If you're using them for fishing kits, Sewing machine thread bobbins can be used to spool the line onto, they'll fit inside (depending on the bottle/bobbin, the bobbin may need rubbing down a little)

Has anyone successfully used them for meths? Because .....

.......just had a go - easy to make but I wanted to put meths in it and it immediately leaked. I ensured the bottom cap was on tight and repeated the attempt. So far as I can tell it is the join.

I sanded both flanges and used superglue - and I made sure there was a continuous bead all the way round the flange before gluing together (or perhaps should say, 'thought I did'). Would a different type of adhesive be better to help give a 'meths'-tight joint?

So - as I say - anyone successfully used them for meths?
 
Not quite the same thing I know, but I've used one for toothpaste for quite a while with no ill effects.

I'd imagine meths etc would find even the very smallest hole and seep through and I personally wouldn't try to use a capsule for my fuel.

These are great, you could even put a divider in the middle and have a double ended one. Nice find!
