Hubbers - How do you wash your bits?

  1. frogdropping profile image83
    frogdroppingposted 8 years ago

    I always liked to wash mine by dangling them in a bucket of soapy water. I find it's easiest to do it straight away, right after using them. Makes the grass come off a lot easier.

    Nothing like dried grass stuck to them.

  8. frogdropping profile image83
    frogdroppingposted 8 years ago

    Janetta - you could try leaving your bits overnight in plain cold water. Though they will need a thorough scrubbing the day after.

    Fiery ... you think smile

      fierycjposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, Janetta says she's looking for new avenues of bit washing. That killed me. Its like saying, I'm looking for new avenues to maximize my income, or something really serious like that.

    Well, my bits wouldn't fit into a bucket.

    Some of them are about 4 feet across, and have rotating teeth that rip and tear into whatever is being drilled.

    I wash them with a high pressure hose, and sometimes have to remove stubborn particles with a wire brush.

    Here are a couple of my favourites.

    Lol, Froggie, some would think you were a wankshaft, but you aren't. smile

    However, in the English slang dictionary bits are, well, you know.

    You sometimes think in speaking with the English that you miss things, that they say things that have no meaning to Americans and they know it.
