I've had good luck with this. I'm using the small tip and this allows a very precise placement of CA.

One issue has been where to put the CA. So far, I've made a small puddle of the glue on a piece of aluminum, but it tends to spread out too much. What's needed is a small 'pot' of some sort that the CA won't adhere to.

So far, I like this tool. I've never had much luck with the plastic tip extenders, they tend to clog and too much CA come out too often.

The notes say that if the tip gets clogged, simply use a Bic lighter to burn away the glue and wipe clean. The tips will not be affected by the heat.

WoW...someone took the idea and is now making money with it!!!  Looks like a great tool.  With a bit of acetone you could get one blade/applicator to last years!!! Nice find!
Here's a link for it on Amazon:

Stick one of these on a long piece of dowel and if you break a stringer after you've covered your model you can push the broken stringer back in place and use this to drop a bit of CYA on the break and you're back in business! Cheesy Wink

Got this on Amazon.

I use thin CA for some things like fuselage stringers, etc. Even though I use fine tip applicators, I have a problem with excess glue coming out. Maybe this tool will help.

Someone (Tom, maybe) suggested using the eye of a sewing needle to do much the same thing.
