    Another Tube Squeezer

    My toothpaste is in a rigid bottle so I have no need to squeeze it. But I have plenty of glues that come in tubes. All are partially full and would benefit from a way to uniformly squeeze the ends. Now I have such a tool. My hat off to Philip Davies for the inspiration.

    If you are interested, please see

    I have been doing this for years. A 3/16"x2 1/2" cotter pin with a 3/16" brass ferrule. A 16 penny nail makes a good turning tool. Reusable and tight...

    Great solution. I have too many half used silicon tub caulking tubes in either or gloss white that can benefit from your idea.

    Great idea for those with coffee cans etc full of unused hardware (quilty of same) You can of course buy plastic toothpaste tube squeeeeeeers in Dollar stores, Amazon, Walmart etc. Kidda cheepo plastic and prices are hmmmmm to YOOOOW! I kinda like old fashioned clothes pins too (push on no spring).
