These do a pretty good job dispensing small amounts of CA.  I bought mine at Stew Mac.

Hi All,

I've had good success with a trick I read about on MSW some time back. One takes a needle, inserts it into the end of a dowel as a handle, then using wire cutters clip off the end off the needle creating two prongs. I made three with different sized needles, Like others I run them through a cigarette lighter to clean when they get guncked up.

And when these clog, just leave them in a closed jar with acetone overnight and they will come out like new. Experiment to see that the acetone doesn't attack the tip itself.
