Cleaning Power Carving Burs

I use CMT Formula 2050 Blade and Bit Cleaner to clean my power carving burs. It works good! I use the same stuff to clean my table saw blades. It also does a great job on them.

I soak the dirty carving burs overnight in an old pill bottle. They come out nice and clean the next day. If you do it often and don’t let things get out of hand.
