    Coil building kit.

    So I purchased a eleaf ecr starter coil build figured I could practice on my melo before I move on to something more complex.

    So the same guy has this kit is it any good?

    Or is this one better?
    Geekvape 521 Master Kit V2 - HB Vapour

    Or is there one I'm just better off getting from overseas?
    Me being impatient I'd like to start practicing asap lol

    Hey Mate,

    Owners of the Coil Master kits rave on how good they are I don't own one.

    Below is a list of what I think are a "must have" (DIY Kit on a budget if you like):

    Kuro Coiling jigs (clone) great for starting out $5.32USD
    Ceramic Tweezers (good for strumming the coils, loosening tanks screwed too tight) $2.57USD
    Coil Winding Jig (this is my preferred tool for making coils) $1.52USD
    Wire cutters (I own these ones and they are very good quality $2.57USD
    Folding Scissors for cutting cotton $1.34USD
    Kendo Vape Cotton Gold Edition $6.71USD

    Plus you also need the wire itself 26Ga or thicker 24Ga wire is easier to start with, I prefer 26Ga.

    I estimate the total cost would be around $32NZD or $30AUD

    I would suggest to also get a ohm reader but you could use your regulated mod
    Cheap ohm meter $4.44USD

    i have coil master V3 i think,
    but i currently use the UD mini kit because of the compact size and i always have pilot vape super ecig tester on my desk for coil built.

    the new coil master mini kit seems nice.

    I've seen a few of the bits and pieces sold separate in nz maybe its just a good idea to piece it together myself instead of buy a whole kit although money is not a big problem.

    So is the v3 worth it or just overblown? I'd like to have a kit I'm not going to misplace so maybe not a mini for me I tend to lose stuff all the time lol

    I have the V2 kit from CoilMaster and love it. It's just not as portable as I'd like so for me it's not something i'd take around with me. They now have a mini kit too that's sans an ohm reader which is fine for me.

    If money is of no concern and you want a good kit the Coil Master is the way to go, the V3 I think also comes with a 521 Mini Ohm Reader which allows you to fire the coils on the the reader itself.

    The point I was making is you dont need to spend ~$80 to get started in building your own coils it can be as cheap as you like.

    I agree 1ynne this one is necessary. They are usually under $10 bought locally or a couple of bucks from FT worth every penny. Even if I had the full Coil Master kit I would want one of these tools
