It works well for pulling, but I haven't tried it on walnuts.  I don't think it would be large enough.  A 110 on the other hand...
Barry, that's an interesting use, I would love to give this a try when I need it to crack some walnuts open...

Accessories day for me: tweezers to lift a moth, unfortunately dead.  Toothpick to help with getting a travel cup of coffee to flow better ☕️

Day 14

Package opening.

Inside was a 2019 Limited Edition Gingerbread Love Classic SD.

Mrs. P and I have an older Cocker Spaniel and his favorite toy is a stuffed gingerbread man so I couldn't resist when I saw this one on eBay.

I really appreciate the larger size of the 74mm scissors.  :tu:

( reminds me that I wish Vic would bring back the 84mm scissors.... )
It is funny you say that, because I don’t notice much difference between 74 and 58mm scissors in use.  It does seem a little easier gripping due to bigger handle but in actual cutting I don’t notice much difference.

Day 14

The Classic helped remove a couple small screws holding the carabiner on my cup


It also helped open a snack bar and a container of mints.

Maybe it is the larger 'handles' on the 74mm scissors that I like, but I also think I find the larger size to be a bit handier at times. Might not be true. Those Classic scissors are pretty darned capable.  :tu:

Lots of good uses, everyone.
The little guys are going strong.

Day 14.
Granddad's work is never done.
The granddaughters "phone" needed new batteries.
Too bad I can't simply do this with my phone.

Great work everyone! We’re half way there!  :woohoo:

Day 15

Used the scissors on my Executive to cut twine to support my tomatoes which at long last are putting some growth on - they were looking pretty miserable during May and I did wonder if they would survive….

Executive for me too today. Although I think this sandwich might be a bet out of its weight class…

My kind of parcel my friend!!  :like: :like:

For Day 15, I swapped out for the mighty Minichamp.  For illustrative purposes, I wanted to show the different ways that the cuticle pusher would come in handy.  One way is as a fine straight edge screwdriver.

Can't believe we are already at the half way point, time flies!  Used the mini pry tool to help open the battery compartment on the digital thermometer.

I might be wrong, but you could very well be the first MTOer getting a Classic for the dog, very cool! :tu:

Same here, and I do think the larger scissor size on 91mm encourage more use in my case.  Since a smaller scissors cut slower, I seem to use it less often than when I am with a 91mm scissors.

Nice 28S!

Day 15
For today, Orange Alox with a Sears calculator dating from 1974, the same year the iconic Sears Tower officially opened in Chicago and surpassed the WTC as the world's tallest building (you can spot the tower on the calculator). Renamed in 2009 Willis Tower and Sears is of course another story  :facepalm:

Opening mail at work. I definitely appreciate that the Classic is unobtrusive.

Same here. I tend to use the scissors when I feel that they would speed up the work compared to tearing or cutting... and the smaller scissors don’t always do so.  Still, some delicate tasks require scissors instead of a knife
