Park Tool I-Beam Mini Fold Up Multi-tool Set

I won this neat little multi-tool from Bicycling Magazine (one of my favorite publications) for sending in a creative suggestion for an unusual use of the tool.  It's an I-Beam Mini Fold Up Hex Wrench/Screwdriver/Star Driver Set from Park Tool--great for taking on the road or trail.

The 10 tools-in-one device is compact but strong. 
* 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8mm hex wrenches
* Star-shaped T25 for fittings of disc rotor bolts
* Straight blade screwdriver

It's about the size of a single serving candy bar and is as light as about a roll of dimes...maybe a little less.  While this tool may not stave off hunger during a bike ride or buy you a cup of coffee, it could save your trip if you need to adjust your saddle, bar, stems, or buckle on your shoes while on the road.  It could also save your manicure. :-P

So, are you going to tell us the unusual use for this tool?

Virtually all petrol powered chainsaws make use of a two-cycle internal combustion engine as opposed to have separate reservoirs for motor optimization. That means it is actually vital that the operator makes use of the proper blend of gasoline and petroleum, which generally is approximately five ounces of motor oil each gallon of gas; look at the saw's manual to make certain. Without the right combination of oil and gas, a chainsaw engine will be quickly damaged and broken down.Sharpen a Chainsaw Chain
