I use these glue sticks quite often to help with the application of glue. Especially in assembling my ceiling fans but I also find them very useful in gluing down round wire into corners or dado runs. I use them in the application of liquid tape too. It gives me a nice controlled application of liquid tape. What material sticks to the picks can easily be wiped off. Package of two. The original Cyd's tool is no longer available but I have Lazor cut a similar design and replaced it with this new Lazor cut glue stick.
