Weird question here.... I use a cheap electric tooth brush to clean complex, delicate parts....carb bodies etc.
What I was wondering is if anyone has ever seen wire brush replacement heads for these? Seems like a no-brainer, would be extremely useful for cleaning small parts.

Yeah, like if it's a Colgate brand, NFW, but if it's a Dremel, way.

I think corporate looked at it, but legal had nightmare visions of foaming bottom feeding, swine ambulance chasing product liability lawyers tooling up for a massive ass probe.

Call R & D ask them why you haven't recieved your beta delrin micropore inserts. Don't they know the project time frame? Who dropped the effing ball here? get on it people. NOW!
make the call JohnnyB.

I know our legal dept. looked at it and said we'd get our ass handed to us if little missy brushed her gums to the bone with a stainless steel brush head.

But seriously....imagine being able to get into those little aluminum nooks and crannies and being able to polish them bright with a brass brush head.

JB...try the fiber brushes for your dremel, not cheap, don't last very long, but they work well, you can get them in a wheel shape or a cup shape. Can probably get brass also.

I love the smell of castor oil in the morning, but I have a Honda....

Maybe Mike can have some custom made :)

I've got the dremel stuff, still doesn't quite fit the bill. Soda blaster would mean cleaning/rinsing everything again.

I'm just being picky.

I want a Stainless Steel bristle brush that was tested on a rabbits eye to check for sharpness and penetration of the bristles.

I'd like to know why Gillette razors are sooooo damned expensive? $9 for a four pack of blades? WTF???? Gillette is one of the companies pushing for RFID tags on everything you buy - gee I wonder why they have problems with people stealing their razor blades?

The test rabbits they shave are expensive.

And Richard Gere has cornered the market on blades to shave his Gerbil collection.

does MIKEO put deoderant under the rabbits little arms? Who sniffs them? Gerbils feet are even smaller than rabbits, how do they operate the on/off buttons on electric toothbrushes?
Now I know why some people are against animal testing- what does it really prove?

I'm all in favour of testing on animals...if they didn't you'd get this type of testing done

Mike O is officially retired and could give a shit less about custom made tooth brush heads. But I don't remember seeing anything other than tooth brush bristles when I had access to seeing such things.

Great...just when Mike O. might be worth something to someone he says he's not interested :)
