Default Finally! Rib Deburring made easy....DIY

Take 1 inch scotchbrite wheel and cut into pie pieces. Then thread pie piece onto threaded Dremel adapter. Finally, shape scotchbrite pie piece into a cone. Then debur away......1000x faster.

Below are the links to the pictures, i couldn't figure out how to post a pic from google photos. So the link will have to do!

On my last batch I used some adhesive-backed sandpaper wrapped around a popsicle stick. This looks easier. Great tip!

Oh my god this makes me so happy I want to buy you an ice cream cone! I have literally had nightmares about deburring wing ribs that are being packaged at Van's soon.

Did you bleed on that rib? If so, doubly awesome!

Here is my tool of choice for deburring:



The groove that gets worn into the wheel is a good thing and eventually you will be above to deburr both sides of the stock with one pass. The 2" Scotchbrite wheel and mandrel for the die grinder is available at sources that sell "RV" tools.

I use the Cratex rubber abrasive kit, either the 767 or 777 in my dremel.
