought to ask me since she knew I'd have pliers on me (haha, another instance to remind her of why I carry them :D).  Well, if they had thought to try the other direction, it would have come right off.  Of course I scratched the twist off part all up and tightened it even more before realizing plumbing works the opposite way.

A Charge with Surge scissors would be nearly the perfect multi-tool.  I guess if there were only one perfect multi-tool, Leatherman would only sell that one, and make less money.

Yes I agree.  I would like scissors on the outside, in place of the saw I would say as that's the one implement I really don't use on my Charges.  In most practical situations (that I know of) where I may possibly need a saw, I will have one on me.  That doesn't mean there aren't cases where the saw on the multitool would be handy and useful.  For my uses though, the saw is the expendable tool in that line up.  Also, replace the fixed large flathead with an awl and voila :o  The perfect-ish multitool :tu: 

Like you said though, if such a thing existed, then there wouldn't be much of a business, nor would it be much fun for us "addicts" ;)

I wouldn't part with the saw on my Charge. It came in handy on a trek in the forest, when I spied upon the perfect wood for a walking stick; a dry-cured black spruce sapling with the perfect curve for a handle.  If I hadn't had the Charge saw, I couldn't have cut through such a wood of legendary strength.  The Spruce Goose wasn't made out of mahogany, after all...

So would you part with the file instead, or the serrated blade?  Just curious.  It's interesting to hear different ideas and uses we all have :)  If I were hiking in the woods or anything of that nature, I would also be carrying my Colombian sawback machete.  In most other everyday situations, I don't need a saw on me, but I know that there could be a situation where a saw could unexpectedly come in handy.

Good question. If I chose my multitool based only on what I expect, I wouldn't be as well-prepared for the unexpected.  The need for a saw at that moment was unexpected, but much appreciated.  Today, I had a crusty baguette  for lunch, and the only thing I could cut it with was the serrated blade on my Charge.  I also hope to have it handy if I am ever trapped by my seatbelt in a drowning or burning wreck. 


I try to cover off all possibilities by carrying both the Juice and the Charge.  The scissors on the Juice are superior, it's handier to access, and the pliers are smaller for delicate work.  For bigger tasks, I prefer the locking blades of the Charge.


I suppose if I had to give something up on the Charge, it would be the file, as I have one on the Juice, which is smaller, but with a file, size doesn't matter as much.  And I can't think of an urgent need for a file; it's usually for a minor fix of some kind.

If I chose my multitool based only on what I expect, I wouldn't be as well-prepared for the unexpected.  The need for a saw at that moment was unexpected, but much appreciated.  Today, I had a crusty baguette  for lunch, and the only thing I could cut it with was the serrated blade on my Charge.  I also hope to have it handy if I am ever trapped by my seatbelt in a drowning or burning wreck. 


I try to cover off all possibilities by carrying both the Juice and the Charge.  The scissors on the Juice are superior, it's handier to access, and the pliers are smaller for delicate work.  For bigger tasks, I prefer the locking blades of the Charge.


I suppose if I had to give something up on the Charge, it would be the file, as I have one on the Juice, which is smaller, but with a file, size doesn't matter as much.  And I can't think of an urgent need for a file; it's usually for a minor fix of some kind.

I try to do that too, and sometimes it is hard to make a decision :think:  I typically carry a full size multitool and a SAK (or two :D) or the Juice S2.  I figure most unexpected situations will be covered that way, same as you.  It's easier to just pull out the SAK or Juice to handle most simple everyday tasks, but I like knowing I have stronger, locking tools available if necessary. 

Good point about the file though.  I can't think of any emergency type use for it.

Typical abusive day for the poor Surge. Cutting layout template out of cardboard with the knife wasn't bad, but the awl probably didn't like being used to scrape hardened epoxy out of hilti bolt threads, and I bent the heck out of the saw blade trying to cut a keyhole in the base of a temporary plywood wall in order to run a measuring tape through it.

I used my PST II's phillips and large flathead to assemble a baby bouncer seat and the crib.  The crib's bolts were allen's head, but the barrel nuts into which the bolts had to be housed required the flathead to keep them lined up correctly. 

While using the phillips on the bouncer seat though, it closed on me a couple times, and without a lot of force either.  The handles themselves even opened up some when this would happen.  That's the one big downside to non-locking tools and ,unfortunately, why the PST won't get lots of use for screwdriver jobs.  It is still good for other things though.  It's not a big deal though, as I really didn't plan on using it too much anyway as I don't want to cause any damage or wear on it. 

I still love it though :D

If you want to do screwdriver jobs with a PST you could get yourself a LM tool adapter,  they made one that works very well with a PST (the original version with two tangs, not the later "Universal tool adapter" with no tangs).  Then you can use any std 1/4" hex bits.

Thanks for the tip - I was using my surge today and because they were in a fairly tight spot it was difficult to get the plier cutting blades into the cable tie, I ended up using the PE blade to cut off the excess. Nail clippers would have been much better for this task.

So now I have a question, do any MTs come with decent nail clippers ?  Preferably plier based, but I will get a knife based tool if I have to.

I said this elsewhere, but better for cutting zip ties than a nail-clipper, if you have it, is a side-cutter.  Unfortunately, few multi tools that I've seen have a side cutter as an attachment.  It would be very handy for someone who cuts zip-ties frequently.

Today I used the PST II's knife blade to cut up a bunch of cardboard left over from the baby crib and bouncer seat I assembled yesterday.  It was very sharp and worked very well, even on the tip of my thumb :-[

I used the pliers on two Leatherman tools, a new Wave and a Blast too straighten the slightly bent corkscrew on a vintage Victorinox Rainier (partially serrated blade).

I used the Wave pliers to hold the base of the corkscrew and the Blast pliers to gently bend the top of the corkscrew slightly to one side so it cleared the liner better.

Is there a prize for using multi tools to fix other multi tools?

Well this story is actually from yesterday, but I didn't get the chance to get on here last night. 

While I was delivering some supplies to the main office here at work, the UPS guy drove in to pick up any packages and whatnot from the dropoff box.  As I was exiting the building, he asked me if I had a phillips screwdriver in the truck he'd seen me unloading from.  There are no tools in that company vehicle, so I happily replied, "No, but I have one on me."  He asked, "Oh, you have a Leatherman on you?"  To which I proudly replied, "Yes I do."

So I reached into my back pocket, pulled out my Rebar, got the phillips screwdriver out and handed it to him.  He needed to remove the lock from the dropoff box as it had been broken for some time and no other driver had bothered to fix it.  He mentioned that he normally has a Leatherman on him, but had forgotten it that day. :oops:  Let that be a lesson learned, do not forget your multitool(s) each morning :D

This wasn't today; it was over 10 years ago in fact, but here's what happened:
I had left a cast iron frypan on the stove for a bit too long, and when I came back is fully engulfed in flame.  The handle was too hot, I didn't have a potholder handy, so I whipped out my Leatherman, and used the pliers to carry the flaming pan to the sink. It also set the curtains on fire, so I ripped them down also. I was able to eventually douse the flames, and then I used the Leatherman again to put up new curtains. I only had a few minor burns on my hands to deal with.

Replaced a mobile cellphone booster today.

Very scary indeed.

Two uses today of my Charge TTi:

2. To crack open some Pistachio nuts. Not the easy ones, but the hard ones that have no natural openings, the ones you can never open with just your fingers.

I didn't really have an occasion to use my Wave today, but I did assemble my kids beds with it when we moved here a few weeks ago.  The bit kit and extension really did the trick for the baby's crib, it's put together with hex screws and the counterbore is a bit deep for the bedrails.  I couldn't have done it with the bitdriver alone, it's too short.  Money well spent on that extension and bit kit!

I used my wave and bit kit to remove the shroud for the ballscrew on my CNC lathe at work.  We are having an identical one refurbished and we needed to measure the radius of the balls in the ball nut.  I have my entire toolbox three feet from the machine as I run it every day, but none of my hex wrenches would do the job, the wave and extender were then only tools that reached while still allowing some torque.

It is a math project.  I'm not exactly sure what it's about, but I was told I had to help with the car, which is a given considering it had to be carved/shaped out of a block of wood.  I'm assuming there will be some kind of racing or something I guess.  I really have no idea, but it better be good because I've had to invest some considerable time on something when I don't even go to school ;)  It's ok though, it gave me an excuse to use a couple of my toys :D

Isn't that the truth?  She did do the measurements and marked things for me to use as guidelines.  That took her all of 10-15 mins at the most.  I've easily put an hour or two into it so far.  I think most or all of my work is done though.  She's got to bring home the wheels for it tomorrow, but after that, she has to take it to school to paint it.  Yeah, that's about the only way to make it Italian :D  I did the best I could, but I'm no woodworker, nor do I have any power tools or equipment to get it done easily/quickly like I'm sure many of the other dads do.  All I have are my trusty multitools ;) :tu:

I used this Leatherman to finally find out what all the fuss is about. I got in on sale yesterday, the guy was clearing them.

How is it?  I've been curious about the Flair, but can't say that I would ever use a multitool for food related functions.  Although that little fork is cool, but I could imagine the looks I would get if I pulled that out of my pocket, deployed that butter knife type tool and proceeded to stick it into a spread of some kind that others were also using.  I also have no use at all for a corkscrew, at least not for it's intended purpose anyway.  Still, it's a curious MT indeed...
Title: Re: What did you use your Leatherman for today?

Fit and finish are very good indeed. I get a feeling of primeval design. I can't say I don't like it but I'm not psyched either. It's funny though, you know, a picnic multitool with a spatula and all. As often said by others, I too hate tools clumping and having to deploy them from the inside. Overall I'd say it's OK but certainly not my first choice, especially not for food as you say. Curious is a good word to call it. Also, I think the pliers have limited use but haven't tested that yet. To be continued...  :)

I do like the classic Leatherman style, and I don't really mind the tools being inside the handles like that.  I just wouldn't feel comfortable actually using it in a public setting where there is shared spreads, etc.  The fork wouldn't be a problem as you'd only be making contact with the item you alone will be eating, but I wouldn't picture anyone being too keen on someone sticking their multitool utensil into something they too may use.  Not a sanitary act really.  Other than the food related utensils, it's basically like a PSTII, which I own.  It would be neat as a collector item I suppose, but it's not high on my list.  As I said before, it's just a curiousity as it's a rather unique combination of functions.

Hygiene can be a problem when multitools are involved. Some won't mind, some will. I'm for the latter unless forced to do otherwise. The "classic Leatherman style" as you call it is fully functional though a tad primeval IMO and I simply miss some safety locking on this one.

I'll keep that in mind, I was thinking the same. I'm not a collector really but I think it's good enough for a first Leatherman. Thank you for the tip. The PSTII seems basic enough to be good, same thing I like about the Pioneer. Oh and congrats for your second lass!  :)  :)

I'll keep that in mind, I was thinking the same. I'm not a collector really but I think it's good enough for a first Leatherman. Thank you for the tip. The PSTII seems basic enough to be good, same thing I like about the Pioneer. Oh and congrats for your second lass!  :)  :)

I would mind that as well.  You can't be too careful nowadays.  I agree about locking tools.  I really like the PSTII, but some of the tools fold in too easily for my liking.  I've heard that issue was improved upon with redesigned drivers on later versions of the PST and PSTII.  They are a nice, basic MT that can slide right into a pocket without being too heavy or bulky.  I do prefer locking tools, but I've found that the Juice models' tools stay in place rather well unless you really put some preasure/torque on them. 

I didn't start off as a collector, but this place has corrupted me >:D  I've only become a collector in that I have a few retired Leathermans I would like to own.  I can't afford to go crazy and have 100+ MTs/SAKs (not that I wouldn't mind if I had plenty of $$ for it ;)).  I've been able to aquire the PSTII and Juice Kf4 so far, with the PST and Original Wave remaining.  I do use them though, so I don't have any "shelf queens" as some would say.  Thanks for the congrats :salute:

I used this Leatherman to finally find out what all the fuss is about. I got in on sale yesterday, the guy was clearing them.

How is it?  I've been curious about the Flair, but can't say that I would ever use a multitool for food related functions.  Although that little fork is cool, but I could imagine the looks I would get if I pulled that out of my pocket, deployed that butter knife type tool and proceeded to stick it into a spread of some kind that others were also using.  I also have no use at all for a corkscrew, at least not for it's intended purpose anyway.  Still, it's a curious MT indeed...

I saw one at the swapmeet but i just couldn't pull the trigger on it, i just think it would sit there with some other MT that i don't use. It's cool and all but not that cool.

Oh you're in trouble all right ;) >:D  I do prefer the plain edge as well, but the diamond file with the sharpening groove is nice.  The only other difference is the PSTII has scissors in place of the awl.  At this point that isn't as major of a factor to me though.  The PSTII just edges out the PST for me as the better all around package, but lately I've been feeling the urge to get a PST as well, just to own both.  That's part of the addiction right there ;)  If I could get a PST with the PSTII's diamond file, that would probably be my ideal PST.

A bit adapter would be nice but I have all the MTs and SAKs I need. It's just that the PSTs have this primordial allure, a simplicity I can't ignore. They scream "it's the '80s" to me, a time I only got a glimpse of as a kid and yet I carry with me. :facepalm: I'm supposed to refrain from any compulsory impulsory buying (I don't do a lot of that really) and there I am indulging myself >:D  :ahhh

I don't consider myself a collector either, but then here I am wanting a few retired Leathermans (two of which I have-the Juice Kf4 and PSTII).  However, I use them, and would use the remaining ones on my wish list (PST and Original Wave).  You're right about the PST though, it has this simplistic style to it, yet it is still functional and useful.  I can't afford impulse buying, but that hasn't stopped me from doing so in the past >:D  Sometimes you have to jump at the chance to get certain MTs/SAKs, especially the harder to get ones.

Very unusuall but it saved me a lot of pain and discomfort. Dinner brake en route (im a driver) at KFC. My tooth chipped/broke (at the back of my mouth) leaving sharp and jagged edge that really hurted my tongue. Used a diamond file from my Surge to file down the problem a little. This will keep me sain through the weekend.

And my favourite whenever I get a chance. Cutting off bells from cats collars...

I just used the ruler on my KF4 to measure the width of a couple 3 ring binders here at work.  Nothing earth shattering I know, but it's not the first time I've had to do this, as well as other little measurements like this at work.  Just shows that the ruler can be handy at times, and I'm always glad when I need one and am able to pull out my MT.  Actually, all the MTs in my rotation have a ruler, with the exception of the Spirit.

Oh I see.  Maybe I need to rethink my stance on saws on SAKs.  I've never seen the point for me anyway, as I have saws on my MTs that I carry (other than the PSTII).  I've heard good things on here about SAK saws though, but I didn't want an extra layer taken up by something I didn't care to have on my SAK.

I just used both Leathermans (Blast and Juice KF4) I am carrying today in a rare case (for me) of needing both pliers.  I was using an air compressor to pump up the tires on a hand truck I use to cart supplies around.  The first went fine, but the other tire's air valve was recessed a bit and I couldn't get the cap off of it.  Out comes the KF4 to pull it out a bit so I could twist off the cap.  Well, the valve wouldn't stay out, so I had to get the Blast out to grab the tip of the valve and keep it in place while repositioning the KF4 to pull the valve out further.  Once I got it out far enough, I held it in place and proceeded to attach the compressor to it and inflated it.  Something like this almost justifies having two pliers on hand :D ;)

Built a cigar cutting station and put it on the wall at the cigar shop I hang out at. I used the S2 smallest flat head screwdriver to poke holes in the wall for anchors and hammered the anchors in with the MUT hammer. I still have yet to install a mirror that goes above it. No pics as the boss doesn't want it posted until it's complete.

Just used the bit driver feature on my Crunch for the first time. I've owned this tool for more than 9 years and had no idea it was even there. Thanks MT.O!¡! I replaced a headlight bulb in my Sorento. The whole headlight has to be pulled out to do this and there are 3 10mm screws to take out. Oh, and when I was undoing the retention spring, the spring went into my finger between the nail and finger OUCH!¡!

i replaced some watch batteries with my wingman over the weekend. it made the job so easy. so i saved myself a trip to the watch shop and just did it myself.

i used the needle nose pliers to screw open the screw back of one of my fossils. and just use the blade to pry ( :twak: ) another one of my watches open.

overall, it was enjoyable to do. =]

Used my Crunch to remove a tent peg from (I think) a tree root.  My friend noticed it was a bit hard to bang in, so she just kept hitting harder with her hammer.  :facepalm:  I strongly suggested not to do that in future as I (and my Crunch) might not be around and she'll end up leaving her portable gazebo behind if she can't get the peg out. The hammer wasn't any help at all removing it.  Lots of twisting (rotating) and pulling at the same time finally got it out, and I couldn't have done the job without locking pliers of some kind.  For a relatively compact tool the Crunch is quite robust.  :tu:

The rebar got a little workout. This particle board for shelves came wrapped up in that metal belting. No dykes or shears around so the rebar had to do. Clamped down and did some twisting.Not the best application for the Rebar,but they made due. Broke the belts with no lost limbs. I hate that metal binding on shipments.

Opening up and closing it the whole time, just to hear the sound  :facepalm:

Not a thing wrong with that;). It's one of my favorite uses.  Similar to the fun of opening/ closing a zippo.

Here is my Rebar after use as a small trowel today. It was, for real, the most effective trowel within at least a kilometre of where I was working. Nothing else was both the right kind of shape and small enough to fit in the space that needed digging out. It was not a pleasant experience, but at least my Rebar had a chance to get dirty!

Used my Leatherman Surge to fix the clutch cable on my motorcycle. It busted a hour before my License test. nobody in town had a part in stock. Lucky I found a cable clamp and stripped some of the casing off the cable to get some extra slack so I could clamp it to the handle.

I wish I had a picture, but we were run-off-feet busy at the time, and there is no stopping for pictures when things are that zippy.

I needed to shovel 6 inches of solid, stiff mud off of the footing so we could cover the footing with concrete, giving us a thickened section of concrete floor right under the future doorway. Unfortunately, all the forms were up and the rebar was in (and too long, derp derp), so we couldn't get a shovel in there. We were reduced to gouging and scraping with whatever we could find, since we couldn't get much more than our hands in the space.

