Cleaning a J-roller

Spud Spikes Potato Nails

Hugh Foster writes:

Everyone who uses J-rollers to apply veneer or plastic laminates finds sooner or later that the roller fills up with cement enough that it no longer provides a suitably flat "rolling action." Rather than dip the roller in solvent, which dries out its bearings as well as has both you and the atmosphere breathing more harmful fumes than necessary, you can clean the roller quite nicely on a disc grinder.

The trick is to find the right spot on your grinder so the roller spins slowly enough for the cement to come off. Not only is this better for the roller than solvent dipping, but also the technique will help to keep your disc grinder clean as the rubber elements in the cement help to clear burned in wood resin from the abrasive. Be sure to wear your safety gasses!
