Is it just me, or are Titebond glue nozzles the stupidest thing ever invented? And no, this didn’t seem all that important until while holding a ridiulous number of pieces together with one hand and trying to open the bottle with the other, and then realizing that it was patially plugged, then going crazy…........and throwing the bottle across the shop, and making a really nasty remark, that I realized that many of the HONEYBEAR” nozzle type lids fit on the TB bottles. Whew, glad to have that out of my system…....... ;-j

I pour my glue into ketchup squeeze bottles and apply it that way. :-)

I know the feeling and have done the same thing. I always have a coffee can of water and a sponge handy to wipe off excess glue and I always clean the tips of my glue bottles at the same time. I have not thrown a bottle of glue in a along time!!! Lol

The nozzles are not as good now that they are improved.

Go ahead and rant Joe. My feelings about titebond nozzles exactly. I suggest you drop the titebond and start using hot hide glue and/or cold hide glue unless you need waterproofing.
