Default Plane Travel with Chisel

Hi Folks:

I plan to take a short trip and will only need a carry on bag (unless I have to check a bag). I want pack my HSS skew and roughing gouge without the handles. Do you think I will be allowed to carry this on to the plane?

Thank you.

I'm going to go with no on this one...You may even find yourself in a nice room explaining the difference between a skew and gouge to some folks wondering why you have those long pointy metal things in your bag.

My wife was allowed to travel with a full respirator/gas mask earlier this year. A business trip to a chemical plant. I wonder what would have happened if she decided to wear it during the flight

If we here of "Woodturner arrested for carrying lethal weapons on plane" then we know it isn't allowed.

only blades that are allowed are disposable razors and scissors under 4" in length (which seems strange to me). You also are not permitted to take anything that can be used as a bludgeon, such as baseball bats and pool cues. So, even if you blunted the blade, they might disallow it as a bludgeon. Anyway, I think checking it is probably a wise choice.

A little old lady had her knitting needles taken away. I'm sure she was big security threat. Just about anything can be used as a weapon. I know of several items that can be used as a weapon but won't put it here.

Depends on who she sat next to on the plane.

I recently made a trip with tools. I'm glad I packed them in checked baggage as I was advised. I also took a couple of penturner drills in my carry on baggage - they didn't like that at all. Someone has a 10.5 and 12.5 set of Colt drills

Thanks for this thread, Tony, and I find the replies interesting.

I now know what not to take onboard my next flight (which I expect might be never).

I suppose it's OK to be buried with my favorite skew though.
