Topic tags/keywords: question

I have been looking for empty applicator bottles of Titebond or one has a similar tip to Titebonds’.
Does anyone know a place to sell empty spare bottles?

I just need a few of those bottles.

i get mustard/ketchup bottles at wally world
they have wide mouth openings to fill easier
just a round tip
cut as you like

if you don’t clean them from time to time
you can blow the top off by squeezing to hard

pull the spring out of an electric wire nut
for a cap

Start saving old dish washing liquid bottles. Or buy condiment bottles as suggested. Walmart, dollar store, arts and craft stores like Michaels….

Thanks for your comment, @patron and @dhazelton

I kind of liked how the tip of Tite-bond is made in particular.
So my idea is that, if I had some spare bottles, I want put some other glue in the bottle.

Dishwashing liquid has those same pull up tops. A lot of shampoos and conditioners do too. I don’t think you’ll find a top with a long slot in it like the glue, though. Go to a dollar store and look around.

Thank you for the link @bondogaposis

They don’t ship to my location.
I think I can get those bottles here in Japan.

The empty condiment bottles I’ve bought at my local grocery store for a dollar are absolutely terrible. I also bought a glue roller bottle on Amazon and it was trash. I just use actual mustard bottles that have been emptied and cleaned.

That tip jambs up unless you clean it often and is a pain to clean. Had to call Titebond and they sent me several replacements. Swicted back to old standard squeeze bottles.

This is what I use and it is so easy to squeeze out the clue and cap it. It also very easy to clean out any glue in the neck of the cap.

I did this because I was tired of cleaning the dried glue from the hard to get to top and not easy to squeeze the glue out. I have several of the above bottles and tried it and I have been using them ever since.
