Glue is notoriously messy, but only if it winds up where it doesn't belong. Rockler's glue reservoir keeps it where it belongs: in the container, on the brush, or on your project. It does this with several clever design features. First, the lid doubles as a cradle for your glue brushes. Flip it over and attach it to the base so it's half-open, then set your brush in the cradle so excess glue drips back into the container. You can also set the lid onto the bench and prop your brush over it so drips fall into the inverted lid. The bottom of the reservoir is sloped to keep the glue pooled, and the corners are rounded so glue doesn't get trapped. When you're done, the lid seals tightly enough for short-term storage. Cleanup is quick—wet glue pours cleanly back into the bottle, and dried glue peels right off.

 Features:

  • Perfectly sized for  easy handling and a range of gluing tasks
  • Features a lid that seals for short-term storage
  • As with all Rockler silicone glue tools, cleanup is easy—wet glue washes away and dried glue peels right off
  • Curved notches on underside of lid serve as glue brush holders, and molded profile on other side locks onto box half-open or fully closed
  • Slight taper and curved bottom in reservoir keeps glue pooled for easy brush loading
  • When flipped, underside of lid can hold dabs of glue for small jobs
  • Lid (or container) is also great for mixing epoxy
  • Reservoir holds about 2 oz. of glue

Covers all the Bases
Not sure about you but I regularly need glue some small thing and I used to put the glue on waxed paper but this little product works perfectly for my needs. I can put a little glue in the container use it or put the lid on fo later and when it eventually dries the glue comes right out. It is unusually perfect.

I'm hoping this little guy is sufficiently airtight to keep its glue good for a day or so at a time when doing more extended glue-ups.

Gluing is such a hassle. I'm really excited about this.

I want a place to store glue during the project instead of having the bottle around all the time. This will also give me a place to put my brush so I quit losing it!

Can you put glue in this and it wont dry out...in other words can you leave the glue in it just like you would a glue bottle?
jeffrey on Feb 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I put glue in it about a month ago and it hasn’t dried out yet. That said, I think it will eventually. Better for short term storage
Can this glue box be used to mix epoxy?
Grady B on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have used it for 5min epoxy. Let it dry and it pops right out
What are the demensions?
Gene E on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The box is 2.5 inches square, 1.5 inches tall without lid. Or 6.4 cm square, 3.7 tall without lid. Lid adds about a 1/4 inch. overall a nice size and works well
What size is the container ?
sergio c on Jan 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I didn’t measure exactly but I think it’s about 2” x 2”. It isn’t very big, so I have to refill it everyday. But that also keeps glue waste to a minimum
How long will the glue keep in this??😱😳
Sarge on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Last night I had Tightbond glue in this as I was working a project and it stayed fresh for 5 hours of open perhaps 20% of the time. Clearly, glue would skim as it stayed open to the air. Closed, the glue seemed to remain as it is in the bottle. However, with all the airspace in this container I would not expect the glue to remain as fresh, nor nearly as long as it does in the bottle. Hours are good; can't speak for days.
What are the outside dimensions? Does the lid snap or fasten securely? I plan to keep this in my tool case for use in the field and the case may be in any possible position during transit.
Rock K on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Outside dimensions 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” x 1-3/4 tall. Inside dimensions 2-1/8” x 2-1/8” x 1-1/4” (note the bottom is somewhat curved so there is a loss of space in the bottom 3/16” due to curved sides/bottom). Lid does not “snap” in place but it’s a fairly tight friction fit and, in fact, can be a bit difficult to open. I don’t think I would hesitate to carry in tool box as you describe so long as I wasn’t carrying indelible ink sitting beside my white shirt and best/only suit. While tight, if I were transporting a liquid as thin as water (ink, alcohol, etc.) I would opt for something with a mechanical locking lid (e.g., screw lid, snap lid, etc.).
