    Hello

    Does anyone know where to get some different size test tube or bottle type brushes to clean blowers and chambers in a pellet stove. See pic

    Small brushes for the fan blades and large brushes for the chambers such as air intake, exhaust chambers, ash trap chambers?

    Most hardware stores will carry them. I got mine at a Ace hardware store.

    Check out a HomeBrew store (beer & wine). The one here sells every type of brush you could think of.

    Every store I go to, I check what they have. I found a Turkey Baster Cleaning brush to be handy. Along with a couple different dryer lint trap brushes. And a baby bottle brush. I prob have 15 or so different ones. But these 3 are my go to brushes. The dryer vent brush is really nice for getting into the area with the heat exchangers. Fits between the tubes and runs all the way down to the back ash clean out area.

    Yep... The top link is the little one I prefer for cleaning the bottom part of my heat exchangers (through ash trap door)

    I was thinking homebrew was a brand store, but not google. Got a local, I'm up in Salem from time to time. I have the Harbor Freight set, but I need about 6 more inches on the 3/8 brush. Thanks

    The store in Salem NH where I got the nice long thin brush is actually called Border Brew Supply at 10 Lawrence Rd next to Jay's Aquadrics
