great idea for a club -- I wanna play too! :D

my ReCharge was the first mod I ever did (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,39153.0.html), and it's gone through plenty of changes (including cerakoting!) since the original plier head swap. :)
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7365/11396709205_794af7160a_b.jpg)

this "skinny Charge" has been a terrific office EDC (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,49483.msg827517.html#msg827517) for me the past few months. :tu:
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3691/11899699833_9b832ec6d6_b.jpg)

my modded Wave also got the cerakote treatment (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,48986.0.html)... I love this color, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7378/11424063365_280329e5ec_b.jpg)

this Wave was a restoration project (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,44715.0.html), but turned into a mod of sorts. ;)
(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8269/8698172636_8f2997545f_b.jpg)

I've got some smaller mods as well (Style CS/PS platform), but apparently I still need to take some pics of those. :think: And I've got a couple more that are either planned or currently in progress... :D

Nothing terribly fancy for me.

A Rebar with a (downgrade) headswap. If you ever want to know what happens with those folks that swap a Rebar head into their Wave (or whatever)... this was the result. A 'cast off' tool I couldn't say no to for the price.

And, my own creation, a simple handle swap, so I could have a green Style PS.

I tried out that mod with an old scissor at first - It is missing the spring and is gumemd up and needs sharpening, but it is drilled to the LM´s pivot size and ground so it will lock. If you want to polish it up, I´ll send it over to you. PM me your address.

And thanks, guys. It was fun to mod it.

New member here. Looks like I will be able to join this club soon.  My wife was going to get me a new leatherman for my birthday since I’ve been carrying my Charge ALX for years. I went online to look at the new models, and nothing looked much better for what I need then the Charge that I already have.

As luck would have it I stumbled upon these forums and saw my first Re-Charge.   I was hooked!  The wire cutter on my Charge was all but useless.  The only time I tried to use it, it didn’t cut very well and left a notch in the blade when it was done. The wife ordered me a Rebar last night for my project. I opted for BO, because I think the look of the black head with the black scales will look great.

So next week I’ll be taking the plunge into modding my Charge.  First I’ll replace the head, but later I might try replacing the small screwdriver.  I wanted that option back before I had Lasic. But now I never use the small driver.  Do you guys know if the awl from the rebar will fit in its place, or is the awl too thick? 

Thanks guys!

Nice to have you with us.
The awl should fit in fine but for the handles to close you'll probably need to reprofile the awl a little.
More about it here (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,51690.msg876771.html#msg876771). Looking forward to seeing what you do.

I received my sacrificial BO Rebar today. I had hoped that the black oxide would have matched the black anodized scales better, but it still looks good IMO. It matches better in person, the BO sure doesn't photograph well. It might just be my phone.

(http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b259/twiggy-bob/AC20BEC0-0026-4726-BA9A-B59689B947C6_zpsf8jlbpv9.jpg)

Next I'm going to try swapping the awl from the Rebar with the micro driver on my ALX. I know I'll have to shave a little off the awl so it doesn't hit the rebar head. It also looks like it might be a hair thicker than the micro driver. I'll measure it with calipers before I start the swap.

Swiss Army knives .

there's a little bit of grinding required. at a minimum, the pivot hole needs to be enlarged to fit the Wave/Charge pivot. when I modded my skinny Charge, I also had to make some slight adjustments to the locking face to get the liner lock to properly engage, but no such modification was needed on Kampfer's Mini-Surge.

I can't remember what thread it was mentioned in, but we were talking about what tool Leatherman uses to assemble/disassemble the knurled pivot screws. I sent Leatherman a email asking for any and all info they could give me on this as well as if they made the tool to do this in house or had them made for them. This is what I was sent back.

I guess my PST qualifies me for this club...

Was a basket case when I got it, scratched and filthy and a snapped off blade.

(http://i1309.photobucket.com/albums/s640/Peter_Thorpe/20130703_081358_zps554414f2.jpg)

It's now a PST 1.5 with a serrated blade and all cleaned up and polished.

I don't know which country you're in but get hold of Breezy12 (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=profile;u=6412). I know he does some custom LMs for people. I'm sure there are other guys here but I'm not sure who does them for other people off the top of my head.

I just did the exact same mod you're talking about.

So far, all I have done on the Leatherman side is take my TTi apart, have the scales anodized, and put back together.

but soon I will be doing a head swap with a rebar.

Traded the cap crimpers for much better wire cutters. The original wire cutters got messed up when I cut a treble hook off of a fishing lure.

I realize that anodizing the scales on my Charge TTi is not REALLY a hack, I decided I needed to go all in on this.

so, here is my first Leatherman hack,

it is just a head swap, but I am glad I did it.

Anyone else think it would be cool if they made a SPECIAL set of replaceable 154CM cutters that were wire strippers?

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Charge%20TTi/DSC00803.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Charge%20TTi/DSC00803.jpg.html)

I stayed factory with the inside tools, because I think they are great as is.  I have an awl that I put into the bit adapter when needed, which made my decision very easy.

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Charge%20TTi/DSC00805.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Charge%20TTi/DSC00805.jpg.html)

I pulled out the "blade holder thingy" so the scissors are not modded at all and the tool closes completely

Interesting. So you managed to fit all the tools in the handles still by removing the OH blade lock from the inside of the handles? That's been mentioned a couple of times now. I guess I should give that a go on my Wave instead of grinding tools.

be careful,  if you cannot manage to re-peen the rivet tight enough, your tools on that side will not lock.  I had a hard time of it, because the shape makes it hard to hold the rivet head in tight while peening.  took me an hour to get my lock working again,  but I finally got it

Ok, might just stick to grinding the awl. Way more room for error there.

Pretty basic little mod for me today. Rebar with scissors.

Drops straight in with no mods. Has no trouble closing.

Post by: AimlessWanderer on August 05, 2014, 05:01:13 PM
I might have got one or two cunningly adjusted Leathermans ...  :whistle: ... Well, five actually  >:D



The first one is still going strong. The Leatherman Ripple, or Wave Lite. Basically a Wave with no interior tools, this was built to serve me in my last job, where drivers and small scissors weren't a whole lot of use. If I want to carry a "complete" one, I have my Charge AL which does everything a Wave does, but looks better doing it  :D

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030328_zps84b4fcd6.jpg)

Maybe THIS was the first one handed Leatherman  :P



Secondly I have my PST III which is proving quite useful. Fuse drivers, scissors and can opener, with SOG scissors and a serrated blade.

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030329_zps46547f52.jpg)



Then there's the holy knifeless trinity of modified Kick, Fuse and Blast :nanadance:


The Roundhouse Kick gains the innards from the Ripple, making it quite a good urban carry tool

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030330_zps4b9ef526.jpg)

The smaller griver got hastily hand ground for use as an awl, and the flat driver is there for light prying, leaving all the driving chores for the two bit drivers



The Blasted Thing is driver heavy, and has a full 1/4" hex driver for awkward fastenings, or for where driver damage may occur (I can use "sacrificial" bits without damaging the tool), and also a pair of scissors

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030332_zps0df99f48.jpg)

I'm not altogether happy with this one. Could do with a little tweaking to be honest



The Fuse-ilier is the main focal point of my own version of the Bear Grills Survival Pack.

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030334_zps00bb2b05.jpg)

Accompanying it are various other goodies for fire, light and signalling, as well as the Case Scout Jr completing the toolset with a knife, can opener and bottle opener which are absent in the Fuse-ilier. The other tools are an exotac firestarter, metal Clipper lighter, Fox Micro whistle, Nitecore T0 torch and a bit adatpter for the Phillips driver.

Had one recently that was too small for the Core so I gave it back.

Never thought to try it with the spare Charge.

Here is a great idea...

I think there's also a lot of promise in fitting the removable clip from a Wave into the space that's between the file and the small screwdriver of the Rebar, after replacing the lanyard with an appropriate diameter spacer (or grinding a smidge off the diameter of the Lanyard attachment, and keeping it in/on the Rebar).

...worth looking at.  BO sounds nice.  :popcorn:

just a handle swap

My coworker asked me to do the swap, because he wanted the orange and BO tools,  and as payment, I get the BO, with Silver tools!   seemed fair to me.

so here are the factory tools

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01823resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01823resized.jpg.html)

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01824resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01824resized.jpg.html)

hard to see, but notice the different angles on the large flat drivers (I took a better angled photo,  but you could not see the silver one)

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01825resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01825resized.jpg.html)



so I like using the engineer pliers, but I also like NOT scratching the body of the tools so I decided to try something new, and it worked fairly decently.

I used these

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01826resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01826resized.jpg.html)

and put them on the end of the pliers like so

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01827resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01827resized.jpg.html)

they wore out before I was finished, I just replaced them and it was all good.

here is the tear down results

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01829resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01829resized.jpg.html)

so, I also wanted to switch the lock releases so that the Orange Tool had black insides and locks.

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01830resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01830resized.jpg.html)

ALL DONE!!!!!

orange handles, with black tools, black pliers, black locks, and black knurled knobs.

(http://i833.photobucket.com/albums/zz255/detronphillips/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01831resized.jpg) (http://s833.photobucket.com/user/detronphillips/media/multitools/Fuse%20Switch/DSC01831resized.jpg.html)

This is my final and definitive "knifeless" Rebar.

Has gained LM small scissors from Fuse and my combo 'F' wrench in lieu of the blades, whose function is provided by a legal folder.   Of the original LM tools the cap-lifter required a 0.4mm thickness reduction.  The saw is SOG with the original saw on permanent loan to Fuse.

Not my urban EDC but definitely my go-to MT.

thanks man, glad you like it! and welcome to the forum! :cheers:

for this particular mod, you won't need a security torx bit, as both the Charge AL and Rebar are held together with the knurled screws, and the Wingman can be disassembled with just a standard torx bit.

oh, and you'll need a Dremel (or similar tool) to enlarge the pivot hole of the Wingman scissors in order for them to fit on the Charge.

no problem -- always happy to help! :cheers:

the ST300 plier head will not fit in a Charge. use a Rebar if you want to do the plier head swap.

are you mainly after the outside accessible scissors, or do you really want the Skinny Charge? if the outside scissors (with the rest of the tool loadout intact) is what you're after, check out the Mini Surge (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,51718.0.html) that I did for Kampfer. (that mod could just as easily be done with a Charge instead of a Wave.)

if you want more info about the Skinny Charge, let me know... I've gotten enough questions about it that it's probably worth posting a build thread for it at this point. :)

Hey there breezy12, a question if I could, I'm in the middle of figuring out some hacks on my wave, I'm wanting to add the rigid Phillips screwdriver like in your pic, did you bend down the flap, stop, nub thing that the pliers hit when closed? Or any pointers I can snag from ya?

Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.

I think you need to remove the piece sheet metal that locks blade when handles are open, in order for the tool close completely

Hardest part was talking the Rebar apart. A bit fiddly getting the tools back in but holding the handle of the multi in my vice helped to steady things. Could do with a second security torx bit, though the wingman screws work OK.

The Irwin pliers are lovely - I've got a pair of side cutters with the same handles too - got a good deal on a set from my local tool shop.

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5588/15283414761_01f67ba3f2_z.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/phxuK4)
Swapped the large flat driver for one from a Wingman as it's slightly thinner and fitted better, shuffled the tools around, replaced one of the pivots with one from a Kick so I can use a pocket clip and screwed it all back together.

Need to make the locking groove on the Wingman flat driver deeper so it locks better and grind some of the tab by the nail nick off to get it flush with the other tools.  I also need to swap the position of the can opener and large flat driver as at the moment the can opener pokes through the slots in the handle when you close it up.

Wanted to add the Wingman pocket clip - needed to use the Wingman pivots for the hex for the clip to fit over.  But they're different sizes - the Wingman plier pivots are smaller than the Rebar.  So I made a brass bush from some 0.4mm sheet to line the Rebar pliers hole:
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3853/15286582586_2b2b9a79b8_z.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/phPJqJ)
The holes in the handles are too big so there's a bit of play in the handles - I'm going to make some new pivots from 1/4" brass hex bar when I get a chance.  Means I can put metric fasteners in instead of the imperial ones in there at the momenet.

Had to cut a hole in the handle for the tip of the anti-rotation lug to fit into, but it's lovely and secure now.

Ground a bit more off the Wingman flat driver too, so it clears the lock tab spring better.

wow, really nicely done, hiraethus! :o

just yesterday I was eyeballing the Wingman pocket clip to see if I could get it to fit on a Rebar, but I gave up much sooner than you did, apparently. :D I really like the way that clip sits on there. :tu:

Thanks. I wasn't sure how far I was going to have to go to make this work, but having realised I'd dismantled 4 perfectly functioning multi tools for parts I thought 'smurf it, let's see where this takes me'.  :D

That is looking real nice.  :tu:  Do you have a pic of the hole you cut?

I'll take one tomorrow for you. I had to mod the clip too so I'll try to get a shot of that as well.

Cheers. Does it sit good in the pocket?

Wanted to add the Wingman pocket clip - needed to use the Wingman pivots for the hex for the clip to fit over.  But they're different sizes - the Wingman plier pivots are smaller than the Rebar.  So I made a brass bush from some 0.4mm sheet to line the Rebar pliers hole:

The holes in the handles are too big so there's a bit of play in the handles - I'm going to make some new pivots from 1/4" brass hex bar when I get a chance.  Means I can put metric fasteners in instead of the imperial ones in there at the momenet.

This means I'll have to drill out the Wingman pliers to get them into the Rebar handles.  :(

I used a couple of spacers from the Wingman as the pivot is longer than it needed to be.  I'll make the new one shorter to suit.

The hole is a bit ragged as I kept slipping with the tiny diamond burrs on my dremel on the angled face I was cutting into - needs more work with the diamond files.

This means I'll have to drill out the Wingman pliers to get them into the Rebar handles.  :(

Or, if you've access to a lathe, turn some stepped collars to locate the smaller diameter pivots in the large holes in the handles.

Hi guys, I love going thru this thread. Lots of ideas. I have a rebar that I bought for the pliers and a new charge tti that I wanted to put them in. After doing the swap I ended up changing them back the way they were. The pliers weren't perfect and the blades wouldn't unlock. I think I'd rather get a charge bit holder for the rebar but I'm not willing to sacrifice the one of my charge lol. Where can I get one cheap (if there is a way)?

sounds like you encountered the overextended pin issue that some of us have run into. ;) are you saying that when the tool was closed, the blades wouldn't open properly? the pin on the safety lock sometimes overextends with the Rebar pliers in there, but you can either grind down the pins to allow clearance or just remove the pin mechanism altogether.

Post by: pdrift86 on September 22, 2014, 10:55:57 PM
Yes, that's exactly what happened. I didn't want to grind it though since I just got it back from warranty.. It's brand new and I didn't want to mess anything up. lol.

Hacking for a friend at work. Old Gerber that he always wanted a pocket clip, so i scavenged a clip off a junk drawer knife. Just used the hole already on the clip, chopped and filed excess and slapped her back together. Not amazing or Purdy, but I don't see too many clips on Gerber MT?. I know this is our LM hacking place, but I'm not familiar with the Gerber forum, or where to find their hacks., so I figured you all might appreciate this.  :D

Today my BO Wave serrated blade from Texas Toolcrafter came - and after a few minutes of fiddling how it will fit the OHT, it hacked me.  :D

Where is a Surge(on) when you need one?  :think:

Usually i don´t cut myself very often, not that much that it needs more care than sticking the finger in the mouth for a few minutes - but this time it had to got a immediate bath with superglue. The cut goes from the most left "red" end to the right, an in a 45° angle to the inside.

It reminds me why i don´t cut myself more often - it hurts and the spilled blood needs to be cleaned.  :ahhh

After that i wanted to make the needed bushing from some round brass on my lathe (the Waves holes are a little bit bigger), but i found no 4,7mm drill - and no shop in our small town had anything than the most used sizes in 0,5mm steps - 4,0 then 4,5 then 5,0 (thats what i have at home myself).  :oops:

Not sure if that´s maybe a sign to don´t mod the OHT?  :facepalm:

Uh oh that looks painful... :-\

Not sure if that´s maybe a sign to don´t mod the OHT?  :facepalm:

Out of interest what are you wanting to replace/upgrade on the OHT? Just a note that if you're looking at adding a non-OHT tool to your OHT, the OHT outward tools come with a slightly non-standard LM tool design (base area around the pivot is different) and they're in general slightly thinner to fit under thin profiled scales. So you'd need quite a bit of re-shaping done, IMO. But I could be wrong as I don't know what your end goal is.

Cheers.

Nothing special, just replacing the short OHTs serrated blade and saw with the larger ones from a Wave. Making some brass bushings to bring the 5,6mm holes of the Waves tools to fit the 4,7mm pin of the OHT, reshaping the base, maybe new shims if the thickness is to much off.

And after they fit, then trying to get their tips shaped in a way that the can-opener and the small screwdriver do not have to go. Or delete them if needed.

Drill the 4.5mm and file the rest out by hand. I did the Wingman scissors with a chainsaw file.  :whistle:

I thought to do that - and already had the rat-tail needlefile in my hand ......  ;)

It took me years to collect that machinery, and the one or another "No" when i wanted other stuff, to collect the money. No drinking and no smoking helped, too. And doing most of the restoration myself.

There are always bargains out there for good old drillpress/mills/lathes/grinders - often not good looking, but the old stuff is usually sturdy. Keep an eye on craigslist, garage sales, .....

A sturdy drillpress is the most versatile, with a vise it could even be used as a lathe, sort of.

My smallest boring bar has a 8mm shank + the protruding 0702 DCGT carbide bit - could be hard to fit that into a 4,5mm hole.  ;)

(I know there is very small tooling like "Horn" steels that could do it, but i have no such tiny tools.)

Sort your stuff out mate.   :twak:   Improvise.  :pok:

I tried improvising  :D - but the 4,5mm hole was exactly 4,5mm - the runout was to good (what is usually a good thing).   :whistle:  Probably i could even use a 5mm drill and wouldn´t notice it later when using  :think: - but i would always know that, and that´s not the way of german engineering.  :rofl:

Tried to come around the expend for a set of drills with 0,1mm steps, as a good set is easily around 100€  ::)  and usually the 0,5mm steps are OK for most of my work. But i´m afraid i need to buy them.

4.8mm cobalt drills are readily available.  What us Europeans call 3/16" I think.

Give this one a miss though...

Ah, thanks.

No clearance, there is only one layer in each scale. So the tools in each scale are "in one line".

My way to keep the small flat is to close the longer blade on the "ground" of the slot. Then fold the screwdriver over it.

I reshaped the blade, so the screwdriver closes now enough to not have any protruding edges over the scales.

Half way, blade is done - next step will be the saw. After all is finished i think about to have them done with new black oxide.

Not sure if it´s worth to disassemble it again to make a step by step fotostory, as it´s a pretty easy and straight mod. Just a bushing for the to big hole, a little bit reshaping the pivot area, and finally reshapen the bladetip. And a additional little indention on the other side of the blade for it´s locking device when closed.

No, i don´t think it would fit. I just got my caliper and measured them, the thickness of the OHTs saw is 2,34 mm (pivot area), and the Surge blade exchanger has 3,6 mm (also measured the Gerber/Remgrit, it´s 4,68 mm). No fit, unless you make a complete new pivot post, and even then i´m afraid it will not work as smooth as now and the scales would be twisted from one end to the other.

Additional - it´s hard to get a BO Wave saw, i only can assume how much harder it might be to find a BO Surge blade exchanger.

If i would have a spare one, i definately would try to make it fit.  :D A few days ago i was working on the electrics in my new workshop, installing the lines for the 3phase 400V system. I did that "on wall" using plastic tubes, and when i had to cut them to length i noticed i had lost my small metal-hacksaw somewhere between stuff. Instead of starting a long search i used the Surge on my belt - and the woodsaw blade worked for the thinwalled plastic tube, but not that great. Swapped it out with the metal blade from the sheath, and it worked like a charme. The exchanger is the best saw solution i know.

Just grabbed my Blast to have a look - no i don´t think the saw will fit inside the Surge.

The following is just by the look, i havn´t disassembled and measured them to check it.

- The Blasts pivot area looks smaller, so probably the saw wouldn´t lock (or at least not good).
- Without disassembling no statement to the dia of the pivot posts.
- And the final dealbreaker ... it seems the plierhead of the Surge needs all the free space inside the folded handles, so i assume the long saw would take that space and the tool will not fold (completely) anymore.

I've been working on a variation of the Mini Surge for a guy who saw the youtube review and contacted me about a custom mod. (thanks Kampfer!)

he wanted the fixed drivers installed instead of the bit drivers, but didn't want the blade lockout springs/pins removed. as a result, there was quite a bit of grinding/reprofiling involved, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. (sorry for the crappy, flash-heavy pics.)

Rebar Phillips driver, and I actually had to grind the can opener a bit to get a good fit with the Rebar plier head... never encountered this before. I'm not sure if it has something to do with the newer Wave handles. :think:
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3937/15537240072_73b84d492c_h.jpg)

Rebar awl and flat drivers on this side. I actually ended up using the small flat driver from a Kick instead of the one from the Rebar. it fit in there very nicely after a little reprofiling. :tu:

Questions. Did you change the pliers at all? Did you remove the plier rests? Does the Wave have the little bumps inside the handle to stop the lock release tabs from being pushed in too far? If yes, were they an issue?

I think it needs the gutting hook. Still, its a wee beastie.  :tu:

I just need to know it wouldn't be wasted. Check the bay, PM metro and breezy etc. If no love, its yours.  :)

You, Sir, are way to generous.  :salute:

I could never accept it, and ending with having one in each of my two main tools - and leaving you without the main advantage in your Surge.

But many thanks for putting this bee in my ear  :D - i will look out for one to give this mod a try.

:tu: great job!  :tu:

thanks Kampfer! and thanks again for sending in your Mini Surge for the youtube review. :cheers:

I've been working on a variation of the Mini Surge for a guy who saw the youtube review and contacted me about a custom mod. (thanks Kampfer!)

Questions. Did you change the pliers at all? Did you remove the plier rests? Does the Wave have the little bumps inside the handle to stop the lock release tabs from being pushed in too far? If yes, were they an issue?

I think it needs the gutting hook. Still, its a wee beastie.  :tu:

thanks zoidberg. :cheers:

Nope, no modification to the pliers at all. Grinding/reprofiling was done on the Phillips driver, small flat driver, and awl (and a tiny bit on the can opener) to allow complete closure of the handles.

Yes, the plier rests were removed -- there is NO way you're getting that Phillips driver in there without removing at least one of them. ;)

Yes, the new Wave handles still have those small bumps to stop the lock release tabs, but they didn't present any issues. I put the awl in the scissors spot, and the profile of the awl allows clearance of that bump. Ditto for the curvature of the underside of the Phillips driver. :tu:

I completely agree with you about the hook! :cheers: but those things are a pain in the ass to track down without disassembling a Charge. I check the TTC ebay page regularly (and grab them when they're available), but they haven't had any in stock for awhile. :( I even sent them an email, but they said they don't have any available at the moment.

Arrrrrrg!?!  ok cool thanks for looking into it guys. I don't like to carry a sheath, so all this got me thinking of the, hopefully near, future of being a surge owner

I edc the Surge, but with a sheath on my belt. A Surge loose in the pockets .... you must be a braver man than i.  :D

Errr just less experienced with the surge. But hopefully not for long. The clip does look dwarfed on it huh?? Well I may have walk a little stiff legged

I had to put a notch into the Phillips to clear the bump. The Large Screwdriver and Awl were also held up by it.

interesting. I wonder if this is because you're removing the springs/pins on your mods, which allows the drivers/awl to close further? :think:

I do take some metal off the underside of the Phillips as well when I grind it down to fit, so that could be part of it as well. I've never had a problem with the large flat driver, since that comes stock on a Wave. are you putting it in a different spot?

Yeah the issue is only when in the scissors place.
The handles would close but the nail nick/hook would sit proud.
I wanted this one all flush though.

Another interesting one was I had to very slightly reprofile the scissors handle to clear the Rebar pliers.
But when detron did the same hack he said it fitted in without any problems.
Both were done with original TTi handles.

Was thinking of starting on the skinny hack but I'm not sure it would get much use. Feeling so unmotivated.

The bosch t-shanks I use are about half the thickness of the leatherman ones.

I use a heatshrink sleeve with both versions of the Surge to get rid of the wiggle.

Post by: Lichtbote on October 15, 2014, 01:44:47 AM
Bosch, Hitachi, ... - i´m using several brands. The nice thing with the Surge exchanger is the spring on its side which balances the different thicknesses a little bit. The whole construction is so nice and thoughtfull, i doubt i could came with something as good and noticeable thinner.

I've always had to reprofile the scissors since I like to leave the springs/pins in place. ;) but there have been some slight changes to the Wave/Charge scissors over the last few years; could just be that you and detron were working with 2 different versions.

I have some hacks that I want to try for myself, I just need to find the time... and the motivation, like you said. :-\ I've got multiple disassembled tools that are just waiting to be hacked and put back together...

Thanks guys!  :D

@ babola, I'm pretty happy with it without an awl, I still like to have the scissors. I think I might sharpen the can opener to use as an awl/ package opener as mentioned in another thread. That seems to be a good idea.

@ kampfer, I'm pretty sure The plier head/ handles will rub off some of the black finish over time as it opens and shuts, the plier head I swapped out had some rub marks, but it's not like deep scratches or anything sinister, just very soft rub marks, it doesn't really bother me as its a user, just adds character!

Not that hard but requires a small hack job. LM Kick pocket clip is a perfect candidate for this althought not sure if hiraetus had used the same or different clip.

I'm with you on that one! ;) I wear glasses, so it's definitely nice to have the precision screwdriver bit just in case, but honestly, it gets far more use on the battery compartments of my kids' toys than anything else. :facepalm:

I certainly don't need the screwdriver for my glasses that often, but the small bit driver has saved my ability to see a handful of times over the years. (I had a pair or prescription sunglasses for awhile that kept falling apart.) the weight of the Charge didn't bother me while using it. for me, it's one of those tools that I don't need all that often, but when I do need it, there's no substitute for it.

don't get me wrong -- I can see how some people have no use for the small bit driver and it ends up being wasted space, or how it has no place on some tools. (for example, I don't think it would make any sense to put a small bit driver on an ST300.)

but then again, if everyone wanted/needed the same tool set, then the Mod Squad forum wouldn't be much fun. :D

Yup I removed the lanyard ring and added a pocket clip. And repurposed the free space on both sides of the tool.

....err why 2? :think:

The Rebar is a frame with so much potential.  I notice you have gone "edge outside" on the steak knives (and the craft knife) presumably avoid the handles obstructing which IMO is the real downside of inside tools.  Experienced any sharp issues deploying or closing up?

Hey man , I like your ideas, good imagination :) it's also good to see someone else that is brave enough to carry a surge and super tool in your pocket. I hate using sheaths. On your surge, is the ruler part of the scales blue? Or just the reflection of the hack saw blade?
Also how do you deploy the razor blades or backward knives without slicing up finger tips?

I've been meaning to try this for awhile now... I have a donor Surge all ready to go, I just haven't gotten around to actually doing the mod though.

Awl: It will be easier to use the awl from a Rebar -- the pivot area is the same, whereas you'd have to grind off a significant amount of metal from the Surge awl. zoidberg has some nice pics (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,51510.msg963790.html#msg963790) showing the difference. :)

Blade exchanger: Metro has done the blade exchanger mod (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,41159.0.html) on both a Charge and a Wave. I plan on using a Wave to start with, because I don't know if my Dremel is up to the task of grinding the titanium scales. :-\

Scissors: I don't know if anyone has attempted to fit the Surge scissors into a Wave/Charge, but I plan on attempting that as well if I ever get around to working on this mod. :salute:

I really don't have any excuse, I've just been busy. :shrug: the donor Surge was disassembled and cleaned months ago.... :facepalm:

Post by: kkokkolis on October 31, 2014, 09:43:24 PM
I was just checking and found that the scissors and blade exchanger plus blade are too long to fit. The scissors are also too wide. I was interested in a simple exchange. I'll have to continue using my Swisschamp's scissors and awl. But good luck to you and don't forget to update.

The scissor out of a 91mm SAK will fit in a Wave or charge. You will have to do some grinding.

It's been done by one of the members of another forum, if memory serves me right it was over at British Blades.

The mod while functional, left a lot to be desired. The Surge scissors were just too long for Wave/Charge, so the modder had to saw off quite of bit of the  tips leaving the unsightly and stumpy looking implement. The problem with Surge scissors isn't so much the length of its blades but the long handles. As a result a scissor pivot is too far down and blade tips need to be almost cut in half to fit the Wave/Charge cavity.

If I was doing this mod I would rather focus on the handle bottom stop and remove the little nub to add few more mm in total cavity length.

Move the pivot back to make up for the tip cut, use the old pivot as a paracord cutting notch?

that's pretty much what I had in mind... I think I'd also have to shorten the pivot if I remove/grind down the bottom handle piece on the Wave. :think:

zoidberg, I agree with you about the Wingman scissors. they work well enough in my skinny ReCharge because I use them for a very specific purpose (cutting open small plastic packages in the lab at work), but for general purpose use, they're certainly not the best scissors. :(

I picked up a couple used 91mm Vics on ebay awhile back, I think I'll try those scissors next.

Added Victorinox scissors and the package opener from a Wingman. Removed the can opener to get more space for the scissors but would like to put it back in - think I'll have to shave the plastic liners down to get it to fit.

Thanks! Not the pliers, but I did sand down the plastic liner next to the scissors and ground about 0.5mm of the thickness of the Phillips driver to give the scissors more space. I had to add a thicker washer between the pliers and the liner to take up the gap - I should have left a thicker portion at the pliers end.

Looking at the pic, the scissors definitely came from a Wingman, but it looks like the small flat driver is the Kick/Fuse/Blast variety, and the awl looks like a ground-down large flat driver.

The Wingman scissors are not quite a straight drop-in; the pivot hole needs to be enlarged to fit the Wave pivots.

Check ebay/craigs list/local newspapers for sale pages - look out for an old, bad looking and cheap bench grinder - as big as possible (bigger means more power). If it looks like crap they usually go cheap. All it has to do is still running (maybe have an electrician check the old cables for todays standards) - then you can disassemble it´s pretection covers and the grinding wheels. Then check the size of it´s axle, and go to ebay (or search the net for shops) to look for the right sized polishingwheel adapters.

With some time for a good offer you should have a polishing machine at the end, for under the price of a Surge.  :tu:

(For the good feeling i usually disassemble my machines, put new bearings in, some new paint. But that is rarely really needed for proper function.)

They're ok on threads and paper but on paracord, fingernails and cable ties they just push whatever you're cutting out the front of the scissors.  I'll try sharpening the blades and see if that makes a difference.

They're ok on threads and paper but on paracord, fingernails and cable ties they just push whatever you're cutting out the front of the scissors.  I'll try sharpening the blades and see if that makes a difference.

Ah, gotcha.  :tu:

I agree, try sharpening them first before you discount them as an option. I am of very few who prefer Wingman scissors instead of Vic ones in the Wave  :multi:

I been doing a lot of thinking about this whole scissors situation. Have had my stock Wave on my side for a couple of weeks now and I am trying my best to find uses for the scissors but to no avail.

It is not that a knife would work fine but I can not even find stuff that scissors would be good for. Maybe cutting errant strings off my uniform. That is about it.

Look forward to December and not having scissors again to see if I miss them. Thinking I will not though.

On the plus side of this it will save me some money modding tools to have scissors and make carrying my Old Cross Pioneer easier.

I wouldn´t have any use for the tiny Wave scissors, too. In fact i next to never used to have scissors with me, and i never missed them.

But i admit ... since the Surge is on my side, i found myself using it´s scissoers from time to time. Not nearly to a daily basis, but when i need them they are big and good enough to do the job (mostly cutting bandaids  :D, but also other things like those very small electrical cables, paper, ....).

Yeah Lich. Very infrequent use is what I am thinking, if at all. No way I will need them so much they should be on the outside of my tool.

As for the small size I have a SAK Evowood 18 on the way so we will see if maybe size matters.  :whistle:

I really only use my scissors to trim the straws on my kids drinks at a restaurant if the straws are too long. Other than that..... this thread got me thinking, what do I really need them for?
I think I'm gonna save room on my full size lm to utilize it for something else, and just carry a micra type tool on my keys

Regarding the outside - as long as my main need on the Surge (serrated blade, plain blade, sawblade) are covered oho, i don´t care for whats in the fourth slot. But putting the scissors in is not that bad, as it enables big and usefull scissors - small scissors are wasted space for me, no matter if inside or outside.

I had to tickle a tiny bit off one corner of the saw too, so it locked easily when I moved it to the serrated blade slot. The small flat driver is modified too, to clear the lock pivot.

Not (yet) a Wave owner but I have a plan for a "Knifeless Wave".  Couple of questions.  Firstly taking account of length only could a 3D Phillips be made to fit in lieu of the bit holder?

Secondly the saw locking edge would have had the opposite bevel, presumably why it needed a bit of a grind.  Once ground did it lock as securely as in the correct bay?

Saw - each of them alone not that often, but counted together (wood AND metal) i do.

File - one time, to test it when i bought the Surge.

A good file is often used by me - but they are full sized in my workbench, or the special type for my filing machine.  ;)

yes, the 3D Phillips from a Rebar/Blast/Fuse/Kick/etc. can be installed in place of the bit driver, but you'll need to either remove the blade safety lock pins or grind down the driver. take a look through the earlier pages of this thread and you'll see some examples (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,51510.msg964025.html#msg964025). :D

Looking again at the saw, there's a bit less than 1mm of play at the tip now, about the same as on the file (which hasn't been modified in any way).  It still locks securely.

Sweet looking Surge. I don't think the blade out a Charge or wave will fit the Surge. I am like you, I with the Surge SE blade had the gut/strap cutter on it. I have been thinking about modding the blade. Another idea that has crossed my mind is the Damascus blades that TxT Cafters makes. Those would sweet in a BO Surge.

My "nearly knifeless" Wave and Fuse.

Fuse has regained its scissors, previously donated to Rebar, from Wave.  Wave failed to get its Wingman scissors due to a smeg-up enlarging the hole :facepalm: but TBH I prefer the saw and file in their own slots.   Though the opener is the first tool I sacrifice for space (after the Wave precision driver :D) I like an outside opener.

2D bits will fit in the unused space in the knife bays.  A holiday project maybe :think:

Thanks for the tip, I am about to start working on the Mini-Surge mod for my Wave, so perfect timing. I have diamond drill bits but will most likely use Breezy's method with a carbide Dremel bit and go easy and careful on it. S/S steel shouldn't snap like that, I would expect a reasonable amount of flex before the snapping point.   :think:

unfortunately, Leatherman does not sell individual parts, and the Rebar plier heads are very popular around here. ;) I have plenty of Rebar bodies from all the mods I've done.

if you're trying to save money, your best bet is to try to find a used Rebar on ebay or something and use that.

The Flik is one of these tools that folks either seem to love or hate.  Definitely worth using the forum search function to see what other people think.  My initial thoughts on the Flik can be read here (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,43983.0.html) (it is worth reading the whole thread).  Since writing that piece I've had a chance to look at a good few other Fliks and none of them seem to have had the poorly made Phillips mine suffered from, so it would seem to definitely be the exception rather than the norm. :)

I think I'll try a FLIK before an OHT. Seems over priced to me :think:

The Flik is one of these tools that folks either seem to love or hate.  Definitely worth using the forum search function to see what other people think.  My initial thoughts on the Flik can be read here (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,43983.0.html) (it is worth reading the whole thread).  Since writing that piece I've had a chance to look at a good few other Fliks and none of them seem to have had the poorly made Phillips mine suffered from, so it would seem to definitely be the exception rather than the norm. :)

Nice to hear that some of the problems (Such as your Phillips and my pliers issue) we have encountered with the Flik have been isolated events and haven't affected all tools ....

.... unlike the huge framed, stubby tooled (but very well made) contraption with limited toolset from their neighbour in Portland, which was NOT the first OHO multitool as misleadingly portrayed by them

 :whistle: :D :D

For those of you without much time let me summarize.

They both suck get a Rebar.  :pok:

... and this is yet another tool which polarises opinion ....

