Ok, I just got this idea minutes ago after loosing/finding my vex tools for about the millionth time.
Why doesn’t Vex make a specially designed multi-tool? That way I would not loose my tools, and it would just be sweet! It would be amazing if it included all of the tools that come with the Vex Starter Kit, and a pliers. Maybe some other things too.
Anyone else have some input? I would really like to hear from a Vex person about this…
I must agree that a “swiss army tool” for Vex would be nice. However, I have a particular way to approach it that may work well. Two words: Vex Ratchet. Have different sockets/tips that fit all the Vex hardware. Have the head where it will work either straight or at a 90 degree angle. I just got through doing some modifications to a current robot, and found that this would have been most useful.
I’ve seen things similar to this at hardware stores, but obviously nothing in the size that would fix vex. The ratchet would need to be super small (narrow) and long, but I think it could be done with the proper planning.