Thanks John :salute:  It seems to be working now.  I initially used the small flathead to pry/gently bend the spring outward slightly, but that wasn't working beyond a couple closings of the scissor blades.  So I decided I had to be a little less gentle and use the pliers to torque it a bit outward, which worked too far and I had to bend it back inward a bit.  End result though, is that I got it in just the right place with no damage to anything and they seem to be working fine now ;).  I was worried I was going to have to send it back to Amazon and get a replacement, which would have been disappointing to have to wait a bit longer...that may be a story for your First World Problems thread huh?  It was you who started that one right?

I'm trying for a unique with this one.  ;)  Riding my bike backwards (ie sitting on the handlebars) round in circles on the beach to impress my 10 year old son I managed to clip into the Shimano SPD pedals but obviously backwards...

SPD's are not designed to be clipped in this way!  Had to undo one shoe - hop along the beach to retrieve my Crunch and then manage to lever open the pedal with the locking pliers and learn never to try that again...

Used the Charge AL to remove so light switch covers and vents in the living room so the wife can paint! :)

I also used the blade of my sak Explorer to cut away any painter's tape that stuck after the paint dried somewhat. :)

Got my new Wave and went to work around the house. Used the serrated edge to cut up cardboard boxes instead of my box cutter. The wire cutters to cut wire and a few briars. The pliars to remove a nut and bolt. The file to sharpen two pass thru limb loppers. Can opener to open a can of olives. And the bottle oppener to open a bottle of beer. It's a nice TOOL, but it just doesn't compare to the ergonomics, fit and finish of the Vic Workchamp that I gave my son. And the Vic doesn't compare to the Wave as a TOOL. I'll be EDC the Wave in my jeans pocket. Oh yea, and the saw to trim back a pine tree limb.

Day 2 new Wave: serrated blade to cut several rolls of insulation, large screwdriver to tighten up screws on my garage door, and the saw to trim branches and vines. Speaking just for myself, the LM Wave is s lazy mans tool. I can go for an evening walk around the house and fields with just it in my pocket and still get alot of little jobs done without having to go back to the shed for additional tools. And theres a whole lot more little jobs daily than big ones. Very nice EDC. Although I wish that it had larger scissors and a reamer like my SAK Farmer. BTW the lanyard it FANTASTIC! Working in the attic laying insulation I didn't have to wory about loosing the tool and the same in the fields where it could get hit by a mower and screw my machine up! Alot easier to keep track of one tool verses several. Not an SAK, and an SAK is not a LM.

I used my Juice Pro main blade to open cigar boxes both at the shop and at home. I was elated to see the mrs left her Flair on the bathroom vanity after she put up a shelf. That shows me that she used it when she installed a shelf next to my sink :D

with surge:  opened paint cans, trimmed a couple of brushes with the scissors, tightened bolts on my lil cart, cut the tops off some solo cups, cut about ten miles of string into manageable bits for grommets, straightened a bent key and picked up a cloth from the floor that had some substance on it that i didn't care to touch.  and it is still morning, lol.

So what did you use your Leatherman for today?  Did your fix the sink or save the world?

Used my Surge can opener to open 2 cans of chili beans. My Leatherman can openers are all I use in the kitchen anymore.
I also used my Blast to repair one of the mags from my Colt Govt 45. It's an older Blast and the file that it has is far superior to the files in the current Leathermans.

My work desk had a cheap Swiss army style knife sitting in a drawer. Ive been hesitant to use it because it has a horribly designed corkscrew that makes it very hard to use. The tip curls outward into your palm when gripping.

So I pulled my skeletool from my pocket and bent the cork screw inward with my pliers.

Probably would never use the POS in my drawer ever. But at least it wont hurt me or anyone else that might need it in the future.

  Two weeks ago Saturday had broken the left shoulder on a mountain single-track switchback. Since then been in indescribable pain with challenges thrown in ... like tying one's shoes.

  Found this clever video 'Hannah's One-Handed Shoe Tying Technique' which has helped immensely save the one long string.

Hannah's One-Handed Shoe Tying Technique (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLqdQ-f1RO0#)

  Initially was half-hitching it to the other shoe, but that wasn't working out. Cannot bend over obviously, so ... put the Crunch to use.

(http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/tools/Crunch/DSC03675_zps8cf58181.jpg)

  Now if could only put my pants on as easily...  :ahhh

  Think it is okay, landed in soft dirt - that's what stopped it. As for me, had built up too much speed in a short amount of time the body tackled the mountain. Them mountains are tough!
  At the time it looked like just a silly tumble, err more of a WHALLOP!

  Haven't checked the MTB thoroughly but looks okay - for once it fared better that her owner.


  Honestly been strongly considering a TerraTrike Rover (http://www.terratrike.com/rover.php), Nexus 8 IGH, recumbent trike. Don't have the resources to get one though. Tried a fundraiser ..... that was a fleetingly stupid idea.

Sorry to hear of your biking accident Xelkos.  Hope you are doing ok and healing well :tu:

I used my Rebar pliers to attempt to grab one of those big black and yellow spiders we get this time of year outside our place.  I successfully grabbed it, but pulled two legs off in the process (wish I could have gotten a pic), which prompted it to shake its web violently to and fro.  I thought it was initially from what I did, but it kept going on for too long at the same rate of speed to have been caused by my action.  It was weird, never seen that before.  After watching that for a bit, I then stomped it to mush in the dirt >:D  Not a big fan of spiders, and especially big ones like that.

Honestly it just sits still most of the time in a 10 gallon tank. It's more of a looking pet than a petting pet. It (she) hasn't bit me yet but she bit the man who sold her to me. Luckily the venom isn't dangerous and just feels like a bee sting.

That first pic looks like what I see out here.  Never noticed the web zig zags, but they do make large webs.  I suppose they would since the spiders themselves are large, at least compared to what I normally see around here.  My wife would mess her pants if she saw one of those inside.  She is really afraid of spiders, and so that means I'm the resident spider exterminator >:D  I'm not that afraid of them, but I don't like them either.
Well if they are what you have then I have seen them make really cool webs so keep your eye out. If your wife doesn't like spiders she shouldn't come to my house. It is 113 years old and the basement and barn are both unfinished with spiders that would freak me out, and I have and hold a rose haired tarantula.

Yeah, I'll keep that in mind as I crush them beneath my shoe >:D.  I'll check the web out first though ;)  So is a tarantula a friendly pet?

Honestly it just sits still most of the time in a 10 gallon tank. It's more of a looking pet than a petting pet. It (she) hasn't bit me yet but she bit the man who sold her to me. Luckily the venom isn't dangerous and just feels like a bee sting.

Yeah I figured, but I know some people like to take them out and handle them a lot, so I was curious.  I would prefer not to hold one though, because if it bit me, it may take a flying trip to the wall >:(  I'm really not this mean though, just not a fan of insects and other creepy crawlies ;)  A few rodents like mice and squirrels (yes squirrels) have met their end in my home by my hands (well bat ;)).
The only squirrel that ever entered my home met my kitties. >:D

Yeah, unfortunately my two kitties are too lazy to do much beyond pointing them out.  Sometimes they'll catch them and traumatize them, but I usually have to finish the job.  Most times though, they just arouse our suspicion that there may be one around, then we spot it and my wife goes and hides while I get to spend a considerable amount of time moving living room furniture around trying to find and kill it.  It ticks me off too, because I will move one thing and it will come zipping out and go under something else, and it's very difficult for a man with non-catlike reflexes to act as a cat and catch it ;)  One time, Fluffy (our big Maine Coon, who is quite lazy now) came stalking into the living room with the lower half of a mouse hanging out of his mouth.  Unfortunately, it was not dead of course, and he dropped it to play with it a bit more, but I had to finish it off.  Oh, and another funny story (sorry if I'm boring you >:D):  During one of the squirrel incidents, I had found it under our computer cabinet, and I was looking under it and poking with a sword (yes, a sword) and the thing ran right out and over my head.  Then later it died.  The end >:D

Used my TTi  and my AL to seperate two magnets that I bought at the flea market.

I could not do it without a better grip!  :facepalm:

the second time I had to do it, I discovered that I could do it with just the TTi, if I used the cap crimper

I've used my pulse for a ton of things this week.  I've used the pliers to adjust coolant stands and hoses, the knife to strip wire, the pliers again to pull metal chips out of my boots(an everyday occurrance), the screwdrivers to set up coolant ports in my machine, the diamond file to sharpen a drill bit, the other side of the file to deburr a part when I was too far from my toolbox, and my can opener saved my coworkers day last night when he had a can and no way to open it for lunch.

My poor little man Tenner toddled into my son's room this morning acting funny.  Hekept pawing at his mouth and looking extremely uncomfortable.  Looking in there, he had jammed a large hunk of wood between two teeth and it was really hurting him. 

This is what I pulled out with my Leatherman Charge.

Well my wife is afraid of them, so any she sees are sentenced to death and I get to carry it out.  I will say I can be more merciful as sometimes I see one and leave it be, but I'm usually busy and can't be bothered to take care of it.  They can be useful for removing other insects, but still not a big fan of them.

Yeah the lanyard its not what I thought it was. I tied a Digicam Bar that looks similar to what you did. What you made looks very neat and uniform. Theres a picture of the digicam bar in the got paracord thread. Its blue and yellow.

I just looked it up on YouTube at TIAT. Pretty cool!¡! That crown sinnet is very tight but there are some mistakes I made in the weaving like not paying attention to the cord being twisted in a spot or two. I don't like how I started this one and discovered a better way (I think) to start it with a two strand diamond knot. I've made several since this one that way and really like the way they've turned out.

That is a good one!  :D :tu: I seriously like spiders very much as longs as they stay out of my bed and cloths. When I was a child I used to keep a female cross spider in one corner of my room and caught flies for her every day. Funnily enough, I called her "Rudi" which is actually a male name. :D

Oh man, today was a banner day for multi tool use.  We have our two biggest CNC lathes down since our move due to various issues.  Not being CNC technicians, my fellow crew leads and I have been largely unsuccessful in making much progress, mainly because we keep trying to let our newer guys do simple things like put covers back on.  One of them crushed an entire wire harness doing this, and blew out a proximity sensor.  We got a technician in yesterday, and he managed to make things worse.  So I decided to hit the books and figure this crap out. 

My pulse saw so much use today it had to be cleaned, many times. 

On our newer lathe, the tool turret wasn't indexing.  My pulse pliers got used to undo terminals to check connections, cut wire, open packages for new parts, unscrew covers and caps to get at components in the turret, and pull chips out of the cable carrier system(had to tear that apart to get them all out). 

Ended up having to replace a single wire that ran from the turret position encoder to the controller.  One machine up and running.

The other one WAS working when Mr. Tech showed up, but he managed to give it the same symptoms as the newer one, which boggled my mind.  After about two hours of poring over manuals that were mainly written in portuguese and poorly translated english, a lightbulb came on in my head and I fixed that machine on my own, and he tried to take credit for it. 

So after all that, our best machine decided the chip conveyor was gonna jam, and my pulse got to pull all the chip stringers that had wrapped themselves around the motor shaft. 

It's been a long day and out of the two machines I was able to get one running normally and the other running sort of normally, with a few small tweaks needed tomorrow.

Well nothing too exciting this weekend. I used it mostly for cutting 8 gauge aluminum wire which I used for my gutter (leaf) guards. I used the HD aluminum clip on guards. I  overlapped them 1/4" and wired them together. Then I used another piece of wire at each end twisted thru the brace and the same thru every third section. The wire blends in perfectly and you pretty much have one solid huricanr proof unit. Some guys have even used one self tapping screw in between the clips of each section further anchoring iy to the gutter. :-)

Unfortunately I was in an motorcycle accident last night, when a woman decided to stop her car, in the right lane on the LIE, a main highway here in NY. I was about three car lengths away and couldn't avoid her so I had to lock it up and hold on and slid into her rear end. Anyway, after being banged up and getting some road rash I had to tighten the mirrors on the bike as well as the floor boards so I could ride it away. Just as I finished the police officer who took the report walked over to give me a copy and told me i had a piece of glass embedded in my left tricep, so I pulled it out with the pliers. Anyway used my Super Tool 300 to accomplish all this.

Yeah, I like the sleekness, and they just have an overall different, almost better feel to them, and smoother opening closing of the handles (at least on mine).  They almost seem more solid or durable in a way.

My legs are burning so bad, and they feel like jello! And of course I had to take another shower and clean the tub after I kicked him out! Here goes the water bill, at least the electric bill should be lower due to the cooler weather and turning the a/c off! JR

tried my teeth first but the pliers worked better  :D

Hmm, maybe Leatherman should make the "Redneck" tool. Has a set of false teeth instead of pliers, a bottle opener, a knife for cleaning your nails, some wire and a short length of duct tape. Should be able to fix anything with that.

Had to use my Rebar's large flathead as a prybar to break into our back door as the front door wasn't opening and couldn't be as easily manipulated to open as the back door.  One of the screws had come loose and was stuck in the latch's hole in the casing.

I always hate to hear when someone has to break into their own house. I hope you get everything secure before leaving the house again...

Yeah, it's a pain.  This is the second time I've had to do this, but the first time was because we'd locked the front door and forgot the key :facepalm:

There's no easy fix to this current issue though.  Of course, I'm not a handyman, so I could be wrong.  The screws holding the latch section together are loose as the wood section in which they are attached is rotted or just fallen apart.  It's an old place, so these things are happening, and the latch receiver in the casing is in the same predicament.  I may have to get creative in trying to fix it as this can and probably will keep happening.

I got no mail slot in my door at least.  I don't think I'd like the idea of an always opening slot like that, but considering the condition of my door, I guess it wouldn't matter ::)

Been browsimg through this forum for a while now so I decided to register and post :)

I never really used my Leatherman Wingman aside from being a paperweight and a beer bottle opener so I'm glad I got the opportunity to use it today.

First, to screw in a soap dish I got from a local department store. Second, to open up my Playstation 3 Slim and dissect its bluray drive.

Been unusable for a year but it turns out my son managed to get a puzzle piece lodged inside the drive which prevented it from reading discs.

Finally, it also helped me take off a drawer lock I had lost the keys to.

I'm been very productive today (considering it's a Sunday) and I'm no technician of any sort either. I'm really glad I took that Playstation apart. Saved me lots of money by doing it myself. Amazing what a Leatherman MT and Google can do (well, okay I also needed a smaller philips and a torx driver) ^-^

Not today, but this week... I closed a drawer after I had put an iPhone cable inside it, but the cable got stuck so the drawer would not open (it had no knob to pull). I used the pliers in my LM Style PS as a lever to increase the space between the drawer and the rest of that furniture piece, and then with a Minichamp I pushed the cable into the drawer. I was able to open the drawer and store the cable properly.

Today my Leatherman got a workout indoors.

Used the pliers to back out (5) 3" screws with stripped heads then used it to put together two steel
shop cabinets in conjunction with an electric drill. The pliers held up fine with no damage to the teeth.

Not sure what happened, I got it that way. It was part of a package deal I made with a guy. I got that knife, two MP600s with MOLLE sheaths, and a Leatherman Juice KF4 for $100.

I used the scissors in my Leatherman Style PS to open a bag of hazelnuts. And I should say it took two or three attempts to cut the plastic bag. I was not very impressed by its quality. Each day I am growing a firmer belief that the only reliable tool on that Style PS are the pliers and maybe the nail file with screwdriver.

The good thing is that I only bought it for the pliers, so... I will keep using SAK scissors.

Awesome site and great topic!

I use my multitool on a daily bases for a number of different task.

The attachments show just a few things I used my Wave for today.

1. Use to replace a thermocouple on a commercial gas range.

2. Used small screwdriver to remove and replace plug on cord.

3. Used large flat blade screwdriver to remove switch for testing.

Used the can opener this morning to dig out some old seals on a sink handle drain on a large commercial sink so I could replace them with new ones.

I have tried to count the number of times I use my MT in a day, but I always lose count before the day is over, lol...

New member, quick update  :)

Wave: On vacation after quite a few years EDC.  :drink:

Skeletool: Opening boxes at work, opening a drink at a Halloween party.

Supertool 300: Bending wire handles for my wife's cooking basket, carving a pumpkin with the saw and awl, removing air filter from my truck, opening a can of beans, removing the foil from an antifreeze bottle, scraping weld slag with the pliers.

Crunch: Removing battery cables on my truck, assembling some tooling fixtures, holding a tooling component while grinding, stripping some wires, fixing my wife's apple-coring machine (had to hold a small, bendable part with the Crunch, and hold the Crunch in a vise to do some precision dremel work) and of course, practicing one-hand deployment/retraction!  :facepalm:

Almost forgot the tool-on-tool tales:

Used Supertool 300 pliers to bend Crunch lower-jaw friction-fit pivot so the Crunch wouldn't "fall apart" as easily when released.

After the pumpkin carving party, my new Supertool 300 developed a loose pivot from all the pumpkin guts. Used Crunch pliers/pin vise to tighten Supertool pivot back to the sweet spot.

Opened some boxes and bags at work this morning with the Skeletool. The boxes were stapled underneath the tape  :facepalm: Skeletool pliers used to remove heavy staples.

Used the Supertool 300 today to clean a neglected weld gun nozzle, trim weld wire and chip/file a welded assembly.

Used the Crunch to hold together a few pieces of steel for welding. Got some weld berries on the Crunch. Used Supertool file to clean Crunch!

Although packing Skeletool, Crunch and Supertool 300, it was all about the ST300 today.

I spray painted a tool I made yesterday. When changing paint bottles, the dip tube fell in a full bottle and I used the ST300 pliers to get in the narrow mouth and rescue the dip tube. I also used it to peel a lid off a new bottle of air tool oil.

Got a call later in the day; machinist crashed CNC machine, broken tooling. I went to assess and used ST300 pliers to remove razor-sharp metal shavings after determining we would have to remove the tooling and bring it back to the shop. The tooling was old, and not doweled in place, so I used the ST300 awl to scribe the X/Y footprint before removal.

Back in the shop, I used ST300 awl to "pop" the quick disconnect fitting to bleed off residual hydraulic pressure and then used the pliers to disassemble some of the broken pieces.

