Default Trinity Comm Pen

Hello,

I bouirght one of these comm pens with the fibregalss tip. Wasnt really any instructions so i have a few questions.

Is it really as dangerous as it is writen over the pen should i be super careful?
How is the best way to use it? (I had a small go and it didnt seem to do much).

All Help greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Matt

Generally I use mine to just take off the glaze on my brushes inbetween runs then just reseat the brushes at 2 volts for about a min or so.You can put a piece of tape around the brissles a little ways down to keep the tip from spreading out to much,mine is in a little plastic holder that screws on and out so I don't really need the tape.

Justwatch out for the fiberglass strands. Thats why you should put tape all the way around so you dont get a nasty sliver.

If you want to save a ton of money go to Walmart and look in the Auto section with the touch up paints and there should be a 3M Nic Sander. Same exact thing as the Trinity item and it comes with I think 3 refills and sells for 2.99 or there abouts.
