Tip of the Week

In the days of Dan'l Boone and Davy Crockett, a defurring tool was a Bowie knife, or similar hunting accoutrement. (How do you think they made those coonskin caps?) Today, in tamer times, a defurring tool is a machine used to remove the fuzzies (small pieces of wood)left behind from the high volume sanders during the manufacture of wooden furniture or from the caustic chemical in your power washer to clean your house. A 3M or Scotch Brite type of pad or an Osborn brush on an orbital grinder are the most popular choices for removing the fuzzies created by caustic chemicals. No matter what, you are in for a lot of work.
