If you are steady of hand you can use a 36 grit sanding disc on a mini grinder for very quick removal, you will need to be very very careful though.

If you use one of these on a drill it should remove the majority. Wipe over with thinners first to soften any glue and then use the brush. Will not damage the tube, although if the fabric was sanded initially you will be left with a dull surface.

Used the brush today. Cleaned off all the glue in half an hour. Great bit of kit and no damage to the tubes. Wow v pleased, thanks for the advice.
