    Medical Syringes for a "Mini-Caulking Gun

    Last night I wanted to fill a long seam along two surfaces almost perpendicular to each other. I remembered I had a box full of of used medical syringes (I have this terrible habit of not throwing things away).

    So I used a few and it was very easy, fast, and accurate to apply the putty. I use Tamiya Putty (Basic Type) which dries somewhat fast so I have to work fast.

    Photo 1 shows all I need to do this. Photo 2 shows extracting the needle from the needle hub for a fine application of putty. Photo 3 shows cutting off the end of the barrel where the hub threads in, for a medium bead. Photo 4 shows the used (dried) syringe ready to toss out.

    Cost for anyone that has these is free! Just be careful and dispose of per your local regulations.
