Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to a tool device or assembly or combination, and more particularly to a tool device or assembly or combination including a number of tool elements or tool members pivotally or rotatably received or engaged in a carrier housing for forming a compact folding or receiving structure and for allowing much more tool elements or tool members to be easily carried and operated by the user.

2. Description of the Prior Art

Typical tool devices or assemblies or combinations comprise a number of tool elements or tool members pivotally or rotatably attached or mounted or secured to a carrier housing with a pivot shaft or axle and foldable and receivable into a receiving or engaging chamber or compartment of the carrier housing in a compact folding or receiving structure.

For example, U.S. Pat. No. 4,759,645 to Kuo, U.S. Pat. No. 5,421,180 to Rojdev, U.S. Pat. No. 5,791,211 to Bondhus et al., U.S. Pat. No. 6,298,756 to Anderson et al., and U.S. Pat.
