This one is a bit milder. It’s my first ever multitool. A MP600 pro scout I snagged on eBay for $14. I’ve since made it bladeless and swapped in the missing large flat driver. Also turned the end of the file into a gasket scraper. No clip on this one yet either, but it’ll have one eventually. Charles.
Anyone got a line on inexpensive carbide cutters? I need one for this gem. Charles.
Hope you like it as I do mine; it's a workhorse of a tool, that can withstand abuse (albeit the replaceable cutters which tend to selfdestroy at the least provocation, and the medium flat driver located at the tip of the bottle opener). Its jaws open wider than most and you'll still be able to hold the handles one handed. Also, unlike the Leatherman Rebar Knifeless, it is a true knifeless as you can remove the Remgrit or replacement blade installed and carry it to places where even a saw blade is a no-go. Last-but-not-least, the flicking deployment; a great one-handed pliers deployment with cool fidget factor!
The link to the little machine shop inserts is the correct one ( as noted here https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,84840.0.html) but, if you don't mind me asking, why take the tools out just to have the pliers head; you will be defeating the purpose of a multi tool. Wouldn't you be better off having dedicated pliers?,they'll be stronger and cheaper (anyway, just MHHO).
i also use the lm adapter. It fits perfectly and i have 2 of those anyway. Tried it, it was like a glove, no need to buy something else. On the other hand, i took a chance on the cutters. They've cut a wire that i had doubts upon, without chipping or breaking. So, they're not completely trash at all. Harder/thicker... i'm not sure i'll use a mt anyway (toolbelt for actual work). It was a 2mm steel wire. Not very hardened but by no means soft as butter. Still can't upload photos, so... you'll have to take my word for it. The other mt's i've tested on harder stuff in order to see if they can do the job. Warranty might be fine, but if you have only one tool and need to do something and that tool breaks, warranty is just a meaningless word at that point
I'm waiting for them to have it in stock again. Insurance, if i break the originals. And now after i played a little it is definitely only the blade, the part that i'm changing. But not entirely. I want to make an awl/reamer/punch out of it.
[/b]Now this sounds like a great idea!
