3M wire brush used for gasket prep

I saw on one of the many gasket posts, where someone posted a picture of a wire 3M brush that works as an attachment to a drill.  I searched several of the gasket posts but couldn't find the picture that I was looking for.

If that poster or someone else could post it, I would really appreciate.  I have a friend who works at 3M and they have a company store.  He is replacing my gasket also, so he can buy the brush at a big discount.

    This is the one you want.  I've used one to install Rutland's on all four of my eggs.  The small's factory gasket finally gave up and I just replaced it last night.



    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!

    FWIW the last time I replaced my gasket I did it while the egg was still warm and 95% of the gunk came off with a scrapper with almost no effort. I just gave it a quick brush after scraping  then some acetone and I was good to go.

    +1 on Hungry _Joe, but then I went a little further, and put fine sandpaper on a block, and smoothed everything down.

    +1  Come to think of it I may have done the same thing, doing it warm was 100% easier then cold.

    Guys thanks so much for all the comments and especially the picture.  I posted it yesterday afternoon and then didn't have a chance to get on until this morning, and there was my answer.

    This is what makes this forum so great.
