    Used my new Leatherman squirt PS4 scissors to cut handfuls of my wife's hair out of the robot vacuum brush ends. When I bought it, I figured that would be the last tool I used out of it. Irony.

    Never underestimate the usefulness of a good pair of scissors!

    I wonder if you could drive a LONG screw into the ink cartridge so as to get a better 'handle' on the cartridge? Would be messy as h**l, but if you can get the cartridge out, cleaning the barrel of the pen should be doable.

    L'chaim!

    I love using my Wave for the can opener. I used it this morning.

    I sat in the truck, in the rain, waiting for something to break.[​IMG]

    Not exactly a multi-tool, but I used the micro-screwdriver in my SAK compact to adjust the flame on my Zippo insert before/after filling.

    I didn't know the Gadsden flag scales were available on the Compact. I've only seen them for the Tinker and the Classic. Where did you find this?

    L'chaim!

    I found it on ebay. I don't know if it is important to you, but the Gadsden compact does not have the pen. I also have a Rambler with the Gadsden scales that I found on ebay last year.

    Thanks. Not really hunting hard for these; just was surprised that the scales were available for other SAKs.

    L'chaim!

    LMAO. And in a Toyota, you'll be looking for something to break elsewhere.

    I used my SOG reactor pliers to remove a bee stinger from my wife's toe while at the lake today.

    Used the saw on the wave to enlarge a hole in the back of moms entertainment system cabinet.

    I used the scissors in my PS4 to cut the zip ties that we were using to hold up the Fourth of July decorations on the deck railing. Also used the knife blade to cut the sealing tape on the wrapper of the string of lights that we put up.

    Used mine yesterday (does that still count?)

    Setting up a second hand 3000lt (600gallon) water tank, I power washed the inside, using the flathead on my Spirit to tighten a jubilee hose-clip. Then removed some inch-and-a-quarter brass bank-off threaded caps from the underside of the tank, for inspection and cleaning, and found the sealant material inside the caps had perished and gone yucky. It was some kind of red cardboard type of substance, and I dug it out of the caps with the awl on my Spirit.

    Used the saw on my Wave to cut a hole into my ceiling for some remodeling work. Great for Sheetrock.

    I semi-fixed a potential hazard on a pole at the pool I lifeguard at. The pole used for vacuuming has two holes near the end for the vac head to lock into. One of them has a break in the metal that created a nice point sticking out to stab the poor soul who tried to attach something to the pole. I used my LM Wingman's pliers to bend the section with the point back into line with the rest of the pole. I also used the file in an attempt to smooth out the pointy edge a little. Worked fairly well and made it easy to hook up the vac head.

    I removed the spark plug from a flooded generator to purge the excess fuel.
