Go for it!
Weight doesn't mean anything. Its not like it is a brick or something like that. Strap that beast to your belt and go surf up something with it.

One a more serious note. Go for it. If anything you can put it in a glove box or carry it in your bag as back up. If you carry a bag that is.

The can openers wire stripper on fat man really works well.:tu:

I used it today to strip some wires when I replaced a small section of wire for a water meter remote reader.

it worked great on both the outside casing and the small internal wires . No damage to the wires by accidentally nicking a internal wire when removing the outside coating.


 :multi:

sorry no pics I was under a trailer house I wasn't gonna even try get a decent pic :(

Little boy+kit are working on a Vic hunter xt-cs doing some blade mods.

having everything in one kit is making my around the house projects alot easier.

I left room in the maxped for whatever hobby crap I feel like messing with.

I got the tools I need and my toys in a nice little package.

With a lot of help from the little boy kit I unrescued the rescue blade on my Vic xt-cs



I'm not done with it yet. A spear point blade should be pointy but that will have to wait for a different night.

The rebar tightened the clamps I used to hold it down while I was working on it. :)

Fat Man helped me this morning by cutting off the heads of a few smaller nails to make finishing nails.


no damage and a easy cut. The longer fatter handles make a huge difference. The rebar has the same cutters but there no where near as powerful making cuts that the st300 can make

Oh I know victorinox has a little crappy half hole on the cap lifter. Im saying I wish they used the wire stripper design leatherman uses on a victorinox.

I'm having a kinda slow day so I thought I'd get some in action pics of the wire striper at work while i get some remote reader wire ready.

its way easier to get wire ready to connect in the nice warm shop instead of under some house

stripping the wire



I bend the wire to fit around the screws its connects with it seems to work better for me.



not to bad for inside pics :)

A little fyi.

I do have a new in package sliver st300 .

 I'm really gonna try push the st300's limits and If I do break it I will use the sliver one until I get the black one back.

I shouldn't need 2 rebars but I may also pick up a spare to make sure I don't baby the one I got.

these reviews are tough on tools  :cheers:

ok maybe I am looking for excuses to buy a new tool I can't afford  :facepalm:


edit

I just read through this thread

its going good so far. Kinda slow but it will pick up when it gets warmer.

thanks for reading and thanks admin for always fixing my links ect :tu:
