So I can’t take credit for this idea Awsum55 posted it here.

I just dressed it up a bit. A definite improvement over a set of pliers. I tagged them so hopefully I can find them on my bench

I usually buy the gallon size jugs to get around the problem you are addressing here. Plus it makes sure I have longer periods between forgetting to get glue, and finding I’m OUT. But those tops are a problem, and if you use them, that is a good work around for opening them.

I too have gone from using throw away Mustard, and Ketchup bottles to the Glue Bots. Being made from silly-cone they just about are bullet proof, I even go as far as washing them out after I empty, before refilling it. Keeps the crud and cake washed off.

That’ll work Bill! I switched to Glue Bot some time back as well for the very reason you’ve addressed with these tools :-)

Glubot is nice Bill. I like that you can squeeze the glue out in any orientation and the tip doesn’t clog easily.
