Are You Worried About TSA or the hassle of checking your tools on the plane?

TSA is usually pretty good about letting all of your items pass through their inspection if you have them packed in your checked luggage. If you’re worried about checking your beloved tools and torches on the airplane, maybe we can ease your mind a bit. Here’s what we do, and we haven’t ever had a problem with anything getting confiscated.
We put all of our supplies in Ziploc bags along with the jewelry class descriptions so that if they do check, they can see what the various items are going to be used for. The only thing we would not pack is the butane for your torch (your torch should be fine.)
Do you want to avoid the potential hassles with TSA and lugging your supplies with you on the airplane? We invite you to ship them ahead to the hotel

just make sure they arrive a day-or-two before you do!
