I just gave 9 of my Brighams a nice cleaning. I have a Senior Reamer set including the nylon brushes for the shank.

I've always cleaned the shanks with Q-tips soaked in vodka. I've nevered bothered with "shank brushes".

Well after using the Q-tip treatment, I decided to haul out the shank brush and give each shank a quick "go though". I did about 4 pipe shanks and the nylon brush gathered lots of "goob". These pipes are used solely for English blends.

Question... how do you cleaned the "goob" from the bristles?

:shock: Paul

Hey Paul,

I usually use boiling hot water,dishwashing soap and a nail brush to clean those shank brushes....

Best,
D.J.

Sounds reasonable... a little surprised that the "goob" was still in there...

Thanks Dock

Use the small disposable brushes, then you don't have to worry about cleaning. They're cheap enough.
