      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Micro Stix Adhesive Tip Applicator

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.
