Tip Conversions: Ateco Tips and Other Brands

If you're looking to replace your old, beat up tips with a different brand, here are some basic tip conversions for similar size and styles. This is not exhaustive, and does not include all the brands, sizes, and styles on the market today; they are conversions from my old pastry tips in my toolbox that I've matched with similar size/style of current line Ateco tips, or supplied via reader tip (thanks!!). If you know of a similar shape/size/style of other brands that match up to current Ateco tips, let me know and I'll add them, too. The conversions are in a table form below and include the brands Ateco, Magic Line, Wilton, and Maripol.

I contact August Thomsen, and found that these tips have been renamed, and are the same tips.
Conversion Example:
Ateco 1B = 861.

Ateco Old 'CS' 840 Series Closed Star Ateco 0 C.S. = 840, etc.
Ateco Old 'S' 820 Series Open Star Ateco 0 S = 820, etc.
Ateco Old 'P' 800 Series Plain, Round Ateco 0 P = 800, etc.


Conversions above are from one of these:

  • Based on matching up my old pastry tips and matching them up to current line tips.
  • Based on information supplied from readers: Thanks so much for sharing to help others! We ALL appreciate it.
  • Based on antique merchandise catalogs showing older, retired numbers in detail.
