« Part 4: Demo with Matt Hutchinson Part 5 of Videos series Part 6: FastBreak Sander »

In this video, I am doing a small demo on FastCap’s Glü Bot along with Chris. FastCap is a recent new sponsor of ours and we have done a couple of videos showing off their cool stuff. This is the first!

Haha, I cringed several times at Chris’s attempt to make a butcher block with copious amounts of glue and a bench vise.

The sad part is, a few days later I went back to it and cleaned it up and the end product is really quite pretty. hahah.

You need to keep Chris AWAY from the glue. Maybe away from the shop

Ok that was painfull to watch! I was doing more than cringing. I was waiting for the bench vice to just crush that glue-up. The Glu-Bot thing looks pretty interesting though.

Ps. I loved how you wiped some glue off your finger on the underside of the bench. I swear my bench will survive a nuclear blast because of my own habit of doing the same thing.

I see why you buy glue by the gallon.

I’ve heard good things about this glue-bot. I believe your helper is a little to generous with the glue.. lol

They are a really fantastic tool, even if the video was pretty light hearted. :)

I’ve seen others use the Glu Bot and thought, that’s a clever design. Despite what others may say, I think Chris should be a regular in the shop. You never know where his out of the woodworking box ideas could lead you. One thing’s for sure, they would lead you back to the store for more glue. LOL :)

Somebody recently sent me a glubot. I’ve been trying it out and it seems to work well. The tip still manages to get clogged a little, but it’s easy to poke out.

It seems like there was a lot of struggle w/ the lid. Not just opening it, but putting it back on.
I would really like it if it had onboard storage for those extra tips. I hate having little parts for something that I’ll end up losing in a drawer somewhere.

One of the prep people managed to cross thread the lid.. it usually opens just fine. :)

What a mess he made with the glue.

I liked this presentation, Lis! The lighthearted way you guys demonstrated the project was fun and interesting. We were both smiling the entire time! I did a blog about the baby bot not too long ago. I picked one up at Lee Valley Tools and you would think I discovered butter for toast! I do some micro-gluing with letters sometimes and I loved the way this system works. Like Steve said – the teeny tip does clog up just a tad, but it does pop out easily. Probably because of the non stick material they use for it (I learned that in the video! :D ) I look forward to more presentations like this. You guys are good together. I think you two worked well together and I enjoyed watching it a lot. (I must admit – at first I saw how long it was and I thought “how are they going to keep that interesting for that long?” But you did!) Thanks for sharing it with us. It is nice to see you “live” for a change!

Nice product but way too much drama and comedy on the video. Your male partner did way too much clowning around for me. It is just a fancy glue bottle not a $1000.00 machine.
