What’s Your Favorite Leatherman Tool?

You Gotta Love Leatherman!

Leatherman has millions of fans for their legendary “multi purpose tools.” As a connoisseur of Leatherman products I know there is a good reason for that: They are quite simply the best. My personal favorite, the multi-tool I truly cannot live without, is the “Micra.”

My favorite Leatherman Tool

This is a pocket sized power house with a usefulness quotient that cant be beat. Since it is so small and lightweight, you are going to have it in your pocket and the uses you will find for it, just because its there, are astounding. Gardening: Need to dead head a few flowering plants? Cut back to stimulate growth? Trim some dead growth? Your needs are met! Fishing: Cuts the limpest braided line, trims mono with ease, cuts bait, rinse it off and its good as new! Home repairs: See a loose screw?  Tighten it as you are walking by, Need a knife? of course there is a razor sharp knife blade as well as a nail file.

I don’t think that any other company comes close to the design perfections of Team Leatherman. Other companies may have strong, good looking functional tools with sharp blades and other useful accessories, but Leatherman always excels with comfort during use, as well as strength and great looks.

The Micra has some true innovation in its design.

Flat Phillips Tool

One feature is a “flat” phllips screwdriver. This is brilliant on Leatherman’s behalf. Since the tool is so small a regular phillips head would have to be too small to be usable on a lot of screw heads. The solution? Flatten it! It works on many sizes of phillips screws, and despite the Micra’s small size, its tough stainless steel build can handle an impressive amount of torque. The Flat head screw driver tool has the added benefit of a bevel which makes it usefull for small scraping and even chiseling chores. The bottle opener also has a sharp awl end for hole punching. The tweezers are attached and have cutting ends as well for an embedded splinter.

Need to measure something? A metric and standard rule is stamped on the outside edge. and last but not least, a view of the tool in it’s “pocket” state. All Together there are are 10 suprisingly rugged tools contained in this 2 1/2 inch package.  Its one of leatherman’s most popular tools.   It also comes in colors now too!  I’ve bought many Micras because like i said, I cant live without one in my pocket and I’ve lost a few at airports to the security people,  a couple fell overboard when fishing,

You can check out all the Leatherman tools at Photon Light.  I realize that for some, the Micra might not be enough of a tool. Which ever Leatherman you choose, you know you will be getting an excellent quality, balanced, comfortable Multi tool. Photon light also has some really neat flashlights.  At least stop by and visit them and see if you see anything you like.  I am an affiliate for them, I might make buck fifty if you buy a Micra or other leatherman from them, but i actually shopped around a lot before I chose Photon light to work with on this. They’ve got great pricing and are cool people who like cool stuff.. like us!

Little Giant Rules! What a ladderl

Little Giant Ladders: Type 1A (free shipping & work platform), 480x60

Its been at least 20 years since i first became acquainted with Little Giant Ladders. I was working at a home show with The Little Giant booth located across the aisle from me. The rep went through an amazing demonstration with this ladder accompanied by intriguing metallic clicks and clunks and an amazing plethora of ladder positions. This never failed to draw a crowd of fascinated prospects. I was so intrigued with the product I worked for them for a few years and I was doing the home show presentations. It was fun, a great experience and I sold a lot of them.  I’ve always kept my eye on Little Giant to see what was next.

Since the early 80’s this ladder has only gotten better! Hal Wing, the inventor of Little Giant says the secret is in the hinge.

Because of this hinge the Little Giant can perform feats unheard of with other ladders, even other multipurpose ladders.
Since the legs are adjustable in one foot increments, its the only ladder that is truly safe on uneven surfaces. even stairs. The flared legs and tough “feet” give it incomparable stability for any of it’s positions. All Little Giant Ladders allow for multiple heights as A-frame ladders, and open to extend to 4 times their storage size!

Did you know that most accidents at home are falls from standing on an inadequate object to gain height? Why risk not having the best ladder possible for your high projects?
