My preferred glue, Krazy Glue, relatively cheap and available at most grocery stores/home stores/gas stations in the USA....

With the usually needed needle to clear clogs...…

I've just gone through my various project boxes and ejected no less than FIVE bottles of superglue, all of which were almost full and all had their caps bonded in place.  :banghead: :banghead:

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

have been using Bison bottles with brush for years, cut the brush at the angle so it works for fine bits and large pieces, the tubes dont get a long life with me but the brush bottles are fine

Poundland. Half a dozen tubes for £1. Use it once or twice for fixing a pot or Xmas decoration and go back two months later to find the tube solid.


And that's exactly why I advised a lady to buy the bottles rather than the tubes in Poundland yesterday. I was getting some "duct tape" and she was musing between the tubes and the bottles.

I honestly don't have a problem with the bottles. I don't use the glue direct from the bottle but I put a drop on a small lid, the green tops from milk "bottles" are great for it, and then use a needle to apply. Needle is easily cleaned in a flame.

I've come to love the brush equipped bottles, originally for the plastic fingernail beauty industry.  :thumbsup:

More control and the bottle actually seals.  :thumbsup:

I have thick and a specifically for plastic thin formula.

I also usually just make a small pool on a piece plastic it won't stick to
and a use a wire for point application.
