Dental brushes

Recommended Posts

These dental brushes are great for contact cleanup with your rototool. They are nylon so not as agressive on thinner strips that wire brushes can be, but clean well and are tiny so can get into the tinier spots. They work about as well as the fiberglass contact cleaner pens, but can get into tinyier spots and don't leave small bits of fiber glass behind that I hate! Also metal brushes can leave behind a lot of scratches that are places gunk starts collecting fast.

 

few shapes to choose from. Very inexpensive.

If you find they are too tiny for your chuck or too close to a bulky chuck then try a dental bur adapter that will hold the standard 1.6mm dental shafts in a small chuck that will get then rototool chuck out of your view and light some.

btw dental burs are great as well when you need tiny grinding bits. Most that come with rorotool sets are a bit big for a lot of fine modeling work

gotta love dental tools, nail art tools, and acne tools for hobby stuff!
