Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Not sure on the paper ones. I buy the plastic touch up paint cups in the tool section.

I did use the Dollar Store paper cups for marine epoxies and glues. They worked for that. Don't do laquer.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I found that the term quart mixing cups works better.

Nice pricing compared to my supplier. But some of the reviews get you wondering. One of them said the cups were good but since change and now they're brittle. Another said the cups melt if you leave lacquer in overnight. And the ones that get the best review are $60/100 compared to my price of $70/100 and don't have 1oz markings, only 2oz markings.

I'll probably try one of them cause it's only $40 or so. If they suck they'll get a review that states it.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Please do. These are the ones where they said the old version was good, but the new version was brittle. I liked it because it comes with some lids. I rarely use them, but it's nice to have them. I've bought a couple lids from HD and used them for years.

Actually, I'll have to ask the wife, she's the one that uses them. I rarely work in the paint shop since I taught her to spray.

I did notice the ones in tgebs link mentioned activators & thinner in the title. Same price point.

I bought this about 6 months ago. Still have 50 of them. The rim breaks when I try to pull on out from being stacked, and it seems every solvent melts the plastic. Even oil based primer deformed the bottom. I will not buy again.

Not saying you're wrong, but here's the write up in the description. I'm going to purposely put lacquer thinner in one over night to see how it handles it.

Mix Cups are Solvent Resistant
Use with all the popular brands such as PPG, DuPont, SW, Sikkens, Glasurit, House of Kolor and more
The Graduated Measurments make mixing easy and accurate

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Got some clamps that are meant for the Makita track for the track saw. I have the Festool ones and needed another set to use to hold an auxiliary fence on my tablesaw. That way I don't have to pull them out of my truck every time I need to use them.

I have a couple of sets of the Rockler fence clamps. They work very well.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Couple new toys... Tools...
From complete differing ends of the precision spectrum (dependent on who's using them).
The axe is just for splitting wood at home, and was pretty cheap. The angle finder... I've been after that one for a while now too... Showed up in the local classifieds for $60
I'll see if I an put it to work on an upcoming vaulted ceiling /false beam job.

They came in today. No trouble getting them apart, squeezed em pretty good to check for brittle. No issues there. Scales in metric, ounces. Marked every oz. Scales in ratios of 1:1 1:2 1:3 1:4 all the way up to 1:8.

I put a little lacquer thinner in one & a little mineral spirits in one. They've been soaking for about 4 hours so far. No signs of breaking down. I think they'll fit our needs nicely.

Maybe all the bitch'n they got from those other cups was enough for them to scream at their manufacturer to fix the problem.

Can you take a picture of the ounce markings? That's all I really care about anyway.
