Rockler Glue Paddles, 3-Piece Set

For mortises, dovetails and box joints, especially those with thin pins, these glue paddles are indispensable.
Item #
96% of 100

The thin tips reach into tight spaces to spread glue evenly on all mating surfaces. Unlike brushes, they won't shed bristles, and they hold just enough glue for a thin coating without excessive squeeze-out. They are also handy for any other detail gluing application. The first two paddles have four tip widths: 1/8", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". The third paddle has two 1/2" ends: one offset like a spatula, and one with an angled end.

Note: Not for use with CA glue.

Great tool to Stick With
These paddles are a great addition to my craft room. No more sticky fingers. No more glue running over the sides of smaller pieces. No more having to fight with glue bottles.

Beats using your fingers
Very handy and better than using your finger or a piece of scrap wood. You can get into small places and they work well for scraping off wet squeeze out.

Would give TEN stars if allowed!!
...Have used metal dental scrapers/picks for 20+yrs. to facilitate delicate glue-ups of small scroll sawn wooden trinkets & keychain fobs : these little silicone rubys are just the ticket for such precision glue work WITHOUT glue residues having to be scraped off these tools via use of other tooling when done...wish Rockler would offer several other end shapes & sizes of these applicators!!

Work great
These paddles spread just the right amount of glue quickly and evenly on box joint and dovetail pins. Wish I would have had these years ago.
