This was a gimme from our broadband company.
The project was spreading glue on the three-piece sandwich in the middle image. the core piece has some narrow—3/4”—areas on which it’s nice to get just the right amount. I pour about 3/4 cup of TB II into a can and squirt about 7 blasts of water into it for easier spreading.
Typically I use a 1” chip-type nylon bristle brush. It does the job but if the weather’s warm and I have a pair to do—I can stack two in the vacuum bag—the brush gets choked with drying glue at the upper end of the bristles. This made cleaning it a headache.
That was not a problem with the new brush. It worked amazingly well, and the payoff was the ease of cleaning. It carried a lot, distributed it well, and sat there obediently in the can when it wasn’t called upon. I will try it two more times in the next couple days, so if my opinion changes I’ll post here.
If you’re curious to try this, you might find one for sale in the kitchen gizmo section of the store you like. I think they’re being pushed for spreading barbecue sauce.
If you have tried it, your experience is welcome here, agree or not.
