Fat man cuts wire very very well.  I just wired in a new water meter for a tenant.
I used the medium flat head and the Phillips also. Everything about this tool I like so far.

id buy one to replace this one of I lost it. Its that good of a tool.

the only other super tool I've used was the original.

 the new 300 is a great user its very similar to the original but with replaceable wire cutters and a locking tab instead of having to open one tool to close another.

I'm almost ready to say this is the best multitool for real work.
Almost.
I still have to use it more before I can say for sure.

The ST300  Rocks. That I will say :D

Glad you're doing well with the ST300 Joel :tu:  I'm assuming the Rebar isn't getting as much use since you have it as your off work tool?

The tools are kinda small on the OHT, at least IMO and the ST300 looks like it can take a beating and dish one out! :D

C'mon J, don't make it easy on the Rebar just because the ST300 looks like the original ST has been doing steroids and pumping iron for the past 10 years.

On the other hand it's odd how you're one of the few people that cam make me drool over a Leatherman. For me that's like drooling over a salad in a steak house

NICE Pair Stephen:tu:

Fat man got a good workout today. First I needed to repair the tilt on a radial arm saw. The long Phillips made getting at some recessed screws easy and I use the pliers to bend a metal pin that releases the saw for side to side movement. 



It also helped me replace a plug in that powers the saw.

The last job it finished was I used the crimper in the plier head to hold a few nails while I pounded them into a gate I had to fix.

I got to keep my gloves on :D It's way to cold outside to try holding a nail with bare hands.


Now I just put on the Rebar and I'm going to warm up and relax.  :cheers:

the phillips on the ST300 is longer than the one of Vic Spirit and Swisstool, right?

They are about the same length from the tabs but the whole ST300 driver from the handles is about 1cm longer than the Spirit one and I think 5mm than the SwissTool (It's in the car and I'm to lazy to go get it. :P Compared it to THIS.).

I used fat mans pliers to hold a piece of steel I tapped out to hold a bolt. Its part of the same saw as yesterdays table.



I also used it to remove and replace the table the saw rests on

The cap crimpers look awesome but I feel they take away from the usability of the pliers. That is unless you actually need the cap crimpers.

I do use the cap crimper for crimping on wire connecters and I found yesterday they work well for holding freezing cold nails.

I thought that it will weaken the pliers so they are the best to test.

I doubt after using them some that Il ever break them.

Time will tell.

I just like CC tools because they look great and are fairly rare (except for the ALX and TTI).

Neh, not trying to make you nervous. :D Just letting you know of the risks. I actually find it a great idea to utilize the cap crimpers, especially in small areas where you can't grip the nail without them.
