I love my power access, but have always worried about the lock bar springs being flimsy. Was not happy to see the breakage here.
If it helps, I have been using mine a fair bit and have seen no weakening weakening of the springs so far. :)

As far as I am aware it’s only
the PAD that had a weak spring  :think: :tu:

update
Checking the tracking for the PAD today
And the MT is now in the UK
At the moment it’s at Parcelforce Customs 
The tracking now says: Customs charges raised
Which means we have charged you 20% + handling charges
I don’t know how much I would have to pay yet
As I now have to wait for a letter with a reference number 
Before I can even pay the charges  or how much :rant:
Excellent start to my day today  :poh: :bnghd:

Update again
Customs is hopefully sorted out now
Thanks to Chris@SOG  :cheers:
I emailed Chris earlier and told him what has happened
And he is looking into rectifying the Charge
So far I am really impressed with the after service of SOG
As I have already said before all companies
Can have teething problems with new models
And it’s how they treat you when
things go wrong that’s important to me
So thanks again Chris for being so helpful  :cheers: :like:

I think the PowerAccess/Access Deluxe and PowerPint would be excellent tools with a few adjustments and a proper file.

Can’t wait to receive my replacement PAD now  :tu:

Planning any good photo opportunities for it yet?
From the pics you, Dutch_Tooler, some others, and I have posted; it is obvious the PAD is quite photogenic.  :)

Update
I finally got my replacement PAD today  :mail: :woohoo:
So far it’s all working as it should
But I will have a good play with the PAD today
And check everything works properly on this MT :tu:

I want to give a big thanks to Grant for
getting in touch with SOG about this problem  :cheers:

And to Chris@SOG for helping me
with the postage and sending me a replacement  :cheers:

As I have said before
All companies can have teething problems with a new model
it’s how they look after you when things go wrong that’s important
I can’t fault SOG for their customer services  :hatsoff:

Now I’m just interested to do the challenge on the 1st of June
And see how the PAD will hold up for the challenge

Although. Mine is rust free so far. But, I did give it several coats of drying silicone based oil. My Gerber's don't even have spots using that method. :tu:

Just in case you're interested in my take on the file, please see the last half of this post: https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,77168.msg1708279.html#msg1708279

I hope Chris is listening in? Thanks for considering.
