I haven't used those, but I've applied thin CA with a blunted (actually squared off) needle on a 3cc syringe so I can get the exact amount of drops I want, using the bottle it tends to squirt out at times or drip more than I want or need. I think you'll like the control you get with them.

We had some other items to order from Amazon so I went ahead ordered a set of these along with them. I'm curious as well as to how they'll work. If they stop up, I'll test them out in my acetone jar that I put the other nozzles and bushings in. But as you said, if they do stop up and I can't clean them, they're cheap enough to just chunk them in the trash.

Sorry, forgot to get back with you all, Been using these bottles for a while now, and liking it!

Wood glue - Nozzle is a bit to small, but if you need a very controlled applicator this will work great. You just have to squeeze the bottle really hard to get glue to come out. Trimming the nozzle shorter helps.

CA Thick/Medium - Works great. goo control and the CA doesn't seem to stick or dry in the nozzle.

CA thin - Good but be careful. The nozzle is almost to large for the thin CA, might try squeezing the nozzle down a bit. However I am getting better at control. I simply tip the bottle until a small beed forms and let drip where I need it. No need to squeeze the bottle. I only fill the bottle to about 1/4 full, goes a long way. Works great to get CA down into small cracks in wood pieces. CA does not stay in the nozzle. Just give it a squeeze with the bottle upright and it will blow any CA out.

Probably won't be for everybody, but so far I am liking them - oh and nothing sticks to teh bottle, the nozzle or the silicone cap. Cap has a very snug fit for an air tight seal.

Found another great use for these. They work awesome for applying mica powder. You can give the bottle a quick little squeeze and the powder will puff out, or I usually just tap the bottom of the bottle for bit more volume control. Great for doing CA and Mica powder inlays.

If your CA bottle's tip clogs all you need to do is take it off of the bottle and soak it in Acetone for a bit. (An hour or two or overnight, depending on how much CA has dried on the cap) Then dry them off, put them back on the bottle and you're good as new! I use a small Mason jar and no issues whatsoever.

I received mine about 3 weeks back and I really like them so far. I haven't got to use them a whole lot since it's been so cold here, but, they work like a charm with what little I've got to use them for. The nozzle did plug up on one using medium CA, but dropping them in my acetone jar worked great. I really like these Glenn, thanks for finding them. I found that if you hold them upright and squeeze them when finished and clearing out the CA that they don't clog up(at least so far anyway). They're wonderful for pinpointing CA and from the sounds of it, for other things as well.

Oh and you're right about the thin CA, but, I've found that if you squeeze the air out the bottle just a little bit before you turn it upside down and start applying that it gives you a little more control and the thin won't run out so quick.
