I've always been a fan of wearable tools.
Useful design. Wear it & use it - that kind of spirit.
For example. Why wearing a pendant just because it's 'nice'? Or 'cool'? Or 'awesome'?
Too bad, no?
Same reflection about bracelets. Why wearing a bracelet just because it makes your fore-arms look more manly?
Or because it makes others believe you really ARE a rockstar, in fact.
Too bad, no? bis
Since I'm still waiting for the mens version of the Leatherman Tread, and I'm not finished working on a decent ànd affordable sidekick of this concept I DO already have a kind of alternative for a lot of 'just cool' pendants.
You know, I'm using screwdrivers all day long. Some jobs just only require a screwdriver & a knife, and since I'm fed up having that big multitool all day long in my pocket - making me look like the (proud, hum...) owner of a disproportioned ..., well, hum, I decided to build a decent, cheap, lightweight alternative.
I know you know what I mean.
Unless 1 you ARE Bigfoot, of course.
In that case: wishing you the best of luck.
Unless 2 you just don't care fooling the audience all day long.
In that case: no need to read further. Find a psy.
Whatever. Talking multitools again.
My design: Thor meets Mc Gyver.
Thors hammer aka Mjolnir, multitool version. Or bi-tool, if you want.
Al you need is a welder.
Or a friend having a welder.
Or a friend owing you a service having a welder.
Or the local garage willing to give you an hour for free in their workshop while they repair your car.
Just examples. Get that welder!
Step 1: Design & Setup
Besides a welder, you probably also need a few screwdriver bits - long ones & short ones.
A set of high-quality short ones cost about 20$, the long about 30$.
The more expensive, the better.
Just kidding. I grabbed the cheapest bits I could find and decided to dismantle a cheap drill bit holder.
If you want to spend Money For Nothing, your choice.
Step 2: Welding & Grinding
Weld the short bits together first and add the long one later.
You want to make it more complicated? Go ahead. From a bi-tool to a multitool is just a few welds away.
Btw, a good setup is definitely a time-saver...
Step 3: Grinding & Polishing
I did some experiments with normal short bits and grinded - read extra-small - bits.
Honestly, the short version looks a lot better than the long one.
Weld & compare - the advantage of cheap bits, you know...
Step 4: You ARE the Rockstar, Maybe
Adding some paracord finishes the shortest manly project ever posted on this site.
Blue is the new black. Also because I just didn't hàve black paracord...
Now you're a rockstar, able to dismantle & reassemble your own gear by your own lonely yourself.
Once you've opened that amplifier you'll discover there's definitely NO cat inside.
The dirty noise was just you again. Really.
Making a crossbreed between Mc Gyver & Thor doesn't mean you've got the right to fool with elemental forging basics. Note the crack on the last picture. I quenched Mjolnir but forgot the tempering. Shame on me.
The dirty work was just me. Really.
