A grinder? Try acetone soak.

I’d try a wire wheel on an angle grinder. I use an air powerd one because it’s smaller and easier to control. I havn’t tried it on poly glue, but it works fine on yellow glue. Can’t imagine it would be any harder to remove.

Cured poly is tough to remove. About the only thing that will take it off is scraping and/or sanding. Putting a coat of wax on the clamps between usage helps make removing hardened glue easier.

I spent a long time a little while ago chipping away at the clue on my metal clamps with a scraper. Lots of elbow grease needed. Now I am sure to cover them with duct tape if there is a question of major seepage.

This isn’t what you want to hear, but, waxpaper keeps it from getting it on there.I have taped waxpaper to the glue up, then put the clamps on.Or , tape it to your clamps. Or, tape your clamps with masking tape, then tear it off later.

Get an old chisel and a real hammer, I know… never hit a chisel with a hammer but you need some force behind this one lol.
