Your home, office, or studio contains plenty of tubes that need every last drop squeezed out. However, we often get questions about what a new customer can use his or her Tube-Wringer on.
The very short answer is that you can use your Tube-Wringer on any tube that is up to 2 ⅞” wide. Additionally, it’s a multi-use tool, so you can use it on one tube and switch it to another very easily.
Here are five things on which you can use a Tube-Wringer
Many of our customers use their Tube-Wringers to squeeze every last drop out of common household items like toothpaste, lotion, diaper cream, ointment, icing, and more. You can clean your Tube-Wringer between uses to switch from a common item like toothpaste to a food item like icing. However, we usually suggest that you keep one Tube-Wringer for home use and another for a studio or office setting.
2. Paint tubes
Many painters across the world use the Gill Mechanical Tube-Wringer to get the most out of expensive or hard-to-find paints. Artists often work on a tight budget and getting every drop out of paint tubes may be a vital part of your budget. We are glad to help! We have been contacted by artists who have used their Tube-Wringers since the 70s and 80s and they often share that their tool is still going strong!
3. Sample packs
This is a new one to us. We had an inquiry on social media asking if the Tube-Wringer can be used on sample packs and we tried it. The answer is, yes!
4. Paper of any weight
Many crafters and artists use their Tube-Wringer to crimp paper as part of a project. The results are always fun and beautiful!
Crimping wire is useful for all kinds of purposes. Our clients run the range of everyone from Jewelers to DIYers. We have a customer who made a fascinating video about crimping wire for microphones and have customers who have taken photos of their wire and metal crimping projects for lovely jewelry.
