Right Tool for the Job
I'm a youth pastor and last summer I took a group of kids to Mexico on a mission trip. While we were there we worked at a woman's house making repairs to it. One of these projects was to remodel part of her house to make it into a hair salon. The City required that she have a working bathroom in the salon area other than the bathroom in her house. So we went to work building it for her. I ended up using my Leatherman Blast tool nonstop on plumbing and carpentry projects.
The best of these moments was when we were trying to use a saw to cut through PVC piping for the drains. I got so sick of using the saw that was provided because it could barely cut and when it did you could count it not being a straight cut. It was maddening work in 100+ degree weather. I had had enough so I got out my Leatherman and cut through the pipes with ease and accuracy. I was so pleased. If I wasn't a lifetime customer before, I definitely was after.
Longer blades mean easier slicing, sawing, filing and more, while Zytel® handle inserts provide a comfortable, reliable grip.
