I am sorry for not being more explicit. Yes, I dismantled it in order to clean it. There was a lot of gunk and corrosion between the tools near the pivots.

A complete take apart is the best way to clean the old school tools :salute: I have done it with several of them over the years but sometimes I am lazy and just clean it as good as I can without taking it apart  :whistle: :D

Always great to see an OG Supertool in action  :like:
If it comes to any dusty/sandy work environment the simple and solid designs are your best bet  :tu:

I have reached the following conclusion:

The ST 300 may be a better heavy duty MT than the OG (possible the best of all unless outside opening tools are a must), but it is not better for me. At work I always have linesman pliers with me, so the robust ST 300 plier head is not needed. Taking that away, the lighter weight and simpler design of the OG wins out. It is a joy to carry and use.

The OG really is hard to beat :cheers: I never feel lacking when I have it with me :tu:

I use a 300 more because it is the same toolset and the locks are just a bit easier :D Plus, it is my Avatar :whistle: :rofl:

I would like the ST300 and Rebar more if they had the locking tabs rounded/formed like on the Surge.

Sooo... wouldn't be the ST200 the ideal inbetween then?  :dunno:

:hatsoff:

The rocker locks aren't as comfortable in plier use and unlocking as either the OG or the 300 ;)

I would love if the locks were a bit more rounded on the 300 and the Rebar :salute: perhaps in the next iteration :think: :woohoo:
