Instructions for Use: 
  • The purpose of the wire wheel is to remove corrosion and¬†burrs, generally from metal objects¬†
  • Ensure that sleeves are well rolled, any hair/jewelry is secured, and eye protection is on
  • The wire wheel on the left is steel, and it is intended to be used on harder metals
  • The wheel on the right is brass, and is intended for softer materials.
  • If you cannot firmly hold the object while keeping fingers clear of the wheel, use vise-grips to hold the object
  • Do not force the object into the wheel, and reduce pressure if the wheel starts to slow
  • Always hold the object level or at a downwards angle, never upwards
  • Angling the object upwards risks grabbing, forcing it down and pinshing
  • Maintain awareness of the presence of the other spinning wire wheel, so that you don't accidentally touch it
  • Clean up by vacuuming any dust
