    Always happy to help out good people! Boxed em up tonight, will send them Saturday morning (soonest I can get to the Post Office). Can't guarantee a Pre-Christmas delivery though.. Sorry. :)

    And the King title is just the guys giving me a hard time, it's all in good fun but I am far from anything special.

    Wingmans are still at like $29 here, and I haven't seen the cheap sidekick ones yet. Gonna check a day or two before 25th tho

    These were just the Sidekick. I have not seen that gift pack. I will keep an eye out though. That would be even better at $18.

    The S30V Charge/Wave Blade showed up today from TxToolCrafters!! Only two days late, but that's expected with Christmas shipping. I can see why the other folks are drilling out the pivot hole as there is very little room for a bushing in the original hole after testing the pivot pin from the Sidekick. I have a feeling though that I may have a small enough bushing which would eliminate the need to drill the S30V blade. We will see. I will post some blow by blow pics later in my thread (and link it here) of the mod.

    On a hunch, and even though I have absolutely no use for them I went to the big box tool store & snagged the last 2 sidekicks at marked down from $29 to $18
    I wish it would have been wingmans but I won't be choosy, I just have no use for a saw. Modded sidekick for me now! The other three (roll eyes) I have will be backup to the backup and in various toolboxes

    Just an FWI, I'm sure it isn't the case at every store, but my local place that has them for $18 still has a fair amount of them for sale as of this morning.

    Mine too.. I am hoping they drop the price again to clear them out as mine doesn't normally carry the Sidekick, just the Wingman.

    (Cancel this question, I see you have to break the spring thing & rivet holding it in, out, as I updated below)

    Ok waaaiiit a minute. How are your Phillips Flat & Scissors opening all the way on the sidekick mods?
    Mine won't :(

    and lastly, what to do if one doesn't have a spare pair of scissors? Find thicker washer? I really wish I had some scissors for it now

    Oh, I think I see the answer to the tools not closing problem, you have to break that piece out?[​IMG]

    I think I just need to go buy a Wingman to do this to. Really want the blister pack opener & scissors instead of the serrated blade
