I think we have another good candidate for "Shop Tips".
Cleaning carbide burrs. Good info offered.


I have an old fashioned Caustic tank, heated with air bubbling. Makes short work of anything aluminum. Just ask my cousin that wanted to clean his motorcycle parts while I was out of town. And people wonder why I lock the shop and carry the only key. He thought I should pay for replacing his parts as I did not have a sign on the side of the tank. "Hazardous when used by an Idiot".

I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!

Same cousin that left my tractor in the middle of his very muddy rice field during our rainy season with the badly cut(ruined) rear tire. But then, I've already told that story.

Thanks for taking this info and moving it Cutter.

Tommy may want to include the dead on info of how well that type cutter is with aluminum.

Now to be clear for other's benefit, I don't move anything. I only add links to an index.

Tommy ain't messing with no dead things either.
