TSA has no problem letting me through security at LAX with my pliers. The British Airport Security, on the other hand, felt they were a threat and took them away on my return trip from London back on the April 10th. Fortunately my wire is awesome and I had a new set by the time I landed.
I suspected there would be challenges to making wire art every single day with the amount of work travel I do. Now I just need to look into planning alternatives, whatever that might be.
