    Cleaning Edger

    Hello! I have three MEI EZ Fit edgers and two 7Es. I am pretty familiar with how to clean 7Es having used them for years. My EZ Fits I can't really find a good way to get them clean. I can't just drown everything in alcohol. I'm just wondering if anyone has a go-to product they use to clean the cutting chamber of a dry edger? I've heard of using Green Cleaner on other equipment, but I don't want to just start using whatever. Anyone else have an EZ Fit? Anyone else like keeping their edgers squeaky clean?

    Wire brush or hard bristled paint brush and vacuum. I’ve had the EZFit for two years and that is all I do. The milling action reduces the amount of swarf build up compared to the 7E.
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    Forgot about the window. Lens cleaner is all you need to see the chamber. Mine is the NBL, and I need the camera on a few occasions to monitor the process.

    Do you get tools from Mei or is there anywhere to get off brand tools?

    MEI. We tried several brands and found that MEI is more consistent.
