If you’re a frequent user of thread-locking fluid, the Drip-Well is for you. Once the bottle and nozzle of your choice are in place,
you can use it for one-time application by dripping the liquid directly onto a bolt, or for multiple applications by filling up the well. The base has two mounting holes so you can fasten it right to your workbench, preventing spills, and it’s made of tough tool-grade plastic.

The Drip-Well threads will fit many common dispenser bottles, but I couldn’t find one around the shop that had the correct nozzle length to actually reach the well. Nonetheless, it will get plenty of use with 50ml Loctite bottles, and I can save the long nozzles for possible future use with other liquids.

    Not to seem to negative about this, but I don’t see myself mounting this to my bench to use it. It doesn’t seem to have any advantage over just using the bottle as it was designed for one time applications and if I need to do a lot of loctite applications I have these little plastic cups that you can get at the hobby shop super cheap that work great.

    The negatives I see is that if you mount this to a bench as it seems to be designed to do then removing the upside down bottles could be a very messy affair. It also is another thing chewing up space and getting in the way. It seems a bit pointless to me. Sorry.