CONCLUSION: Everyone has a different opinion of what makes for a good or bad tool. We can advise based on our own experiences and opinions, but unfortunately you'll only know for sure when you get one (of whichever tool) and try it for yourself ... which is one of the reasons that some of us own so many of them  :D

DO try and handle both a Flik and OHT before making purchase if at all possible after reading the various reviews here, you may find that one/both/none has the potential of being a very good tool for you  :cheers:

Oh ... and yes, do continue to check out the Diesel too  :cheers: It's not an outboard tool like the other two (I personally prefer outboard for ease of access and for orientation of blades), but I have found it to be a large tool which handles as well as a smaller tool, and has good capability too

Right, those tools (both LM & Gerber) made lots compromises (bulky overall size, short implements, and often both) for the flicky pliers design. So IF flicky pliers is a feature you want, then those compromises will be the price you have to pay.

Agreed!  :tu: Specifically on flicky and outboard (Flik, OHT and Freehand).

Flickies with inboard tools (Diesel, MP400, MP600, Octane) do suffer this to a lesser extent IMHO ... shorter long tools, but longer short tools (if that makes sense) in relation to body size compared with Flik/Freehand due to available working space. The only ones I can think of that doesn't suffer short tools are the Balance and Grappler, but you can't really consider either a Flicky, more of a Slidey, and whilst the tools are longer they are few in number and potentially limited in durability on the Grappler too (see here) (http://www.multitool.org/reviews/gerber/large-tools/261-gerber-grappler.html)

The OHT could have had longer tools, but LM chose the abundance of drivers and the strap cutter over lengthening the knives/saw. Whether that is a pro or con depends on the individual user

Not given them a proper test yet, but they're better than they were straight from the factory but not as good as a Micra or Victorinox.  They don't inspire confidence though - as they're thinner and more flexible than Victorinox scissors and the thumb pad's not as comfortable.

Hey Everyone - this is the first club I am joining. This mod thing is addictive.

RaveX - planning to add the serrated gut hook. Also, I doubled up on brass washers around both blades - I found operation much smoother.

Throwback Rebar - I really like the standard pliers on the old school frame. Also, subbed in small driver from the kick.

Kick+ - Added scissors and dropped second flathead.  I really like this tool, and I think it would stack up well against a Juice S2 (not a big fan of Juice line).

Single Wing Wingman - I went with the option of "clicking" drivers and omitted the world's smallest ruler.

The Surge and ST300 are next in my sights.

I have the bit kit for the smaller flat head driver, but yours will be better on that tool in terms of reach on recessed screws. I still have the one from the Blast I robbed (currently in another mod), but that's getting diverted into my Rebar, as the stock Rebar one is a bit too broad behind the driver tip IMO.

My Rebar hasn't made in into this thread yet as it's not finished, but I'm going to be killing off / pillaging my DeSTroyer mod to enhance a BO Diesel, killing off the Blasted Thing mod (was never happy with that) to enhance the BO Rebar and Wave (Formally known as the Ripple or Wave Lite), and probably doing some tweaks to the PST III too. I don't mind the SOG scissors in there, but I don't like the way they don't let the pliers close fully. Lots of stuff to keep me busy this month  :)

I made a small adjustment to the PST III mod of mine this weekend. Here it is before I tweaked it ...

(http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx122/50ft-trad/Modded%20Leatherman/P1030329_zps46547f52.jpg)

The SOG scissors actually worked quite well in the PST frame, and didn't suffer as much from being "upside down" as they do in a SOG Powerlock frame. For those who weren't aware, they're kind of an outboard scissor configuration for inboard tools, which means the scissors lever goes the opposite direction to all other scissors. With the PST frame being so thin, this didn't matter so much when using the scissors, but when you weren't using the scissors they were a little too broad to fully stom into the handles. This meant that the tool never really closed properly.

I decided to switch these out for Fuse scissors, and found that actually created enough room to get an awl in there too. Here it is after the re-hash ...

(http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=44823.0;attach=137893;image)

Seems to be working out quite well. The drivers deploy slightly ... well .. overdeployed, by which I mean they go beyond stright with the body of the tool, but I don't find that a problem at all. In fact if you are just nipping up a loose screw, it can actually be a bit of a benefit. This tool originally came about because a while back I had an empty PST II frame after fitting all the innards into a PT-510 (which is now lost, or I believe may have actually been stolen from me at work), and so I fitted in whatever I had lying around go get it back carryable again. Overall I'm a lot happier with it like this than with the SOG scissors, and this actually gets a little more carry time than my original layout PST with pocket clip attached, mainly due to the scissors and serrated blade to accompany whatever plain edge knife I have on me at the time

2. Swap out the small screwdriver for a package opener (eg from the Wingman)  (I hate those plastic packages!)

I know people have done the micro bit swap, but can I do it where the can opener is?  Are they the same size?  And finally, where can I get one?

For the second, can you move the package opener (or I suppose any tool) from the Wingman over?  If not, do you know if there is a package opener that could be swapped into the Surge?  And again, any idea where to get one?

I'm so excited!  Thanks for any advice.

Welcome to the forum drzeller.  :cheers:
The sm bit driver can go where the can opener or sm flat is with some minor work to clear the locking tab pivot, see pic.
The Wingman parts won't swap over well.
I would make a package opener out of the can opener or a flat driver.
Worth a mention is that the small bit can be used without the bit driver (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,48706.msg841761.html#msg841761).

No. But you could file the lg bit driver like the sm bit driver pictured above and move it over. Then they should fit ok.

Not as a direct drop in with the LM scissors. You might be able to grind the bit driver to get the clearance, but I believe you AlX is BO and that wouldn't look good IMO.

Just a little hack on a little bit of a Leatherman:
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7571/16092024257_66a1c13bd0_z.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/qvZQb6)
Filed a shallow slot in one edge of my LM removable bit driver so that it fits better onto the phillips on my Spirit.  This allows the tip of the phillips to go all the way to the bottom of the hole and stops most of the side to side play.

I been testing PLSK against Tinker & Pioneer (actually it is a Farmer, I gifted my Pioneer to some fool oversea), IMO PLSK kicked their butts.

I like them too, just not love.
This is the Leatherman forum, so I am going to say this: SAK are boring.

All the implements are the same, yea some bigger some smaller, same same same.  ::)
Different combination of implements make up different model of SAK, Exciting !!!!!  :ahhh
Make them a few mm bigger, few mm smaller, add a layer, remove a layer, now we have hundreds different models. :woohoo:
With different color scales, they become highly collectible!  :drool:
Make some of the models in really small production number, people would kill each other for them too.  :pok:

Spirit is nice, but again, just those same implements pack in Leatherman format, and can't even lay flat on a table.

Here is my LM fuse with a pocket clip. The clip came from knifekits.com. The tiny nuts to secure the clip with were actually quite hard to find. Finally, I found them at Menards. (the nuts are 2mm and the bolts are 2.5mm for those who may want to try this). The clip did come with the bolts. There was really only one spot where the bolts would not interfere with the MT. Luckily, I did not have to do any disassembly for this modification.

Babola, you should move Portland and work for leatherman.

LOL...would love to be able to add few suggestions at least on different finishes if nothing else  :D

However, I get bored quickly and tend to move on, let's hope I stick with the MTs for a bit longer  :)

just looking through this thread for the first time -

Breezy, your modded wave, the serrated blade, it looks like the original wave blade with a seatbelt cutter ground into it, is that correct ? I couldn't find a reference to it on the forum ( i did look, honest), but that is a really cool mod, bigtime

my modded Wave also got the cerakote treatment (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,48986.0.html)... I love this color, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

the serrated blade is just a simple blade swap with the serrated blade found on a Charge TTi (http://www.leatherman.com/7.html#start=5), XTi, or ALX. :salute:

my cerakoted Wave (in the picture) also has the S30V main blade from a Charge.

Hi, new here but have been watching for some time. I've been working on a few tools and just finished this one. It is a new style Charge TTI, I swapped out the s30v pe blade and se blade with the ones from my edc wave making the wave my mini surge+.  The rest of the tools are stock.  I finished it with a bake on finish first desert tan then the top coat of earth brown. The inner frame is done in desert tan.  I'll post the wave in another post.

Here is what I call my mini surge+,  it has the mini surge mods (rebar pliers, rebar awl and wingman scissors). I added a s30v pe blade and a se w/cut hook. I carry this one in the pocket with the clip and it is a little slimmer than the charge TTI.

I like the "less is more" of that Swingman tool load-out.  True to Wingman character.  Curious about the position swap for the "file" and opener though :think:

Having released the scissors for another project I was going to do something similar but as it happens the cutters are the best in three examples I've handled so for the moment sticking with pliers.
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: jmoffatt on February 17, 2015, 04:24:30 PM
I put a thick washer between the phillips head and the frame that left space for the file to close beside the phillips, actually I realized that after the screwdriver end was togather and it was easier just to reposition the file.

I would like to note that i did not do the plier swap or the awl. I bought this off of ebay as a modded MT but then i added the scissors later. Also, when i got this it had the rebar phillips and a rebar small SD in place of the two bit holders. As you can see i put those back in. The awl is also from a rebar but has been ground down to fit. Still works great!

great idea for a club -- I wanna play too! :D

my ReCharge was the first mod I ever did (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,39153.0.html), and it's gone through plenty of changes (including cerakoting!) since the original plier head swap. :)
(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7365/11396709205_794af7160a_b.jpg)

this "skinny Charge" has been a terrific office EDC (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,49483.msg827517.html#msg827517) for me the past few months. :tu:
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3691/11899699833_9b832ec6d6_b.jpg)

(https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7378/11424063365_280329e5ec_b.jpg)

this Wave was a restoration project (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,44715.0.html), but turned into a mod of sorts. ;)
(https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8269/8698172636_8f2997545f_b.jpg)

I've got some smaller mods as well (Style CS/PS platform), but apparently I still need to take some pics of those. :think: And I've got a couple more that are either planned or currently in progress... :D

on that green wave, a). is the awl from the rebar and b). did take any grinding down to fit or is does it fit nicely without any grinding?

yes, it's a Rebar awl, and yes, it requires grinding, but only if you want the tool to close all the way. the grinding is fairly minor -- here's a pic comparing it to a stock Rebar awl.

