Abrasive-grit impregnated nylon-filament cleaning brushes from Laser Tools

The traditional wire brush works well for cleaning and removing corrosion, but Laser Tools claims it has brought the wire brush into the 21st century.

This set of five nylon-filament brushes (part number 8133) are impregnated with abrasive grit and allow the easy removal of rust or paint, according to the company.

It adds they are ideal for deburring and finishing — the abrasive filaments offer a cleaning action on the side of the brush as well as straight-on.

Fitted with a quick-chuck, 6mm shank, the set includes circular brushes (75mm & 100mm) to reach into grooves and right angles, a 24mm end brush, a 50mm cup brush for use on flat surfaces and a 100mm split brush for curved or uneven surfaces.

They are non-sparking, meaning that they will not rust and are safer to handle than a conventional wire brush.
