Thread: Shop Made Band Saw Wheel Brush

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Shop Made Band Saw Wheel Brush

    I've been cutting aluminum on my HF 14" BS and the shards were building up on my lower wheel.

    The angle is 3.5" and the magnets/cups are 3/4" (I think 1/2" would work). The brush is from one of the 3-piece sets from HF. I think a toothbrush would work

    A good simple well made solution.
    Would a brush on the blade also help?
