Does anyone make a holder for Tamiya thin glue, so you can't tip it over? I just did it again

Since I switched to Tamiya Extra Thin from Modelmaster,I have not had the problwm,I thought that bottle was much harder to knock over,and I have tried.

But I have seen some solutions,some place the bottle in a hollowed out hockey puck,or glue the bottle to jar lid or can top.

Been there ... done that!

Packing foam solution ó a wad of tape slapped onto the bottom for good measure.

HTH.

Great idea! Would work equally well with round bottles like Tenax-7R, or Testors Liquid cement, maybe even with Tamiya's Thick adhesive and those skads of Microscale liquids.

LOL!!!

And if I put enough of the Punji Sticks in the stand, my clumsy ham fists canít get anywhere near the bottle!

what about just squishing some blue tack, or silly putty or something like that on the bottom of the jar?

another great KISS idea, and cheap, or silly putty. I have all that around for masking camo

I just knocked over my square bottle of tamiya extra thin as well, at least it's 40% off from Hobby Lobby with a coupon, I managed to put another nice stain on my hobby mat.

Plus not to mention the contact high was pretty stellar.

I've lost a couple of bottles of extra-thin that way. Have been training myself to screw the cap down as soon as I set it down. Still not doing it habitually, but it's already saved me at least two more bottles of cement.

Good habit ó also prevents evaporation.

I've been trying to learn how to get the top on one handed while I hold the model in one hand, the glue applicator in the other hand and get the top slightly on to slow down evaporation and spillage. Oh wait that's 3 hands!!!

Brian's trick with blu tac would solve that easily. For my part, I find that bottle sits still enough to screw the cap on with one hand sufficiently to minimize the risk if I do knock it over.
