I bought a Rockler glue brush and it works great, just as advertised. When the glue dries, you can peel it off. Easy to clean, spreads well.
However….I was in the dollar store one day and they had Betty Crocker basting brushes….for a buck each. My curiosity got the best of me (you know where I’m going with this). I decided to do a comparison….head to head….for the title of “Best Glue Brush”. I trimmed the Betty Crocker brush so the bristles (?) are about the same length.
Rockler: Spreads great, spatula works great. Narrow, smaller bristles, easier to get into tighter places. Peeling dried glue off over the last 6 mos has caused one or two bristles to break off, but nothing drastic. Current cost at time of this review: $5.
Betty Crocker: Spreads great, no spatula. Wider brush, easier to spread on larger areas. Peeling dried glue off over the last 6 mos has not resulted in any bristles breaking off. Current cost at the dollar store: $1.
Overall, I like both brushes, so it’s a tie. Both have their strong points. I guess the moral of the story is that there are great low cost options to some woodworking accessories out there when we keep our eyes open…....just don’t brush the bar-b-que sauce on the steaks with the Betty Crocker brush after using it for glue….....unless you peel the dried glue off first. (I know, I know, but I couldn’t resist saying it). —Den
