Bug Hole Blaster

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.
