Re: Polyester thread instead of hemp = game changer!
 
I've been using my cordless drill for years to wind hemp (or polyester), clean and polish the bores (fine steel wool on a rod), and clean the combing of my pipes (old toothbrush), and there's nothing to it.

As I posted prior, you can wind as many threads of polyester as you like at the same time, thus reducing the time it takes to complete the job.

I imagine fishing line would be the same if you want to try it.

What's the worse that can happen? If it doesn't work to your satisfaction, take it off and try something else.
