In about 5 hours, we honor a LM legend!

Well maybe not a legend, maybe most misunderstood LM.🤪 :cheers:

Found this  thread about our lovely OHT announcing its departure from LTG catalog.

Worth the read less than one page of contributions.

https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,91403.0.html

Enjoy

Congratulations to everyone in this New Year and to "The Five 'T-ers", whose adventures I'm eager to follow as I did for the " 600 Challengers"!; since I always stood on the fence on getting one, I'd like to see how it compares to the MP's. :cheers:

Thank you for the send off Juan!

First, it is totally my opinion, the MP series and OHT only compare by the fact that you can deploy the pliers with a FIRM FLICK of the wrist.

The MP models require you to extend the pliers each time you want to use any implement, and again to put it away.
AWL the implements on the OHT are available while the pliers are tucked inside the handles. 🌹

I also like that I can lock the pliers into the head, to avoid it slipping out while using or carrying the tool.

And, a third feature I enjoy, is the spring loaded plier head. My hands experience arthritis during temperature swings and cold.  So this annoyance to some is a comfort feature to this oldster. ☺️
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Day 1

A display case mounting is on the agenda today.  It is heavy and requires 4 brackets mounted to the wall, each requiring 2 wall inserts (8 total), with 2 Phillip screws to hold each bracket.

The OHT Phillips I has the call.🤨

 Great explanation on the OHT LC. I liked that you clearly stated what works well for you. Also, great way to start the challenge out with a project.  :woohoo:

Barry, great to see one of your favorite tools from the OHT.

You are welcome too toss in as many as you wish.

I was actually thinking you would join us on the start of the year adventure!😜.    But, then most likely not a challenge enough for a Tennessean Tool junkie as you are!

Oh my!  I said that loud enough to be heard☺️

Luv the Coyote OHT Barry! 🥰

Was tempted so many times… had to stay strong and allow the BO version carry me forward.


The last time this challenge was completed, November 2019, referred to as the “BONECHRUSHER”  https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,82992.0.html
Another good read if interested.    Still curious about Rapid Ray😢.  Helluv a cheerleader during that challenge.

It's actually a split option LC.  BO on one side and Coyote in the reverse.  Goes either way with the mood of the day  :rofl:
I wonder about Ray too.

Awesome start LC and Barry  :woohoo:

The rescue tool is nice indeed  :tu:
I'm also wondering about Rapid Ray  :-\


Day 01
The OHT's PE blade helped with a 18650 Lion battery holder mod removing some excess glue.
It's a DC DC step up converter glued on the side to provide a constant 4.5V for the replacement LED E10 bulb (the 18560 only has 4.2 - 3.2 V ish by it's own).
Although it fits in snuggly into the case I have added some magnets to secure it in place.
A fun little project to make this 80 year old flashlight more useful  :P

Thanks, LC, for the explanation; If I only knew or would've guessed it would indeed help ease my arthritic hands...! :facepalm: ... just that by itself makes it a winner. Too bad there are none in the bay, in coyote tan ATM, BUT I will keep on the look out.  :hatsoff: :cheers:

Great start; good action photos, particularly of your lamp work Mc Stitchy! :2tu:

Also missing Rapid Ray; last I saw he was moving out of state. Hope all is well with him.

Last I spoke with him, he was living in Orlando. FL.

He was retired, and in the spring each year he would return to his employer, in Atlanta and assist with doing spring inspections and cleaning of roof top air conditioning units.  Maybe March through May.
If memory  serves me right, it was the start of COVID lock down he was in route to Georgia for his spring gig.  And completed the gig 5/2020!  He shared several pictures of the OHT I gifted him, even a few slicing apples for snacks.

McStitchy, what a great mod to make your old flashlight useful. Really like the resourcefulness. Glad you got the OHT to give you a hand.

That was the last time I heard from him too.  He kept in touch after I gifted him a Vic Woodsman and then early 2020 I never heard anything more. 
Last I spoke with him, he was living in Orlando. FL.
