    See a very rough video of it working here.

    What size are your tap spindles in the US?

    Would it work for you?

    I have tested this hundreds of times. The spindle in the demo video was old and dirty when I first cleaned it. They come up like new after a few runs through the "Spindeze" spindle cleaner. Once the bonnet and spindle are clean, with the right waterproof grease, the tap works like new.

    Sure, you could use your wire brush to come up with the same outcome....but does it fit neatly in your washer box?

    Your thoughts? All feedback is good feedback, as long as you don't use it for cleaning rats, I'm happy!
    Hey Bill, I really liked that rat grooming idea. Who knows you might find there's a market for that application.

    Ours are nearly all the same so it will work well here. What are your most common diameters?

    Okay we call those faucet or valve stems. They vary in size depending on Manufacturer and application.

    That there newfangled device combs rat hair. With the brush extended you insert the head of the rat through the hole and pull it down as far as possible. Then retract the brush so the device slides back off the rat's head without mussing the newly groomed hair. Then you let your freshly coiffed rat loose to make the sewers a little more stylish!

    (You should put a warning on the device to wear good leather gloves in case the rat doesn't like the unfamiliar grooming technique.

    Congrats on the new device. Thanks but I don't want one. I just kill the rats.

    It's proving to be very difficult without using oil. We have a new design that is cheap and simple and only has one bearing, without oil. Warthog's patent is old and questionable as oil has been used to control rotation for many years in other devices.

    We want to design our nozzle so it does not need to be serviced for at least 12-18 months, like the RR nozzle.

    We are using another system but it has been put on the backburner until the new range of nozzles have been released next month. It's only been 4 years in the making...on and off!
    I would like one with better time between service; seems like I'm always tearing one down for something. Also, with the oil, rotation speed varies a lot with water temp. I wonder about a friction disk clutch pack, like a motorcyle clutch, with an adjustable spring tension.

    it slides over the jetter hose end when not in use on the reel to prevent somone from stealing the hose and unwinding it off the reel. the wire brush locks, bites into the hose. you release the wire brush and remove the lock.

    Maybe HE doesn't know what it is (or could be), and he's hoping
    someone here will come up with a good idea he can run with.

    It's an invention in need of a purpose.








    Just kiddin Bill, I'm sure you will tell us when the time is right.
