Brush Operating Pressures

Employ light working pressure. The “tips” of the wire or filament do the work. Every attempt should be made to avoid a wiping action, for example, working on the sides of the wire or filament. The wiping action creates additional heat and wire fatigue, thus reducing brush life, with little increase in cleaning or deburring action.

Whenever possible the full face of the brush should contact the work piece. Applying work to the edge or side of the brush will develop a wiping action, thus shortening brush life.
