I was surprised that you didn’t mention Waxilit in repsonse to Mark’s question about methods of dealing with squeezeout. After a joint is covered with Waxilit before glue-up, hardened squeezeout can be flicked off with a fingernail, The Waxilit itself then can be completely removed with methylated spirits.

Try FWW #232 p34 for Michael Fortune’s article. I’ve been using this stuff for about 15 years and I believe it is one of woodworking’s best kept secrets.
