You can also find some historic info by digging up the prior and related patents from the Original Multiplier




Like how Mr Pinchy was inspired by an earlier Sliding Scissors Design


And the way it influenced future developments like SOG's Compound Leverage Pliers


And more recently Leatherman's OHT

Great patent references Ombud! :cheers: Man I do enjoy browsing through the patents to see how all these tools evolved. :)
In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools
