That is great! You should use a brass bruch or one of the new stiff nylon brushes! *Never Stainless! I prefer the brass. As far as cleaning the brass brush when it gets dirty I use CRC *Non-Flamable Brake and parts cleaner. They make both types flamable and non-flamable! But do not get it under your rings, watches on your skin. If you do wash it emediatley. Or best to wear chemical resistant gloves. I just spray the brush with it and the grime runs off. I then rinse it off with hot tap water and let it dry.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
