Rockler Silicone Glue Brush Aims To Be Your Last
Instead of buying a large quantity of regular glue brushes that you always end up throwing away, Rockler wants you to buy their new Silicone Glue Brush (45624), keep it, and reuse it over and over again. Their Silicone Glue Brush looks like a mini version of a silicone brush you might find in a kitchen, and if the technology works so well in the kitchen, it might be worth giving it a try in the shop.
If you let the glue dry on a regular glue brush, it is as good as gone, but according to Rockler, letting glue dry on their Silicone Glue Brush is no problem at all. Rockler says that all it takes to clean up the dried glue on their brush is to "simply riffle the bristles as you would a deck of cards". This action is all that is needed to peel of any dried glue. The brush features a 1-inch wide 1/2-inch deep group of silicone bristles on one side of the tool, and a paddle on the opposite end that is suited for detail work, or glue spreading into groves. At only $3.99, the Rockler Silicone Brush cost about the same as a pack of acid brushes, so it might be worth a try.
