I hate the idea of tossing out acid brushes after a few uses (they’re steel!) and I’ve been looking for alternatives (for the record, there aren’t any :-) so I bought these little dealios.
Long story short, they are TERRIBLE for spreading glue. They act more like a squeegee—pulling glue away from your intended target. Which brings us to what they ARE good for, and that’s scraping glue off once its skinned over.
These things are a nice plastic, they are glue resistant, and they have a nice sharp edge. PERFECT for scraping off skinned over glue. They are also easily cut/shaped to odd shapes (like molding profiles) and that comes in handy too. I find them especially useful for scraping inside of spots that are too tight for anything else—they are too soft to hurt the wood.
So… don’t buy em to spread glue. Buy em to remove glue instead! They are about $3 for a whole pack.
