hi

http://lumberjocks.com/tyskkvinna/blog/30913

after watching this silly video i went ahead and bought this glue bot…hands down a very good desision.

stop ..get your visa out and buy. you will not be sorry

i did not know i had a glue problem untill i got this.. i always had time to pick at the tip of my glue bottle with a finishing nail to clear the head.

with this glu bot you can get the glue out without tipping it and just a squeeze. the plastic that it is made from the glue will not set.

i have only used the regular sive bot so far but bought both sizes and all the extras.

its a five star here and no i do not get anything to post this.

bob. happy gluer

I had one a long while back and it worked well, but I ended up having to toss it after glue dried up in it from being in storage too long. I may grab another few.
Especially the small one.

I agree. I got one after the video too and once you use it a bit, it is clear why the design works so well. I am also a happy customer.

I have a regular one and a small one. I used the regular one a lot
for a couple of years. It developed a crack in the side which
I put some tape on it. It still works but not as well.

I think it would have held up if I had kept it topped up and
thrown out glue that was thickening up inside it.

So I recommend keeping Glu-Bot topped up with fresh glue.

Fast cap, to my knowledge came out with these about ten years ago. A distributer gave me a couple of them. I tried them and they then went straight to the trash can. One of the silliest things I ve ever seen. JB

wow cabmaker i am surprized tnat you did not like it. you must have a better system.

anyway i have only had mine for two projects. but so far it has been great.

i feel alittle bad recommending something that some of you would feel is silly. So i did alittle research and found another video for anyone considering buying this.

We have a couple bottles. The reason I like them is because the cost is less over a period of time. The regular bottles I used always ended up with bad tips after excessive usage. The glue bot sells new tips in a pack of 5 for a dollar or two. I don’t have to buy new glue bottles every few months anymore. So we like them for longevity reasons.

I bought a case of the plastic condiment bottles and caps at Sams. I have 12 of them and have used 2 in 5 years. They work great. I had the ones from fas cap. Had issues with the tips. The condiment bottles work so much nicer for me. bob

Bob, that’s what I’ve been using.
I get mine from walmart for $.97 each.
I like them because they’re the clear ones that have the cap attached.

Another thing I do I learned from andy rae’s building drawers dvd; in it, he had glue in a small glass jar and instead of squirting the glue on the joints with the bottle, he dips the brush in and paints it on. Genius!
I use a small salsa jar. Works great!
