DIY Moss attaching tool

Anyone who has ever tried attaching moss to the hardscape with super glue knows how messy that can be. Usually ends up with more moss and glue on the fingers then on desired place.
That's why I came up with the idea to make this tool. I have used 15cm long Pennington End Tweezers clamp for piercing, with some modifications.

First step - cut off the end of one side:

Rasp it:

Little bending:

These are self-adhesive sponges used for furniture:

Cut to the size and stick to the longer side:

Tool is finished! Let the aquascaping begin:

I am using Black Loctite 480. Other types of super glue also can be used:

Working under water is also possible.
