3 Claims. (Cl. 15-201)
This invention concerns a wire brush chain.
The invention is directed at a chain formed with a
it.
The wire can be bent so that the brush members
will be held in any desired straight, curved or irregular
con?guration. The ridges 23 are frictionally gripped in
the groove and are held non-rotatably by the facing
edges 33 of slot 35 formed below the groove 30'. The
brush chain 108' can be used to clean any irregular, ?at
or curved surface.
As many brush members as desired may be provided
plurality of pivotable links having bristles extending out 10 in the brush chain. End members of the chain have

a pipe or other curved or irregular surface for cleaning,
removing rust, etc. In the invention, the chain is pro
vided with a ?exible handle which enables the links to be

disposed and set in a desired con?guration.
It is therefore a principal object to provide'a chain
holes 31 which can receive further pins 18 to attach
further link plates and brush members. i
The bristles may be made of wire, ?ber, plastic or
other suitable material. The shell casings 20 may be
made of plastic or metal.
