tip sizes in Greweling's Chocolates & Confections

Several of Greweling's recipes call for the use of a round piping tip. I'm not familiar with what sizing system he's using. When he says to use a "no. [integer] round tip", what does the [integer] correspond to in millimeters or inches? For example, what is the diameter of a no. 3 round tip used by Greweling?

Actually each company that makes tips seems to size them differently so a No.3 Ateco and a No.3 Wilton aren't going to be the same. Does he specify brand anywhere in the book?

 

These are the Ateco tips.

Thanks for the reply, @Kerry Beal. I don't believe he does. I was hoping someone on this forum would know.

Bet he doesn't use Wilton - so I'd go with Ateco.
