Vaping toolkit
Just wondering what people carry around with them. 

This is my basic kit which goes pretty much everywhere with me. There are a few Muji cotton pads, the blue scissors are used exclusively for cutting it - they are very sharp and I'd like them to stay that way. There are 2.5 and 3mm coilers, some (probably) 0.5mm (24g) Kanthal and a small reel of Ni200 wire. Assorted screwdrivers and Allen keys and a pair of nail clippers for wire cutting duties. The tweezers mostly get used for wicking but have been used for other purposes before now.

RE: Vaping toolkit
I never carry a kit around with me. My tools stay at home. I never loan out my tools either. I wrap around various screwdrivers from 2.0 - 3.0. I have a drill for claptons. I don't use a jig ever. I prefer cotton bacon to the Muji cootton pads but lately because I ran out of my cotton bacon I've been using the pads and they are okay - I think the cotton bacon tasted a bit better though. I have so many hex and philips and tiny screwdrivers it is laughable. I mean you get one with every atty you buy and I have a lot of attys. I have a slew of extra screws, orings, glass tubes, etc. I have a slew of drip tips because I rarely use the ones a tank or atty comes with. 

Today is my day off. I rewicked my Twisted Messes and put it on my Hcigar DNA200 with a .16 build and am vaping at 67.5 watts. I also rewicked my APO and oput it on top of my beautiful Phillipine wooden box mod - the APO is a .17 build. I have tropica - twelve monkeys - for the Twisted and dream cream - charlie's chalk dust  - for the APO.

When I re wick I check my coils, tighten down screws and use an old toothbrush to make sure my atty is clean - I run it under water. I use kanthal claptons in almost every atty I own. Tomorrow I'm gifting away two mech mods ( I have too many). I'm giving away a SMPL clone with a clone Doge 2 and an authentic stingray x with a mini velocity clone. They are going to my buddy who owns a vape store and he will pass them on to someone who appreciated them. You cannot sell a mech mod these days, lol. I could probably sell the clone attys but really - for how much? I had these up for trade here but no one seems to want them! So I will close the thread down and move on unless I get a PM tonight! 

At work I take my RTAs or RBAs on evic minis so I do not need tools. Just extra batteries and a unicorn bottle of juice. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

RE: Vaping toolkit
I used to have to work odd hours and sometimes very long ones. My record was the time I left the house on Monday and made it home on Thursday having worked for around 90 hours. 

I don't do this now as I live alone and I'm not prepared to leave the dogs more than 6 hours at a time and usually less than 4. But I didn't have the dogs them and my mindset is still to carry around 4 days of essentials. My work bag always has spare underwear, toothbrush, razor, charger, spare cells, juice and a mod or 3. And at least 4 flashlights.

Which is why my work bag (Which also contains a laptop, a camera and a 3G router) usually weighs in at 30kg (65lbs). Every time it hits 40kg (90lbs or so) I weed it out then immediately need whatever I just left at home.

In the 80's I travelled a lot around the southern bit of Africa with only a toothbrush and cash with me. This led to some tough times - these days I just don't do travelling light.

I don't lend out tools either but since most of them cost next to nothing and I have lots of them I'm usually happy to give them away.

RE: Vaping toolkit
Story of my house. Which is why everything from that toolkit goes back in there immediately after use...

I don't even open it at home outside of emergencies

RE: Vaping toolkit
Oh my god my tool kit is a mess, but I've got everything I need in it.

Mostly full of coils I wasn't happy with.

RE: Vaping toolkit
I keep my coiling tools,o rings,wire etc in the red drawer of my vape station 
In the glovebox of my van I have my old tobacco tin with some pre made 1 ohm coils for my kayfun,some cotton cut to size and rolled a small screwdriver and some nail clippers 
This is more in case of emergency than anything else Smile

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0
