I just don't get it
Posted November 20, 2013
I bought the 5 piece set based on all of the positive reviews and figured that I would be pitching my old acid brushes, paper cups, and notched metal spreader.....boy was I wrong. First off, the brush does not work as well as my old acid brushes. True, I "tune" the acid brushes by trimming the bristles and crimping the ferrel to keep the bristles from shedding. Next, the glue tray is pretty good, but needs to be washed and thoroughly cleaned in order for little bits of dried glue from getting into the next job. I prefer my one cent paper "bathroom" cups as they just go in the trash after each job.....less to clean up and a better start to the next glue-up. The spreader works fairly well, but not well as my finely notched metal spreader and the metal spreader is easier to clean if you don't wait hours to try to clean it. Strangely, I find that I use the scraper quite often and it does a good job. I gave a three star rating because I like the scraper otherwise it would have been a two star. One final thought on this product is that it may be better utilized in a shop with running water. I do not have running water in my shop so my cleanup needs to be done with minimal water or use disposable items.

I bought this stuff because I needed to make the free shipping cut-off. Man-oh-man, did I luck out! I got the glue set on August 31, just like the tracking said I would, and used that neat brush on a glue-up today , September 1st. What a difference from those dang little shedding acid brushes I've been using all these years! Plus, I used less glue, got a tighter bond for it, and had almost zero squeeze out to clean up. I've been all over the world, and am not very easy to impress . . . I'm impressed by this gluing system and will probably get the roller and some of the smaller brushes, too. Thanks Rockler, "ya done good!"

I purchased both the 5-piece kit and the mini glue brushes. I think they work great! The only problem I had is that the ends kept coming off. I corrected this by using a small amount of two part epoxy on the ends to attach the silicone tips on. It worked great!
