For my project, I made a multipurpose tool for the ISS, which contains a wire cutter, a wire stripper, a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, and a phillips-head screwdriver. I know about most of these tools because my dad uses them to fix things around the house; on the ISS, this tool could be used to do electrical work and repair hardware. It has the body of pliers, with philips-head and flathead screwdrivers on the bottom of the grips. The wire strippers are in the top-corner of the handles and the wire cutters are in the center, where the two handles meet. The grip is tapered to fit in your hand, and I added a circle to one of the handles, so when you are not using it, you can just swing it to the back of your knuckles, and use your hands without the tool floating away. With all these tools combined into one, an astronaut could pull wires out, cut them to the right lengths, and them wires all at the same time.
