Sure, thanks! This mod is inspired by Maxlvledc who should take the credit.  https://youtu.be/COZCQdfvK5g.  Not exactly the same mod but similar. I happen to have a spare TTi which I rarely use these days so decided to carry out this mod after watching his vid. It is a straight forward mod which is completely reversible. I am very happy with how it turned out.

The frame is strong enough and no spacer required. I just removed the plier head, reinstalled the blade and saw and everything locks into place. It is a very straight forward mod. I like this mod as it allows me to pick & choose the implements I like and it is completely reversible.

PS. can someone please show me how to upload photos, my photos keep appearing twice on my post.

Great mod, roamingcat :tu: :like: I love the half tools and love seeing them but Maxlvledc actually got his idea from MTO because this mod was being done by other members when he was first a member here ;) and perhaps before he was a member :think: He mostly always forgets to credit MTO for his info and ideas :facepalm:

I have this one from November 2018 ( I think someone had done before me but I forget who) :think:



and my most recent iteration of it :tu:

Thanks Poncho for this information :like:. Good to know and  :iagree: MTO is a wealth of information and great ideas thats why I keep coming back! Your mod looks really good and your photoshot just as good :like:. I see you also opted for the blade+scissors+bit exchanger combo :drink:. I was undecided about the saw or the file but for the purpose of my hiking trails went with the saw. But I know I can easily swap for the file or serrated hook anytime should the need arises.

If I was using one in the woods more I might have opted for a saw as well :tu: I use a file more for work and it suits me better but that is the point of modding 8) making a tool that suits ones self :like:

If you can track a longer bit down, I would definitely suggest it, it is almost a game changer with the bit driver :drool:  It makes it as good as a regular screwdriver for me :woohoo:

Thanks again Poncho. Just noticed from your photo that you opted for the longer bit from the MUT  :like:. The longer reach makes the tool more usable and it fits the half frame perfectly. Thank you for this great idea which I may borrow with your permission!

thx all :)
I'll try to find a tube that can fit inside blades holes and outside back pivot to use all the tools; might not be that simple

I’ve always wondered, how does a bit driver come in handy while hiking?

Probably depends on what type of gear you carry and if you have to fix anything or not :cheers:
