I have taken my Jb3 with me on Jetblue. BUT it depends on the mood of the TSA agent.
Worst they can do is make u check it. Goodluck.

You'll be fine. Like others have said the worst they will do is make you check it. I travel all the time for work and bring what look to be bomb making materials on flights on a regular basis. I work for a data storage company and fly with a micro sized tool kit along with all sorts of PCB's and wiring harnesses. Although I am flagged by TSA as a 'heighten risk' so I'm always the guy getting the extra security screening you see as you walk through the metal detectors.

+1 I've gotten the extra screening a few times for ethernet cables and a small firewall.

if the company is purchasing his ticket from a corporate account, then its probably that given the type of industry he is in or after the first time he got searched and found all those goodies, they felt he poses a risk in their eyes...only things i can think of..
