    I noticed at my local JoAnn's they had a package of 4 or 6 small needle-point bottles suitable to use for glue basting. They were only $2.99. They were NOT with the glues though, they were in the next aisle over, near the X-acto knives.

    I have a similar bottle that I bought with the metal tip, but I rarely us the tip. The point on the bottle is small enough that if I am careful, it works just fine for glue basting.

    I got mine at Michael's several months ago, in the aisle with the acrylic paints. It's the first time I'd seen them at Joann's.

    Being a long time Yankee, it bugged me that I couldn't refill those very small bottles of hand sanitizer from a larger, cheap, squirt bottle. Every time I tried, no matter how careful, I'd make a mess, with the sanitizer refusing to go down the smaller bottle's throat. Believe me, I tried. Finally found a bottle in a home improvement store which sounds similar to what you found; it has a long tapered point that fits perfectly into the small bottle. Fill it up using the large bottle and squirt into the smaller one! The money spent on those small, more convenient, bottles can really add up.

    I refill the smaller bottles, too. Have one in every car door pocket.

    Sorry to sound stupid but what part of your binding do you glue? I'd never heard of it until an earlier post today.

    If they are metal I have some but found that the metal tip is really hard to keep unplugged. I bit the bullet and spent a kings ransom for tips from Sharon Schamber. They are tips that fit on Elmers Glue bottles and are plastic. Im very careful with them after hitting one with the iron!
