    Nope. It is a bottle opener. I go to a FUN paint store.

    I'd rather have a free bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.

    A bottle opener works fine for me. Ilford cannisters seem to open with much greater ease than kodaks.

    The paint store "bottle opener" in in fact a bottle opener. It is a hold over from days when paint pigments and aditives came in a seperate bottle. These were replaced with pigment in lead tubes then pre mixed colors well over a hundered years ago.

    And yet, this is a relatively "new" acquisition. Stamped on the opener is "China" and I think I got it no more than 10 years ago. Didn't scan the side that had the stamping.

    I still say it is to make it easier to have beer while painting (and thus sell more paint).

    Nevermind. I was thinking of a totally different tool.

    An easier way to solve this problem is to move to 4x5" or larger ;-)

    I worked in a hardware store and we gave away the paint can/bottle openers. What we thought was funny is even beer bottles are mostly twist off tops now but the openers havent changed in over 100 years.

    Yeah, right. Do a search for all the threads where people can't figure out how to work film holders ...

    GOOD beer doesn't come with twist-off caps anyway... So it gets used for film cassettes now.

    Beer snob. Actually Sierra Nevada does come in twist offs, and it's a damned fine beer. But if you buy the full cases of bottles, they are crimp tops. It only took three or four before I realized that.
