Hi, guys.

I love Elmer's wood glue but, it seems to me that there is a problem with the dispenser tip.
On my last trip to the USA, I bought four bottles of this glue. When I was using my first bottle during one of my projects, the dispenser did not slide over the tip and the cap was broken. I put a coin inside the cap to protect the glue from drying and contaminants.
A similar situation happened with the second bottle. This time, I pulled the dispenser off and the orange ring on the tip brake down.
In both cases, I needed to remove the cap to pour the glue in the joint making this not even and spillage prone.
I googled some information about this and it looks like this is a common problem with this brand.
Having two additional bottles in stock, It seems to me that I need to take care of the bottle's cap when the time to use them arrives. Another option is to use Titebond again but both brands are not available here. Local glues are expensive and look like the same product with different names.

Sorry I have never had this problem with any of the glues I use. I do use a brush, I pour out a bit of glue on an icecream lid and then use my brush

Do you have mustard in squeeze bottles, Alexis? The empty used ones make good dispensers. Other empty plastic containers with slender spouts are also good sources of replacement containers.

Some of the shops I`ve worked in used the plastic ketchup or mustard squeeze bottles for glue like these ones. They are common in our restaurants. I don`t know if they would be there. https://www.amazon.com/New-Star-Food...gateway&sr=8-6

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'm using a mustard bottle for Titebond Ultimate, which I buy by the gallon. Got an mt catsup one now ready to go. It's clear so you can see the glue level.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I prefer to apply glue with a brush. I bought a 100 pack of 2 oz clear plastic food cups, pour glue into it in roughly the amount I think I'll need, then brush it on. I still get squeeze out, but not big globs this way. I make picture frames often, and control of the glue is really important in the mitered corners because squeeze out stands a good chance of messing up the finish. I cut splines for strength most of the time, so the glue is just to hold the frame together until it is reinforced in some way. I have some 1 oz syringes if I want to force the glue into a crack.

I found bulk packs of 1/2 and 1 inch single use brushes on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=half+inch...ref=nb_sb_noss. I've found metal handled soldering brushes at Harbor Freight, which are about 1/4 inch wide, which gives good control when gluing up corners, so I can keep the glue away fromt he frame front. And you can also pre-glue, dry then reglue for more strength on endgrain joints.

I was going to suggest just the tops, because they fit Titebond II bottles like they were made for them. Just twist the top a bit, and it opens, no unsticking it like a regular Titebond pull cap, just a tiny dot of dried glue very easy to remove. Don't know if the would fit Elmers, because never used it.

Either way, I think it will answer all your problems. Hopefully.

If the top does not fit what about using the Titebond bottle?

Seldom use a brush, except maybe in tight places. If I use something to spread glue, I have found a well used playing card does the job nicely. Hold it so fingers are on the back. After use, you can either toss it, or let it dry, and use it again later. Works for me.

Keep my tight bond III bottles turned upside down after I wipe the tips off. Seems to work for me. Otherwise the mustard and ketchup bottles are great. Just make sure you keep the hotdogs and hamburger out of the shop. ��
