Is there a good brush to use to apply tubular glue? I got one from Target but it seems to be done after one use. The end of the brush is all glued together.

Tooth brushes are cheap and as stevesbike said the acid flux brushes are even cheaper. All you need is some aromatic solvent (some paint thinners) to soak and clean the brush after your glue job. At $0.25 for an acid flux (soldering paste) brush they are pretty much a throwaway item.

Google "Woodstock D2026 Glue Brush Set, 50-Piece". They're about a quarter apiece delivered and one box will last a long time even if you don't bother to reuse them (I don't).

What's wrong with your little finger??....After you clean it, you can use it over and over again. It can even be used to pick your nose.

I always seem to make a mess of it with my fingers. Especially dipping out of the can.

And if you leave the glue on it, those pesky boogers don't stand a chance.

Used toothbrushes are fine.
