DECENT wire wheel for rotary tool?

I do a lot of detail work, and work in very tight spaces. Has anyone found any 1/8th shaft cups/brushes, wire wheels that are worth a hoot? Everything I have found is WAY to soft for what I need.

What do you folks use when you can't get your 4.5 in there?

I just found a new source for such stuff, NAPA in the welding aisle.

I was burning up HF grade wire wheels in just a few minutes, but the NAPA stuff seems ot hold up much better at abrely twice the cost, LOL, $2.99 vs. $1.50.

Dunno about Dremel stuff, but I will say that I have found great wire stuff that is encapsulated in wax or the like for my drill.\

Works mint and the "wax" stays with it throughout the life of the tool, though it is not long.

Pics tomorrow if you want.

Are they twisted wire? Twisted wire last way longer:

I don't use my Dremel much. I use an air die grinder for tight spaces. I get 1/4" shaft wire brushes in various shapes from True Value hardware.

Here is what I was talking about. 1/4" stuff though, sorry. Gets in tight spots though as it does not deteriorate fast.
