What is the proper way to clean out a bubble buster roller? I have been using what is likely the wrong and definitley a primitive method......I torch it clean:confused: I often have the resin start to kick in the roller before I am done adjusting the work and getting things right.

I know there has to be a better way, can someone help me?

Acetone when you're done with your project, whip it around real good in the bucket then just shake it dry like your favorite pooch and hang it up.

If you forgot about the bubble buster and the resin has cured on it, just let it soak for a bit in acetone and flick the resin off with a razor blade or the tip of a small screwdriver. Pretty straight forward.
