Forum rules


If your thread or post disappears - read the rules again - no warnings or explanations will be given when threads or posts are deleted.

The following requirements must be followed when advertising personal antique radio / TV / audio / phono items (such as discussed in the forums here) for sale in the classifieds forum:

  • TITLE--Titles must START with: FS (when selling) or WTB (when wanting to buy) or Trade or Free at the beginning of the title.
  • PRICE--FS posts must have an "asking" price and offers may be sent by PM. Are you parting something out? ... price each major part (not things like screws and nuts)
  • LOCATION--There must be a location somewhere in the ad or the members profile (City & State or Zip Code are the minimum requirement). This includes WTB ads.
  • Discussion -- This is NOT a discussion forum. If you're not buying or supplying or suggesting a relevant solution, don't post - send a Private Message. Comments on pricing will be deleted.
  • Ads are limited to two per day, and may not be bumped sooner than 7 days after the last post to the thread.
  • No outside sales links are allowed other than to pictures of actual items being sold. No links allowed to eBay, Craigslist etc.
  • First to post to an item for sale stating "I WILL TAKE IT" it is first in line. Subsequent claims will be followed in the order they are posted. Claims to "Take it" can be conditional on unknowns such as shipping costs.
  • Any "PM sent" posts without posting a reason for the PM will be deleted as they are meaningless to anyone else reading the thread.
  • Once a deal is made, edit the title to say so and the thread will be locked

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.
