does anyone have an idea on how to remove glue from clamping pads, the pads are sticking to a project when glue has dried,and won’t scrap off, I used to have a bottle of glue remover, but cannot find it, will vinegar soften glue enough to scrap it off? what works best for you?
thanks

could a person put Blue painters tape or waxed paper on the pads before a person does a glue job – this should correct this problem

You could try jamming a thin, sharp putty knife in between and prying a little.

A related question. Is it possible to remove dried glue (Titebond II) from my favorite T-shirt?

Smitty, if/when you get it removed, maybe put some duct tape on the pads for the next time.

Brandon, in my experience, not without leaving a hole.

Again… a heat gun. That glue softens and “let’s go” at 150*. It’s come right off with no messy solvents or anything!

I also use a wire brush on my air die/angle grinder to remove the glue from my clamp bars…

I did wax them, but not every time, I know I should have, but you get in a hurry and forget.
