My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?

that may be the rubber dip stuff
they put on to keep them sharp and safe
(it is like the stuff you dip plier handles in)
and when you have saw blades re-sharpened
they come back with that on the teeth

i just ran it once
but it splattered like shrapnel
not a good way to remove it

so just peel it of

never heard of glue being used for that

If it’s a factory coating it’s not glue,it just peals right off.

Its a protective coating that the manufacturer puts on the router bit to protect the edge. It is supposed to be soft and easy to peal off, but if the router bit was sitting on a shelf for a wile it becomes hard and more difficult to peal off. I use a razor knife to score the coating. I start at the top of the bit and cut down being careful not to cut to deep and not to cut myself. I do this in about for different spots and then try to peal the coating off. I use the tip of the razor knife to try and pop a chunk out. hope this helps good luck.
