Most glues don't stick well to metal. What kind of glue? I'd just use a finger nail or a kitchen plastic scrub pad with goofoff or goobegone or something similar.

Kelly,

When I got some titebond glue in the "teeth" of my K-bodys I used a razor blade on the body of the bar near the "teeth", got under the glue and it peeled back off the teeth.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

I had that issue before, now I use wax paper to wrap around the metal shaft of my clamps if I think the glue is going to get on them; it also protects against the black staining to the wood that happens when the metal touches the glue and wood.

I keep an OLD nasty, worthless 1/8" chisel on hand, just for this purpose. Titebond just loves to stick to bessey rails. *L*. I'll keep a fair at best edge on the chisel. Provides a bit of heft, yet easy to use and does a good job of bringing up the glue....a butter knife with abit of an edge on it would work just as well....

I think once I get them cleaned up I might spray TopCote on then.

I just don't get glue on my clamps ... or wipe it off right away ...

Hi Kelly - I assume you got a bunch on there or you wouldn't be asking. You didn't say what kind of glue so I am going to assume water based wood glue, ie. Titebond or similar. The Franklin website says that hot water will soften their Titebond products. Urethane based, about all you can do is scrape from what I have been able to find.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm says I...

a protective barrier between the clamp and the glue? Something like topcoat..as mentioned, paste wax, wd40....interesting idea...might just have to do a lil spar-a-menting...

thanks Kelly..
