    Considering it's just 8:47am here and I'm still at home...
    -Reattached a door.
    -Replaced a deadbolt lock.
    -Replaced the wax ring on a toilet.
    -Assembled a shelving unit.

    Yeah, I have a few toolboxes with dedicated tools, but I'm not carrying all that crap around for minor jobs.

    Had to fix alot of termite damage on my father's garage. Had to pull a bunch of nails and staples. I keep a sog powerlock in my house projects toolbag and it was invaluable with the hard to reach nails and electrical staples. I even used it to clear a few jambs on the nail gun. Saved alot of trips back down the ladder for sure. After this workout I plan to make a dedicated plier outof the geared plier head. Maybe fab up a few handle inserts. Great tool, glad to have it on hand!

    Used my new Leatherman Raptor shears a few times on shift yesterday and today. Only cut through tshirts so not an adequate test but it cut through them like butter :)

    Just picked up a surge the other day and have been playing with it to break it in. Used it to rescue my mother inlaws tahoe today that decided to pop the security/antitheft fuse.

    Taught some youngsters (mid-30s) how I would use my Wenger Evowood S557 as an improvised impact device with the wrench deployed on one end and the Phillips on the other.

    Still toting around the new leatherman surge

    1:wired in some new LED tail lights on our old horse trailer,

    2:actually FIXED my mother inlaws Tahoe, had a wire that had some rubbed though insulation in the steering column and was shorting to ground against the main bracket. MIL is short so when she pulled the tilt wheel all the way down (in the lap of the rest of us) so its comfortable for her, it would put the wire in this position. Thats why it was a little tricky to narrow down since no one else ever would have it happen to them.

    3: Opened the mail and some boxes

    4: it help modify some organizational containers for my luggage

    I work in the garden center of the big orange home improvement store and occasionally there comes a customer who wants to fit a fully assembled 5 burner grill into a Honda Civic. I used my Leatherman Wingman to unscrew the burners from the grill base so that it would fit in the trunk and back seats of the car.

    My parents are building a new fence with a roof on it, its like a shed but with a wall missing and a lounge set underneath (I'm sure this has a name, but I haven't the slightest clue)
    Anyway, for some reason my step dad misplaced his entire toolbox and the humble Vic Tourist mounted a few lights onto the wood fence. Technically it is his SAK and accomplishment but I'm always proud when these things happen.

    It was frozen so it was pretty tough. Luckily I had a Wave hand so I didnt have to grab the skill saw from the garage.

    Yesterday I used the saw on my Charge Tii to saw some holes, pull off electrical covers and threw the bit extension in someone else's driver for a bit cause they said I wouldn't need my drills (go figure) at a drywall repair during work.

    Later that evening I used the saw on my Juice XE6 to carve a small cup out of styrofoam, we were melting aluminum in a homemade forge but we got it so hot that it melted through the steel container made from a fire extinguisher and I didn't get a chance to make my mold, oh well! My friends had some success the day before when I wasn't there making statues of one specific obscene body part, I'll give ya three guesses but you'll only need one lol
