So thats about it. Made a round manifold, slotted it with a dremel and there are a ton of burrs and whiskers on the ID of the pipe. How do i get em out?

Is it open so you could feed a piece of clothesline thru, tie a knot on end, and pull it thru?

They make bristled brushes to get them out

there pretty hard burrs from the cutoff wheel.

How deep are the burrs? If they aren't too deep you could use a conical or cylindrical burr in your dremel to remove them...they also have stones for dremel tools if I'm not mistaken. If they are fairly deep a long round file should do the trick

The problem is that the pipe is already bent into its final shape,, if i try and straighten it to use a file it may buckle. i was just in the garage fartin around and found my old brake cylinder flex hone,, has a 20" flexible shaft and 3 cutting stones,, so i guess ill pop that puppy in my drill and start reamin!!

I just left mine. None came out an if any did, they ended up at the bottom of the fermenter or bk and not in the brew itself so I have never found any...

Two manifolds (on two different mts) and over a hundred gallons and no huhu so far...

Im just worried about sharp metal particles chewing up the rotor on my pump.. but i spose a good shot of compressed air should take care of the really loose stuff
