Glue Bottle Replacement Cap / Bouchon de remplacement pour bouteille de colle

Une bonne nouvelle à partager !

Bricoleurs, qui n’a pas déjà perdu le bouchon d’un pot de colle ?

A good news to share !

Woodworkers, who never lost a glue bottle cap ?


Lors de ma dernière session dans l’atelier, une fois encore j’ai perdu le bouchon de mon pot de colle. Cette fois-ci, aucune recherche intensive, j’ai vite trouvé une solution : un bouchon synthétique de bouteille de vin, percé au bon diamètre pour un ajustement bien serré.

Throughout my last session in the shop, once again I lost my glue bottle cap. This time, no intensive research, I quickly found a solution : a synthetic wine bottle cork, drilled to the appropriate diameter for a tight fit.

Je ne peux peindre le bouchon en rouge pour le retracer facilement, mais en écrivant ces mots, il me vient à l’esprit d’enrouler du ruban électrique rouge (idéalement fluorescent) tout autour !

I can’t paint such cork cap red to retrieve it easily, however, writing these lines, the idea of wrapping red electric tape (ideally fluorescent ) around it just crossed my mind !

    Bonjour l’ami
    J’apprécie vraiment ton site, cette envie de partager, le plaisir que tu communiques et les “trucs” d’atelier si utiles et parfois si évidents qu’on se demande pourquoi on n’y a pas pensé avant.

    Serge, another good use for these corks. It’s probably easier to get off as well.

    Always such practical tips and hints. Enjoy this site!

  5. Good use for those synthetic corks! For coloring them, in my shop I have some large-diameter yellow heat-shrink tubing that might work, but I like your red electrical tape idea. Speaking of electrical, John Sheridan, formerly a teacher of furniture and ergonomics at SF’s Academy of Art College, wrote that he uses red wire nuts as glue bottle caps: http://www.sanfranciscowoodshop.com/a-kitchen-work-table/

    • John, using heat=shrink tubing is a great idea. I tried mine and they barely fit over the cork. Too bad 😦 Thank you for sharing it, and I keep an eye for thinner corks !

      Best,

    We have a wine here in NY called FAT FROG RED and it has a Red sin.cork I’ll send you some if you like …Russ

    • Thank you for the offer, Russ, and don’t bother sending them in. Next time I’ll cross the border I’ll look for those bottles of wine. Meanwhile, red tape will be more than enough.

      Best,
