    I thought some people might find this item interesting. I personally wouldn't get it but I thought it'd be something cool to share with you guys.

    I have one of those, or one very similar. Doesn't work very well on tough buildup. Also its surface area is really tiny so it might take hours to clean a piece well.

    Used to dream about getting a magnetic stirrer to clean glass pieces. Doing it by hand with pbw or iso isn't a big enough chore to really need one.

    yup. they just modified the idea from an aquarium magnetic scrubber and shrunk the design.

    I have a big one for my 55g tank. but that will never do shit for the hard to reach perks.

    basically a clever novelty item that will almost work... if you have a piece big enough to need it where you can get it inside right? no small mouth pieced or 14mm male joints thats for sure.

    or am I mistaken?

    You're right. I used it to try and clean around the ice pinches on a tall ehle tube I have. Not impressed, a pain to navigate the scrubber around, and certainly wouldn't work in today's work of 14mm DI oil rigs. Novelty is a good word for it.

    iso+salt is all I need, then again I don't combust.

    I clean often enough to save on salt and just use iso.

    and a drop of BCCE in anything im vaping flowers through.
