Good video – thanks. I have a couple of those brushes too and I really like them – I find as well as saving on not having to buy the disposible brushes I use less glue with these too and get less squeeze out as a result.

Great review. When I first saw that Rockler was carrying those I thought it was just a gimick. Needless to say, I am a bit more convinced now that it’s no gimick. I’ve been using the acid brushes for a long time. I don’t think I’m ready to give them up quite yet, but I think that I would certainly add several of those silicone brushes to my arsenal.

As for the price of the acid brushes, I buy mine at HF when they go on sale, which is pretty muh all the time. If I use one, I try to wash it out before the glue dries, thus allowing for ore than one use. I’m like you in that I just can’t throw money in the trash. I try to get as much use out of something as I can.

Just as a heads up, I buy these at the Dollar Store for, well, a dollar. They are BBQ basting brushes. For mine, I just cut the bristles down a bit. They do work great!

Steve is preaching the word! I have done the same thing and it works great. I even let the glue dry on it and simply peeled it off. Again, it costs a dollar! It can’t be any work any worse than the Rockler model.

Just my two cents!

I have a couple of those silicone basting brushes that i use when I BBQ. I never put 2 and 2 together. Great Idea!
