Mixing Cups 2oz. 50 count - for epoxy, paint, stain, finishing
2oz Plastic Cups
These are the little cups you get with food samples in from Sam's Club or Costco. They are the perfect size for mixing epoxy or holding a small amount of stain or tung oil for finishing off a handle. They won't soak through and leak like dixie cups do. They don't have a wax coating to get into your epoxy. They have a nice wide top to mix and are low and with a wide bottom so they don't tip over. To mix JBWeld, I flip it over and use the bottom side.
When I'm working on a knife with small parts, I use one of these to hold the parts in place.
Once you start using them, you'll find plenty of uses for these and they cost a whopping 2 cents apiece.
I put a water bottle cap in there to provide a sense of scale. I bought a case of 2000 last time I ran out but I sure don't need that many at a time so I listed them here in packs of 50.
Tip: I use a couple of Q-tips as paint brushes to put tung oil or other stain onto my knife handles.
