    today i used my TAD Skeleton key to open recalcitrant Dayquil packaging (pushing the pills through the foil wasn't working, removing the foil with a one piece multi tool worked great), adjust the pivot on my knife, and as a stencil to make a cool drawing.

    Used the wave, with other tools, to take a few doors off their hinges.

    Last week I was on a mission trip to a less than surplused comunity, I used the saw on my Super Tool to cut new door lock mount holes in solid hardwood doors left over from the 40's. Took a while, but worked like a charm.

    Used the wave to assemble some merchandise displays. Used in addition to a prybar to crack open a coin changer. Quite possibly the hardest $2.75 I ever made.

    Arrived at work this morning to no electricity, used my Charge ALX's bit driver to open and troubleshoot the panel (genius electrician had secured the panel door with a metal screw rather than simply replace the busted latch). Afterwards, I came home and my new custom Olena Grynko leather holster had arrived from Canada:

    Lately, my Charge TTi is getting a lot of use. Just an hour ago I used it to assemble a bakers shelf, for which was needed a 5/32 hex drive from the bit kit. Then I cut shims for the front legs with the saw, smoothing their edges with the file. Great tool!

    Used my Gerber Shard and my LM Syle PS to un-jam a balky stapler. Later I used the same Style PS to pop the top on a frosty Guinness. Multi-tools and St. Patty's Day. A winning combo! :cool:

    Used the blade of my Leatherman Super Tool to cut open a 40lb bag of dog food.

    I know what you're thinking.... Yes, I like to live dangerously.

    Used my Leatherman Wingman to tighten up a few bolts on a wheelbarrow while working on the farm yesterday.

    Ps: I Didn't know that horses pooped soooo much. Must've been a good 600 pounds.
