I contacted PowerPlay about their line of tools a few days ago and they sent me some cool info.  I figured I'd be nice and share...

Been having some issues and haven't managed it yet.  Should be uploaded by tomorrow, and hopefully I will figure out how to link to them for you!

I'll keep you informed.

I have them uploaded, but I have no idea how to get them to show up anywhere.  Perhaps when Esteban comes in to work tomorrow he may be able to help.

Actually I have been so busy the last week or so, I haven't even had a chance to look at them myself!

Hmmm, never saw those before. What's the background on Paladin Def?

They are manufactured by SOG for Paladin Tools.  SOG is pretty tight lipped about them, but Paladin is pretty open.

Having my own telecomm-servicing business I almost went with the 540 until I learned the tools don't lock. They are pretty nice tools though and some improvements to the Powerlock are noticeable.

It might be one of the others but I could swear I read that somewhere and that's why I didn't buy one. I gotta go search for the review I read that in. I'll post the link when I find it.  Hey, if I'm wrong then please let me know because I'll have to go buy one then. :D

Yah, check out the link Def gave us just three posts up. Click the PT-540 one. It shows a pdf file of the instruction manual, which talks about the blade lock mechanism.

Maybe you were thinking about the smaller PT-510, which doesn't have blade locks?

The 525 also has the tool locking so are they (525 545) both based on the Power Lock while the 510 is based on the Pocket PowerPlier? Did anyone else note that they say they are suitable only for cutting copper wire not steel? I also wonder if the bit adapter is included with the tool? I think I will go for the 525 in the new year.  :-\

Yeah, my bad. IIRC the 540 goes for around $100. That's a little too $ for me for now. It is a sweet looking tool though. :)

Hopefully the price will come down after it has been available for a little while.

If they are marketing it as a specialty tool, which they seem to be, I don't know if they will bring the price down.

Kinda funny- right at the beginning they state that it is for electricians and telecom professionals, then immediately afterwards they say this is not to be used in environments with exposed electrical wire.  I would think those would be the times when you'd want to have an electrician!

Also, it says "All components, especially the knife have extremely sharp edges.  Be careful to avoid injury when using"  What's the point (no pun intended!) of sharpened pliers? :P  And shouldn't you try to avoid injury all the time?

I love warning labels.... maybe they should take the eye protection bit out and suggest a good, solid helmet!

Have you noticed they have a different definition of a Spudger now?
quote
.SPUDGER
• Use the Spudger to press wires into IDC contacts, wire wrap
blocks, and as a small slotted screwdriver.

Nothing about clearing out patrice blocks now as on their site
