Looks like a good start and warm up to get a feel for it! Nice pics too!I'll be watching from the sidelines to see how yours holds up.
interesting read and most beautiful pics! Do you use your phone for them ?The tool seems really nice from the outside and I'll follow with interest to see if it deliverssad for the sheath, an element as important as the tool it carries IMO
I appreciate the info as I have been thinking about getting one.Keep posting and I will keep reading.
All sounding very good gents. Clown; I'm with you on sprung pliers though, the times they are a real advantage are hugely outweighed by the times they are a PITA.
Those are the two things I was worried about as it is not a heavy looking tool.Keep the info coming.

Was thinking about getting one of these so wondered how they were holding up.I like the idea of the "side cutter"pliers and the bit driver but not so sure on the spring action pliers!I would appreciate any updates that would sway me one way or the other....... Thanks..
