Sometimes getting out the big bottle of glue for a very small job is a real pain. One of the problems is the need to apply a very small amount of glue. Not possible with the size of the large bottle glue cap and the lack of control of the quantity that comes out.
What to do?
Here is a quick tip and solution for you.
Purchase a set of Plastic Glue Syringes for under $5.00. Put your most common and favorite glue types in one or more glue syringes and label them. These syringes will provide the accuracy for applying the glue to exactly where you want it, pin-point-application, and in the amount that is required.
Each syringe has a rubber (black) plunger tip and a snap cap for the dispensing end. The glue will not dry up in time. I have had glue in the syringes for a number of years and have refilled the syringes numerous times with no problems.
You can see the fine bead that can be dispensed.
Anyone else have a super gluing trick you would like to share?
OK, some of you have asked where I purchased the syringes.
They are from a Canadian supplier ... go to ... http://www.busybeetools.com
They are listed as ... Glue Syringes 5pcs Set ... Model # B2991.
As of today the price was reduced from $4.99 CDN to $2.99.
Hope this helps.
