    Cleaning Solution for air pipes

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All
    Just doing a bit of cleaning on my 1.25kg roaster.
    I have pulled off the metal tubes that are attached to the fan to draw out the air during roasting.
    I'm not talking about the flexible aluminium ducting, but the solid metal fixed pipes.
    Does anyone have an idea for soaking them in to get off all the caked on oil/grim?
    Appreciated in advance.
    Greg

    Yeah, probably would work. Works on machines, so would work on roasters. Guess I dont need to make it spotless, just most of it

    A wire brush on a flexible shaft on my drill works a treat for me
