I bought Drillbrush for cleaning a variety of things. I tried it out to remove the fuzzies on a current project and it worked well. I have the yellow bristle attachment. It is available in a variety of course bristles.

Haha I have a sort of manual version or two of that, steel & brass wire brushes, scrubbing brush (nylon bristles) that has pretty stiff bristles, a shoe brush (was new) which is softer, couple of toothbrushes with different bristles. I do also have a variety of different types of brush & sanding bits for the dremmel :lol: :lol:

I have all of those hand tools also, including carving chisels. However, my first choice is always a power tool. That's why I own a CNC - Shopbot. In the words of Tim the Toolman Taylor "More Power" grunt, grunt grunt!! :D :D :D :D

Like all the above, it takes a variety of tools to sand the fuzzies determined by the wood, size, detail, etc.
Since no one makes just the right tool, like most shops, mine takes a bunch. :?

My first choice is an enclosed sand blaster using small grain silica sand.
My second preferred choice is a mop sander for larger areas. These remove the fuss without altering the detail.
Others for fine detail and tight corners include Dremel type tools operated with a pneumatic pen tool [similar to a dentist drill].
These include stainless steel and brass wheels, flexible finger sanding wheels, and an assortment of cutting burrs.
Last but sometimes necessary choice 'elbow grease' with a variety of items with grit or teeth [mini files], emery boards, and dental picks.

As I am certain everyone will agree, the most important and hardest tool to find is patience! :oops: :twisted:
