Precise glue dispenser

Evening all,

Has anyone bought a glue applicator for precise jobs recently and if so where from?

Thanks in advance

David

Re: 2 tier layout

The base board and centre hole have been set like they are so I can always reach each corner without having to take things out. One option I'm thinking of is having the side walls of the upper section held into positions using dowels so they can simply be lifted and expose any 'hidden' track. My nex...

Re: 2 tier layout

Hi, I have a rectangle of 224cm wide x 277cm with a centre area for me to stand in 67cm x 181cm just right of centre (so more baseboard on 1 side). Thinking of upgrading tier running for main lines including through road, 1 bay platform, and another outer (so 4 platforms in total) utilising my card ...

2 tier layout

Hi all, After making a shelf shunting layout for my dad, its got me thinking I want to make a 2 tier layout with main line and station on the top and either a single or double slower lines winding around underneath for local or freight services.

Using bits of wood, card, printed brick paper and a bit of new flexitrack I've built a 4 tier layout - 3 x tracks and 1 x road for buses / trolleybuses. Bo...

Re: Hornby original HAA wheels replacement?

Hi all, thanks for the suggestions. After all that it was the 12mm wheels that worked after carefully drilling a little more of the hole out for the axle to site using my archimedes drill. No bouncing over the Peco points and all running smoothly. Now if anyone would like 22 mini pizza cutters they'...
