We all know the problem: you are glueing something, and the moment you don't use your hot glue gun, glue leaks out of the nozzle. That's a waste off glue that you can't use anymore.
The reason for this leaking problem is: grafity. The solution: point the nozzle upwards!
Then I invented this simple, cheap and money-saving stand.
Step 1: Get the materials
For this project you will need:
- a small bottle
- the hot glue gun
- a funnel
- a small pipe
- a thick and a thin rubber band
- a biro
You have all this materials at home, so it won't cost you anything!
Step 2: Pour the sand in the bottle
You have to aggravate to bottle so it won't fall over.
Use the funnel to pour the sand into the bottle.
Step 3: Stick the pipe in the bottle
You have to stick the small pipe into the bottle because the hole of the bottle is to wide for the biro. Let the pipe lean against the edge the bottle mouth.
Step 4: Glue the mouth of the bottle
You can glue the mouth so the pipe can't move and if you lock up the sand it can't stream out if you accidentally push down the bottle. Hold the bottle upside down to see if it is complete shut.
Step 5: Attache the biro to the gun
Use the rubber bands to attache the biro to the gun. fold the thick rubber band 3 times and put is with the biro over the gun. you cann use the thin rubber band to keep the biro right-angled.
the rubber bands are verry handy because you can remove them without damadge!
Step 6: Finished
Now you are done. You can use your hot glue gun without leaking gleu!
Thank you for using this instuctable, I hope you liked it and have a good time with the other projects.
