About: I made a beer mug with only a knife and a hatchet. I think that says a lot about me.

I've always been a fan of wearable tools.

Useful design. Wear it & use it - that kind of spirit.

For example. Why wearing a pendant just because it's 'nice'? Or 'cool'? Or 'awesome'?

Too bad, no?

Same reflection about bracelets. Why wearing a bracelet just because it makes your fore-arms look more manly?

Or because it makes others believe you really ARE a rockstar, in fact.

Too bad, no? bis

Since I'm still waiting for the mens version of the Leatherman Tread, and I'm not finished working on a decent ànd affordable sidekick of this concept I DO already have a kind of alternative for a lot of 'just cool' pendants.

You know, I'm using screwdrivers all day long. Some jobs just only require a screwdriver & a knife, and since I'm fed up having that big multitool all day long in my pocket - making me look like the (proud, hum...) owner of a disproportioned ..., well, hum, I decided to build a decent, cheap, lightweight alternative.

I know you know what I mean.

Unless 1 you ARE Bigfoot, of course.

In that case: wishing you the best of luck.

Unless 2 you just don't care fooling the audience all day long.

In that case: no need to read further. Find a psy.

Whatever. Talking multitools again.

My design: Thor meets Mc Gyver.

Thors hammer aka Mjolnir, multitool version. Or bi-tool, if you want.

Al you need is a welder.

Or a friend having a welder.

Or a friend owing you a service having a welder.

Or the local garage willing to give you an hour for free in their workshop while they repair your car.

Just examples. Get that welder!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Design & Setup

Besides a welder, you probably also need a few screwdriver bits - long ones & short ones.

A set of high-quality short ones cost about 20$, the long about 30$.

The more expensive, the better.

Just kidding. I grabbed the cheapest bits I could find and decided to dismantle a cheap drill bit holder.

If you want to spend Money For Nothing, your choice.

Step 2: Welding & Grinding

Weld the short bits together first and add the long one later.

You want to make it more complicated? Go ahead. From a bi-tool to a multitool is just a few welds away.

Btw, a good setup is definitely a time-saver...

Step 3: Grinding & Polishing

I did some experiments with normal short bits and grinded - read extra-small - bits.

Honestly, the short version looks a lot better than the long one.

Weld & compare - the advantage of cheap bits, you know...

Step 4: You ARE the Rockstar, Maybe

Adding some paracord finishes the shortest manly project ever posted on this site.

Blue is the new black. Also because I just didn't hàve black paracord...

Now you're a rockstar, able to dismantle & reassemble your own gear by your own lonely yourself.

Once you've opened that amplifier you'll discover there's definitely NO cat inside.

The dirty noise was just you again. Really.

Making a crossbreed between Mc Gyver & Thor doesn't mean you've got the right to fool with elemental forging basics. Note the crack on the last picture. I quenched Mjolnir but forgot the tempering. Shame on me.

The dirty work was just me. Really.

    I love the idea; I can think of all kinds of multi-bit combos I want to make. Now I just have to learn how to weld...

    Great idea and great instruction!

    Red hot, and then right away in sunseed oil. Smell of fries all over the place, and a nice hardened pendant in return.

    I wouldn't go thàt far, but I respect your opinion and thank you for the support! ;)

    Btw, I wasn't even sure about publishing this project or not. Seems I did well...

    I know how you feel with those random ideas. I had one of those the other day but it was not as ingenious as this. I love the idea of it being on a pendant, I like necklaces, but the only reason i would wear one is if i made it or it was useful to me.

    I sand stuff a lot. maybe I should make a sandpaper necklace pendant. Oooooh, here comes the ideas.

    Thanks for sharing, i enjoy reading all your instructables. I like their names.

    Awesome tool! I think I may have to do this with some Allen wrenches as well, maybe a 4 way design... I always seem to misplace a tool or two, maybe this tool will help me from always having to search and "Loki"-ate them

    HAPPY 16th BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND! Send me your best address in a pm and maybe, maybe, I will start to meditate about the sense of plate tectonics and, more important, the possibiity to reverse them ànd the eventuality to make your day in a middle-nearby-future...

    Thanx nathan. Sometimes ideas come just on their own. I was welding some other stuff and there were screwdrivers hanging around. 'Why not weld some screwdrivers?!' I thought.

    Sometimes the hands just have to follow the mind...

    Totally! I think that is where some of the best ideas come from.
