Or just not opening smoothly...
Here's how to fix and maintain it.
Your Multi-tool may not be similar... but the same guide can be followed..
What you will need:-
- 1200/800g Wet-n-Dry abrasive paper
- Lubricant preferably teflon based
- Clean dry cloth
- Small container
Step 1: Taking your MT apart-
Believe me, if you get them messed up your going to be there for a while sorting the mess out.
I prefer to take an A4 piece of paper, and line the parts out in order...
This allows us to simply "stack", the parts back into the chassis of the unit..
Begin by locating the fixing mechanism's, which retain the implements..
On my model I have four small bolts...
Some models have a swing arm locking mech..
Locate it and remove the locking system..
Step 2: Removing implement stacks
Before doing so have a look at how they are stacked, how the finger grips are positioned etc. This will be important when re-assembling the unit...
Take care not to loose the spacer washers if used.
Take the stack out in one piece..
Then line the implements out in the order of the stack..
Write numbers on the paper for reference if needed..
Once we have everying separated, it should be easy to see rust, wear and tear etc...
