I was fighting with some cold glue yesterday (I turn back the t-stat to about 50 when I’m not in the shop) and decided to turn my cursing into creativity. I had a cutoff from an old glue up, cut it to shape, and bored a two step hole in the top to perfectly fit the cap of my glue bottle. I have more glue, but this is my small go-to bottle that I refill from a larger bottle. Yes, I need to remember to close the cap, but if I forget sometime, i’ll just bore the hole out again (It doesn’t go all the way through so I can’t glue it to the benchtop by accident).

Be careful not to get any glue on that gem. :)

I was just thinking of making something like this yesterday, as I kept trying to get the last little bit from my bottle.

Thank you for posting! I did lot of gluing before the Artic Plunge and fought with a wheezing glue bottle on every joint. I am wondering if a plastic prescription drug container or cap could be incorporated to catch drips?
