Make your own glue stopper

Keep glue applicators tips clear

I often had a problem with Testors’ precision glue tips clogging; because of that, I ran through the glue quickly. However, I found that if you cut an eraser off a pencil and stick a pushpin through the center, it works as an excellent stopper, extending the life of the tip.

The sharp part of the pin works to keep the inside of the point clear, and the eraser keeps the top sealed to further prevent clogs and wasted glue.
