Those little metal-handled bristle brushes sold as flux or acid brushes make great glue brushes. They spread the glue evenly and cost about a dime apiece. If you’re not careful where you leave the brush, though, you can wind up with a trail of unwanted glue spots on your work or your workbench. I solved that problem by taping a small rareearth magnet to my glue bottle to hold the brush there temporarily during assembly. It avoids the mess and keeps the brush handy. The brushes are also reusable if you rinse them in water when you’re done. Click to enlarge Jim Richey
