While gluing up two halves of a flute blank recently, the snout of my glue bottle was wider than the surface, so glue ran off both edges. As I soon discovered, at such times you don't need separate glue bottles for narrow beads. Simply place tape over the glue-bottle nozzle to get just the bead you need.
