What's the Story?
my visit to the U.S. in 1997 I'm fascinated by the multi-tools of Leatherman®.
When I returned back in the Netherlands I bought myself a Leatherman Super
tool® and it's fitting Tool Adapter. Not long after that I got a
job as a Technical Educational Assistant in a brand new chemical and physics
lab. A lot of things had to be done to make the lab a good working
place. All tools I could find were a hammer and some old pliers which had
their best time. No need for panic as my Leatherman® was always
with me. Even the saw goes through wood as a warm knife through butter.
Theirs only one action I much regret...
a day I found two wooden crates with a lot of danger signs on it. The label
told me they contained concentrated hydrochloric acid and concentrated
ammonia, both chemicals you can't have enough on a school's laboratory.
Since I couldn't find anything looking like a crowbar I decided to use the
diamond file for the job. With a enormous amount of force I could remove the
lid of the first crate. The second was even harder to open and at some stage
I decided to stand on the handles to create as much possible force. Well,
the crate didn't open, but unfortunately my file broke of. I guess warranty
doesn't cover that...
