    Today I was at Tap plastics getting window film and they had these neat little red 1 oz. cans that are just ever so perfect to house a Carlsson rosin cake in. No more rattling about in the old Pops can now.

    That's really cool. I've been looking for something to keep my Carlsson in.

    I tried to order though, and to get them to ship I need to order 10 :(

    I just melt my carlsson down using a radiator, heated lamp, or in the summer the dash of my car, mold it into a good shape, and carry it around in an empty film canister. Give it a try.

    Well, I didn't think of it either. It's my teacher's fault.

    If you leave it in a pops' container long enough, it'll eventually fit the can perfectly . . . Mine doesn't rattle around at all any more (after about seven years melting and hardening in the container . . .)

    Does Carlsson no longer come in it's own blue plastic container?

    I think it depends on whom you buy it from, I've seen a few sites that look like they give it to you with the blue container, but I guess Bob G and other sellers don't. So I kept mine in a old Pops can in till I was at Tap and got the one I have for $0.35. And there it sits in the little red can for the rest of the winter time at least, because for the time being I've switched to Jade.

    Now that Bob G has seen this site, you can bet they'll start coming in these plastic containers. ;) I've been looking for a supplier but was unsuccessful at finding any at a reasonable price, as the rosin supplier I was using stopped providing the containers.

    What's the internal dimensions of the red (1 oz. I assume) one?

    THANKS! Bob

    The internal dimensions of the red 1 oz are: 1 1/4" tall by 1 13/32" wide.

    You might also dig these Lasons for balk with more color options.

    Cheers
    Aaron.

    Thanks for the tip, Aaron, keep an eye on your mail towards the end of the week.
