Digging up a really old thread to say a big thank you to you Bob. I get home from work tonight to find out that there is a leak from behind my toilet. It turns out both tank bolts are rusted to the point were I can't tighten them. I can't even take them off. After fiddling with them they start to leak worse. I drain the tank and try to take the bolts off but they are to far rusted.  My only option is to cut the bolts. The only metal saw I have in the house is the one for the Charge you gave me forever ago. It took some work but I cut through both bolts.  Gotta got to the hardware tomorrow morning to get new bolts. Anyway big thanks Bob. :salute:

What a great thread, can't believe I never thought of this before.  I'm going to make some of these this weekend.

Very nice.

Hey prime, glad the saw blade was able to help out! :) Are the teeth on yours getting dull at all? I've got a few leftover from the last batch, let me know if you need another. :)
In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

The teeth are a little dull but thankfully the screws on the toilet were made from brass so I was able to make my way through them with some work.

Maybe someone could move this to the mod squad section so it can live on a couple of more years?

And yes, J-sews, if you make more - let me know

Since it's been in this thread since 2006, I see no point in moving it now..

I'm guessing there was no mod section in 2006. When I got here I studied the mod section in depth, one of the first things I did was sort by most popular threads. If this had been in the mod section, I would have found it then :P

I actually almost posted a "show off your every day use toothbrush" thread a couple of weeks back when I got this fancy new toothbrush that vibrates. It's not an electric toothbrush as you'd think of one, it's a normal sized toothbrush with an AAA battery and small vibrator, suspension on the brush and all sorts of fancy stuff. My new razor uses a similar system.

Bob and I discussed producing a number of these for sale to members, and it is indeed a possibility.

I made the one in my avatar a few days ago.  $2 saw blade + dremel + cutting wheel + chainsaw sharpener = cheap and cheerful fun.  Works pretty well, too.  The solid side panels on the Charge might be sturdier in the long run than my Wave, though.
Half-ass done wholeheartedly!

Not meant to troll the thread, but what Dremel did you use? Seen Dremel has a lot of different models out compared to the old black one I used to have. Been considering buying a new one.

The one I used for this was actually my wife's Black and Decker Wizard, so not a real Dremel.  I'm not sure they even make it any more, came in a set with a Mouse mini sander.  Not a bad one at all, variable speed and a good chuck.

Get either the 300 or 4000. 4000 is the fancy version, get that one if you can afford it. The 300 is the "normal" one. Don't get any of the battery powered ones, the engraver, the stylus or any of that. Also get a flex shaft attachement, that is a must have on a Dremel

I would love a wood and metal or an entire set. Longer or shorter ones are fine.

Think he could make an attachable awl to fit there too? That would solve a huge problem with awls on the Charge & Wave. Have an elongated thread-bore too. This way the awl can be used pushing, pulling, and moderate twisting.

The large bit driver versions are only good for twisting and pushing. Pulling the awls get pulled out of the bit driver, this useless for emergency sewing needs.

It's been done, but damned if I can find a thread about it other than mentioning Chaka from EDCForums (not Chako) was working on selling some awls made from S30V but they got binned when his company was hit by layoffs.  I *know* someone has a working example of this type of mod, but I can't find it :/

You shouldn't be quite so subtle around here.  I mean, I know you are trying to tell me something but I'll be damned if I know what it is....

Oh, the ?
Posted the YouTube video on the Leatherman FB page, it drew attention. Maybe y'all will get more memberships going, for the discount.  :D

Leatherman is giving away a MUT tomorrow morning for naming ideas. <-- Changed the wording.

I'm a slacker, only in that I have far less than it may appear.
