    DIY Easy-To-Use Glue Bottle (4K)

    Buying glue is cheaper in big bottles, but it's not convenient to use that way. So you can pour it into the usual bottles, but they have a tiny opening and it's slow and messy to fill them. Plus they have a small opening out, and can not usually be closed 1 handed. Finally, when the glue runs low, you have to tip and wait or shake the glue down to the opening. Here's one way around all that.

    This is a good DIY tip and I would make one if I didn't already own a Glue Bot which serves me well for the same purpose.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    I have a Glue Bot also, but I'm wondering how well a ketchup squeeze bottle (with the sphincter valve) would work for applications where you need to cover a larger area quickly. In dry climates it's really nice to get the glue spread fast.

    Exactly, a catsup bottle is very similar to this. The 1 benefit to this is you can keep it down so the glue is ready to go instantly and you don't have to wait for it to run down.
