Product Review - Trend's Tool and Bit Cleaner.
Well let me start out by saying, I'm a changed man!! I'm the kind of person that when it comes to things like cleaning products, and the such, that's there's not much difference from one or the other. I've been cleaning my router bits, as I'm finished with them, with a product from Ashburns. We buy it by the case, at work. It's very similar to WD-40, it is a penetrating lube/cleaner. It works great on getting grease and grime off of my mechanic tools, so when I got deep into woodworking, I started cleaning my bits with the same stuff. I read Mike and others on here praise Trend's Tool and Bit Cleaner. But I figured the stuff I already had will work just as good. No reason to buy some specialty cleaner. Boy, was I wrong!! I guess cleaning bits, right after they have been used, is one thing. The sap and such hadn't had time to dry, before I cleaned it off. But I decided, when I was ordering some other things from Peachtree, and I needed a little bit more to make a decent order and came across the Trend Bit Cleaner, I figured I'd give it a try.
About a year ago I started building my own kitchen cabinets. From the advice from members here, I purchased a Freud Diablo 60 tooth blade and put on my table saw. It has never been taken off since, except for today, for the purpose of this test. So you can imagine the build up on them.
And well, after doing this review this morning, you can bet your last dollar, I'll always have some of Trends Tool and Bit cleaner at hand!! The proof is in the pictures. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got 2 more saw blades to remove and clean!! ;o)