It was all about real tools today at work; I was installing a tooling project I had finished earlier in the week, and my tool bag at work has all the fixings. I think I cut a zip-tie with ST300, just for fun, because my Wave never cut them cleanly.

I got home and used the Crunch to reinstall some siding that was damaged over the summer when a young exterminator clumsily peeled it off to deal with a wasp nest in our garage. He offered to reinstall, which I let him do. Big mistake. I guess he has never heard of a nail-set, and my siding has big hammer marks all over it where he put it back up.  :facepalm: The Crunch was great for pulling out bent nails, especially ones that had snapped off nail heads!  >:(

Also used the Wave pliers to quarter-up a fire starter for my woodstove. 

After witnessing the action of the exterminator, in true DIY nature, next time I'm buying the bee-suit and doing it myself! I was surprised to find them locally for less than $120, which is cheaper than any exterminator around.

Might be worth doing some research on the pesticides you intend to use before starting.  I believe some can be pretty toxic and need special handling during use and disposing of used dispensers etc.  ???
Title: Re: What did you use your Leatherman for today?
Post by: Craiger on October 26, 2013, 06:23:14 AM
That's part of the surprise.... No pesticide required for wasp removal. He just suited up, pried off the siding, removed the nest and put it in a trash bag. I was amazed that the wasps, while a bit agitated, were not really going after him all that much.

Once the queen is gone, workers continue to return to the nest for a few days, but eventually leave and die after they realize the queen and nest are gone. And, wasps tend not to re-inhabit a previous nest location, or the nest location of a former colony (they are territorial from what I understand).

I had to use my Charge TTi and bit kit and extender today, which is a rare occurrence.  I was disassembling a baby swing that we no longer need, but couldn't find the Allen key that came with it.  So I thought of my bit kit and checked a couple of the hex bits and found one that fit.  I attached the bit extender (didn't really need it, but figured why not?) and the hex bit and proceeded to complete the tasks.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to take any pics :dwts:

My Pulse saw a fair amount of use today.  I used the diamond file to polish a very tight tolerance set of parts to size after I machined them, they are .375" OD .314" ID ring spacers that are .050" wide with only + or - .0005" tolerance.  Yes, 5 ten-thousandths of an inch either way.

I used the pliers to remove a few burrs off these spacers, the part-off tool leaves a heck of a burr.

Carried the Wave and bit kit today. Used the 6mm bit to unscrew a pallet changer cover on a Mazak CNC to access a limit switch that was bugging out. Every screw was a challenge and I worried about the torque on the Wave bit holder.  :pok:

Got home and raked leaves. Used the Wave pliers to convert my blower to vacuum/mulch mode. Starting mulching leaves and a lady drove by, laughing. Looked back and realized I had forgot to close the mulch bag zipper; leaf dust blowing everywhere!  :rofl:

I've been using my Wingman for fiddling with the spring loaded pliers.  It's rather fun when one has been used to manual pliers for so long ;)  Oh, and I actually used the package opener last night to initiate the peeling off of the shells on some hard boiled eggs.  It actually worked fairly well at working a hole and then just cutting the shell a little ways to get me started-that thing seems to be rather sharp :tu:  And :twak: to me for not thinking of taking a pic until after the fact, but it would have been tricky anyway as I needed both hands for what I was doing.

A few days ago, I bought a Vixen Porta Mount for some of my telescopes. It used to have two Allen wrenches on board (under a rubber cover) for tuning the mount. One was lost and the other was a 4mm. I tried to understand what the lost one was, in order to replace it. On the screw head one reads TUZ 12.9. I tried all my Allens and nothing really fitted. It was something between 4.5mm and 5mm. Then my Surge took charge and I managed to do the job with the Torx 27 bit that had a perfect fit.
Obviously the (Japanese) mount isn't in metric and the Allen is the 3/16", while the "4mm" is simply 5/32". No chance to find a 3/16" here, so I'm happy I have the Surge. The only driver that handles Robertson heads also (standard in aluminium windows and doors in Greece).

So, I have to reinforce two shelves because they were intended to be cheap bookshelves. The ammo and knives I've got on them is a little heavier than they were designed for, so I picked up some 2x4 to reinforce them. Of course, it's too long to fit in the truck unless I leave the back window open and it's pouring out. So, out comes the sharpie and the tape measure to mark off a good size that won't lose me anything, then the Rebar.

Can it do it? Yes! Is it slow? You betcha. But it worked- the saw is devastating to pine, it's just a bit of a mouthful. Quick hit with canned air then wd-40 when I got home, and it's sitting on top of the heater to be sure it's dry. I'll oil it in a bit.

I had to use my Charge TTi and bit kit and extender today, which is a rare occurrence.  I was disassembling a baby swing that we no longer need, but couldn't find the Allen key that came with it.  So I thought of my bit kit and checked a couple of the hex bits and found one that fit.  I attached the bit extender (didn't really need it, but figured why not?) and the hex bit and proceeded to complete the tasks.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to take any pics :dwts:

Got in some Rebar awl action today.  I was reaming out a hole for a screw to be able to reach through that wood frame and into the wall.  It's part of our wood framed plastic window covering we have to put up every year as colder temps begin.  Gotta love old trailers in the winter :facepalm:  It's a pain in the rear, but thankfully, this should be the last time I have to do this :D

Took out my Skeletool and dug out the soil around the root with the blade, then ripped out the entire plant, and took it home to the wife, who planted it in a pot with a big smile on her face.

I used the flat driver on a PS4 to remove the air cleaner assembly on a log splitter.  After hitting the carburetor with starter fluid and getting it running for the first time in 10 years, I replaced replaced the assembly.  Quite manly, I must say.

Since I don't have any Torx tools I used my the needlenose pliers on my Sidekick to remove the pocket clip from my Crater C33T. I then used my Sidekick to re-install the screws to cover the holes.

Lots of use today! Cleaned out the pellet stove, disassembled my weatherby vanguard 30-06 to paint the synthetic stock, worked on building a paracord dog collar, tightened a few loose screws around the house, and i know i did a few other things with it as usual. Don't remember the last time I didn't use my wave on a daily basis.

tool- modded wave

I used my Minichamp to open the electronics unit in a soy milk maker. It didn't work. Turned out to be a disconnected cable.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/11/29/uhevapa6.jpg)

I used the pliers in a LM Style PS to pull the loose cable without having to disassemble the whole thing and put it back into in the right place. The pliers were a good tool because the tip of the cable needed to be a little squeezed in order to stay right there. And the Phillips screwdriver in any SAK is a real lifesaver. I have a small Phillips in the Minichamp and a bigger one in the Explorer, and both are great, covering a lot of different screws in a variety of contexts.

By the way, the small flat screwdriver in the LM Style PS would be able to help here, but I tend to prefer the Victorinox screwdrivers. I'm not sure but I think the metal seems to be more resistant in both my SAKs than in my Style PS.

Now it works, and we'll have a nice breakfast tomorrow :-)

I got some play time with the game tonight, and I gotta say, it was a good time so far :tu:  I had fun getting used to the gameplay.  Driving will take some getting used to as it seems somewhat easy to lose control and spin around a bunch, but that could also just be my inexperience with this type of game.  I'm sure it'll be better with time.  Overall so far, I would get it if you are interested.  I definitely find it to be fun, and I've only just begun. 

On topic:  I used the Wingman today to open several boxes and used the package opener to slice through the plastic seal over a flat containing tubs of coffee.  It worked great for that actually.

One more comment about the driving:  Despite what I said about the handling, it is rather fun.  I was doing donuts in the street, which was fun.  It is actually probably somewhat accurate with how vehicles handle and the speed.  You obviously would have difficulty controlling a car speeding through city streets with traffic everywhere.  More than one pedestrian was unintentionally mowed down due to this, but that's part of the fun >:D  I also stole a tour bus and that thing was ridiculously slow, but that would be accurate. 

Also (sorry for the thread derail by game review here), the police are very aggressive, or at least seem that way to me.  As I said, I haven't played one of these games in years, so this may be normal.  I seem to remember being able to hold them off fairly easily in Vice City, but here I'm having to run for my life immediately it seems.  Although this could also be due to the fact that I'm just starting off and haven't got a bunch of cool weapons and increases stats and all that. 

So I hope they port it to PC for you soon.  I'm looking forward to putting some more time into it tonight :D

today was more fun than i have ever had with a wave.


cut and slightly sculpted a chunk of foam for a santa claus suit

scooped out a faulty battery operated flicker candle from a pvc pipe base

trimmed about six miles of black sheets

cut small carpet squares for table legs, cut some rope, and a bunch of ribbon.

circumcised a cigar, so a small child could mime smoking it for a laugh on a stage.  cut tape to cover the tip so the child didn't come into any mouth contact with the tobacco, because children are our future and so forth.

whittled a cigar out of a fat bit of dowel, painted it with magic marker and a sharpie when the child broke the real cigar before the show.  i felt better, and she totally got her laugh.

Regular or hotdog ones? I used to live off of those when I was a kid especially the hotdog ones!(maybe that's why I'm not to big of a fan on hotdogs nowadays)

But as for the leatherman goes I had to use mine to work on my leather sheath the other day, and again yesterday to make a custom leather Xmas tree ornament for one of her friends, she designed, I just did what she said, worked great for pulling the paracord through along with a safety pin with a hooked tip!

