Milwaukee Brush
Twist-Tuft Wire Wheel Brushes

twist brush

Milwaukee Twist-Tuft wire wheels are design for tough jobs. Each individual knot contains the same number of top-quality, high carbon tempered steel or 302 stainless steel wires that give the wheel precise balance and long life.

Milwaukee knotted construction provides high-impact action. Depending upon the application need, brushes can be furnished in either standard twist, stringer bead or full cable twist. Smaller diameter brushes are particularly design for use on high-speed air and electric tools.

Milwaukee Twist -Tuft construction is highly suited for use in the welding and steel fabrication industries. These Brushes are used in surface preparation prior to welding and brazing, and for removing remove weld scale and splatter after the welding operation.

Milwaukee Twist-Tuft brushes are also widely used in the pipeline industry. Narrow face stringer bead brushes remove bead scale after the initial joining of two sections of pipe. Wider face full cable brushes are used to clean scale on intermediate weld passes. Other brushes are specifically designed for hot and filler passes.

Heavy -duty, two-row Twist -Tufts are available. They are often ganged in multiple-section assemblies on special machines for cleaning the ID and OD of pipe.

Standard twist Twist-Tufts are used for deburring and other general purpose applications
