Just received this - has 4mm instead of 2mm
I just received this, and it seems like i have a new/different version than pictured. It looks nicer after a cleaning and the pins are longer, but it includes 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0mm bits, so i have no 2mm bit. It's not the biggest deal, but i actually do make 2mm coils from time to time.

Will be interesting to see how FT responds…the pictures show 4 bits and you received 4 bits…the specs don't list the diameters…it is only mentioned in the drop down menu of the product listing.

How to even make a video of this?

Sounds like a irritating case to fight…good luck anyway.

SKU 2675400 was my choice. Great, simple tool, imo.

Also has a nice carry case and bits ranging from 1.5mm - 4.0mm.
Woah, mama!

I looked at SKU 2675400 and SKU 2555100 before settling on this, since UD's stuff is usually decent. I pack a small kit for building when i travel, and it seemed clever to use the ends of the bits for something, and really handy for saving a bit of space.

After doing one build, i can say that:
Coiling is nice. It works well and theres really no big issues worth mentioning. I would have liked the long bottom part of the bits to be flush with the handle, but thats about it.

Building using the screwdrivers is just sad. The metal is way, way too soft. The deck i built has two screws, and i used the small 2.5mm one for undoing and tightening both. It now has surprisingly deep dents, making me think it will be worthless after less than 10 similar builds.

Overall, this should be regarded as just a coil jig with no other features. The screwdrivers are horrible and should only be used in some sort of emergency... carefully.

If UD combined the features of their coil jigs and used better materials, they could make a kickass, feature filled kit for everyone.

I knew I made the right choice when I picked the $8.55 one….I love how compact it is and how all the bits fit inside the hollow part of the body

SKU 2555100, the $8.55 - otherwise called the UD jig V3 is the best one of the lot. Only shortcoming of that one is the short coiling rods. makes coil placement a hassle.
