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!

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.

Like the idea with the gasket scraper on the file. Will do that too once mine arrives!  :tu:

Anyone got a line on inexpensive carbide cutters? I need one for this gem.

Charles.

I am looking into those atm, as I know that the Gerber ones are not the best. I found some, that should fit into the slots. They are not cheap, but I hope that they will be way more durable. Unfortunately I don‘t have a lot of experience with carbide cutters, so it‘s only a guess.
According to the website they are made for use on cast iron, stainless steel, steel, and Ti.

I see you have the LM bit kit in a lot of your photos. Any reason you use that over the Gerber one?

I find the Leatherman more compact, and more versatile: with a variety of bits to choose from (I also have the 2-card bit kit for my Wave) I can exchange bits as needed between the sets and still keep it relatively slim; I can carry up to 14 "drivers" (7 bits) versus 9 on the Gerber's. It also allows me to use regular bits when needed (which I use when torque is required, such as on "stuck"/ rusted bolts or screws), since the LM's tend to be more maleable (softer) and can deform if over-torqued. Mind you, I use the Leatherman bits in 90% of the time so, they're not flimsy or weak, just not everyday-for-work bits ( for that, I use dedicated bit driver kits; Wera or in my case). Besides, they fit on the Gerbers pretty well. I do have a Gerber Tool Kit ( and a pair of generic ones; these are with the ss MP600's), but prefer the LM versatility.   :tu:

Thanks for your answer, that makes sense  :hatsoff: Does the LM version work right away, or does it have to be modified?

That's the beauty, just plug-and-play! :like:

 And vice versa; the Gerber will work on Rebar/Fuse/Super Tool's phillips driver (and so will do Ganzo's; choices, choices).  :tu:

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  :D

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'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.

Sorry pal, Gerber considers the replaceable cutters as consumables and, altgough even the package states the "lifetime warranty" of Gerber products,  it will be nil. Glad you're getting an extra pair 'cause, although I've been able able to cut hanger wire with them, I chipped one of the cutters when they suddenly closed on each other while pulling a nail. So, just waiting on them to ... :oops:

Arrived today  :mail:


Like that BO  :)

The jigsaw blades came in as well. The metal ones work with no issues. The wood ones had a thicker shank  :think:, so I took them to the belt sander. They work now as well  :tu:


I made a small sleeve out of shrink tube and duct tape, so that I can carry the additional jigsaw blades in the same pouch with the tool without scratching it.


Really happy with the MP600 :cheers:

Yey, new toys... ehrrr .... tools; yeah, that's it new tools!  :woohoo: :tu:

May I also suggest making "sheaths" with slurpee/ frosty/ freezes large straws? Just cut to size, seal ends with a lighter, and open a slit for them to fit in.

Glad you like it, and hope it serves you well; all of mines have done so far!

Sorry for the crappy photo.

My first MP600. And I must say, I'm very happy with it!

Although I had made a PE blade for my Bladeless, I was unhappy with the results. So, I finally had some time for myself and this is the result; much better for the "heavy duty stuff" that I'll impart to it, such as fruit peeling and letter opening. :rofl: :rofl:
Pretty happy with the results and, as usual, critiques and suggestions welcomed! :tu:
Edit- added a picture of "how it all started"; for anyone interested. Done with a Dremel using a reinforced cutting disc, tungsten cutter, and diamond bit.
