I think the set is called MUT bit set? Anyway, when I added a bit holder to the Rebar, it naturally needed a bit by default. I’m using the philips - flat small bit by default. Then I thought about the recessed screws or doorknob screws so I figured I needed longer bits so I used the 2.5inch philips + flat bit.

I was fooling around with magnets from a cellphone accessory I previously opened up. It so happens that they’re slim enough to hide behind an LM bit. I think they’re quite strong too.

The picture has 2 magnets under the long bit with the philips head wedged under the bit on the empty space between the 2 magnets. Seems like I don’t need glue or sticky tape to keep the bit on the tool.

Great idea with the magnets :salute: hope they hold the bits well :tu:

The long bits are excellent additions to any kit :woohoo: :like:

Newbie to this forum here, but not to Leatherman!

These are awesome, no idea why Leatherman stopped producing them - do you know where to get these (I enquired on the Leatherman site a while ago)?

Thanks!

Ebay would be your best bet :salute:

They are not cheap anymore though and go for a pretty high price usually  :facepalm:

Hopefully you luck out and find one for a reasonable price :cheers:

Also, welcome to  :MTO:  :cheers:

Here’s something for the accessories. Getting old(er) means my eyes aren’t what they used to be. I decided to make the label on the bits a bit more visible. I shaded it with a silver sharpie then wiped the surface leaving the sunken portions colored. Works well so far in that it hasn’t faded yet.

These days flatheads and philips in your MT just doesn’t cut it anymore. Everything from bed frames to cabinets to toys have these hex, torx, 3-star, etc screws on them. Hence the need for flexibility.  Even if it’s just like USD3, as long as it’ll get the job safely, I’m good with it.

 :think:

Am I doing this right?

Does it only go this deep?

How come the other one goes in deeper?

Does it matter how deep it goes as long as it performs?

Can I ask for a comparison with your ST300 please?

Just to lend an extra helping hand; I can see some slight variations when installed in my Rebars but, they remain mostly constant in depth when "switched around". My guess is slight differences between Phillips driver manufacturing (from top- down: ST300- code 1B, SS Rebar/Knifeless- 2C, SS Rebar-2E, BO Rebar- 2C)

.

On the ST300, it only goes in up to the first "line" of the casted driver bit.

Thanks Poncho!

My piece must have a tolerance thing with the bit or the driver head since both are relatively new. 

I tried to go as deep as that and I ended up using a Crunch to remove the bid adapter from the ST300 driver.  I was grunting and squeezing with the Rebar but to no avail. Yeah, after all this time there are still sharp edges on my Rebar.  :whistle:

Yes, my ST300 is exactly like that.  :hatsoff:

I guess I never really paid much attention to the bit adapter since I replace the philips of my Rebar to a bit holder.

Awesome pics, Juan :o I definitely need to add a BO Bit Adapter to my arsenal :ahhh :drool: :like:

 I am sure that tolerances of both the adapters and the Phillips drivers will vary to a degree :salute: Had not really thought about it until you posted that, Juan :tu:

You might try some sandpaper or perhaps a diamond file to knock the edges down some :tu:

The bit kit and sight adjuster/extender ride with me on my sheath, and I also carry a ratchet extender in my pocket.

May I present to you, my Fix-A-Lot Kit. The thing weighs about 5 pounds, so it lives on my desk during the day and in my car the rest of the time. Gotta say, I’m surprised by how strong the Skinth™ Solutions CatchAll is. As you can see, I have a full size bit set and a full 1/4” socket set in there…along with some extensions and converters. Plus other goodies.

On my belt I carry a Hahn Tactical Solutions kydex sheath with my Charge + TTi, a bit extender and Leatherman bit kit.

Let me know what y’all think! Feel free to ask questions!
