    I have one of these. I don't use it.

    Usually use this.

    Or this.

    I need to buy backups. Transferring the coils into my RDA is where the get stretched etc. Sometimes to the point tweezers and heat won't help. Having one rod per coil would let me leave them mounted.

    What do you use?

    I use as per the picture below but am thinking about buying the coilmaster v3 kit as I like the look of the pins. They appear longer.

    I use the Kuro Coilers. Mixed set with three heads and ranging from 1.5mm to 3.5mm in diameter.

    Works a treat, and I can remove the pin to work the coil into the RDA/RTA deck.

    EDIT- also, this allows me to use a jewellers screwdriver of the same dia' to work with the coil if need be.

    The v3 kit is awesome and I just picked up the 521 Tab last week. It's a great bit of equipment... I probably didn't need the mat but I was just putting down a tea towel before than this is nicer...

    Just made a SS coil for the Serpent which is a single coil atty.
    I use that little stepped tool thingy at the front most of the time. The other tools are out of the picture.

    Crikey.
    I'm shamed.
    I've got the full range of screwdrivers, the yellow ones, the blue ones and the fancy double ended ones, and an old pair of toe nail clippers for wire cutting

    I like my yellow screwdrivers and prefer to use them. Ergonomic.

    I'm relatively new to building but whenever I start something I like to make sure that I've got all the right tools for the job.

    That way, the only reason I might fail is my own incompetence. :geek:

    I appreciate this thread was initially about coil making tools but I struggle to find an adequately sharp pair of scissors personally.

    One of my pet hates is trying to perfect your wick and tugging it when trimming it up.
    I've bought several pairs including some from craft and sewing/ embroidery places but still have found them to blunt.
    I'm going to get the sharpening stone out and sharpen the most likely pair up.

    Dissection scissors. Sharp, and fine enough to do vaping work.

    I've got a pair of surgical scissors like these. They do the job...

    Having very sharp sissors is essential for good wicking, bluntish sissors will compress the ends of your wick when you cut it.
    I use these & they are very very good: https://www.fasttech.com/p/1477408

    I can't remember, sorry Dan. I've had them a very long time. But I think it was just in a department store. They weren't fabulously expensive or anything - just labelled as hairdressers' scissors. Around 5" long.

    I'm worried you've got dissection scissors but I won't pry.
