Random Tool Using Tips
« on: May 17, 2007, 03:15:13 AM »
So lets here them! How have you learned to use your multi better?

I'll start us off with a couple of my own:

1- When using my Leatherman's screwdrivers, I usually open the screwdriver handle all the way. This way the tool is like one long screwdriver, and the end of the other handle lines right up with the driver so I can use the tool like a normal screwdriver. This works especially well on the Juice models. It really speeds things up (once I was working with a guy to take down a whiteboard, and after he started working on his screw, I pulled my KF4 out and had my half done before him. No reason that I should have felt so smug about it, but...  :angel: )

2- If you're using a tool where the knife opens from the inside (ie blast,fuse,kick), and you want to get closer to the thing you're cutting, just open the pliars up and use it like that. Fills the hand and is really very comfortable as far a knives go.

3- If you're clamping down on something thats big enough so that the handles are too far apart to get a good squeeze, open up some of the screwdrivers to give some more leverage (doesn't work well on wave/charge types, but works well on juice or kick/fuse/blast.

Lets here some more, including if you've found any cool ways to carry.  :)

Not ignoring you here NeitherExtreme, I just can't think of any good ones to add to your list!  :-\

I do like your #1 and #2 ideas though!    (Never had an occasion to try #3)

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every must first acquire a lot of tools

I've used #1 and #2. I like #1, makes using the bit driver on the LM Charge much easier.