I didn't know that though I could see in the top view pic provided in response to your request  :pok: that it wasn't Rebar.

Just happen to have spent a lot of time today adjusting the loadout of my Knifeless Rebar to fill the gap resulting from it losing its ex-Wave scissors to Wingman and became aware of the locking bar fit and clearance issues.

So I have been thinking about my Wave and how it will be modded.

Rebar pliers and Awl going on to it for sure. Want to get rid of the small bit driver and maybe add some outside scissors from a SAK.

Removing the scissors and mini driver leaves an empty spot. Any idea of what I could use to fill it?

Rebar pliers and Awl going on to it for sure. Want to get rid of the small bit driver and maybe add some outside scissors from a SAK.

Removing the scissors and mini driver leaves an empty spot. Any idea of what I could use to fill it?

More knife haha. Sidekick serrated blade inside. Outside file , scissors, knife, saw

Micra Tweezers would be cool, if the hole can be modified?

Right that could work.

Was thinking I could go whole hog and rock the Rebars 3D Phillips. Wonder if there would be enough room adding the 3D Phillips and Awl while dropping just the small driver and scissors?

Got 3 squirt s4s from ebay, one of them with the paint chipped to buggery i decided to freshen up. Just hand sanding and a bit of dremel work and it came up quite nice. getting in around the pivots was fiddly but i'm hoping to replace them with screws and it'll end up even better.

There are only 5.  I can only think the precision driver is a waste of Wave's limited space.  Unless you intend to drop the scissors  :pok:

They will fit the pivot okay but don't lock very well. You really want them from a ST300.

  Was a simple modification. On the fence about swapping the Rebar Pliers into the Charge TTi though: Good for the replaceable wire cutters, Bad on the aggressive teeth.

  (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab66/Xelkos/tools/DSC05458_zpstqqbjkfw.jpg)

  Marked the awl with red permanent ink, then rubbed graphite over the rounded pliers that Leatherman so graciously replaced for me. :D Looked for where the metals met and hand filed only those areas down.

modding is definitely a fun hobby for me, but all of my mods get used... some more than others. ;)

my ReCharge definitely gets the most use, but the Mini Surge 2.0 might start to compete for the top spot (once it's finished, that is). :tu:

I can dig why people loves their SAK, they are good tools,  the pioneer of MT and they have the historical value.

Make them a few mm bigger, few mm smaller, add a layer, remove a layer, now we have hundreds different models. :woohoo:
With different color scales, they become highly collectible!  :drool:
Make some of the models in really small production number, people would kill each other for them too.  :pok:

Spirit is nice, but again, just those same implements pack in Leatherman format, and can't even lay flat on a table.

A reworking of my Wingman with Wave scissors because, though "better", the cutters really didn't measure up to other tools in the available rotation.

A minimalist implementation.  Nothing clashes though I had to trim the large driver a few mm.  It was a design decision to retain the drivers at the stock end for best lock-up.

A bonus is that I have released the Wave scissors for another day :woohoo:

wanted this tool with pliers and knife
so had to buy the cs and ps to get what I wanted


now I want to add a knife back to the scissor model, take out the tiny scissors no real need for double scissors

is there a place to buy replacement knife blades or anyone here sell one that fits this model

A reworking of my single arm Wingman.

http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,51510.msg1066083/topicseen.html#msg1066083

The Wingman blade replaces the Schrade because I missed the combo blade recently when I had rope to cut.  The "file" returns as a shortie space filler and battery compartment driver.  A 90deg stop added to the Phillips driver.

And finally, for which I will request an OCD badge, the Wingman post flatted and an anti-rotation washer added next to the blade .

Here's my tti, with a homemade awl, rebar pliers, and wingman scissors.

I think that an awl and Rebar cutters are great assets, but Wingman scissors?

Maybe mine are not typical but the blade angle, lack of stiffness and polished grind results in very poor performance compared with Charge and Wave stock scissors.

Well done with the bolt slots.  I don't like showing my Rebar slotted bolts because I nicked the handle  :facepalm:

I've only cut paper with them so far, and they work well. If I have problems, I'll try the regrind mod on them. If they don't work out, I'll try something else. I've carried this charge every day for about 6 years and changed it up many times. So I don't mind messing with it if something doesn't work out. I also have a pair SAK scissors I could swap in.

Finally stuck the Rebar plier head onto my Wave.  Doing a cable cut test (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,60344.msg1113037.html#msg1113037) convinced me that my modded Wave (+ Wingman scissors, small flat driver and awl) was superior to the Rebar for in almost every way - except for the cable cutters.  Only had to modify the locking pin for the blade, shorten the small flat driver and clean up the back of the awl to make it fit.

Harry did you have to do anything special to make the awl and two flat drivers to fit. Is the smaller flathead from the Rebar?
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: hiraethus on July 09, 2015, 07:34:53 AM
They're all modified in some way. The small flat head is from a Kick/Fuse/Blast and it's been shortened and had a little taken off the underside to clear the lock mechanism. The large flat head is from a Rebar and it's been shortened to clear the pliers rest in the handle. The awl is from a Rebar too, and I ground the back down so it cleared the pliers head.

Very nice Hiraethus, looks like exactly the loadout I'm planning. Out of interest have you put your Rebar back together yet? I'd be interested to see that. I was thinking of trying to fit the left overs in, and then potentially turning it into a blunt nose plier tool.
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: hiraethus on July 09, 2015, 12:28:26 PM
Not yet - I think it'll be a bladeless blunt nose version of the Rebar with scissors.  I've already ground the pliers from a Blast down, now I just need to pull the bit driver from another mod and swap everything over.
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: Henry on July 10, 2015, 01:17:33 AM
So get around the length of the scissor issue by putting them down the side? I hadn't thought of that but if its being set up as a '2nd' tool then it makes sense.
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: hiraethus on July 10, 2015, 07:44:46 AM
I've already fitted a pair of Wave scissors to the Rebar - I ground the thumb pad down a bit to fit - so I'll reuse them.

My Wave is now modded... a rebar plierhead with the s30v and serrated/hook blade from a Charge - should have just got a charge but because it was a gift and sentimental I wanted to keep the wave...

  Great job man! I like the look of large Torx screws by the outside tools on the Wave better than the Knurled screw on the charge. By the way do you have any plans for your dismantled Charge? If not Id be interested in buying or trading for the remains. :pok:

I agree with that about the torx :) and unfortunately I never had a Charge - I bought the blades from TexasToolCrafters however I did buy a rebar for the plierhead...

I posted this over in the mod squad but I'll post it here as well.



I've been thinking about doing these mods for a while. Always thought that the Rebar's awl needed to be pointier and sharper. I also never liked the tapered med screwdriver as it hampers the ability of the screwdriver to access recessed screws. Spent a little time on the bench grinder today and remedied both issues.

All done, awl is super sharp and much better suited for poking things   :D    and the screwdriver will be able to get at recessed screws.

(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k115/asc67/Awl%20mod/IMG_5887_zpspp6brji5.jpg)


edit :

I decided to refine the awl a bit more

Not a lot is the short answer. Either lose another tool and fit another larger bit driver (ala ALX) or create a custom tool which is both shorter than and sits lower than the post.

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to this forum, but I thought I would share my mod/hacks that I did on my wave. There are only 4 original tools left, the large flathead screwdriver, the can opener/ bottle opener, the saw, and the file. The rest are from a wingman, a kick, a rebar, bought separately or fabricated. The obvious ones are s30v blade, the rebar pliers, and the wingman scissors. From the kick I used the medium flat head, and the 3D Philips. Where the old scissors were, I modified a 32 gig flash drive to fit. I modified a hacksaw blade to fit into the slot for the pocket clip and lanyard, it slides in and out and lock in both positions using the inside tools locking mechanism. I also added a notch in the other slot made for the pocket clip to hold a pair of tweezers from a SAK. The last thing is that I added the pocket clip from the wingman because it left the slot open and because I already had it.
Thanks

Hello all.

Just been going through this thread and WOW, cool stuff!

I need some help. I have a charge tti with the s30v blade.

I'm looking to replace the pliers with a more robust pair with replaceable blades. Also I would like to replace the existing scissors with an awl, replace the serrated blade with large scissors, and replace the file with... something? A better file?

What I would like to know is where I can source these parts? Which leatherman has compatability parts?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: Demel on September 18, 2015, 03:26:47 PM
Welcome to the forum. :cheers: Most mods done like that harvest parts from the rebar and wingman. I could be wrong, but I don't think you will find a better file that the diamond file that leatherman has. Scissors can come from the wingman. The pliers and awl can be taken from the rebar. Good luck on your work
Title: Re: The Hacked Leatherman Owners Club.
Post by: Franimal on September 18, 2015, 03:31:52 PM
To answer another question you may have. Leatherman does not sell individual parts or components. All of the above customized tools are created from the personally acquired collection of parts by dissembling whole tools for the parts. Orrrrrr... Discovering this wonderfully fantastic community and finding someone who graciously bestows upon you their awesomeness and offers parts! Btw thanks everyone! For the knowledge, and everything

Hey thanks for the quick reply!

