Introduction: Leatherman Surge (redesigned Version) Eyeglass Screwdriver

The objective of this instructable is to use efficiently the eyeglass screwdriver on the new redesigned Leatherman Surge, who lacks the capability to hold this small screwdriver.

Step 1: Sacrifice ...

You will need to sacrify one of your "bit kit":

1- With a Dremel, cut the both ends of the bit driver, leave around 8mm of the central portion (keep it centered).

2- The most difficult part: cut a groove just the thickness of the eyeglass screwdriver (the finest side), just deep enough for the screwdriver to fit totally inside the groove.

3- Add some superglue, welding, epoxy ... whatever you want, it doesn't really matter.

Step 2: And Voilà !

You can use your new homemade bit both in the Surge and the bit extender !

This is totally bad ass!
I have ground down a Leatherman bit to use as tension so I can use various cutting blades in the bit holder. I should have figured this out.
Great job!

Now I feel silly, I was planning on removing my wave mini screwdriver and swapping it with my surge's small ish flathead screwdriver.
I've got an extra bit or two from purchasing bit kits.
