"I love using the radials to remove ink or oxidation after adding it to my stamped impressions. In this quick video
, I use the white radials because I wanted a bit of texture as well."
These Radials are used with our Screw Mandrel. It is necessary to stack them 3-6 at a time onto the mandrel so they create a nice wide brush. You will need to stack them in the correct direction. When loading your radials on your mandrel, you will want the points of the radials to be going to the right as you are looking at them. If you look at the back of the radial, you will see the 3M logo. This logo needs to be pointing down toward the shaft of the mandrel. If you stack your radials the wrong way, they will bend back and begin to break, destroying the radial bristles.
These work great, use them all the time! I use these with a dremel. If you have never used radial wheels, I also recommend Joe's video.
Every jeweler needs these on their bench
Love being able to just pick up just enough to replenish the ones that have worn out when I need to!
