Good deal on glue brushes

Thought I would share this.... I was on Amazon the other day and this was on the todays deals list for $4.



https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


They are back to the regular price not but at $9 is still and decent price for 2 brushes.


I have been using them this morning and they work great. The bristles were a little long for glue so trimmed them down a bit and are just as good if not better that the small brush I got from rockler.

Next time you are by a Dollar Genital I mean General grab a couple of theirs, they are a buck a pop and you also get a silicone dish scraper to boot

I have used them for quite a while, I do trim the bristles a little shorter, sometimes I get sloppy when gluing up LOL

You guys must spread a lot more glue at one time than I do.

These "horsehair" brushed" are what I use

They are small and most important, cheap. If I forget to clean no real loss.

The silicone brushes are nice. The dried glue just falls off. The bristles in the OP do look long. I'll use horsehair brushes for epoxy and what not but not usually for wood glue.

I keep both type around. The "acid" brushes and the bristle brushes

Just throw them out when I am done.

I just grab a handful of those little flux brushes plumbers use. I think they are about a quarter a piece at the hardware store.

Don't use silicone brushes for gluing...yet. But we have several silicone kitchen utensils and they clean up with virtually no effort. Yep, go to DG. Just don't ask the price as you will get funny looks from the employees.

My wife gives sound advice. 99% sound and 1% advice.

Not sure if you can still get a deal on Ebay, but they had 100 flux brushes for $2 at one time. Bought a 1000. Last forever.

Simple and clean or throw away....

We also use the flux brushes for small spaces. Dirt cheap in boxes of one gross from several brush suppliers.

Geroge, I don't use them for gluing yet. Should have made it more clear. Silicon is a great material that cleans up easily. Wonder why they don't make windshield wipers out of the stuff? They would last forever. Any chemists here?

They do make windshield wipers from silicon. Do a search.

Never used them myself so can't say how well they work.