I was using my MP600 to pull out a large bolt in my bed frame, the MP600 was flexing under the amount of torque I was putting on it so I switched to my Wave which held up a lot better. But my Wave did slip off the bolt and just gave me a nasty blood blister. Yay.

Lesson learned.  Never climb a ladder without a Multitool.

Used the ST300 pliers to remove a outside light bulb that blew up in my hand when I went to unscrew it to change it so I used the pliers to bend in the screwed in part til I could get a good grip on it and unscrew it from the socket.  Worked like a charm and now I have a new bulb in! :D

Well this is my first post here on this forum... First, I used my bare hands to open my first ever Leatherman - a new Wave. Then I immediately put it to work breaking through the space age packaging of my son's toys. Got to use the screwdriver to put some batteries in toys. We went to my mother's and she asked me to bust some lightered (I don't know how to spell it) and start a fire. So I used the file to touch up the edge of her hatchet. Then when the fire got too rowdy and spit a hot ember out on the rug my leatherman pliers were to the rescue to pick it up. The rug was fireproof, but that's not the point is it. Also, I discovered that the eyeglass screwdriver is perfect for loosening zip ties.

Used my Style PS scissors again yesterday evening, to remove some loos threads from the tablecloth. 

That nifty little style is a pleasure and handy thing to have with you when a big lm would not be so socially accepted ,like with the christmas dinner.

(Also here in the netherlands it is not so common to have a big kind of tool like a lm wave or surge with you on a daily base, alltough i mostly do carry my wave in my skinth with me, and really cant count anymore how many times i used a ziptie (or2) to save the day for someone.(zip ties can replace broken jeans buttons, shoe laces, keep a muffler under the car from dangling on the ground, and be used to pull up a light hanging to low to let the band play under it.(so dont carry only your lm, but also a 15cm ziptie or 2!)

I do think it depends a bit on where you are, or what you're doing... I think, hearing others here on the forum, it seems us Dutchies are pretty free, both for the laws, and what people think of you, when carrying a multitool. :)

I used my Wingman's pliers to squeeze/bend a piece of metal on a coworker's traction thingies on her shoes.  I have no idea what they were, but they're to help get extra traction on slippery ground.  Anyway, the end of one of the metal coil type things wrapped around part of the apparatus was bent out and catching on the carpet at work.  She asked if I had pliers and of course I did, so I fixed it for her :tu:

I was impressed by the saw.  I then used the phillips driver to remove some interior panels.

And probably uses less fuel too  :tu:

I just used the large flathead driver on my BORebar to pry/bend a section of a file cabinet that was catching on the drawer's lock and making it difficult to open.  I originally thought I'd need a hammer, but then thought I should try the Rebar first.  Just a few little twists to bend the section in and it worked like a charm.  Much quieter than a hammer too, which I'm sure the people in the surrounding cubicles appreciated :tu:

Use the knife blade on my ST300 to cut some sections of sarking, which were then install on my shed roof.

(for the non-Aussies here, a quote from Wikipedia):

Quote
In current usage in Australia, sarking refers to a laminated aluminium foil layer (commonly described as RFL, or reflective foil laminate) that is installed on the roof trusses, beneath the battens, supporting a tile or metal deck roof. It acts as additional radiative and convective insulation and provides a condensation barrier.

Then in the afternoon, I repaired my friend who helped me with the sarking by helping him with some plumbing. ST300 saw and file both came in handy for cutting pipe, and removing the burrs afterwards

Used my Wave (old) to open some packaging. And the OHO blades are SO MUCH EASIER and MORE CONVENIENT than the Rebar.
Not to mention that I like and trust the Wave's liner locks better than the back locks on the Rebar.

I'm not Rebar bashing, it's a great tool and I plan to give it motorbike carry duty. It's just not easy enough to access many times a day.

ST300 got a real workout yesterday as I was installing a sheet-metal roof on my shed. ST came in handy for:

-Pulling out the roofing screws that missed battens going in (oops- only one or two thankfully)
-bending up the valleys of the sheeting under the ridge capping
-various cutting, sawing and filing jobs

I've got to say, of all my multi-tools the ST300 sees the most actual use. I think its a combination of how tough it is combined with the relatively low replacement cost if something goes wrong

Tightened the left mirror on my motorcycle it likes to loosen every once in a while like my left bootlace...left things hate me.

It only loosens because the pressure of the wind rotates it anti-clockwise, the right mirror gets tighter.  You could always put a (non-permanent) thread locker onto the thread to stop it loosening  :)

Filed down the lense edge of my mag light after it rolled out my truck door and down a hill with my tti. It's not the first time I've filed the thing after falls.

Another good day for the ReCharge yesterday.

Blade: Open some snacks and break down some boxes.
Saw: Clean up some sub-floor edges to make them fit better.
Screwdrivers: Removed door hinges for dissasembly, cleaning and reassembly. Reattached said hinges. Tightening the screws holding on the legs of the coffee table.
Pliers: Helped me feed some nylon webbing through a highchair.

Not too shabby. Definitely glad to have it on me.

I'm not sure how it would fair doing this often, or if you used it in hardwood though.  I guess it should be ok as it should be harder than wood??  :think:  Good thing about it is, it's replaceable if it does get screwed up.

I used the Blast's metal file to file down the last pin holding the remnants of my SAK Climber together so I can pinch the scissors and install them in my SAK Tinker.

The file doesn't feel like much but it ripped through that pin quick smart.

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd490/RimfireNZ/Mobile%20Uploads/9BDA20E9-8D87-42BF-8B9B-107B5597BA20_zpswnidkizh.jpg)

Then had to lightly pry the layers off the pin using the small flathead

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd490/RimfireNZ/Mobile%20Uploads/B9F25142-1E7E-40F1-80E2-07255BA7B852_zpsqlh70nih.jpg)

And lastly to twist the pin a couple of times so it'd move

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd490/RimfireNZ/Mobile%20Uploads/75AF9BA5-B470-4631-802E-FDB8A7BDAC16_zpspykonyts.jpg)

You can see the years of crap that have collected on the layers on the inside of the SAK liners. Might hit them with the sander real quick.

After a week of carrying my Wave I've been missing my Blast :)

I just used the scissor blades of a beater Micra to grab a watch band pin to remove it. I didn't have a singe set of needlenose pliers fine enough for the task of grabbing the little spring loaded pin and pulling it back to take it out. The Micra scissor blades grabbed it firmly, and removed it easily without marring the pin in any significant way. Weird.

Also, the flat of the scissor blade was used to compress the pin to put it back in place with new watch band on it.

Micra for the win!

The Blast had to rescue my SAK Cybertool today. I was stripping some old broken hard drives to destroy the platters. The SAK didn't have the right bits for the job.

Who knows why they have a couple of double sided bits, then the rest are single sided. Anyway, out comes the Blast with the bit kit to save the day.

My bolt lock on my 7mm-08 started failing recently. I guess it's from a few years of me being a slack smurf and letting Hoppes No. 9 drip down into the safety/trigger and it's hardened :(

That bit kit I got for the Blast has made it infinitely more useful.

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd490/RimfireNZ/Mobile%20Uploads/66CE067B-E605-4A8D-B39A-82C62081102E_zpsgz8g34kr.jpg)

You can put some decent torque on the Wave like this, but the Blast doesn't like it so much. That saying it was fine, it just flexed.

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd490/RimfireNZ/Mobile%20Uploads/D976B911-E9EE-4F87-BA9D-D5CE8D00FDED_zpssf3tde9q.jpg)

I'll admit the Blast wasn't much help in taking the trigger mech out. I had to punch a couple of very stuck pins out and needed to get a full size set of pliers, grab with the wire cutter and whack the pliers with a small hammer  :'( I didn't bust up the pin too bad.

Now to figure out how to clean up this hardened solvent...

(http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/wrench_zps8089e6f7.gif)  Replaced telephone wire inside the trailer today, and relocated the inside jack. Employed the Charge TTi, Serac S2 (later the M5), Crunch, Piranha, and Squirt PS4.

  Used the cut hook to nick out some of the outer insulation on the wire, slipped in the guide, and stripped it down to the end. Worked rather slick. Use the saw to remove a small section of baseboard.
  Had to use the Serac S2 to remove the problem jack that got corroded from a kitchen sink leak. Hot water inlet line burst and shot water all over the floor, which in turn soaked up in the carpet, which in turn nailed the cardboard boxes. (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/pokecrap_zps4823a131.gif)  Messy to say the least, and smelly.

  Got 'er done though. Tried recycling the wall staples to hold the new wiring harness, that's where the Crunch was used. Most of the staples were less than cooperative and I finally threw in the white flag.  (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/yield_zpsa0e2f81a.gif)

  Went outside to finish the other end of the wiring when ran into a slight issue... the screwdriver ratchet  was too long for the space I had.  (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/hmm.gif)  Having no 1/4" ratchet was about to go get a wrench when I remembered the Piranha had a 1/4" hex driver. So... used the stubby adapter & socket to get that done.

Well my Sidekick-X got put to work within minutes of arriving at work, which is unusual for me.  The lady running our folding/inserting machine (folds statements, notices, etc. and inserts them into envelopes to be mailed to customers) jammed it up good on the two rollers at the end.  There were a few envelopes and notices wrapped solid around one of the rollers.

