Has anyone else heard of these or used them?

I found them at Hobby Lobby and bought a pack of the green ones, which have less adhesive hold than the blue ones. Apparently they were intended for use in dentistry, but they now market them to a wider variety of consumers including us modelers. The green ones are plenty sticky and can probably solve lots of small-parts handling problems.

Very nice tip bud. I use some similar to these but I have to order them and wait for them to be delivered. Nice I can go to Hobby Lobby and get them now. Thanks for sharing.

I've been curious how these products and other similar ones actually work. The stick adhesive would have to be much weaker than the initial stick of the glue you're using.

 

Let us know how they do.
