Dodgy, but cheap – Booster Flux Bottle with Funnel and Needle Reviews

Pros:
You get one little squishy bottle with a glue-bottle-type cap, one inner dropper fitting, and one blunt syringe-type needle with a standard anti-needle-stick cover. Not bad for a buck!
Cons:
The dropper fitting is a press-fit, and doesn't fit properly. You'd have to glue it in place, or something. And the needle comes INSIDE the bottle, and is very tricky to get out - try using a knife to cut the mould flashing away from the inside of the bottle neck. The needle's then meant to fit onto the dropper part as it would on the end of a syringe, but the two parts don't match well at all - the needle will just drop off unless, again, you stick it in place somehow.
Other:
Bottomline:
With a bit of cutting and gluing, these bottles should make great precision oilers, flux dispensers or what-have-you. If you want something that you won't have to fiddle with for five minutes to get it to work, though, these are not for you.