I used the little serrated blade to cut through the mess through the length of the roller, and used the pliers to very carefully and slowly pull the mess off the roller.  It took a few minutes, but I managed to get it all off the roller. 

Occurrences like this (however rare they may be) are one of the reasons I prefer to carry a plier based MT to go with my SAK.  I could have performed the cutting with my Rogue, but I couldn't have removed the mess with it.

Thanks buddy :salute:  Yeah, this was not a finger job as I couldn't reach or grasp the paper to start the pull.  I just had to pull with the pliers in a slow, but forceful way (if that makes sense).  The mail clerk lady was rather impressed that I was able to fix it for her as she didn't know what to do :)  This is a case where a service call was avoided, which is always a good thing :tu:

  Getting a digital camera ready for another photo project, the locking tab came off the SD memory card.  :ahhh

  Took a bit to find the thing, but when trying to put it back (under pressure) shot it off to parts unknown.  :ahhh

  Grabbed a spare MicroSD Adapter, removed the protection locking tab, and tried unsuccessfully to retro fit it onto the memory card that I needed to be working again. That's when I found a small strip of plastic had come loose, so even if I could had slipped the locking tab back into place it would of fell out anyhow.

Showing a locking tab (top layer removed)
(http://www.electronics-lab.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/2452663566_12438cf29f.jpg)

  This is how the tab is inserted. Removing, easy. Putting back, best left to thin fingers and younger eyes! (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/omg_zps58f75347.gif)

(http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/tools/Squirt/DSC04527_zpsdaa9a216.jpg)

  So... dug out the hot melt glue gun. Affixed two layers, and press formed that into place. Once cooled used the Squirt's knife blade to trim the excess, and cut away material in the channel groove. Charge's files were both used. Now the SD card is back and operational. (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/Xemoticon/boogie_zpsc6e2c751.gif)

  Think I will be better off if can find a 3rd Hand tool, preferably with a magnifier. A headlamp, as am tired of flashlight-in-mouth technique. And wished there was a Squirt-sized Crunch for times like this - especially at 5AM!

I used the flat driver on my TTi (that I had filed down to an awl of sorts) to dig/chip away at some ice to free a funnel tip outside by a group of buckets.  It worked great until I tried to pry the tip out when I thought it was loosened enough.  Well it wasn't quite loose enough, and I ended up snapping the whole thing off :o  First MT break for me, so the TTi will have to be heading to LM for repair.

Since it broke at the base he"ll only need send in the tool and keep the modified part. I don't feel the mod weakened the driver so he should be good to go.

Thanks guys, it was my first MT breakage :D  I was definitely prying with it when I shouldn't have been.  The pliers finished the job with no trouble, so I got the funnel out of the ice.  Now I get to mess with the LM warranty business, but at least they're very good from what I've read here.  I just plan on sending the TTi without the broken piece that I modded.  I don't think that part is necessary really as the mod should have had no effect on the break considering how I was using it ;)

Last time that I used my Leatherman BLAST was to cut through a crashed car's windshield. I was on my way to work with two other colleagues (I work as a professional fire fighting and rescue instructor) when we witnessed a car crash. One of the ivolved cars was on its doors and the driver was trapped, injured and unconscious. We called for bacup and I used the saw on the Blast to cut the winshield. Bu the time the FD arrived I had finished with the windshield and FD and the medics took over. Needless to say the saw on the blast was pretty badly damaged.
However Leatherman replaced it with a new one, with the relp of the local dealer "Krilia"

Used my shiny new rebar to fix my bbq today. One of the burners was making a weird noise and cutting out from time to time (a spider had set up shop on the inside) and one of the igniters was a bit too far away.

I've got 8 leather mans now and the Rebar is seriously gunning for the #1 spot. I still like the Blast overall more… but the Rebar has replaced it for my EDC. It's so thin!

Fixed my shoe. The plastic in the heel cracked and ripped through, so it was cutting into my heel with every step. Thank goodness for having my Sidekick because theres another 4 hours until I can get back home. Times like this pliers are almost the only tool for the job! :multi:

I used my Surge to hammer in some finish nails that began to peek out of some trim.  I used the metal file to take an edge off a skylight flashing.  I used the main blade to cut several lengths of twine for a client.  Today was a busy day for me and I'm reminded that having my LM on me at all times keeps me moving.

I gave the can opener a go on the Blast last night out of curiosity. I expected it to be useless… but it was actually about the same speed as a normal windy can opener and it cut through the can like butter. I'm sure you could get really quick with them.

House flipper had me out on a gig thats a year long ordeal.  I made several adjustments and attached some handles on about 22 windows.  The Wave got the call today and she did amazingly well.  I cut a bunch of visqueen to shield interior finish from other trades.  Tightened a few nuts and pried a few things all without fuss. 

I love the electrician on the job.  All switch plate screws were oriented the same throughout the entire home even the exterior ones.

A wire that goes to my fuel pump decided to melt against my exaust manifold and fry my fuel pump and kept blowing my ECM fuse. So replaced my fuel pump and it kept blowing the fuse. So three days of searching later I found the wire and used my charge many many times throughout the last several days. I used my fliers, wire cutters and bits so many times I lost count.

Finished up an install of a 2 meter amateur radio in my pickup.  My Wingman, Style CS and Skeletool all came in handy.  I mainly used the Wingman for it's wire stripper, the Skeletool as a knife and wire cutter, and the CS for zip tie cutting.

I could probably have done the whole job with the Wingman alone (and a 7mm socket wrench to disassemble the dashboard) if the Wingman's wire cutters were worth a toss. 

Or, I could have busted out my Wave, but it was in the house.

EDIT:  I also needed a drill, and Leatherman doesn't make those. Yet.

This use is an example of the more likely type of use I have for a wood saw on a MT/SAK:  I had to reach a small post it note I had dropped under my desk.  I couldn't reach it myself, well at least not without getting on all fours and going under my desk, so I figured it would be the perfect chance to use my Supertool of course ;)  I deployed the saw on my Supertool, and extended the handles to form a rather long reaching tool.  The saw "grabbed" the note and held it long enough for me to bring it within reach and grab it. 

Given the size of the Supertool, it was quite long with the handles extended, and the saw deployed.  This type of versatility is one of the reasons I like the classic style of the tools inside the handles.  Although the Swisstools and Spirits are capable of this as well.  The Wave/Charges however, are not capable of this function, or at least not with any of the longer tools.  They have the OHO blades though, so I guess it's a tradeoff no matter what.  If you carry a dedicated folder though (Crater c33 for me), then that remedies that issue with the Supertool. 

Sorry, I got rambling again :whistle:

Checking the damage, found the camera cracked half open, the case sides were apart about 3mm, buttons were impossible to press because the cover was bended outwards, and a little piece of plastic that kept the battery compartment closed was broken.
Pushed the case back together, it just popped in, so no problems there, and glued back the little piece of plastic, (found it with the fenix e05), and then used the file on my rebar to clean the dried excess glue, and make it flush with the rest.
All seems good so far. :tu:

I used my Wave and Wingman together to install some PL-259 connectors on some coax I bought.  Yay hamfest!  20 feet of low loss antenna feed line for the WIN.

I installed them as seen in this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPlcT9SXNPs) video. I found the Wave's pliers did a better job at gripping and twisting the plug because it had finer teeth and the handles feel smaller in hand.  The scissors on the Wingman cut the braid like a BOSS.

I used the diamond file on my OG Wave as a nail file.  Works pretty well.  That's why I pair my Explorer with this and the TTi as they have the diamond file while the Explorer lacks a nail file.

Was checking my back-up eyeglasses yesterday and found the monofiliament line holding one lens had broken. I was able to fix it today with some fishing line from the garage and an instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Eyeglass-repair-broken-monofilament-lens-retainer/).  The Leatherman PS4 scissors work well for trimming fishing line.  :)

I got to break in my SuperTool today while we were beginning work on our future house.  And by work, I mean a degree of demolition, which is more my specialty than anything else :D  However, what we did today wasn't the fun type.  We pulled up the carpet in a couple rooms, to expose the layer of padding material.  Well, this material was very attached to the hardwood floor underneath.  Anyway, there were staples around the border of the padding, and I used the smallest flathead to pry them up a bit to allow the pliers to grip them and rip them out.  My wife used the pliers to pull up a section of carpet, and used the large flathead as a scraper and pry tool as well.  I had told her before we left that it wouldn't hurt for her to carry one of my MTs, but she declined.  I think she may do so from now on ;)

I forgot to mention that I also used the Crater c33 for cutting some stubborn strands of the carpet that were clinging to corners against the wall as I pulled the carpet up.  This is probably the most I've used a MT in a single day (the SuperTool I mean).  I think it'll be a good companion during the various projects in the house :tu:

Used my Surge for all kinds of task. The biggest task used to day was cutting barbwire out from under the brushhog that had gotten tangled up in the blades. The hard wire cutter ate it for breakfast.

