Might need to invest in one I use mine all the time it comes in handy when having to work in tight spots. I also like it for removing bark on sticks if the bark is real thin like hornbeam and privet hedge I use a 60 grit sanding barrel for that.

What are you trying to accomplish, stiff wire brush / sharp pointed objects, pressure washer? I know the pressure washer suggestion sounds strange, but I once saw a video of someone cleaning bark off a stick with one and it was pretty effective.

It's coming, guys, with tons-o-hand sanding - most of it here in my recliner. . . with an old blanket stretched across me, the chair and everything within arm's length. ONE of the reasons I'm working so diligently on this is because of a previous Diamond Willow cane, completed in Aug 2014. I carry this cane with me in the car and use it every step-of-the-way away from the house. I had no idea the tree specie until you guys helped me ID it . . . here, take a peek - old but still FAB cane on top, hopefully some day new FAB cane on bottom.

Now, here's the kicker . . . that FAB obviously-Diamond Willow area of this stick is only 3-4" from the bottom of the cane. But I still love it and will continue to sand-my-eyes-out until it passes inspection.

So stay tuned.
