It’s a daft little gimmick, hooking up a small motor and battery and taping them to a toothbrush head to make a ‘BristleBot’. Watch the video and you get the idea.
It’s a completely useless fun little home electrics project.
But it got me thinking.
Could something like this be hooked up on the front of a spare wagon to provide a better track cleaning device?
A firm brush held against the track and continually vibrating as its host wagon trundles around the track.
Would it work? Could it work? Has anyone done it?
I’ll be having a go in the next few weeks and would love to hear from anyone who has already tried it. Until then, check out these budget track cleaning tips.
