What is a good non-toxic solvent to get glue off tubular rims? Pedro's degreaser? I seem to remember someone using it. Others?

Yea. It's pretty nasty and not very even.

Why does it have to be non-toxic? I can think of many solvents that will handle the job, but I wouldn't want to drink any of them...

I can too, like mineral spirits. But I've set up a little gizmo where I can let em sit and spin in the stuff until it comes clean andI don't especially want it laying around. I think Gripped or Coolio did something similar...Plus I'd like to "green" if I can.

make a little glue ball

and just start to roll it over the glue bed. it will just get bigger as it goes
easy from a wheel stand or fork. It will lift up enough to get it even

+1 on the goof off with scotch brite pads but it still takes some patience and elbow grease. Even though it's citrus based it can still burn skin and the fumes are unpleasant so it's better done outside. Be very sure to thoroughly wash off the solvent with lots of soap and hot water, you don't want solvent residue left over compromising your glue job.
