Purdy Fold-able 10 In 1 Tool


I've got a few painters tools but never seem to have one handy. I hate having them sticking out of my back pocket.

Picked this up a few days ago. I like the design and that I can put it in a pocket without sharp edges exposed.

You're not qualified to use that might want to post in the painting forum "How do I use a folding 10 in 1?" but I'm pretty sure you have to be licensed.

Re: Purdy Fold-able 10 In 1 Tool


I have the Warner version. Absolutely hands down my most essential tool.

It fits perfectly in the ruler pocket on the side of carpenters (and painters) pants.

I usually have one in my pocket, an extra one in my tool bag and I keep a spare at home just I know I'll never be without.

Cause you absolutely have to have that if you even want to think about calling yourself a painter

I grabbed it at S&W...cut it out of the packaging and asked them to throw away the package.

Well, we'll see. I didn't know Warner made a fold-able one.
If i can remember to keep it on me I think it's going to be handy for some situations.

Neat tool, but the vid was cringe-worthy.

Now that I think about it, I could use one just for that feature.

Every time I enjoy my daily limit of one Hefeweizen from my magic garage fridge, I wander around the garage looking for something to open it with. Sometimes itís the overhead garage door track, sometimes a random tool. PocketKnife, pliers, or hammer.

I never have more than one. I donít want to become a roofer.

I don't know how I'd get along with one I couldn't just grab a hammer and use it like a chisel. It could be a little fragile.

I guess I could use it as a paint tool, though...

That's all I had in mind...paint and drywall work.

I doubt it'll come in handy for plumbing or hanging a fan....
