How difficult?
on: January 25, 2008, 07:38:08 PM
Anyone have any idea how difficult it would be to take the Serrated blade/cutting hook from a Charge ALX and put it in a Charge AL?

They both sit in the same spot in their respective tools, so it doesn't LOOK that hard :D  I use the hook quite a bit at work but prefer the rest of the AL to the ALX.

Well, I am not too sure but I think it would not be that hard... But the ALX and AL's have those knurled screws so it may be a bit harder. Unless you have those things Bob has!

Yep, they should interchange with no modifications required. The knurled screw sockets would make disassembly and reassembly a lot simpler. Send me a PM if you are interested.

They actually belong to Def. He had them made up special for the Multitool.org Charge tool project.

Lets just say they were such a difficult acquisition that the bridge wasn't burned behind me, it was blown up!

I want to offer these to members to use, but we really don't have any way of guaranteeing their safety.  It's not a matter of money, there's just no way to replace them, unless someone is willing to re-mortgage their home.

Couldn't you get members to send you a deposit via paypal and then return it when the tools are returned?
I'm back!!

I wish it was that easy.  Like I said, it's not a question of money, so having a deposit really doesn't keep the tools safe, it just means that I end up with a few bucks and no wrenches afterwards.

Plus, the deposit on them would be pretty hefty- in the $100-150 range because (I think) that's what they cost in the first place.

Wow, but the question is Who would not pay that to have them? I think it would pain me to pay that for a specialty tool, but just think of what I could do with them????

If there was even a slim hope of replacing them, they'd be passed around by now.

And don't forget, with a pair of optional Kick pocketclips ($5 each) you can work on the medium size knurled screws without needing sockets.

The Micra has four small knurled screws.

Here are pictures of the Large, Medium, and Small knurled screws Leatherman uses.







The size of those screws translates roughly into 7mm, 6mm, and 5mm for you metric folks.
