Speaking of modded Center Drives, here's mine.  I replaced the serrated blade and awl with a u-shank holder from an MP600 Pro Scout. I also cut down one of the longer saw blades so that it fits in the CD. (they cut easily with a dremel and a cutoff wheel). I drilled and tapped holes and installed a titanium clip made for a Zero Tolerance knife. Finally, I made a custom lanyard using an old RCA connector I had lying around. I'm into hifi audio and I thought this was cool. It's attached with a quick-release so I can remove it when I use the CD as a screwdriver. (not really necessary, but if I'm screwing a lot then I'll remove it)

Could that Leatherman saw holder be modded into a CenterDrive, do you think?

Charles.

It could however just off the top of my head:

the LM pivot is larger
to clear the lock mech the surrounds might require thinning or it will push upwards which leads to...
likely need to arrange tools in the opposite handle for clearance
and lastly even with the holder fitted adding a saw or file etc will probably make it too long to store in the handle

You misunderstand. I would replace the locking blade with the saw and make it a bladeless multi tool. The remgrit holder would go back in my pro scout.

Perhaps even a sawzall blade would fit that large pivot instead of the t shank.

I did, sorry. I'm an idiot. Okay, let me try again:

liner lock angle will need changing over
the length might still be an issue

Well I’m pretty happy with my CD at the moment. I do use the knife far more than I ever did with my MP600, so maybe I’ll keep it as it is for a while.

What did you get the blade holder out of, in case I change my mind?

I was talking about the surge blade exchanger, same as in HG's post.

That is a really sweet mod!

Not my own picture but wanted to share it with you guys. I know the wave/charge platform is appreciated here but most of the time people miss an awl. The Dutch police gave the Leatherman seen in the picture. A wave plus with guthook serrated knife and a awl.

Recently (yesterday) got a MP600 Pro Scout in Camo, ... but I didn't like Camo, nor the partially serrated blade!

so here is a chimera between a standard black MP600 (with wire cutters) and this MP600 Pro Scout :

it features
  • the tool load out of the MP600 Pro Scout -but mostly taken from the black MP600 for the identical ones-, including scissors and U-Shank blade holder
  • and the wire cutters of the MP600 -actually that's the body and head of the black MP600-

and obvioulsy, to have both scissors and blade holder, I needed to give up the larger flat screwdriver (and secondary blade that I didn't need, as I always have a SAK or knife of some kind in my pocket)

Here is my modified suspension NXT.

I replaced the awl with the saw from a suspension. I also ground the inside of the handles for more clearance, and was able to add a fourth thin tool - the eyeglass driver, using thin washers from an MP600. Without grinding the inside of the handles you can still do the mod, you just can’t have ANY washers in there. I didn’t like that at all.

I removed the plastic bits before grinding, which was really easy. I also took the opportunity to bend and straighten the handle so it lines up correctly with the other side. Overall the tool is much better now. Better toolset, even without an awl. I often need an eyeglass driver. I occasionally need an awl too, but this one is kinda crappy to begin with, and I think the blade does near as good a job as the awl in making a hole.

While I was playing around I fit some suspension tools in a spare mp400 body, and ended up with two long tools in one handle. Normally impossible, but the eyeglass driver is thin enough to make it happen. And the long 2.5D suspension driver actually seems pretty “right” in the lighter duty MP400 tool.  Using these two suspension tools definitely allows a larger tool load out. The other handle can have scissors or a suspension saw, then a load of flat drivers, for a nicely equipped bladeless tool.

Tool Name: Style bladeless
Basis: Leatherman style CS
Aim: make it bladeless, add more useful (to me) functions
Mods: Replaced the knife blade by a Gerber Dime package opener and a glasses screwdriver

Not a very involved mod, I just reprofiled a Gerber Dime package opener to make it work in the Style, and since the blade housing is quite deep I managed to stack a glasses screwdriver (from a cheap Squirt clone) next to it.
