Does anyone have a source for a decent 10-inch wood handled wire brush? It appears that after 30 years mine is shot. This seems to be yet another example of a tool that years ago required no fore thought to purchase. But today the market is riddled with Chinesium junk that the bristles fall out.

I'm not looking for a $50 Snap-on wire brush. Just something that isn't complete garbage.

Try a local welding supply house...a little stiff, but they'll work. Bob
That's a good idea, I mostly use them for welding anyway.

Agree with rwmeyer, welding supply shop, stuff from big box stores is crap.

Have a plastic handle one and a wooden handle one from welding shop, probably 10 years old and still in good shape.

Whenever I use the sparkle stick machine........................Wisea$$ :laugh:

Clean the flux off with chipping hammer, shine it up with the wire brush, if it still doesn't look good, polish it up
with the 4 1/2" angle grinder if need be. :lol:
