    Ozark Trail Multiforce 18 in 1 replacement bits

    I own two Multiforce tools, but I had only one double-ended screwdriver bit between them. Walmart, who sells Ozark Trail, had nothing to offer. After several months of combing the internet, I finally found, not only a replacement bit, but an entire bit kit that works with the Multiforce. It set...

    What multitool or SAK did you buy today

    Arrived 3 days ago: My purchase, from that big online auction site, did not include the sheath or the bit extension, but it only set me back $22.80, including S&H. The plier jaws are a bit tight, but that might be because it was a display model. I own another Multiforce that has jaws that...

    It followed me home (Part 2)

    You're Plumb right! When i purchased this hatchet, forty-plus years ago, I had hired on with a carpentry crew for the summer doing mostly framing. That's probably from where my misguided terminology arose. As carpenter's half-hatchets go, mine is quite large and heavy, with a waffle face...

    What multitool or SAK did you buy today

    In today's mail I received this mid-eighties PST with a leather holster: I found that there is a significant difference between the small screwdriver on this tool compared to the one on another PST I own from the same period. Yes, today's acquisition pictured on the left has a gentle curve...

    Lets see your leatherman accessory sheath setup

    Skinth...I second the motion! Mine was a Christmas present that took 5 weeks to arrive from the time I ordered it, because they only build it once you have placed your order. I get the most out of my Surge, because I always have all the accessories close by. BTW, because I am traveling, I...

    "Bond. Leatherman Bond."

    I had a LM Bond in hand for the first time 2 days ago when I stopped in at SMKW wile traveling through the area to visit family in NC. The Bond felt great in my hand and functioned well as I would expect of any LM. I would have trouble, however, EDCing a Bond, because I would be giving up so...

    Wave +, new owner but where the lanyard hole at??

    Check out Skinth sheaths on line. They have many options and are built to last forever. They are not cheap, and they are built-to-order, so you might wait a few weeks to get one. For me, it was well worth the wait; I love mine! T-A

    What multitool or SAK did you buy today

    A pawn shop purchase from a few days ago, #3 in the lineup, and to the right in the second and third photos. It was too cheap to pass up. Can any one tell me which two models I have here? And why the holes in the side views (photo #3)? Why is one hole round and the other more banana shaped...

    I watched the video about the Nextool Flagship Pro, and, from what I learned, both the master blade and the saw have secure linerlocks. You might want to watch the video again and see if I'm right. That tool seems to have the largest/ strongest scissors that I have ever seen in a plier-based...

    My many LM multitools have served me well for decades, and I never leave the house without one or more on my person. Most of mine have been acquired second hand, and, while the Leatherman warranty department has taken very good care of me over the years, keep in mind that they clearly state that...

    I agree that customer reviews alone don't tell the whole story, but they do add to the story. So check out TX Tool Crib's detailed review comparing the Multiforce and the LM Wave, if you have 85 minutes to spare. I'm not saying anyone should buy a Multiforce. I'm just saying anyone who wants a...

    Nextool Flagship Pro...I'll have to keep my eye out for one of those cheap (garage sale/pawn shop/etc.). I love my LM Surges (all 3 of them!), but I'm interested in the double butterfly design. T-A

    You're right! Don't listen to me or to that TX Tool Crib guy. What do we know, anyway! And don't pay any attention to the 73 Walmart Multiforce purchasers who gave it a 4.7 out of 5.0 rating. What do they know! After all, only 97% of them would recommend that you should get a Multiforce for...

    What multi tool, You using today?

    Repaired a hole in the fiberglass roof of my 40 year old stock trailer. The saw on my LM Surge worked well to trim out the rough edges of the hole, and the ruler helped me measure for the new patch. T-A

    I think you and many others need to reconsider the quality and value to be found in an Ozark Trail Multiforce 18 in 1 multitool. Don't write it off just because it bears the name of a company known for very inexpensive low quality import crap. This tool needs to be experienced to be appreciated...
