I've used this on repairing antique tables,restoring steamer trunks from the mid 1800's etc. It is sooo much easier to acurately spread wood glue than any other method I've used. I strongly recommend cleaning it after each use.

I don't often write reviews but this a great product. it spreads the glue around like a tile trowel with glue. that simply means less of a mess and better control. add to that, nothing sticks to the bristles. I left glue all over the thing for 2 days and was able to pick it off with my fingers. I used it all summer of 2013 and it still looks brand new. Highly recommended.
Clean up is not that easy.

This product is not as easy to clean up as lead to believe. I bought this set because I would always forget to clean up my acid brushes. So the first time I used this brush and spreader I purposely didn't wash off the glue thinking the glue would just peel off. Wrong!! It is a big pain to get the glue out of the "bristles" on the brush and the notches on the spreader. My technique now is to soak them in water even if the glue is dry and let them soak, then they are easy to clean. Otherwise the set works great for spreading glue.
4 and No More

I bought 4 of these brushes, 2 large and 2 small. On all 4 the brush heads came off when applying glue. I tried shimming the brush heads but that didn't work. They slide off the handles with very little effort. All 4 went in the trash. A rather expensive trial. On the flip side. the little tray and spreader work great.
Would have been a 5 except...

Would have been a 5 except that one really should not let the glue dry on the bristles. When trying to pull it free, the bristles may come loose. So, I at least place them in water ASAP. Here in AZ it is hot enough in the summer that glue dries quickly and one gets a skin in just a few minutes.
