I've seen Finger Tips available in two sizes regular and small, what size silks will each hold?

The larger one will hold a 6" square or a 9" diamond cut.

Mac,

I emailed you a silk measurements table that you can use to figure silk loads for any kind of production. Just stuff the load chamber with whatever silks are handy and then calculate what load is possible with other size silks. It can be useful.

One question Bob, what does Relative Size mean?

On the chart I sent you, you should be able to see that one 36" square silk takes the same load space as four 18" square silks or nine 18" diamond cut silks. Likewise, a 4" x 36" streamer takes the same space as a 12" square silk.

This gives you options for loads and helps you know in advance if a silk load will fit.

This is a handout I give at my silk lectures. In real life, I often use it.

Good Question!
