The FastCap Babe-Bot is a smaller 4-ounce version of their popular Glu-Bot glue bottle.
It’s a refillable squeezable glue bottle with replaceable tips and wide screw-top cap. After squeezing some glue out, there’s no spillage when the bottle is returned to an upright position. (At least not in my experience.)
I chose the Babe-Bot because I work on smaller projects at a time. If you need it to hold more glue, the Glu-Bot can hold 16 ounces.
I bought mine about a month ago, from Amazon. Thus far, I’ve got no regrets. Squeezing the bottle takes a little more effort than I anticipated, but I believe it’s because I cut very little off the tip. I might widen the tip opening a little bit, as the greater flow should make it easier to squeeze out glue.
Replacement tips are readily available, as are caps. I can see myself buying a Glu-Bot in the future, and a replacement parts and tip kit ($10 via Amazon). That way I can swap out different tips. While you can swap out different tips without buying another retainer – included in that tip kit – it’s a slower process than simply swapping retainer and tip assemblies.
The cap has been doing a good job at keeping the glue from drying out, but I don’t think the seal is as good as with off-the-shelf glue bottles. Time will tell.
Price: $6 to $7
There’s not a lot more to say about the Babe-Bot glue bottle, other than to encourage you to look at some of the user reviews. It’s a nice accessory that offers more flow control than the bottle that comes with your glue.
