Tip of the Day – Pun Intended!

paint-bottle-tipsI had an aha moment today! This may not be news to all of you, but I am pretty certain there are others like me out there who just don’t know.

I have several tips for squeeze bottles that I use on paints and glues. For glues I usually want the smallest opening. Most of the time I look at the tips and struggle to figure out which is the smallest. In the closeup picture above it is easy to tell which one is larger than the other. In actual size, however, it is more difficult. But today as I was looking at the tips, I noticed that they each had different markings on them, I realized that the number of rings correlated to the size of the opening.  One ring is the smallest opening and 4 rings is the largest opening. Duh! Why have I not made this connection before! This is going to make it so much easier for me!

  1. I have drawing pens that have this kind of demarcation to show pen tip size, but I didn’t know that other utensils also had a similar kind of way to show their tip size. Thank you for sharing!
