I am now using a “Drill Brush” to clean up my power carvings. To remove wood fuzz, etc. It is a good cheap alternative to a “3M Roloc Bristle Disc”. See above photo.
Google “Heavy Duty Stiff Bristle Drill Brush Power Scrubber”
I got this idea while watching Andrew Daniels (FromASeed) on YouTube and Instagram. I noticed he uses a toilet brush to clean up after power carving. I am not ready to go there yet. Maybe I should try using the drill brush in my bathroom! 🙂
I looked around on Amazon and found the above Drill Brush. I have been using it for a few months. No problems. There are lots of look a likes on Amazon. I have ONLY tried the one shown here.
The bristles on this brush are pretty tough. Not to soft, not to hard. They do wear a bit when I use the brush. It leaves behind a fine red dust that I blow off with an air hose. The brush is tough. You can really scrub with it to clean up the surface. Like you can with a “3M Roloc Bristle Disc”. However, the bristles DO NOT contain an abrasive grit like a “3M Roloc Bristle Disc”.
