    Apologies if this has been asked before but I was unable to find when it had.

    I already know the rules and procedure for taking my tanks, mods etc on a plane but what are the rules regarding build gear.

    In August I will be travelling from the UK to the US. I have already previously travelled to the US when I was on stock coils but now that I build my own coils, am I able to take my Coilmaster kit with me and does this need to go in my carry on?

    Ideally I would rather not have to take a stock coil tank with me.

    Many thanks

    The only thing you could possibly run into is TSA stupidity regarding clippers or scissors. Best pack those and carryon the rest.

    Honestly it may partially depend on your TSA agent and whether or not he evaluates some of those tools as weapons. I'm thinking about the curvy, very sharp tweezers.... They're not "scissors or knives," but some of them may be evaluated as dangerous. Could check out the TSA website and/or even give them a call. I'd hate for any tools to be "lost" at the last minute as you walk through the checkpoint. And I'm kind of unclear as to how I would "classify" some of them.

    Best of luck, and hope you can carry most of it with you.

    Yeah, thinking about it. I might leave the Scissors and the Tweezers back home and probably get some in the states.

    Maybe just pack a load of cotton, pre-built coils and the ohms reader.
