When it stops coming out, go wash your hands, come back and pick the container up again, you will find enough on your clean hands to do another service. [Linked Image]

LOL @ Roger!

I usually cut the top of the bottle off. The problem then is to keep it from spreading to everything else that you carry on the truck.

It just my way but I always buy to 4 oz bottles squeeze type, open them up and look inside they never fill them up a good 1/2 below the thread so I use one to fill the other up to the brim, then tap it and add some more, always have enough and it always comes out.

rmiell, that's just great that the UL doesn't think we need a compound on the wire, but you try and tell that to an inspector when he fails your 600 amp service you worked all day to build. [Linked Image]

I also cut the top off the bottle.

It has the bonus of attracting all those loose wirenuts,staples,ground screws etc. and keeping them in 1 place. [Linked Image]