Hmm my diamond file wore smooth on its second use which is why I'm not thrilled with it. I use diamond files regularly so know how to use them so wasn't doing anything stupid.

And hey franimal, yup I know I can't get spares from leatherman! Also understand voiding warrantee's and such. I was mostly wondering which models to scavenge from, or if anyone maintains a "bits" box.

Yup, thought the rebar looked like a good doner just wasn't sure about the size compatability so thanks for that!

And thanks for the welcome! I have been lurking a bit but had to post as this topic is just what I needed because my charge (which I really like) is driving me nuts... those pliers! What were they thinking?

All done, awl is super sharp and much better suited for poking things   :D    and the screwdriver will be able to get at recessed screws.

edit :

I decided to refine the awl a bit more

The top edge is sharp as well with a slight angle to it

Pliers from a Blast, scissors from a Wave, small flat driver from a Kick.
Also contains Rebar blades, phillips driver, large flat driver, awl, saw and file.

Hey thanks for the quick reply!

Hmm my diamond file wore smooth on its second use which is why I'm not thrilled with it. I use diamond files regularly so know how to use them so wasn't doing anything stupid.

And hey franimal, yup I know I can't get spares from leatherman! Also understand voiding warrantee's and such. I was mostly wondering which models to scavenge from, or if anyone maintains a "bits" box.

Yup, thought the rebar looked like a good doner just wasn't sure about the size compatability so thanks for that!

And thanks for the welcome! I have been lurking a bit but had to post as this topic is just what I needed because my charge (which I really like) is driving me nuts... those pliers! What were they thinking?
Yep, rebar is the cheapest source for the updated pliers and awl in the midsized tool line. If you would like an alternative to the wingman scissors (which is admittedly a much easier swap) Victorinox 91mm scissors are fairly easy to aquire, and can fit   a Charge with a bit of drilling/grinding (lockup requires a little more grinding of the tang, but is not necessary, as using these scissors pushes them into the blade stop anyhow). If you already have a dremel (or want an excuse to get one) go for the Vic scissors route.

As for the pliers, I assume you want to know why they put the cap crimper on... in which case I have to agree, I dont know what they were thinking, compromising the pliers with such a marginally functional tool.

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to this forum, but I thought I would share my mod/hacks that I did on my wave. There are only 4 original tools left, the large flathead screwdriver, the can opener/ bottle opener, the saw, and the file. The rest are from a wingman, a kick, a rebar, bought separately or fabricated. The obvious ones are s30v blade, the rebar pliers, and the wingman scissors. From the kick I used the medium flat head, and the 3D Philips. Where the old scissors were, I modified a 32 gig flash drive to fit. I modified a hacksaw blade to fit into the slot for the pocket clip and lanyard, it slides in and out and lock in both positions using the inside tools locking mechanism. I also added a notch in the other slot made for the pocket clip to hold a pair of tweezers from a SAK. The last thing is that I added the pocket clip from the wingman because it left the slot open and because I already had it.
Thanks

What was your source for the hacksaw? Was it a regular hacksaw you hollowed out, or a saw blade that came that way?

Also, wouldn't the weight of the tool damage any USB device you plug that into?

I'm in the club  :D
I dumped the mini driver & added a rebar awl & pliers head to my ALX. I was never going to use the mini driver, now it has a much better tool load out, for me anyway. 
The awl was rubbing the tool handle and pliers stop. So I thinned it down a couple thousandth on each side.
and moved the spacer to the outside of the awl.

I need drivers but not the mini driver, the awl was a good choice to replace it.
I've made bit extensions for it, along with a saw blade for the pocket clip slot.
So I think this will be a good working tool for me.

I would ask this guy: Toolslinger's SurCharge (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,54732.0.html) + Toolslinger's ST300 XD (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,61197.0.html).

Here are some pics of two ST300 awls, one of which I ground down to fit into a Charge.
I've not seen the ST300 t-shank holder in person so I don't know if it could be worked to fit sorry.

Afraid it won't work. The amount of material that you'd have to remove would seriously compromise the part by the time you got it to fit.

You'd be better off trying to grind a Surge exchanger to fit on the outside like Metro did way back.

What about making the t-shank liner lock compatible, any chance of that happening?

Not sure that the EOD one would be convertible to liner lock. The Surge one has been done by Metro in one of his older hack threads.

Next time I have the XD apart for cleaning/tinkering/maintenance I'll try and get some detailed pics and measurements.

I think I'm gonna dive into my ReCharge Today.

Just gonna pull a bit driver off and swap it with an Awl and Scissors if they will fit.

If I grind down the plier rest inside the handle, can I get away with a longer awl?

Also going to Gun Blue the screws just to get them darker again.

I'd also like to darken the scissors and awl just so they match but in not sure how to go about the scissors......

If you take out the bit driver on the side with the small bit driver, you should be able to fit in the awl, small bit driver, scissors in that side of the frame. The only thing that might be problematic is the height of the awl may interfere with the pliers. I say this because there is some variation in tolerances that allow it to work on some combinations of parts but not all. You can always grind the awl down a bit for more space.

My suggestion is to try it first without touching the plier rest and see if it closes to your satisfaction.

If you do decide to got the route of removing the rest, I found that I could carefully pull the rest and blade retainers off the rivet and then use a punch and hammer to flatten the rivet from the inside of the tool handle. This allowed good lockup of handle tools, extra space for the pliers and tools and meant that I didn't have to try breaking or grinding anything in the handles.

Went the wrong route lol

O shortened the awl. Although I didn't really want an awl, I wanted a metal scribe I could draw lines with in paper. So I shortened it.

But the scissors...oh man....

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to this forum, but I thought I would share my mod/hacks that I did on my wave. There are only 4 original tools left, the large flathead screwdriver, the can opener/ bottle opener, the saw, and the file. The rest are from a wingman, a kick, a rebar, bought separately or fabricated. The obvious ones are s30v blade, the rebar pliers, and the wingman scissors. From the kick I used the medium flat head, and the 3D Philips. Where the old scissors were, I modified a 32 gig flash drive to fit.

it is just a head swap, but I am glad I did it.

Thanks Had to try the blunt nose to see how I like it after you were so fond of it Zoidberg. I tried adding a ratchet a while back on the outside, but that involved hacking off some metal from the outside. Here are some more pics.

First post, figured it should be of my newly hacked wingman..
The serrated blade, file and saw came from a cheapo I had lying around. Thought about just upgrading to the wave, but I love the small package of the wingman. I just didn't care much for the tool selection. I always have a good blade on me so the half serrated blade had to go. (http://i.imgur.com/FzZwJ8Q.jpg)

The"file" that was on there was...uh, lacking.(http://i.imgur.com/VtBQ5Iu.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/Kow9jli.jpg)
 Lastly, I'd much rather have a decent saw than that little opener thingy.
(http://i.imgur.com/uP2ohuE.jpg)(http://i.imgur.com/POcHtzw.jpg)
I think next will be to turn the package opener into a nice awl. (http://i.imgur.com/LGS3jgM.jpg)
It's not the prettiest mod but it's got everything I need and want, and it functions flawlessly.

They are basically the same width and the Rebar is about 1/8" longer. They are the same thickness minus the pocket clip on the Sidekick.

Signing in. First the issues. Almost runned to bigger issued but managed with small ones for now. All MTs I have has needle nose pliers so blunt nose mod it is. Took some time with almost dremel. With time went ok still. Issue was when starting to close new blunt nose ST, it did not close fully. So blunt plier head was hitting to large flat head. Plier just long enough to hit small flat side so not dropping (then it would be bigger problem). So I did very short blunt nose (on purpose).

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160114/1669404e2818ed580ecd76fea2bf27ea.jpg)

So I did round flats a bit and now tool closes directly without extra effort.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160114/c25beb656d16bbc0697f6dc8fd24f9c4.jpg)

So flats are not so good as before but I will do with those. And maybe some day see if thinking new tools to replace flats (ideas?) On the other side philips is longer then flats and there plier did close smoothly. So no tools trying to fail blunt mod. But I am happy for the result and now have one blunt nose plier MT:

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160114/e32861ae9dbdc5eb8425ee764f676bca.jpg)

I have finally made my custom Rebar. I replaced the awl, saw and PE Blade with Wave Scissors and Bit holder. I also discovered that any stock inside tool from a Rebar can fit anywhere in the tool, including on the sides, where the lock pivot interferes with Wave scissors.
Results:

You might be wondering about the extra long pliers pivots. Well, I only had pivots for a Blast, so... yeah. Itll do for now. Plus, as it turns out, those extra long pivots make a decent pocket clip.

No idea. I recieved that Rebar basically brand new, but it had no pliers pivots or awl. The knurled part of the screws was also stripped, but came with flathead cutouts. I say its a win.

I want to, but im afraid they arent threaded all the way down, and then ill be out a tool (its ugly, but at least this way it's functional). Ill leave it for now, until I find the right length pivots, or get confirmation its threaded down far enough for what I need.

