$2 at harbor freight. They're pretty good, and the coating is holding up pretty nicely.

I'm really enjoying this thread, JA.  The photos have been excellent, as always.   :salute:  It's really fun to see these tools out in the wild.   :D

I enjoy these type of threads to Joel.  It is nice to see tools actually get a work out.  Sadly to say, mine see very minimal use.

Keep up the good work!  :salute:

Thanks Spatha and Mike

The fat man got put to work in the shop today fixing a few things.

the crimper worked good when I rigged a jumper wire to keep the blower fan working in my plow truck.




a few minutes ago I used the  Phillips to tighten up the screw's on a dewalt light.




I'm really appreciating the long drivers.

  a super tool in my opinion:)

You know there's an electrical crimper built in the the back of the plier pivot?

yeah I know. It works good also but I wanted to show the crimpers on the pliers head in use.

the back work better for small wire that is for sure.

I think there are made for eod stuff but I try and use all the parts of my multitool that I can.

The behind plier one doesn't work so well for fat things, the pivot gets in the way.

Lol that last post makes me laugh.

the boys are getting babied tonight.

cleaned,sharpened and oiled.

I like the steel leatherman is using . Its easy to maintain and takes a wicked sharp edge. Rust is still a issue but that is nothing oil can't fix

I'm trying to do a bladeless Rebar for similar reasons but I can't get the damned pivots out.

The plier head ones came out as easy as pie and the Fuse (both ends) did to. I just can't get a decent grip on the Rebar.

I did some sub zero testing with the Rebar today when I spent awhile outside shoveling a path.

its smurfing cold.



If you remember the oht failed the test. :(

The Rebar on the other hand worked flawlessly when I did a similar test. :tu:



I dropped it in snow open,  drop in snow/pack full of snow, knock out snow close, open and use inside tools after it melted in my pocket and froze together again.



I'm sure that the st300 aka Fat Man would pass the zub zero test also but I'll have to find out for sure another day.

The OHT pliers got frozen up and jammed in a similar test.   :(

You beat me to it, JA!  I don't know how you cope with that freezing weather.  I'd be more worried about my hands getting frozen up than my multitool.  It's been pretty mild here so far this winter.  In fact, it hasn't snowed at all yet where I am.

Gotcha. Still have to admit, look at all the stuff it did do, even when it was filled up with a bunch of junk, sand and dirt.

I'm getting a home ready for sale today.

not much work for fat man but he did help a little.

I used the plane edge blade to lift a little of the plastic wrap covering a new microwave off
and other appliances



here I used a rag to make a pair of soft touch pliers so I could install some of the final plumbing pieces.
