Well, there is a distinct possibility that this could keep me from getting it on the kitchen table when I decide to tie upstairs among the living. Now, to just decide if that is really what I want to do!

That's a great idea and thanks for sharing it. I'm going to try it out. I especially like the bodkin. Where can I get one ?

Did the spill bit once and that stuff will take the paint off a doorknob. Refinishing the table top was a 'demand job' from the wife type.

Ever refer to your own wife as "Yes Mam?''

Gets more interesting if you're married to a 'Redhead.' They write their own rules and they can change on a daily basis.

Just trust me on that one.

I like it, I too upset a bottle once. Mine was the old lacquer cement from Hillie's sometime around 79', I glued the new bottle to the lid from something like cottage cheese or the like so I couldn't upset it again.

The good news for all you spillers is that it will only have to happen once. After you make a mess like that you will never leave the lid off or loose on a bottle of head cement again. I don't use any safety precautions other than carefully removing & replacing the lid and have never spilled a second time

But that is a cool idea for those who wish to avoid your first,

Ard

My tool and cement holder is 2"x6"x3" block of packing foam. I cut holes slightly smaller than the measurement off the bottle and add a couple of rubber bands around the round bottles to hold them when turning the lids off and on. Most of my tools just stab in wherever's handy. I get a year or more before they need replacing.
These are some of the reasons I like water-based head cement. Easy clean up(though I haven't had a spill since I started using the foam) and easy to thin if I leave a lid off.
