This item is a really just designed to moisten stamps but it's also an excellent tool for wetting veneer tape. It won't give you the same warm and fuzzy feeling as the calendar (I think) but it's cheap and it works. I started using one of these in my shop a few years ago. It's been through the wringer and it still works like a champ. You can pick one up at your local office supply center for $4 or get it here for a bit less.
Approximately 3" in diameter.
Tip from Joe
Squeeze the sponge under the faucet a few times to get it pre-loaded with water. Then place the sponge in the plastic cup and fill it with water. To have the right amount of water in the cup, turn it upside-down and briefly press the center of the sponge with your index finger. This will squeeze out some of the water. The remaining water will be the perfect amount for wetting veneer tape.
Another Tip from Joe
To prevent mold from forming, be sure to dry the sponge when you are finished using the moistener.

This isnt so much a review as it is just a tip to easily improve this moistener. I put a couple pieces of velcro on the bottom of the moistener and then put the mating velcro pieces at the corner of my workbench so the moistener stays put when in use.
