    I meant to sweep the flue awhile ago but finally got around to it. Also broke open the SootEater box and gave her a "spun". Worked good. Problem is, you have to add sections (3 ft. of them) as you go or you'd have a 16' ft U in the air trying to be spun by a drill. I tried it, and boy was it silly. Anyhow, great results. Another clean sweep.

    Less than a cup of brown coffee grounds.

    It may not be a full sweep, but not bad if you took your time.

    Full sweep as you can get. That is just a bed of ash that I was to lazy to clean before I swept.
