ANOTHER fantastic idea - I am sure we all have about 2 or 3 (dozen) extra yellow handled tools lying about. :) I will certainly be copying you! Thanks for the inspiration.

Update

I solved the color issue (cf. above): in set 3959 there has been a blue key which also can be used for this customization (also cf. the full discription in my homepage).
 ... and I had the luck actually to find one at the PlaymoConvention trading sales  :D

Never seen a blue one before!
It looks really neat combined with the other ones. :yup:
Thanks for the update, Jochen. :)

Very cool! Any idea which set the blue key comes in? I have never seen one.

According to PlaymoDB the blue tool was part of 3959 (which by the way is also the origin of a very famous female  ;D). And that's not enough: there also exists a green tool within the same set (but which can be found in several other sets too, according to PlaymoDB).

Any plans to use that for making another custom tool for your set? :)

Interestingly, the blue tool is called a dismantling tool, the green is called an installing tool, and the yellow is just a System X tool8}

And looking closely at the images, they look like the handles are different, and the yellow tool may be a combination of the blue and green tools...

Right  :yup:

No, not so far. Currently there is no need for another tool  ;D And I only have the green tool once, which is needed to make the bike workshop complete.

And looking closely at the images, they look like the handles are different, and the yellow tool may be a combination of the blue and green tools...

Yes, you're right, the yellow one is a multi-tool combination of the other both. Probably a cost reduction measure of Playmobil (or just a convenience issue, not wanting to change the tool that frequently when dealing with System-X stuff).
