This tool sounds like a robot that’ll hunt down an attractive “associate” for you, but really the Babē-Bot from FastCap will only help you with gluing. The Babē-Bot is the 4oz baby brother of the 16oz Glü-Bot, and you might think the larger bottle would be the better choice, but I don’t use a ton of glue so refilling the smaller bottle every few days is better for me.
The bottle works by sucking glue out of the main chamber and into the smaller chamber — this action allows the bottle to work in the upright position and also to suck up excess glue.
This glue bottle also boasts some other handy features. The bottle comes with two different pour spouts: the “blade tip” makes a wide bead, and the “Yorker tip” makes a thin bead. The cap for the Babē-Bot stores on the body while you’re using it. The wide bottom keeps the bottle from tipping easily, and the opening for filling it is also plenty wide.
What I can’t figure out is the name. All over the website the little line (called a macron) is over the “e” but on the packaging it’s over the “a” — it’s just kindof weird to have the packaging wrong. The Babē-Bot sells for about $4, and replacement five-packs of tips or lids sell for $1.
