Good idea OBG!

Sometimes I wish i could get some power or shop tools/equipment to play with so I can try things like that.

BTW: anyone see the new fubar's from stanely? Two of them are 30" long and offer some more features on them then previous models (i.e.Demolition head, Gas shut-off feature, Spanner wrench, etc).

And not to mention this guy for demo:

Guess I'm just lucky. But then, I don't use them every day...

The longer it is, the harder for me to justify carrying every day. I think 3.5" is about my limit.

I do have a ~8" one in my bug-out bag, and a decent-sized one in my car and another under my bed (in case the house collapses during the night).

No worries, didn't mean that you meant they weren't useful (did I just type that sentence? LOL). I see them as well thought out tools that just work with little to no moving parts. I personally like the atwoods that aren't jazzed up with glow dots or angle grinds, the ones that are basic and plain and do the job period. Same goes with all tools i purchase.

Not being a fireguy, I might be wrong, but I always thought it was a Halligan tool , and that Hooligans were rowdy troublemakers...

Yes. I keep a basic kit at my desk at work in a cheap soft-side lunch cooler. I can easily carry it in and out of the office without a second glance.
