Leatherman: Interchanging Implements
« on: October 09, 2008, 03:52:20 AM »
I don't know if anyone has ask this before but...

Does anyone have a sort of list thing of what tools' implements will fit in each other? =(

This is going to be somewhat of a headache. Here's what will fit and work, but it is dependent on how the tools are arranged (i.e. the scissors cannot be next to the medium flathead since it gets caught and is problematic during open/close.)

1.)Full-size tools (Kick, Fuse, Blast, Wave, Charge):

+All the drivers and the scissors will interchange with no modifications between all models.
+The file and the saw from the Blast will fit the Fuse with no modifications and will fit the Kick with a small reduction of material at the tang stop. *Be aware that the file appears to have gotten thicker recently so addition to the Kick may not function very well. (need more information on this but it was a problem I ran into on my BO KickMod)
+The saw, file and knife blades from the Charge will interchange with those on the Wave.

2.)Plus-size tools (Core, Surge):
+The drivers on the Surge and Core will interchange.
+Long implements (file/saw/knives) will not.
? not sure about the Core awl.

Oddballs I don't know about:

? The Crunch. I assume it has the same locking dimensions as the Blast which means it will interchange with the modern tools; but I don't know for sure.
? The Pruning tools.

Now, in regards to the retired tools; I don't know yet but I can take a peek tomorrow. I'm thinking PST/II/Pulse implements transplanted to the Kick/Fuse/Blast and the SuperTool implements transplanted to the Core/Surge. I have a feeling their implements will work in the modern tools but I don't know for sure.

I'm especially interested in the older retired models. :D

I have the disassembly tools and I'll have time tomorrow so I'll mess around and see. I can do the PST/II tools into the Kick/Blast chassis but won't be able to experiment with the larger tools since I don't have them here. Stayed tuned.

 :)

P.S. I'd love to have an extra saw to put into a PST. Make it sort of a "Farmer PST."

Thanks for putting in the time, you spoony bard you. :D

No really, I am grateful. And yes, I think I'd love a PST or PST II for my woodsman multitool. It just needs the PST awl and the PST II diamond file and a real woodsaw... but it would be nice in a kick chasis too, I think.

I wonder if I could get the Surge awl into the PST?

That would be good times!

Here's what I found out: PST/II parts (including the pliers) will not interchange with post-2004 tools. The result is below:

Blast tools in a PST: The tools fit and can be put into the chassis but if they were to be used they would stress the locking/slipjoint mechanism and probably lead to breakage in short order.


PST file in a Kick:


Now, in regards to the Pulse/Supertools; I am inclined to believe that PST/Pulse tools will interchange but not Pulse/Modern tools. I think the Core/Surge interchanged with the Supertools is out too. Then again, I have been wrong before. 



Bonus: SOG Saw in a Blast:

The old PST file won't fit. The new Blast file will (depending on the thickness, mine could have been a one-of but it's hard to tell if Leatherman has changed the width overall.)  :)

Me too. I was actually excited about a PST with a saw

I believe that a Bear Jaw saw would work ::)

I put the diamond file of my PST II into my Bear Jaws ( Crescent Toolzall Mantenance Pro) and it fit perfectly :cheers:
so I don't see why the saw from it would fit into the PST :)

Don't forget about the Crunch short Serrated blade & Combination File/Flat head.

I reckon either of those (the latter especially) would be great in tools that might not have the space for the long file/serrated blades!

Both of those implements implements would be tool long to use in any of the full-size tool "short" positions.

So there.  :P

Nope, that won't fit either, it's about a half-inch too long. I also think the Mini-tool implements are Mini-tool specific and won't transfer to the PST due to the differences in the flatsprings and tang design.

 :ahhh

Actually I enjoyed that. Might use it myself someday. Any copyrights I need to be aware of?
