A Hypodermic Needle is the best tool to apply glue between a chip, crack, under veneer or in a joint.
A funny thing happened when I was cleaning the diluted glue out of the tube and needle. I was out in the yard using my garden hose to squirt water through the tube with the needle attached and when I squeezed the trigger on the hose the needle shot out like a rocket into the yard never to be seen again!

I’ve used this method too. I buy the needles at Tractor Supply and they are throw aways. They have lots of sizes to choose from.

”the needle shot out like a rocket into the yard never to be seen again!” Is this a good thing ?
Hopefully no barefeet or children or pets find it for you .
Nice stool sample though : )

Hey Dusty56 I’m still laughing at your “Nice stool sample though :)” I just told my wife and she cracked up too!

I mowed the lawn using my Snapper Hight Vac and that lawn mower will suck up everything! Hopefully I got it. But it might be in my neighbors yard. I hope not!

Thank you! and you are very welcome!
I’m taking them to my daughter’s house tomorrow. She is going to have a them professionally finished the same color as her new cherry kitche cabinets. They use a convergent varnish. Her cabinets are to die for.

I’ll bet your veterinarian will give you a box full of different sized needles (used once) if you ask nicely. Get syringes with the Luer Lock tips and the needle won’t blow off when you put a lot of pressure on it (your veterinarian will have these as well).
