    Lets move this off the thread, but the short answer is, I don't have the time to take apart tools :)

    That really is a nice looking MT. Since I copied your Squirt mod I've been using it a lot at work. It's come in very handy multiple times. I've never thought of carrying a Squirt until you started this thread.

    really impressive work, one of the most inspiring threads I have read. Looking forward to the weekend and some time in my shop, need to build stuff with my hands. Shame we don't have TSA here in Austria, no way I can get cheap multitools to play with, esp. not like the hundreds you have. :)

    I'm going to stalk your work a little more now, excuse me. ;)

    Just joined the forum, and in the middle of putting together a new edc package, I find this this thread... pure Awesomeness!

    Quick question... Where did you get the straight pins?

    Metro,
    I have always been interested in multitools, knives, and spent many hours reading technical specifications or manufacturers info related to these beautiful engineering pieces (I usually read a lot, on many different topics). That's how I found EDCF; and then I founded this thread and others from yours. All of that happened months ago, but today I joined the forum, so I needed to post a reply here and I join, from Chile, every one else's comments... This thread is an inspiration. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

    Haha. Pivots I have. I was talking about the straight pins you added to the tweezers... Aha, eBay has some Vic ones for cheap.

    Necro thread. I just read through the entire adventure and I can't believe this was only a year ago. Some have bought some scales off shape ways and made their own splashes. I need to make another one for myself since I gave mine away to a friend.

    Thanks to my crazy detailed build thread, putting one together won't be that hard.


    There is always a way, hack on!

    Wow....I just bought a PS4 and was looking to validate my decision when I stumbled into this thread. Somehow I have a feeling this won't be the last Squirt I buy. Amazing work, Metro!

    Just finished binge-reading this thread. I never wanted to pay what they ask for a squirt; now I want to pay that and then some to mod one up. Thanks, @metropolicity, for your contributions to humanity!

    *dusts hands off*, my job is done.

    Just wanted to prove even the lowliest of multitools deserves some air time. :D

    Thanks!
