Leatherman Wave Metal Saw

Introduction: Leatherman Wave Metal Saw

I was looking for a "cheap and dirty" way to use a metal saw on the Wave, like on the Surge, so I made this project using standard jigsaw blades.

Step 1: Concept

The objective is to use the Wave's tool locker (on the file and wood-saw side only) to prevent the jigsaw blade from slipping, with a thick layer (1.5mm) of epoxy resin on the base of a U-shank / T-shank jigsaw blade.

This way the blade can be mechanically retained by the tool locker.

Step 2: Add a Thick Layer of Epoxy Resin on the End of a Jigsaw Blade, Let It Dry, and Grind It

The final thickness should be approximately 1.5mm, and the lengh about 9mm.

Here is the "U-shank" jigsaw blade example.

Step 3: T-shank Jigsaw Blade Type

For T-shank type blade, you have 2 options:

A: original blade with epoxy, unmodified, easiest-lasiest ... but less efficient, tends to move more in heavy use.

B: blade with "ears" and bottom grinded; it can fit a little bit more inside the Wave, and thereby, the blade will stay locked by the frame and the locker of the Wave.

    Please note that the blade can be reversed (teeth facing up OR down).

    Interesting. It can be removed?

    That's a great addition to a multi-tool. Good thinking!
