The idea, I had in my head about pictures of tools helping, didn't resolve as imagined. But, in their lackluster state, here they are; for whatever they're worth.  :facepalm:

Three different PowerAssist Stampings(two variations of the early one and one of the newer one).



Four PowerLocks. Two variations of the early stamping and two different later versions.



Five different PowerLock/Assist pliers heads. Two variations of the earlier version and three other castings.



Three different PocketPowerPliers.



Three PPP pliers heads(two variations of the early one and one later casting) pictured with the PT-510 pliers head.

Lots of variations GLBM. Yours pics are clear enough so we can document these differences. I’ll cross-reference what’s in the MT Encyclopedia to see what lines up and if there are discrepancies.  :tu:

Many thanks for you work with all of this, Max! :cheers:

It is really cool to see some SOG information being uncovered.  :)
SOG is really the only brand board-represented on MT.o that lacks a strong information base. :ahhh
Oh course, SOG doesn't make it easy with their lack of records and information. :facepalm:

The brochure that came with the PP lists the “P2” (Power Plier), the “P3” (Pocket Power Plier), Paratool (“Another great design from the team of Blackie Collins and Spencer Frazer”), the ToolClip and the Micro ToolClip. This brochure pre-dates the Internet, so a great informative reference. Difficult to photograph because of reflections and size. Will need to be scanned. I’m certain we can add some good info to build out the encyclopedia.  :tu:

Wow! That is nice, Max! Thanks for posting that one! :like:
That is the oldest brochure for SOG MTs I've seen. :o
Looking forward to the scan.  :popcorn:

Got a new to me SOG PowerLock in black oxide. Came in pretty good shape. Just needed a good cleaning and some WD-40. Didn’t come with a sheath so I am going to have to look for one.

That is a an uncommon one, JonesE! :like:

The piano locks weren't used for long on the early PowerLock 2.0 versions before going back to the solid lock lever. USA made too(indicated by the hex bolts). :)

Thanks for the info on the PowerLock GLBM. I didn’t realize the piano locks were that rare.

Great job finding a very nice Master Mechanic PPP. It sure looks nice.

SOG tools may be a bit finnicky, but I think they are still worth considering when buying a Multitool.  :)

Finally got a very early SOG PowerPlier V.1. I have a V.1 already, but it is a later one with the nail holes. The early one has the nail nicks, and I had been looking for one for a long time. Bought this one "used", but it had no issues aside from needing a cleaning.
The V.1 I had already will see some pocket time now, since it has light signs of use.  :woohoo:

Pics.

Finally got ahold of a Paladin PT-525. Looks like new after a cleaning with no notable signs of use. :woohoo:
















Sandwiched between the PT-510 and PT-540.

Congrats GLBM on the early PPP v.1 and the PT-525. I am glad your PPP will see some pocket time. I really enjoy mine.
