You can click on "My Info", scroll down close to the bottom and from there you can adjust your time zone accordingly!

I have found American tip numbers are standard, but do not correlate with Australian or UK numbers.

I personally wouldn't worry about it. If it visually looks OK- I would guess you're on the right track.

You can get on the Wilton site and look at their tips and see if they are similar.

dont worry about the time thingy...I cant get it right either....we are 6 hours ahead of the east coast, I think 7 from central time, and 8 from west I think. so I have no idea what time it goes by... or how to get the time right...its 420 PM here right now... AND GERMANY SETS OUR CLOCKS BACK TONIGHT...the states do it next weekend! I am too confused!

I have some older Wiltons and Marpols that don't have the same numbers as the newer Wiltons, so I understand your concern.

My best suggestion off the top of my head is to look up the tip number on the Wilton site and see if the cut of yours match before you begin a project.

If it's a character pan that you'll fill in with stars, virtually any open star tip will work; it will just take longer with the smaller openings.

Whitout even looking at the pictures of tips you have posted , I when and buy the #233 that i will need for my teddybear.
I was so glad to have found it... ( only one store 30 minutes from where I live sells them. )
So , I took a look again at the tips picture ans guess what...the #233 that I bought looks more like a #27... icon_mad.gif So I will have to go back to the store icon_cry.gif

Oh well...I will have to lern to be more carefull ! loll !

( But before going to the store , I looked to see if my mom's tips where ok...yes they are.. )