Yeah Nate, we were busy yesterday.  I'm feeling it today too.  I've let myself get out of shape the last few years, and being on my hands and knees off and on for a few hours, prying/pulling up staples and scraping stuff off the floor has made me feel some muscles in places I haven't felt worked in a while ;)

Post by: Monrogue on May 04, 2014, 05:36:50 AM
The SuperTool got a good workout (compared to normal for me) again today while continuing the floor work at our house.  Primarily staple, nail and carpet pulling.  The pliers are proving to be a big help for me so far, at least in this type of work.  I can see how a MT would be indispensable to anyone in the tradesman line of work :tu: 

Anyway, I started off using the smallest flathead to pry the staples up to allow the pliers to finish pulling them up.  Unfortunately this resulted in the first battle wound for this gem of a tool:  I broke the tip off of the driver.  I've since filed it to neaten it up, but here's a pic (not a good one though, sorry):

(http://i1326.photobucket.com/albums/u649/khtibbetts/MTs-SAKs/IMG_20140503_144054_625_zpsf28f8085.jpg) (http://s1326.photobucket.com/user/khtibbetts/media/MTs-SAKs/IMG_20140503_144054_625_zpsf28f8085.jpg.html)

Here are some pics of the other action for the SuperTool today:

I switched to the medium driver for the staple loosening task, which is probably the one I should have been using to begin with.

I should also add that my wife was happy to carry my BORebar today after needing my SuperTool a few times last time we worked at the house.  She said she used it, but I'm not sure on what as I was busy doing my own thing.  She likely used the pliers at the very least as she was doing similar work to mine, although minus the staple/nail pulling.

Used my rebar's plier head to take out two sim cards that were stuck. Just pulled them out by pressing on them with the tips of the pliers, and pulling back.
...beyond light duty for the rebar, but it worked.

Had nothing ready to go for lunch at work and overslept a little bit, so grabbed a can of Spaghettios on the way out the door in a rush. Pull it out for lunch, it's not a pop top (like the Campbell's soup cans I bring in on occasion) and not a can opener anywhere near me... NOT A PROBLEM!

We cancelled our tv cable subscription recently and then we discovered there was no antenna signal in the wall outlet. So I decided to make new antennas. I made two simple DTT antennas from a piece of coaxial cable.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/26/adugyhah.jpg)

I used a Vic Explorer to cut the plastic and to strip the copper wire, a LM Style PS to cut it and a Vic Minichamp to screw down a little Phillips screw that holds in place the wire in those coaxial terminals.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/26/8erytepu.jpg)

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/26/u7u3ymu7.jpg)

The Explorer came handy to cut some tape to fit the whole thing together and to place it in the window.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/05/26/syqa9y5u.jpg)

Now we have TV back, for free. Unfortunately, here in Portugal we only have 5 channels broadcasting in open signal through DTT... I really hope things get better in that respect.

almost.  it probably isn't what tofty envisioned for his project, but i feel he will appreciate the diversity.  i even broke out the t-shank spork for dessert.  i am lucky to have an understanding partner who is used to my weirdness, even at the table.  i made the set in the first place to go with the surge because of the bad habit fast food places have around here of shorting you your plastic flatware.  it was a pain using it with the surge, though, because there is nothing quick about the change-out, but this gizmo is amazing, and he even included the lil tool to use the screws.  tofty, i couldn't be more impressed, thank you for making this little thing.  i'm going to use the hell out of it.

and, i have actually broken stuff, using the leatherman on it to 'fix it better' because i was bored and wanted to use the leatherman.  sigh...

Well, the awl, the knife and the serrated knife (to cut fabric, sewn stuff and other stuffs) Awl to open up some tightly stuck plastic extremities.
I had to do some other reinforcement work but this I did not have my MT. Was at some one's place. Else, the cutter and saw would have come handy!

Great tool to have on the belt when you are up a ladder and release you forgot some vital tool for the job at hand- most of the time the ST300 saves a trip back down the ladder  :)

I had to saw up a block of wood into a long, slender shape to be made into an odd shaped car for my daughter's class project.  I had to do this last year as well, and it's not easy as I have no power equipment, like a table saw or something that would have made this a two minute job.  Instead it was like an hour of constant sawing motion and sweating.  The SuperTool performed excellently though.  I also used the file to smooth the edges after sawing.  Here's an in action pic my wife took:

I don't know about the POMs, but in Oz I've never heard of the term.  I'd call it a "slasher" or maybe a "rotary slasher" or more formally a "PTO mower".

I guess its a bit like Americans calling a photo-copier a Xerox because that is the brand name of a very popular maker of them.

I really want a belt clip for my KeySmart, like those on knives. I don't want a dangler. Can't find any, so I tried making one out of 2 mm brass rod I had.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-2_oZLKvIXDY/U5pc-73_n1I/AAAAAAABgcI/35i6nIrbHuY/s1000/IMG_6175.JPG)
First I bent it into a "safety pin"

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Yyra_cC0vpo/U5pc-yeeHHI/AAAAAAABgb8/ndAzUhoiYiQ/s1000/IMG_6176.JPG)
Final product. It's quite secure, but swings sideways sometimes and is quite hard to install. I used my Rebar and Style PS.

Rebar pliers are rock solid. No bending whatsoever. I thought the tips might break but they didn't.
Style PS pliers are... light duty. They can't bend the rod at all without twisting like a pair of scissors. I think they're too thin - they're only about half the thickness of the Style. Slightly useful for holding the rod, though.
Rebar hard wire cutters can cut through 2 mm brass!

The Supertool got some good work in today helping at our house.  I used the pliers for pulling nails out of some boards, which in some cases were larger nails that required some good torqueing.  The nails bent up considerably at times, but the Supertool did not show any signs of weakness.  My wife was using my BORebar for the same purpose, and she needed me to pull out the larger nails.  The Rebar was solid as well, and actually kind of felt slightly more so I think.  Oh, and the flathead drivers on both were used to remove some outlet covers as well.

The lady that fixed it, a high school automotive mechanics teacher, when she saw the Wave said "Oh, so you got one of them boyscout knives."  :D

I don't like correcting folks that help me fix things.

This is the first time I met this lady, so I told her about the problems with the pit bull next door, in case she had dog issues. She said if it attacker her, 'I'll just kill it," and picked up a piece of pipe. I doubted very much that if I'd flicked open the blade, she'd have batted an eye.

I kinda like her.  :D

I used the (flat) screwdriver on my Style PS to turn a smaller Philips screw than I thought possible:

I realized screwdrivers and screws aren't simply "fit" or "don't fit". It's just that the better the fit, the more torque you can apply.

The heat /cool knob in my bronco broke off a few weeks ago..... Left only a small metal spindle about 1/8" in diameter.   It was cool and rainy last time I drove it.   Today,  sport coat and tie,  I drove the twenty minutes or so to church with the outside temps pushing 90 and humid.   Used my rebar to grab the nub of the control and spin it to cool.   So I guess it saved my life.... Or at least a very sweaty collar.

For days now, I've been assembling various shelving and wall units for storage. Using all the screwdrivers and awl mostly. Last week I put in a few ceiling fans and made a couple of electrical outlets.

My first black oxide tool is starting to show the scratched signs of wear giving it a look I find very pleasing.  :D

Yes, the black oxide Rebar. Since losing my original PST, I've had a Wave and a Skeletool and now the Rebar. The Rebar is by far my favorite and I love the black oxide look.

Still have that extra we talked about, waiting to hear back on the e-mail I sent.

Well, let's see...scraped old caulk off of the shed roof with the Piranha [1 & 2; she was using P2], cut many cable ties with the "Replaceable Cutting Hook" on my MUT [SS]...used the same MUT to cut through chain link fence [no flippin' problem - great!] - uh, when my newly acquired Gerber MP600 FAILED at the same task.  Cut rotting bark off well overdue to-be-used firewood with the MUT...and when my cordless circular saw battery crapped out [at cutting old desk to become bath countertop], the Surge saw 'saw' that to the end [ :facepalm:]

Sorry; holiday weekend here...so - Gerber MP600 - it's the snub-nosed version with the TC replaceable wire cutters [yeah, at $20 a piece].  One 'survived'; the other shattered.  Btw, *nowhere* does it say that you can't use the Gerber wire cutters for [fill in the blank].  Aren't these geared for military?!

At ANY rate - used the replaceable wire cutters on the MUT.  Truly, they went through chain link fence with absolutely no problem.  I mean, that's awesome; that's why one purchases such tools, n'est-ce pas?  The 'hard' wire cutters, of course.

Gerber did send me a pair of TC cutters as replacements - no charge -- but made it clear I pay from here on out.  Do you see my eyebrows raised in unison??   :D  Yeah; cuz they are.  It won't be the last Gerber product I buy, but ABSOLUTELY the first & last multitool I buy from them.  I love the fact that EVERYONE who posted on their website listed the total FAIL of their TC wire cutters.  I'd say theyz got a problemo...

I really love my LM's - I'm also totally schizophrenic between the MUT's I've got and the Surge.  I take the Juice XE6 on dogwalks [and have used it on said dogwalks], but I love the two aforementioned LM's.  I feel naked without them!   :ahhh

Wire cutters are extremely important to me on a multitool. That's one reason the Wingman has become much lower on my list of used tools.

It's well known that the Gerber tungsten cutters will shatter when given too much to chew. I do use the TC ones but have several replacements on hand just in case. I use my Wave wire cutters for most cutting but for anything heavy-duty I use the Rebar.
