:iagree: :like:

As soon as the Skeletool challenge is done, the PW2 will pair nicely with my ST300 :dd:

I've been lucky to get some new Black Chrome Vanadium PWs  :woohoo:

Just took some quick pics...

The machining appears to be finer than on the Stainless version I have.

Ok  fellows, where are y'all finding these?
I've got my share of OPTs over the years but this one looks totally different and useable.

I’d recommend keeping an eye on the ‘bay.  They pop up there from time to time lightly used or even new for reasonable prices.

Didn't get a pic :oops: but I did use the Pocketwrench to take off a replaceable scraper blade from a floor scraper and put a newer bigger one on :woohoo: the bolts looked to be 1/2 inch or bigger :think: but I didn't have to track down a wrench or any other tool and it worked perfect 8) :like:

Great it worked for you there  :2tu:

I had used mine 2 weeks ago on an exercise bench.
17mm nut bolt with secure nut at the other end.
The Wave and PW were at it's limits but I could tighten it up fine without getting the toolbox out of the shed.
No slipping or any  with the PW. The limit seemed to be the leverage I had on the tools itself.

Well, the Wave could open a bit wider still but I wouldn't be able to grab it well with only one hand then.

As I’ve carried a PW for so long, but they are discontinued, I thought it prudent to grab a few backups when the opportunities arose.

Note the top one is an original PW.  The addition of the rulers on the PWII was a definite upgrade.  Sadly, this example isn’t in great shape; the spots and discoloration appear to be rust.

The second from top looks to have seen by far the heaviest use of the four CV tools.  The yellow appears faded, not as bright as the newer looking ones, but still perfectly clear and legible.
