This is an offshoot of the "followers" thread. I thought it was interesting and needed a different topic. Every few break downs I use a Tornado brush wrapped in a Rem-Oil wipe, and follow that with a clean wool swab to get the soot out. I've never seen any serious deposits in there, so no cleaners, brushes or scrubbing. I also keep the follower clean and lightly oiled by wiping it with Rem-Oil and drying it with a rag. I'm just trying to keep it slick, clean and dry. EDIT: And dammit, no matter how many times I edit this post, the effin' innuendo potential is hilarious... What do you folks do?
