As per Wikipedia, Every Day Carry (EDC) is defined as, “a small assortment of daily carried tools, supplies and equipment, used for the purpose of helping one handle a variety of situations starting from ordinary to catastrophic.”

While there can be something of a suvivalist overtone to EDC writings, I just see them as neat ideas for CNC projects and something a machinist ought to be carrying around in their pockets.  They’re typically little tools designed to go on your keychain or on a chain around your neck.  Here are a few to take a gander at so you get the idea:

Boker Plus Toucan Multi-Tool

Tapco Armorer’s Tool

Atwood Poltergeist

I’ve got links on a couple of those in case you’d rather just buy one.  Aren’t they neat?  If you’ve been pondering a project to make a knife, perhaps one of these EDC implements would make a simpler starting point to play around with.  Check out CNCCookbook’s Pinterest “Guy Gear” Board for a lot more ideas.  With a CNC, your imagination is really your only limit on what you can build.
