Bristle Discs

I was walking through our Service Department Tool Room the other day, and saw "Bristle Discs"-these are a totally new phenomema to me, and they look like they are for smoothing or taking off Paint or ?

What the heck are the best for? These were of Roloc design, and I understnad they come in 2" and up sizes-the 3M website is of no help. Do they take the place of those lava rock looking Paint Strippers? Somebody please clue me in!

Are these what you are talking about?

If so they are used to remove leftover gasket material from surfaces, or at least that's what I use them for.

That's the only thing I have found they work well with, but I guess that they would take of paint. I also use them to clean up brake caliper slide pins.

I know they will take off a layer or two of skin when you slip and hit your finger with them

there new to mee too. I see they use the rollock attachment. at our autoshop class we use the brown abrasive discs that are 3M rollock's. great for gasket removal, cleaning off rust from hubs ans such. I bought some for my die grinder and used 1 to round the corners of the windshield sunvisor center mount I made, great for that too

You don't want to use the brown cookies as there called to clean of gasket materiel off anything that the cookie particles can get into the engine. GM has announced many years ago that they were experiencing many engine bearing failures due to cookie debris in the engine. I only use these bristle type now for engine gasket cleanups.

we clean everything out after using them. mostly we use them for valve cover gasket's, head gaskets, tranny pan gaskets and water pump gaskets. anything that could get into an oil galley and not be cleaned out, we use scrapers.

which part? I personally don't use them very often for gaskets, but it's what the teacher says to use, so when I have to, I do use them for gaskets. I like them for cleaning rust off hubs, cleaning rust off and out of calipers and drums b4 turning them down, also caliper slides or floating pins, when there rough.
