    Best $4.00 I've spent in awhile

    When I was at Rockler the other day I picked one of these up on a whim.

    I either use my finger to spread glue or an acid brush. If I use my finger I get glue all over myself as well as my work piece. The acid brushes always shed their bristles and I have to pick them out of the glue.

    I tried it today on a bunch of panel glue ups and I'm impressed.

    I got one too, I love it. The brush works good for glue ups on 3/4" stock, and the flat end is perfect for mortises. I haven't left it over night yet, bt it does clean up easily after 3-4 hours of drying.

    Interesting. I've got a couple of silicon bbq brushes, the smaller one I never use, may have a new use for it.

    I have now used these for over a month. I must say they work great. I let the glue dry next day just pull off the glue and the brush is new again.

    NewWoodworker.com has a great review of this tool:

    I don't have a local Rockler, but that brush is on my list.

    I've had an eye on these since they were announced. Glad to hear they are living up to the hype. They are now on my list.

    Like someone else, I added this to an order awhile back. Yep, glue pulls right off.
