I seem to end up turning alot of wood with bug holes. The bugs always leave behind gunk that I have to clean out. That usually involves scraping with a dental tool and blowing out the holes with air. Well I have found a way to make that a bit easier.
At this past year’s Rocky Mountain Woodturning Symposium, I was talking with Roper and he turned me on to this. It’s a basketball ball inflater needle, with an adapter to fit it onto my an gun. I sharpened the end of the needle, so it blows air out the end and can dig bug gunk while blowing it out. I still use a dental tool too, but this helps make the process a bit faster.
