Default Kr brush hoods

Does anybody know where I might be able to buy Kr brush hoods? I received my spring post tool in the mail the other day, and removing the brush hoods from my KR found the inside of one coated with solder, which I can't remove. This explains why this brush was wearing faster than the other, and getting so hot the shunt came unsoldered.

As the motor is still fairly new, if I could get some brush hoods cheaply, it would work out pretty well. An email adress for reedy would be great too.

I can't help you out with anything other than to say you can reach Reedy though this Email: [email protected] or this webpage: http://www.rc10.com/feedbackresult/forms/help_form.htm

You can't remove the solder? Have you tried a solder sucker?

Default Sure you can

Heat the hood up from the outside and wipe the inside with a rag. It will come right off. Please dont burn your self.

Thanks for the adress, I've sent an email.

Yeah, I have a solder sucker, and I've tried wiping it, but it's difficult to get inside the hoods.

I did file most of it off, then use 1000 grit sandpaper to smooth it out, and clean everything up with lysol tile cleaner, and it looks decent.
