Today I will be doing a review on the Coil Master Do It Yourself Kit version 2. The reason why you would want to purchase a coiling kit would be to make your own coils, in my case I didn’t have any tools laying around that would be suitable to coil builds. Instead of buying individual tools (screwdrivers, pliers, scissors, etc) I have found this kit to be suitable for all kinds of builds at a good price point. You can use the kit to build on RDAs and RTAs with no fuss at all – it’s plain simple, especially if you have made coils before for your atomizers. If you haven’t made any coils before, don’t worry I will be posting soon some tutorials on how to build on various RDAs and RTAs.
The case on this kit looks fantastic and it has slots where everything sits nice and tight, you can take the case with you everywhere since it doesn’t eat up a lot of space. You even have a few slots left where you can put some 18650 batteries or other vaping equipment. The case is padded and has a nice finish to it. The case isn’t too big, you can easily fit this into a small backpack or a shoulder bag.
The box includes the following:
- 1 x Diagonal pliers;
- 1 x Needle-nose pliers;
- 1 x Stainless steel folding scissor;
- 1 x Pen styled cross screwdriver;
- 1 x Pen styled straight screwdriver;
- 1 x Ceramic Tweezer (with the ceramic tweezer you can fire your coils while squeezing them)
- 1 x Elbow Tweezer;
- 1 x Roll of Kanthal wire (3meters, 24ga);
- 1 x Ohm meter (useful for measuring the resistance of your coils) – batteries were not included. You will need 2 AA batteries to power the ohm meter.
- 1 x Coiling Kit (Base, Coiling poles and top covers)
- 1 x small blue hex screwdriver
- 1 x silicone rubber case
- 1 x Small bag of organic cotton
As I said at the beginning of the post, you have everything you need to build your coils. The tools seem to be of good quality, I have been using this kit a lot and haven’t had any issues with any of the tools braking, Almost everything included is branded nicely with the Coil Master logo. The coiling kit includes a set of coiling poles to wrap your wire around them, the posts have the following diameters: 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 mm. The scissor is brilliant, it folds and cuts through cotton very easily, it doesn’t snag or pull your cotton. The screwdrivers are both magnetic, this is very useful especially when working with the tiny screws on the atomizers. The included ohm meter so far has proven to be accurate and I personally haven’t had any issues with misreadings.
If you have 50$ sitting around in your pocket and don’t want to spend too much on tools than this proves to be a good all around kit. The fact that you have everything organized nicely in one place when you are doing your builds is a nice thing to have for your peace of mind, you don’t have to wonder around the house to search for pliers, screwdrivers or other bits and pieces. It would have be nice if instead of the ohm meter they would offer a version of this kit with a Coil Master 521 Tab. With the 521 Tab you could easily build your atomizer right on top, measure the resistance and then test fire it, instead of putting it on your mod to test fire it.
Let me know if you would be interested in more reviews on these type of kits.
