    I used to my atwrench the other day to replace a friend's honda's brake pads....easy job really...the wrench was perfect for loosing the caliper retaining bolt because of its small size...and it worked even tho Honda bolts are almost exclusively metric...then i used the pry tip to get the old pads out...put the new ones in...and DONE...then we had a couple of beers..opened by the bottle opener on the atwrench...and i showed off how bright the glow dot is in a completely dark room....hahaaha :cool:

    Had to restring a weedwacker but ran into resistance when trying to get the head apart. G2 Prybaby made short work of it and now my yard looks much better. :)

    I was at a Fire-watch cabin up in the mountains yesterday, and needed water.
    There was a spigot on the outside with no handle, but someone had run a philips screw into it perpendicular.
    Well my Nibble pulled double duty, and backed out the screw enough to use the bottle opener on the screw head for rotational torque.

    Thanks Peter.

    I used my funnybone to raise the training wheels on my youngest (3 year old) Son's bike. The last raise before they come off :)

    I used my G3 prybaby yesterday to pry the dead bulb out of the light fixture for the refugium on my salt water aquarium. It was probably the first "why the hell am I doing this by hand when I have an Atwood?" moment I've truly had :smitten:

    I used my Nibble to tighten up a loose screw on the sun visor in my car. :)

    Does this count as using your Atwood tool?

    used it to pop open a few beers last night.
    They were twistys, but I still prefer the prybaby ;)

    used it to scrape superglue also.

    In less entertaining news, some of you may recall the horrible train wreck that occurred in Los Angeles about 10 days ago in which a commuter train crashed head on into a freight train, killing 25 people. As it turns out, the wreck took place a couple hundred yards from one of the most special places in the world to me, a legendary climbing area that people travel the world to visit. (Several of the very famous 60s Yosemite guys started here as local boys and this spot offers some of the best bouldering to be found anywhere.)

    In any event, because of the proximity to a place I've spent some special times, I wanted to check out how the accident impacted the park. I knew they had built a road down through the park to the site of the wreck in order to move heavy equipment in and I wanted to see where they put that road.

    While we there, I used the Emerald Arc to cut some trashed fire line tape out of the trees.

    No, I did not see the actual wreck site, and no I did not try. You can see it from the top of the hill, but I didn't climb very high. They had all the wreckage cleared away within 48 hours of the crash anyway. Nothing is there to be seen but an LAPD squad car posted to keep idiots from walking on the tracks. There is a moving memorial set up for the victims on a nearby street and we took a moment to observe that.

    Seems like it was our little conversation that brought that picture to life. ;D

    I used my atwrench to dig a bunch of plant material out of my pond pump.

    I just used my G3 Prybaby to pop the stuck collection cup off the top of my protein skimmer in my reef tank! (I totally want a pond when I own a home)

    I had to go back into the archives to find this thread, but my Keyton really came in handy tonight fixing my keyboard. My daughter had spilled apple juice in the keys. The Keyton was perfect in being a key popper!

    Good one Rick!

    The only thing my Atwwods have fixed recently is helping to eliminate all traces of money in my wallet :lolhammer:

    We had a freak snow storm come down on coastal North Carolina. My truck's windshield & wipers got iced over, & I without a scraper (usually only freezed over night but, not in the garage). Ti Bug Out Bar to the rescue.
