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

Intro: Mjölnir Multi-2-l

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!

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 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.
