I didn't pack my kit yesterday.  I was fooling around with my dryer and reached for my PW2 immediately realizing I didn't have it  :(.  I wont make that mistake today.

Would anyone mind sending me the dimensions on one of these? As I’m sure you’re all aware, they’re very difficult to locate and I’ve decided to try making a similar tool. Mostly just need overall length, width and material thickness.

They are 4 inches in length, 1 inch in width and 1/8 of an inch thick :salute:

I do hope you can make something similar :woohoo: :like:

I don’t want to abuse the site rules in anyway or try to get around paying my fair share. I’m assuming the R&D section would be the appropriate place to post further? I don’t intend on mass production or profiting off it, maybe sending out a few for help prototyping and testing at max.

You could always contact Grant Lamontagne as he would be the best to see how you should go about it :cheers:

If you are mainly wanting to make these for yourself and get some feedback, then it shouldn't be a problem :salute:

This is going to show my rather pampered lifestyle :facepalm:
Let me know if this is hijacking the thread and I’ll shut up. I shifted from working in warehouses to office so my main tool use has been the ones in the P4 Squirt and SAKs.
But I still carry the Knipex XS pliers and miss carrying the PW mainly for its better prying (compared to my Shard or the SAK bottle opener) and the additional bit opening when I need that extra screwdriver.

So between Knipex and the PW which has better application or usage to you? I guess this is more addressed to folks who carry these for work.

Note my question is not about functionality but which of these get used more often. I’m aware that it’s really dependent on your needs and what each tool offers. But just curious as for my pocket use I haven’t needed the Hulk grip that the Knipex provides. And the closed wrench portion of the PW hasn’t been a disadvantage yet.

Thanks!

Never really carry a Knipex in my pocket (I have the one size up for the XS) so the PW gets more use but I do really like having a Knipex close by in my work backpack just in case :cheers:

I always have a PWII on me, but don’t carry a Knipex unless I anticipate need.

Thanks for all the feedback. Yeah I’m think of leaving the Knipex in the car and just carrying the PW. I’ve stopped carrying a backpack and the pliers just seems a bit heavy in the pocket along my usual stuff.  I occasionally use the Knipex but nothing that a PW couldn’t handle.

(Image removed from quote.)

That bit driver looks great! It seems to hold regular bits, not the thin Leatherman ones. Does it handle both sizes?

It will take both :tu: it is an aftermarket handle for the LM Ratchet Driver  :salute: I like the smaller handle profile that it has vs the one that holds full sized 1/4 inch bits :cheers: I have a large handle that keeps regular longer bits in it that fits the LM Ratchet Driver as well but it stays at home because it is a bit to big for pocket carry :D

And would you mind sharing the source of that bit holder?!  :pok:

I won´t post a pic as I fear you will :twak: me, but I have been carrying a PW II copy alongside my MT (MP 600 or Swisstool X) and SAK for quite some time. I would have liked an original, but I only learned about them when they were no longer made and the "EDC Gear" branded copy is made well enouugh to serve me well for prying, scraping, opening service doors and turning a bolt or two now and then.

It is the Leatherman Ratchet Driver (fits in LM bit drivers) that they released a couple years ago :cheers: the handle (fits onto the ratchet drivers end) with bit storage is an aftermarket part made by Zapwizard, a member here, on Shapeways and on his own website :tu:
