I hope that this is not out of line but I have a question. Has anybody here ever used the CUBE 2 tip tool? If so, how does one know which is the dime shaper?

A lot of reviewers said the same thing.
"The manufacturer needs to stamp the size so you can see/feel it in a dimly lit Pool Room."

***You could ID the Nickel side and put a "dimple" on every corner with a punch & hammer.
That way you could feel that the dime is smooth and the nickel is dimpled.

BTW: The Dime is more concave (rounder) then the Nickel.

You could just put a dime or nickel in the grinder spot on the cube.

I still laugh everytime I see someone pondering nickel or dime radius.

You could just buy a Williard dime or nickel shape, which ever you prefer ... No confusion .. you only have one .. and cheap too ... best tip shaper I have ever used as well.

Just a suggestion.

Here here. Truth be told I have switched to hard pressed Triangles and shape my tip once every other month, if that, but the last forever is the best I have ever used.

This one looks like a real dandy! -- Kind of like the Swiss army knife of tip shapers.

This is a complete tip reconditioning tool and only 20 bucks.

This....i very seldom use mine but when I do I just feel the hole and immediately know whether its the dime or nickle radius.

I've always been partial to the ultimate tool tip, but they moved to plastic from metal and I noticed that the burnisher part does not work with tips 12.5mm or under.
