The Tube-Wringer makes squeezing that last little bit out of a tube into a fine mechanical science. The little device strangles whatever contents remain in that overpriced tube of goo you bought at the local big box – most likely at full retail – and puts it to work where it belongs.

It works a lot like those old wringers you’d see in Bugs Bunny cartoons, only this one is too small to squeeze a wascally wabbit through. Two interlocking rollers squeeze the tube tightly to push all the contents toward the front. It seems like this would be both easy to use and satisfying, knowing that you’ve actually used all there is to have.

Street pricing starts at $6.

    Now, if only it were wide enough to hold both the “a” and “b” tubes used to mix epoxy…

    That looks all and well but the same company offers an aluminum heavy duty model that squeezes the heck out of things (toothpaste, caulk, etc.)

    These work well for getting the last drop and are quite fun to use. For squishing a half used tube, there is no mechanism to keep the squished part down, unless you use a binder clip or such.

    Heck…. put me down for two! One for my toothpaste and one for the shop!

    The concept is nothing new, although this looks much more effective than other designs, but in all honesty most things in tubes I use are adhesives that get used so infrequently they’ve solidified in the tube long before I’d need to get to the last drop.

    It would be neat to have one that could hold both tubes of JB Weld at the same time so you always squeeze out a 1:1 ratio.

    Build your own “epoxy squeezer”. Simply take a 4-ish inch piece of 1/4 id pipe, cut a 3″ slot (chop-saw kerf) for the tube crimps, cross-drill a small hole in the other end for a bolt “handle”

    I guess the real question is — how long will you have to use this thing to get $6 worth of epoxy/glue/whatever out of it? A year or two, if you’re going through a tube a week (since you’ll probably only recoup a few pennies at a time)?

    For toothpaste the return is generally somewhere after you die.

    Sometimes the frugal thing to do is not buy a silly gadget.
