    The stick makes so little mess in comparison to a tub and you can get a nice thin layer with no wastage
    I tried the copper slip stick last weekend (sorting a sticky caliper), it's brilliant, so much less mess than the tubes!

However move to other industries (concrete) for example and you will still find the older system clinging on. :|
    I went through college spelling it sulphur and our tutor would correct anyone who spelt it sulfur, but the iupac spelling is indeed sulfur. It just feels wrong. But to be fair, the iupac name for Al is aluminium yet Americans insist on calling it aluminum anyway. The difference being that's actually pronounced differently and the latter pronunciation does irk me, especially when someone British has picked up the pronunciation from Youtube or something and adopts it. :shudder:
