Shop-made Glue Dispenser

By: Erich Lage
This little set up will help keep the glue up process nice and tidy

w233 005f01 Spreading glue on a lot of parts means working quickly. I used to pour a puddle of glue on a scrap of cardboard and dip into it with a brush. That works fine for small projects, but it gets messy when the brush starts to tack up and stick to the cardboard. I decided to control the chaos by making the glue station you see in the photo above. It all starts with a collection of used dessert cups. I save these and used them for glue and epoxy applications. W233 005a01 The station has two holes in an easy to clean plastic laminate top, one to hold the glue that I’m using at the moment. The other is for water to set the brush in so I don’t have to wash it right away. W233 005a01 d02 Shallow grooves routed in the sides make good hand grips. W233 005a01 d01 The holes in the station are sized to support the lip of the cups. The lip on the cups hold them in place. When the glue dries, you can often pop it out and reuse the cup.
