    I finally bought a ST300 for the jaws to put on my surge. My question is do i need to remove the blade lock for the jaws to fit?

    Yup, you'll need to break them off. Wear gloves and grab each tang with the super tool on the surge and pull back till it snaps off. Go slow, you don't want to pop that rivet off.

    If you don't, the extra shoulders on the ST300 head will get caught on them and you won't be able to completely close.

    I'll be doing another super surge/bush craft mod so I'll be doing the same soon :)

    Wouldn't it be easier to drill the rivet out?

    Nope, it's means having to put one back in and finding the right spacer to eat up the slack.

    Seriously, it'll take you 3 mins to break them off if you go slow.

    Oh believe me i have a dozen dental picks and use them extensively! When i slide the head onto the handle it pushes the washer out...... angry.

    You can skip the washers on the plier head if you squish the handles a bit. It'll close up the gap.

    I finally got all the copper washers in. That sucked it took me like two hours.

    Any suggestions for a tool to sneak into here next to the fine screw driver?

    I got some insider info this morning from a leatherman distributer in china that leatherman will make the surge with st300 jaws available in January.

    Hmm. I'll be interested to see how they solved the blade lock pin issue.

    baja820 Loaded Pockets

    It seems to me if they made the handle cavity slightly deeper it would fit no prob.

    You have to remember that means two possibly 4 major tooling changes. The die to cut the sheet, the die to bend the inside and the die to bend the outside slots. Possibly more. :D
