hey guys, just a quick one on Elmer's glue stick. It works great and I use it all the time, but you need to put it on the glass directly (no tape) and you need to reapply it every time.
It can be washed with just water, so it is not a big deal. 
Also, when you use glue, you can lower the temperature to 55 degrees and wait until it dries before you start printing (which usually takes less then a minute if bed is warm)

He said that he will email everybody about it; in the meantime here is a quick summary: He tried using the Elmer's Washable School Glue Stick on the heated Kapton bed on that printer. It didn't work, and he will look into how to remove the glue from the bed. He put a note on the bed warning folks to not use it.
