Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Let's not pat Poncho too much on the back. I asked for brownies from him, but he refused  >:(
No doubt he scarfed the rest of them down while reading my request to send some to me  :rant:
Keep that in mind about Poncho. He may give away a really nice MT, but he will keep the good stuff to himself  :'(

Thanks to Poncho, I now have a PT-510 (and some MTO swag) to add to my electrical MT and knife collection:

I ended up buying the Knipex through my work account
Those are great. I have them (13 02 160) along with the normal electical tools (side cutters, wire strippers, needle nose pliers) in my electric toolkit. But most of the time I grab just them to have everything in one simple tool. You can do most of the normal tasks (for example wiring outlets) with them and a screwdriver with no problems. If there are problems, I use the normal tools. Normally I have everything with me in my toolkit.

Only thing I can not tell is the compatibility with standards in America. Those differ much compared to standards in Germany and Europe.

I really like using Klein's hybrid pliers for installing outlets and switches:

I just found out about these Crescent flip pliers. A sales rep let me look at a pair Tuesday evening, and they seemed to be decent to me.

Those do look pretty handy...and I could use a new wire stripper.
USN 2000-2006

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

These Milwaukee 7-in-1 hybrid pliers/wire strippers are on sale at Home Depot, and I can highly recommend them.

 :iagree: I don't strip wire much but the Crescent and Milwaukee ones both look pretty good :cheers: leaning towards the Milwaukee ones though :think: I usually only fix extension cords and the like, nothing to electrical for me as I value my life and don't deal with things that might could potentially have power on them :ahhh :D

The crescent pliers are pretty neat. We’re in need of new dedicated wire strippers. I think ours are craftsmen. I know we bought them at Sears over a decade ago and they are quite cumbersome to use. Those Milwaukee ones look comfortable and would handle all small guage wire I work with.

also not going anywhere near live wire, all my high voltage controlled equipment can be unplugged!

That is a sweet trio, took me forever to find the PT-510 and complete my trio a few years back.  :tu:

Thanks, pa  :cheers:

I can thank Poncho for the PT-510. He had an unused one that he sent to me. And I can thank him for helping me with the PT-540. It is in fine shape except that the Phillips driver is broken. He happens to have had an old SOG Phillips driver that he is sending to me  :tu:

Thanks, Dan  :cheers:

I know of at least 4 of them that have been sold in markets outside of the US. Chako has one that was sold by MasterCraft in Canada a few years ago. A tool company in Australia whose name escapes me at the moment used to sell one. Workpro sells one at the moment in Asia. And Sheffield has two different color varieties that they sold. I now have the version with green and black accents (see the tool at the rear left of my photo). There is one with red and black accents that was sold in Europe (resembles the tool next to the Sheffield in my photo).

I don't know if any of those will ever fall into my clutches  :dunno:
