On my recent Bonneville trip, John and I spent some time in his model room. Well, that's a good excuse to poke around some and I came across a small box full of plastic water bottle tops similar to these.

When I asked John what he used them for, his reply was, 'For CA glue'.

Beats my crappie and ancient 'glue' board' hands down. Thanks John.

Al:  As much as I would like to take credit for this idea, Trish actually thought of it.  I was using throwaway paint palets for glue when she suggested the caps.  Because she is SWMBO I immediately made the change.

Good idea. I also use the plastic lids for mixing the two part "Glazing and Spot Putty" (Bondo).

I have used similar bottle caps for that purpose for years.

I use plastic blister packaging from batteries, etc for paint mixing. Clear plastic gives a true colour, and they're freely available & disposible.

My water jar for paint brushes looks like your PVA board, Al. Decidely 'crusty'. I've been using it for
30 years though.
