Glue-cap puller for tired hands
My fingers don’t have the strength they used to, and I sometimes struggle to open glue bottles after they sit for a few days. This little cap puller is the answer. I drilled a 5⁄8-in. hole in a piece of thin plywood and made a couple of bandsaw cuts to fashion this simple device. It slips under the cap and gives me all the leverage I need. I stuck a magnet in the back to hang it where I store glue.
