    I got a coil Winding jig for free as part of a large vape order. I use it to push the decks out of stubborn RDA's so I don't mar the deck with a screwdriver.

    I got the coilmaster kit. I use most of the tools except for the meter and needle nose pliers. I use one of my mods to check ohms and to pulse.

    I got pliers cutters and a small screwdriver set(various sizes all labeled) from the dollar store and also had extra tweezers and such around the house. I bought a ohm meter but its not as accurate as my mod so i always double check it on there.

    only tools you need in my opinion: good pair of toothless needle nose pliers, sharp pair of scissors, good pair of flush cutters, 3mm and 2.5mm presicion screwdrivers, ball bearing fishing swivels, a cheap drill, accurate ohm reader, ceramic tweazers and a home made stand for my swivels and my drill

    I got a Coil Master kit when I started. I thought $30 shipped was a good deal. Only thing I haven't used is the cotton. I always use the Tab 521 meter on a new build, and sometimes use the 521 to pulse, depending on wire.

    I spoent like $8 on a coil Master coiling set from FT.
    V3? It will wind both ways...

    A good investemnt for me. Doubt if I could do parallel coils without it.

    V4 is the last one I got as a backup.

    I picked up one of those a few years ago at a b&m. Still find it very handy and use it often.

    Its a little harder but you can make parallel coils with the coil master coil jig. I've made a few parallels with it.
