Use toothpicks to clean up glue joints

Tip: Wooden toothpicks are absorbent enough to soak up excess super glue.

For example, when super-gluing a pin into a hole, or two pieces of telescoping tubing, excess super glue will be pushed to the top of the joint, leaving a small fillet between the parts.

Run a toothpick around this interface to soak up the extra glue for a truly invisible joint.
