Topic tags/keywords: glue spreader

When your done with a foam brush pull the foam off and the plastic under the foam makes a great spreader for glue and it comes with its own handle. Works great on strips 1” and under.

I save the handles and use them for dowels. My mother taught me waste not want not, to put it lightly. She was so cheep she could sit on a penny and Lincoln would burp. Now with this tip, I will use the foam brush, then spread glue and then use it for a dowel. OK can we do something with the package it came in;)

I actually like using the foam brush as a spreader when doing larger laminating, like the 80” bench top laminates. The foam seems to even the spread nicely and was easy to control, IMO. If it got too saturated, I’d just grab another brush.
