    Best coil building kit available?

    Hi All

    I would like to get some serious winding gear, but have some key requirements.

    1. Must include a build station that measures ohms and can fire up coils.
    2. Must have great pliers and side cutters.

    Has anyone found a kit that at least ticks these boxes?

    Regards
    Blonski

    The Coil Master DIY Kit V3 and Geekvape 512 Master Kit V2 are two good starting spots for all things coil winding mate.

    DIY Kit V3 for sure if you want the building station that can fire. I wouldn't say the pliers a nd flush cutters are "great" though.

    Cutters are inexpensive things to buy on eBay or GearBest etc. If you want really good flush side cutters you need to be paying quite a bit for them. For what the included ones do, they do it adequately.

    I managed to put together my own DIY kit with only what I need for a fraction of the cost of the kits.

    If I was to get a kit would be the Coil Master V3.

    A tip even if you get a kit I highly recommend adding a Coil Winding rod I use this most of the time.

    I have collected the pieces that I need as I need them... for far less cost that the packaged kits.. ok some of those cheap coil winding jigs from FT are really cheap and poorly made.. the coil master winding jig IS the better buy https://www.fasttech.com/products/0/...re-coil-winder but as chris said the one I use the most really is https://www.fasttech.com/products/30...or-rebuildable get two !

    What is a cat's favourite colour? Purrrrrrrple !

    I'd recommend the Coil Master v4 instead. It has 2 wire feed holes so you can wind the coil in either direction. Also has a case so you can store the bits together.

    I do agree on the 2nd tool, it's a must have.

    dont go ape on a bazillion of items in a case but a kit is still probably cheaper.

    what i use nowadays as a purely RDA user;
    coiling rod - coiled by hand for larger hybrid wires
    angled ceramic tweezer
    fine tip tweezer (for wicking)
    screwdriver set
    wire cutter - invest on the best, although mine just came from a kit
    needle nosed pliers

    for RTA - get a tweezer that has those circular grips in the centre for opening stubborn tanks.
    coil winders for small round wires if you aim for neat contact coils

    wires measured on mods though i do have a geekvape 521 tab
