    using ''will''

    Hello,

    I would like to know is it correct to use ''will'' twice in the same sentence :
    ''I will give it to you when I will find it.''
    Maybe it is just enough to say:
    ''I will give it to you when I find it.''

    Any suggestions...

    We don't use "will" following "when" in this kind of sentence.

    I will give it to you when I find it.
    He will pay you when he has some money.
    They will go to the cinema when it stops raining.

    As you can see, the first half of the sentence requires the future tense, the second half uses the present tense.
