: Parts? Together?
He's refering to the collar that accepts the hex-base electric screwdriver
style bits. Gerber's version, IIRC, comes with the tool and fits over one
of the fold-out screwdriver blades. Leatherman's is a contraption that
somehow clamps onto the plier jaws, and is an extra-cost accessory.
Personally, I don't really see a big need - if the Wave can't handle the
job itself, I'll wander over to where I left my laptop bag and fish the
interchangeable bit screwdriver out of the tool pocket.
