Brown paper keeps rolling trays fresh and avoids a tough, cement situation

To get the best results when using solvent-base contact cement, Club member John Kriegshauser of Chicago, Illinois, lines his glue tray with ordinary brown paper that he has pleated to conform to the trayís shape. Even when itís soaked with solvent, the paper is stiff enough to resist clinging to the roller. And because the paperís pores are too fine to let the cement pass through, the roller tray will remain clean and suitable for future use. John also recommends covering the tray and roller or brush with an inverted cardboard box whenever youíre not actively applying cement. Cut the box down to exclude unnecessary air space; trim its edges so that it sits flush against a flat surface, and seal any seams with tape. Brought to you by: American Profile
