      Ran this response through a bit too quickly and let auto word mess it all up. Sorry about that. It should have read "Use a heavy duty dog hair COMB or PAINT brush COMB..." Yeah, you need combs. These unsuspecting tools work well, but they do take a beating... to clean out a completely messed up brush plate you might need a couple of them. Good thing, they are not expensive.
