Got a broken Mini for $10. Rusted and gunked to the max. Both internal tools broken off. Plier head looked like it had been thrown in a fire. So I cleaned her up and added some new weapons.

Once again if has been done before and named previously I apologize. But if no name yet exists, I've been calling this one Mighty Mouse

And if someone could please explain to me in detail how to get these images to appear in the thread like how Adam did to my last post, I'd greatly appreciate it

Great buy! In my opinion, just the pliers and fold out handles are worth way more than $10.

To post a picture, you will need the image link:

https://i.imgur.com/xhOCOgd.jpg

Then you have to wrap the link with the img tags:

[ img]image link[/ img]
The spaces inside tag brackets are there only so that we can see the structure of the tags. Don't include spaces inside the brackets when you try to post a picture.

And when I insert the image link inside the image tags, the picture will be inserted into your post:



And you can change the image size by adding s, m, or l just before the period in the image link:

Some very excellent mods you have there, Ledernox :o :like:

Love how you put Kick and Fuse handles on the same tool and the half Rebar/Wave tool looks cool as well :like:

Inspired by Poncho, who posts this Charge knife a lot  :D and the topic Adam recently started I needed to make myself a half-ed Leatherman. I already had the halfRev, which worked pretty decent but I don't really like the blade on it. So I wanted a broken Wave to take apart, Charges keep high prices and are much harder to find around here. So I found a Wave with busted pliers, according to the seller the other things were fine. Price was about 1/3 of new Wave so I thought the deal was good. It got here in the poorest condition I've ever seen a tool. Pretty much everything in it needed work, but at least there was enough metal left. Oh, and it was an older second Gen so it had security Pentagram, rather than torx. So I had to buy two sets of security pentagram bits, at pretty penny at the local big box store. The saw was the worst - someone that thought a saw just needs to have some random pieces sticking out of it used a Dremel in an attempt to sharpen it. Looked more like Victorinox's scaling tool than actual saw. Took me 1 1/2 of hand work with trialgle files to make it look like a saw and work like a saw again. Plain edge was decent, just sharpened on something really coarse and needed some finer grits. Wanted the inside tools to be the bit exchanger and the scissors, as Ponchos, but it seems like the Wave handle is built differently. So when I moved the bit holder to the other side to make space for the scissors - the exchanger would not hide fully into the handle. I could grind whatever is in the way off but it was getting pretty late and I did not want to risk it so I just assembled it with the can opener instead. And I do use the opener - as a scraper, to poke things, as a package opener (I did sharpen it a bit), the wire stripper also gets used.... So it's staying in this configuration for now. First impressions are : using the screwdriver is so much more comfortable that way, the knife is more comfortable too but also needs a bit more attention closing because of the slim handle.  :)

Great job,  Davis  :woohoo: :like: :like:

My bit driver sticks up just a bit because I wanted the scissors in them. I tried to cut a small section out of the bit driver in my first one but didn't bother on the second one and it actually makes the bit driver more accessible  :tu:

Already used it a ton today and I like the tool set as is - the opener was used to unpack a tricycle for the toddler. The thing was in more pieces that I imagined and each one was packed separately in plastic   :o so it had a workout. The screwdriver was used a lot during assembly. No pictures as I got a bit frustrated with the work, sometimes I can swear that the producers of such things intentionally make the instructions vague or plain incorrect. And you DO need instructions, some of those things are pretty complicated.
Later I finally got to patch the front tire of my bicycle and took it around the block for a quick ride. Used the screwdriver on the new tool to adjust the brakes.
So far so good :climber:

Glad it has seen some great usage already :like:

My 2 favorite things of mine really is the screwdriver and the blade,  so you have the best things (in my view) left in :tu: :like:
