Thanks guys.  Any ideas are appreciated.  :hatsoff:

I have bought other multitools as gifts, and a couple of the larger 600s, but i really prefer the smaller MP400.  I may just have to buy a new one, or maybe a used one, although i have no idea why anyone would part with one.  I was really surprised that Gerber doesn't sell replacement parts and apparently neither does anyone else.

The saw on mine came from a Gerber Suspension - it's only short but works well in a pinch

Been looking for the 1/4" adaptor for my '400 for ages now and this morning it turned up in my drill box. Phew.

Very nice find Mags!
That kind of things happen to me from times to times.

The MP400 with adapter is a great improvement.

Lol. I'm putting it down to a senior moment  :D
Any ideas on how to attach it to something so it doesn't go missing again?

Great pictures hevy; liking a lot your organizers! :drool:

Magentus, could it work in your case adding a pocket clip from a mech pencil, or from a pen?
Also, how 'bout an elastic band with a "pocket", where you would put the adapter in and then place the band around the tool?
Or a small magnet in your sheath and attach the adapter to it?

 :think: :dunno: :think:

It's more a "Fallout - New Vegas" style. Mags.
It's part of my work equipment.

Guys, kicking around picking up either another 400 or a 600.  I know this is the 400 thread, but I'm looking for your opinion.

My two cents.
The 400 is awesome, mags and a bunch of other peeps around here will back that up.
That said I would go the 600 blunt nose every time.
I don't have a 400 here anymore to really double check but recall the handles wedging slightly when flick deploying.
The 600 doesn't do that.
If you aren't looking at blunt nose then I would also suggest the center drive.
So wish they made a blunt nose center drive.

Barry Barry Barry, you know the answer already.......

MTO law states you must get both.

But if you can only have one, then I can't recommend the 400 enough  :pok: Been using mine daily at work for a few years now with no complaints.

Zoids 600 is amazing though so keep an open mind. You're really best off getting both  :ahhh :rofl:

Barry, I agree with Mags.
Here on MTo we should get both.
But, If only one could be choose, the MP400 is the answer.

Yes indeed, enablers all!  :cheers:. I'll second what you said about a blunt nose Center Drive Zoidberg.  I've had a Center Drive for a few years and they're tough tools.  I'm going to pick them both up.  Right now Gerber seems low on both, but I'm hoping things improve shortly.  I'll post them when I get them!

While we all wait for Barry, here are a couple of pics of my '400 within the context of my work tool kit. I find that these beautys can cope with a lot of the minor maintenance tasks I undertake at work and can easily be carried on my work belt

Very nice knife Mags!
You paired your MP400 with a very capable tool kit.

Carrying the newest iteration of my modded MP400. I rounded all corners to make it more suitable for pocket carry, and less for pocket destroying. Also shortened the tip and reprofiled it to be more blunt nose. The BO was scratched in several spots, so i stripped some of it to make it more uniform.
