i have to repair the coil gun made in my last insructable and the barrel had hot glue in it for holding the coil in place since the coil fried under load the glue melted in the entire barrel so i have to clean it so i thought i would use the dremel to clean it then i thought the glue would clog the small sander so i made a better way to remove it and its disposable.
