defluxing brushes ? or descaling brushes ?

The little wire brushed used to clean solder joints..
I had a bunch of them, and wanta fer more..
These look like small plumber's flux brushes, but are stainless steel bristles and have smaller heads.

All I can find is the "tooth brush" style.

Your WANTED request will be better served, and seen by more people, in the Classifieds Section.

Will move it there for you.

Harbor Freight Tools has flux brushes.

I bought about 2 dozen for $2 on sale. They have metal tube handles. The bristles are not very rigid, however. About like a toothbrush.

PS: You can get a brass + stainless steel brush as part of a (pricey) kit at Radio Shack.

You buy the Harbour Frieght acid Brushes an cut them off , leaving about 3/8 inch pf bristle. They are now perfect for use.

I have a Store here in Wilmington, if you want me to purchase some and mail to you.
