    Replaced the wick in my Zippo lighter. Used the pliers to pick out all the rayon/cotton wool packing, change wick and then use the small flat blade driver to repack all the wadding back in. Works like a charm...

    A friend's rotary can-opener broke unexpectedly, so I came-to-the-rescue with my Wave's opener.

    @Elmiro Dungfoot: I've never bothered to have an electric can opener in my kitchen; just use a hand operated model. Recent years I've noticed more and more cans either have a dented lip on the can or lip is somehow uneven or.... At any rate, often means none of my can openers can gain enough traction to really open the can.

    Never mind sez I... I keep a SAK handy; many is the time the SAK can opener easily handled the job! :)

    L'chaim!

    I had to Blue Loctite the adjustment screws on my kydex sheath, and opened-up the new tube with my indispensable Wave Plus. Last week, I replaced the 'lint catcher' on the washer outlet hose, and had to cinch-up the tie-wrap.

    All week I've been packing to move to a new house so it's seen heavy use all week.
    Knife used when box cutter wasn't in arms reach or wife using it
    Pliers took apart the 4 beds
    Wire cutter snipped many zip ties
    All screw drivers seen use in many places
    File to get rid of the staple that was sticking out and cut my finger open (EDC bandages from wallet were used here)
    Handy to open many bottles of Becks Beer
    Many other things too numerous to mention

    The move is tomorrow and it all starts over again putting everything together on Monday. Also the LED Mag Lites saw quite a bit of action too.

    I used the 'need-nose pliers' on my Wave Plus to expedite a grip change on my two S&W revolvers. It helped in removing the swivel off the revolver's frame.

    Zip-zap, and I was done!

    Put the rubber Hogues back on my Lew Horton 610, and my VZ 'black-cheeries' on the 4"bbl.-version.

    Used the Leatherman Piranha 2 to scrape the final, stubborn bits of contact adhesive from our hall floor after removing the old carpet strip, and used the Gerber Shard to scrape out some nasty gunk from under the diamond jungle carpet python’s vivarium.

    Exciting times!

    Gerber Dime to disassemble my portable jump starter so I could repair it and glue it up so it wouldn't come apart when removing it, as well as cutting off any excess glue from the casing afterwards
