For those that don’t know, each month we do a Donation Draw on the forum to help offset the costs of running a site like this. As you can see, we don’t run nearly as many ads as many sites do, and we don’t intend to add any more than what you see here now.
Some time ago I had written about the value of a modded tool, and the short version is that I had come up with an equation that I use to determine what a mod is worth to me. With so many modders out there these days, many of which charging an exorbitant fee for their services, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
This was meant as a loose guideline to help folks get into the ballpark of what something was worth, and, in short, it looks something like this:
Materials (=all materials - recoverable materials) + labor + Profit (%)= Value
A few days ago I recieved this message on Facebook from a longtime member and friend, who shall remain nameless, and who has had their Leatherman Tread confiscated by airline security. Naturally, as you can imagine, this member was seriously concerned.
We are down to the semi finals here, with SOG leading by one point and two events left! Who will reign supreme, the Leatherman Skeletool or the SOG Reactor? Leatherman is down a point already, so let's see if they can pull off a win!
Part 6- Carry Methods
Another big strength of the Skeleool is its versatility in carry- it can be clipped onto a pack or other equipment or clipped to a pocket using the pocket clip. Conversely the Reactor can really only be carried clipped to a pocket.
