Default Multi Tool

G'day Guys,

I was looking for a new "leatherman" and I had a thought... could a combo tool be made for us?

What would you like to see in your pocket tool?

YEAH like one of those swiss pocket knife deals where it had a knife cork opener and other stuff, but instead its a glow plug remover, tunning screw driver and alens and nut wrench for like a quick pit for ur pit man. That would be awsome, I might be over exageratingbut still would be cool to see someone make one!

Yeah all that combined into a swiss knife deal would be awsome. IDK how the 17mm would fit but it still sounds AWSOME. That would pretty much eliminate buying a pit caddy or having full hands.

good idea

I'm picturing something with a screwdriver type handle that has a thick rubber pad on the end and will fit into the flywheel opening. Just a quick press and it's done. This would be a great tool for a runaway car.

17mm hex adapter could be made to be like a t-handle, with the rest of the tools folding out of the main body. Built-in temp gun? Spot for a spare plug or 2?

I know that everybody doesn't wear a hat, but I always use the bill of my hat to kill the motor.
