|Fuji’s new “SPEED THREADER” is the slickest little tool you could have. Use
it one time and you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without it in the age of
micro-guides. You can literally do it with your eyes closed in under a minute.
Looks like a bent piece of wire but you’ll be facisnated by the thought and
engineering that went into this item. Works at the bench of course, but is
SIZES - Two dimensions are needed to order the correct Tip Top. These are the "Ring" and "Tube"
The Ring measurement is the measurement of the OUTSIDE (O.D.) of the guide ring/eye/insert, just
like any guide ring is measured. This measurement is in millimeters, just as it is when measuring the
ring on any guide.
The Tube measurement is the INSIDE diameter of the tip top's tube (the part that slides over the
blank's tip). This measurement is given in 64th's of an inch. A blank with a "#5" tip, requires a #5 tube
tip top. The #5 is actually 5/64th's of an inch. A #5.5 is 5.5/64th's of an inch, etc...
Tip tops are usually called out by the ring size followed by the tube size. An "8/9" tip top for example is
an 8 ring / 9 tube. Again, this is short for "8mm O.D. guide ring / 9/64" I.D. tube".
PLEASE NOTE that Blank Manufacturers Tip specifications are "approximate". The blank should
always be physically checked with a Tip top Gauge or Caliper before ordering a tip top. if you're
ordering a blank and guides from us, we will always provide the correct tip top.
