(Image removed from quote.)I made this for my former apprentice and friend. He is 32 years my junior, but we get along very well. He has talked me into going to a concert with him, and he is buying the tickets. This is how I am paying him back.I asked him what he thought would make a near perfect MT for an electrician. I used his comments as a guide, but also included a couple of things that I knew would be useful. Personally, I would replace the serrated blade/flat head screwdriver with the driver from a Center Drive, but I neither had one nor wanted to buy one in order to rob the driver.He thinks it looks great, but I don't think he suspects I am giving it to him
What concert you going to don't get into any trouble
I made a few changes. I was able to buy a Center Drive cheap enough to strip for parts, so I took the bit driver and the prybar and put them in the Surge.(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
Thanks guys I have to admit, there is a part of me that wants to keep it But yes, I am going to give it to him today.
For the black blade and saw, did you acid etch the stainless ones or you bought the black version? The blacks are so consistent with the rest of the BO tools. Looks just like it came from the factory.
That is incredibly cool Adam, wow Great story too, you’re mate’s going to be blown away
I used stainless steel blackener for the finish. The Surge was already BO, but much of the finish had worn off. So, I used the blackener on the handles, plier head, and all of the tools. That is why the finish looks fairly consistent.
