Cleaning tungsten carbide die grinder bits

Recommended Posts

Ages ago I used one on aluminium knowing it would clog, but it got the job done. Any ideas on how to unclog the bit? The aluminum has melted itself into the cutter and doesn't scrape out. Can it be dissolved in anything?

Overnight in vinegar always works for me
