Default Cone shaped scotchbrite deburring tool

Someone posted a pic of a modified 1" scotchbrite wheel that was used for deburring in tight places like the inside of a rib flange. I spent the better part of an hour searching for it with no luck. Can someone repost it please? Thanks!

Thereís a video on YouTube from the plane lady I think? She cuts up a 2 inch wheel into pie slices and puts them on a screw on arbor. Iím going to be trying it very soon...

It was a 2" not a 1" wheel.

From the Maule plant in Georgia, which really is much like a giant homebuilder's shop. One pass deburring of rib holes. It's folded abrasive strip on a drill mandrel. Shove it through and pull it back.

From Cleaveland Tools. This mandrel screws into a 1" cylindrical scotchbrite wheel.

There are several other options.

Been using the 1" 7A and EXL wheels for several years for deburring just about any metal part or edge. I have a straight die grinder permanently setup with the mandrel/wheel. Buy several if you are doing a lot deburring. Also works nicely on Al tubing before and after flaring. I prefer the 7A over the EXL most of the time.
