    Tightened the screws on a cast iron door stop, cut some zip ties, tightened a closet handle, "modified" a strap by cutting it to a point for easier fitting through the buckle, opened several blister packaged items, cut some twine while up in the garden.
    All mundane tasks.
    Sorry for the lack of tier one Spec-Ops SEAL super operative tasks.

    There's "tacticool", and then there's "practicool".

    Sounds like your multi was pulling practicool double duty.

    Rebuilt my computer into a new case. Lots of hex head screws and a bit of pliar bending to allow cable attachment in the back.

    Changed a wall outlet to a new one with USB, cut some zip ties, opened a pagage and used the straight pin to check the gage on my fire extinguisher

    It's not failure if you learn something from it

    I hope so! I hooked it up to a wireless phone charger and it seems to work great!

    Well the wave opened the boys RC car for me batteries. Then helped me pull thread through the leather of my home made pocket slip. I'm new, of you can't tell, at making anything creative.[​IMG]
    Don't know what else I may get into today.

    Uses my leatherman squirt to fix my sunglasses.
    This thing is so useful. I keep it on my dash.

    Nice. I am also a fan of the large Case stockman. One of mine is the brother of yours -- except mine is with SS blades! The other one is pattern 25783, with Kentucky Bluegrass Bone scales. These knives -- as well as the large Case trappers -- just feel so great in hand!

    L'chaim!

    Last Week in Florida on a job I needed to file a door strike so an Automated deadbolt could be used with Alexa and all I had for a file was on my Spirit X!

    That :censored: file is INSANE!

    Opened a can that didn't already have a pull-top top.

    The can opener on my SAK is my most used tool, but I almost never actually use it for opening cans. So this was a treat.

    The pivot on my EDC knife gots little loose and I used my Wave with BitKit to adjust it and move on. It would have botherd me to wait until I got home.
