Cleaning the Chaff Chamber


#1

I’m noticing that the pull nib to get the chaff chamber off the Bullet is starting to get rather tight, and the inside of the chaff chamber itself could use a deep cleaning. Is there a good way to get to the inside? I’ve been using a flexible bristled brush to rub in there as deep as I can but I want to try really getting it ultra clean, but I don’t want to dismantle it in a way where I can’t put it back together again.

The six metal posts that align the chaff chamber are threaded. I was able to easily unscrew mine and remove the metal cover from the chamber. Then you’ve got easy access to scrape/brush/wash/vacuum. Hope yours is as easy. - Brad

@jmacrae523 Here’s the Aillio video for maintaining the chaff collector (vs. the removable filter). Just a video that does nothing more than provide imagery of what Brad just explained.

Thanks for the info! I had no idea the metal posts were simply threaded, I thought they were riveted. Can’t wait to give this thing a nice deep scrub.
