Hey all, thought I might make this topic to see if any of you guys have any bright ideas. I have a 10 page Uni assignment due in a few days time and I need to design a item from a list of choices. I have chosen to design a Paint Brush Cleaning Device.

If any of you have ideas, no matter how weird or stupid they may sound, please post them here. The machine can be automated or manual operated, with water connections, etc. If you have an idea post away!!!

Hope to hear from you clever JC members soon!

Fuel injector, fuel hose, thinners, and a roller


put brush in upright, 2 injectors spray thinner from the sides onto the bristles and a roller underneath that spins forwards & back aggrivating the brisstles, then injectors turn off after a minute and spray water to clean it off.

Cheers

Just added my idea in photoshop form

Pretty good, although for a device designed for industrial use, I'd include a return line and a fine particle filter for the thinners so that it can be pumped round and used for several cycles, and spraying water into the same vessel might not be ideal. Maybe a second chamber for a water rinse.

maybe insted of the injectors use the window washer jets and pump they have a more sharper jet which will help in cleaning it

Or how bout you do it how I got taught at trade school? Get two buckets of water, jiggle it in the first one then the same again in the second.
Works a treat and costs nothing.............

Yea, I would get top marks for feasability, but fail on originality. :D