It works great as a scraper, but I wouldn't try to do any serious prying with it. The Spirit scraper is the same story, I usually use the caplifter/large SD for prying, it's thicker and more centered in the tool. :)

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/Mobile%20Uploads/20160213_134846_zpswhasoct6.jpg)

I just wanted to add variety, and two exact same "FUSEs" were refundant, so I took the Dremel...

(http://i1314.photobucket.com/albums/t562/ThePeacent/Mobile%20Uploads/20160213_143009_zpsfrxa8isp.jpg)

End result

Now I must admit I am a bit concerned about the strength of the pliers. The FUSE always felt kind of flimsy to me...

Did a little plier swap on my Rebar today. I've been finding my tools with the cap crimper head pretty handy and I don't cut much wire so here we are. I picked up some parts on the forum including a couple plier heads. The other one I have from a Wave may become a blunt nose .

Rebar awl and flat drivers on this side. I actually ended up using the small flat driver from a Kick instead of the one from the Rebar. it fit in there very nicely after a little reprofiling. :tu:
(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15350244988_902f1119e4_h.jpg)

I was hoping to find a little more info on how exactly you were able to close the pliers with that small flat driver.

I have the exact same inside tool layout in the same positions on that handle but the only difference is I'm using a small flat driver from a rebar not a kick.

They look similar but I am unsure of the exact differences if any in those two small flat drivers.

The only way I can see to get the rebar pliers to close properly is to shorten the length of that driver which I really am trying to avoid doing.

That kick driver looks like is has not been shortened. How is it able to fit properly (other then reprofiling the top edge)?

Appreciate any help. :-)

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/9ff72f949ecf4b3eb66d2bf67d008042.jpg) Then i added Victorinox pen, tweezers and toothpick, i filed notches in the endpieces en they hold in nicely (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/a2c017f91e7e2cc13621e2c74b2ba0e1.jpg) (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/77ace73aa6d910e884d2ba028bcf3111.jpg) (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/6e1ef16a3f0a462d4eabd40bbbaca8b0.jpg) I also added an Awl and changed the flat driver to a chisel (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/8d6abd7d41c7e47704193f5dad2d177d.jpg) (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160618/7b812212dfc2079bfb3eae5418e28c2c.jpg) I might change the awl to a better one in the future.


I would like to add a rebar head, S30V blade an cerrated blade with gut hook, but i would have to buy other Leathermans for that but in Belgium that cost a whole lot so that's for later.

What can I say... that looks brilliant and certainly unique
The coloring of the handles turned out really nice


gefeliciteerd met je werk

P.S.:
Lots of members here have spares, so if you need something in particular it's always worth asking (probably not Rebar awl/pliershead as those are quite popular).
Loki mobile has a good stock of spares he sells "Parts for Upgrade/Repair Leatherman multitools (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,64314.0.html)".

First, disassemble, then take the piece and hold it with visegrips/in a vise clean of the surface and apply heat with some sort of torch, apply the heat evenly until you have the desired color. The colors go gold->purple->blue->dark grey
U can also use a barbeque but I don't think u can reach purple or blue with that.

I'm planning out my first big modding, and was wondering if anyone has swapped the OG Wave scissors into the new Wave?  I know I will have to work out a locking tab notch, and reverse the order of the tools in the handle, but is there anything too major in doing this that I haven't seen yet?  I think the old style scissors are thinner than the new ones...

If it matters, I also intend to give the new Wave pliers from a Rebar....

Diamond file for the Rebar II.  proof of concept.

I've had this Wave file for a while and had been meaning to give this a go. What was holding me back was not knowing if I could drill through the file with the drill bit I had on hand. I remembered that I had a bit my brother had given me when I helped him remodel his kitchen. We burned up a bunch of my masonry bit trying to drill through the tiles on his floor to anchor the island cabinets. Anyway he found this bit for drilling through glass tiles and gave me one. I figured I would give it a try and to my surprise it cut through the file with no problem. I drilled it from both sides. I used my dremel with a cut off disk to cut and shape and notch the file. Cleaned up on my bench grinder.

 Drill bit

Unfortunately the regular side of this file is a bit worn out but I just wanted to see if this would work and it does. It rubs a little bit on the handle when opening and closing but not too bad.

I think they are they same as the PST and PST II with a locking notch cut :think: But I have never taken one apart and I may be wrong :whistle:

Would still be sweet to find a bunch of them though :cheers:

The PST II file will work in the Rebar with very minor mods.  The pivot size is the same as the Rebar and would only require slight widening of the notch for the lock, although it did lock as is just not well. The other would be remove a little V section at the bottom to clear the locking bar ramp when closed. Again it works as is just sticks up a bit when closed.

Made an awl out of a medium flathead for my Pulse ,  I think from a Wave. Swapped out the can opener for it. No modification needed to fit the Pulse locks perfectly. I did have to swap positions with the small flathead because it was getting hung up on the Phillips. I might play with it some to see if a washer between it and the phillips would give it the clearance it needs.

The Kick clip and pivot was a straight swap (no modding needed to the pivot :o ) I did flatten the clip but I did that many years ago to use them as a knurled screw wrench and I always forget that I did that so you need to either flatten it or cut the notch ;) I am very pleased with how well it clips and am glad I done this mod and will never go back to having this Rebar without a clip :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Did some more work on the awl last night. I was able to move it back to where the can opener was by adding a spacer so it would clear the Phillips.

Also while the awl looked good it didn't perform well so I reprofiled the edge and sharpened her up quite a bit.



Yep she's sharp now !

Upon searching the other threads, I can't find it either :think:  Perhaps I hit "back" instead of post. 

Well, it's a Wingman clip I ordered.  It came with the screw, and it fit in the hole.  Of course not all the way on with the clip in the way.  So I added some Loctite just in case, and it seems very solid.  I'm not sure if it is necessary,  but I was afraid it could loosen over time.  I can't wait to carry it.  I just ordered another clip to replace the Nite-Ize clip on my other one.

Question for the molders please. Wave tools and rebar/300 tools interchangeable or need modifications? The locking mechanism look to be different, but I haven't opened up my wave yet.

I would like to make the wave my go to, but it needs more (usefull) tools.

I would like to make the wave my go to, but it needs more (usefull) tools.

The Wave and Rebar have the same size tools.
The ST300 has the same inner pivot but larger outer pivot.
Here is a post from earlier in the thread that shows the difference.

I would ask this guy: Toolslinger's SurCharge (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,54732.0.html) + Toolslinger's ST300 XD (http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,61197.0.html).

Here are some pics of two ST300 awls, one of which I ground down to fit into a Charge.
I've not seen the ST300 t-shank holder in person so I don't know if it could be worked to fit sorry.

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3714/8955655311_624eefd611_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/eDo5jc)

Now depending on what tools and where you want them to be is how much you'll have to change.
I would recommend choosing all the tools first, then peeps can pitch in with ideas on how to achieve that setup.

Roger that  :salute: thanks for the reference. The bigger awl with larger outter circumference has a similar looking large "nail nick" to the wingmans tools.

I think I'll look into replacing or omitting the small driver, can opener and scissors.

I'm actually not sure ;) haha. I just know the small driver and scissors and can opener are not going to be used and are taking room. If I can swap out for other tools that's cool, if not maybe just free up some space and weight?

I dunno. We'll see I guess.

Not sure if this is the proper place to ask this question, but here goes:

I did the Rebar plier conversion to my Charge ALX and it worked great, *however* I was hoping to then put the Charge pliers into my Rebar and then gift it to my young nephew.

But when I went to fit the pliers into the Rebar I realized that the holes cannot be made to line up... Something to do with the grooves cut into the heel of the pliers I think.

If anyone has a solution for this I'd be grateful!

If not - well then I guess I have a bunch of Rebar parts for sale!

May I join the club? I added DIY clip and glass cutter to my Rebar. I hope you like it. This is my first mod ever. Why so late? The reason is quite stupid: Before I started to read this forum I didn't know that there are screws in pivots. I had thought that there are rivets on a permanent basis and it is impossible to disassemble them :facepalm:

It is filled down part of professional cutter used by glaziers. Sorry but I don't have another :( The clip is TIG welder stainless rod. This mod was quite complicated: lot of drilling, soldering and file-work. As soon as I find some free time I will post a thread how I did that.

Check this out. I'd have liked to done this but looking at the cap lifter if you flatten it there's not as much straight edge as in this pic. Not sure what tool source they started with? But I don't believe it to be a lm bottle opener. Because it tapers earlier on the too far side.

Did you have to do anything special so the tool would close properly?  Any grinding on anything?

Thanks! Yes I had to do many specials so the tool would close proprerly.
1. I removed pliers stopper. I mean small nib behind safety knives lock.
2. I grinded awl to shapener shape.
3. I grined edges of pliers.
I don't know, if you understand me. My English is not good... I can take a photo, if you want.

No Scissor! This setup is for hard work. I used massive philips and flathead screwdrivers and awl. I wanted removable bit's holder. And multitool is full, no free place...
I needn't Scissors. I wear Wavebar with Micra, bit kit and bit adapter in pounch together. Nice EDC setup!  :climber:

I see, very interesting setup! Are there Surge's file and saw? How do you lock these tools in working position?

Bought in this setup:
Rebar with the pliers from the wave, and the awl was switched with the scissors from the wave as well.

The previous owner now has a Wave with removable wire cutters and an awl, and decided this one had no further use.
