How do you hold your tool.,,

be prepared !, as the Scouts say. Well in the race cars we carry a Leatherman charge TTI and need it in a handy place, I have always hated the method of using a zip tie on a  standard sheath idea onto the roll cage like this.

so another quick 5 minutes on the CAD ( days ?? ), 

I had a prototype , then I had a 3D print version , then I tried again, and again.

Letherman plastic mounting that clips in and holds secure, easy removal by squeezing the two tabs

After four attempts, I found the winner.

Now to get a proper 3D print version in a nice colour.

I will add an update and then add it to the shop on Shapeways.com so you can buy it in any colour you fancy.

3D Printed Titanium tools… drool

The McLaren boat tail sorry SpeedTail has had the American tool manufacturer Snap-On  3D print a tool kit in titanium

super light and super strong, 

maybe next for the desert warrior 4 ?

I bet they even make standard Snap-on tools look good value.

What are the chances of someone who owns a McLaren that they will be  fixing it themselves!!, so they will just be a teasing bit of eye candy

Never a dull day
