Made these guys today. 40 cal, 45 cal, 50 cal and a 62 cal.
When you get a chance, I would like to learn how you made them. They look darn useful.
Oh man. I could use those!
Started off with 1” dia Navel Brass turned to whatever dia you want then drill thru for tap drill size for a Stainless Steel screw then drill about 3/8 deep for the bristles then tap for thread and part off. Lock tite screw inserted inside of body. Buy a brush with the type of bristles you like and cut to length and epoxy them in.
They might help scrub a notched breech also.
Yep ought to get notched ones squeaky clean.
Kansas Kid, Thanks for the instructions.
Thanks for your post. If you are planning to offer brushes for sale, I hope you get a LOT of orders.
I only know of one other individual offering brushes of that style for cleaning the breechface of our rifles so there's not a whole lot of competition for the market. A buddy gave me one of his a few years ago and I've found it to be an incredibly effective part of my cleaning process.
Thanks, I’m considering it. I have been using a similar generic small brush along with my barrel washer made from a small bug sprayer. Only need two or three wiping patches and bore / breech face are spotless.

M R pur-T Good!
I'm gonna tray modern brass casing with the primer hole drilled, and instead of tapping the brass, just JB weld in the screw, plus the bristles.
That’s another thought. I made another @ .37 using a brass ramrod tip that came out real nice.
Now That is a super idea, Thanks for sharing.
Very nice! Good ideas in this thread.
I remember when TOW sold them in 8/32 and 10/32 threads. Looked and not any more I am glad I still have 8-9 each of them. I will have to remember to keep better care of them now as they were expendable.
I believe Dixie and Log Cabin Shop still sell them.
Dixie and Log Cabin still list the small dia steel/bronze bristled ones in the 8 and 10 size screw.
Thanks I will be placing an order for both. These work not HC/PC but they work and I will keep using.
Dixie had the 8/32's I have some on the way. threads don't make a big deal as I have range rods in both.
Muzzleloader Builders Supply also sells them. They work as long as you clean them after use or the metal will corrode away. They also work well for turning a patch against the breech face. I buy two or three at a time.
Great idea! Thanks for the post
