Tired of looking for you glue brush? Only to find it stuck to your work bench, or the bottom of your latest project! So was I so here’s my fix. Remove the top from a bottle of Tite Bond glue (insert your brand name)

Cut and remove the little red thingy that keeps the glue coming out when you need it to.

Insert acid brush where little red thingy used to be.

Remove section of bottle so acid brush is just submerged into glue. Reconnect top and bottom of glue bottle with appropriate…. uh…. stuff.

Now your brush will be easy to spot, has an adjustable depth and won’t end up on your work bench.

If you didn’t want to mess up the bottle, you could use marbles to raise the level of the glue after removing the thing from the thing with that other thing.

DIY, no hardening if the glue. Just keep the brush a little submerged. Serveian, good idea about the marbles but according to my wife I’ve already lost all mine….

I’ve been doing this for years now…..Remember back when you were in grade school or kindergarten, and the glue bottles you used then? Same concept as yours, just older, that’s all….:). Also…when I’m not using the glue, I have the same kind of bottle as the glue bottle, only it is filled with water, and I just place the cap and brush back on the bottle….take it out, shake it off a little, and put it back down in the glue for the next round fof glue-up on the project…...piece of cake…..
