Ever-ready glue brushes that self-clean
Whenever I have glue-ups to do, I prepare a small container of water with a piece of hardware cloth laid at the bottom. The screen edges are bent so the cloth stands off the container's bottom. When I place a used glue brush in the container, the glue runs off the bristles through the screen. Next time I need the brush, I just dry it off and it's ready to go with no dried glue clumps. At day's end, I simply rinse the container clean.—Doug Denaro, Trenton, Ill.
