I'm new here and I'm planning on making some bogotas. I can not find any street bristles but my dad is a mechanic so I can get all of the windshield wiper inserts I want (and I have access to all of the tools that I could ever possibly need). But my question is will the wiper inserts be strong enough to make picks out of.
Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think that hacksaw blades make better pick making material and windshield blades make better tension wrenches. There are some pages on this forum about making picks out of hacksaw blades.
