Spinning nasty glowheads with sandpaper.

Let's step it up a bit. Take a trashed out Bee crankcase and bore a 1/8" or so hole in bottom where dead center cylinder bore falls and secure a bolt/lock nut in hole that chucks into drill. Now glow heads can be sandpapered with impunity and dirty cylinder grooves can be spun clean using cotton parcel bailing twine.

i use a long machine screw with a piece of rubber hose between two washers and a nut, tighten nut to compress rubber to hold cylinder and chuck bottom of screw into drill.
