Blue silicone glue mats recently appeared in woodworking catalogs. $29.95, gulp, for a 15” x 30” mat. I hate slopped, dried glue, but really? I recently “borrowed” a BBQ non-stick grill mat from the kitchen and intentionally slopped and dripped glue on it. Dried glue popped and wiped off with little effort. Set of 5, 16” x 13”, $5 bucks!

Posted by other brothers, but it bears repeating: Magnetic, LED sewing machine lights are inexpensive and terrific for lighting shop machines. In my case, they are in use on a band saw and another on the drill press. Here is the link!

I had this same exact thought today. Then I burned some salmon on my grill for supper. Your link could not be more timely! Thanks :)

After more testing, I found dried glue peels right off burnt salmon.
