    Anybody use these things? I do mostly residential installs and love these things. I broke my glue tote 1 and bought a glue tote 2, but the dauber broke and I can't seem to find a replacement... back to the original I guess. It seems I am the only one at my supplier that uses these things. They always have to order them for me. What do yall use?

    I used a tool tote that held glue, primer, channel locks, pipe cutters and a few other random things.

    But never a dedicated glue tote.

    Given all I use is 711 & P-90 primer, the tote would be overkill, even for me.

    Heck, my 20' trailer carries two of the primer/solvent weld totes plus an extra gallon of the primer/solvent everywhere.
    Down here in the six months of sustained 100*+ temps volitalization is a problem.
    Any plumbing supply house worth anything has the dabbers in stock.
    Or check with your irrigation supply house.
    Jeez, I carry a half a dozen dabbers too, costs me maybe $.08 each.

    duct tape glue/primer together with a piece of pipe in the middle... sometimes i get fancy and make a handle or some other randomness out of pipe fittings... put a fitting across the bottom side, so you can get the cans to lean a little, perfect for getting the last drop... still firmly attached with duct tape...

    I keep a couple of glue totes on the trailer; one for normal (711) and one for wet/dry. Around here we use both pretty regularily and it beats having a helper use the wrong primer with the wrong glue....

    Hmm, never thought of the tilting part, been duct-taping glue/primer cans together for 20 years.

    I like those blue-handled "speed daubers" Ewing has, keep a couple of extras on each truck.
