: The cute little porcupine/hedge-hog came with the house. Always wanted one of these, but this little
: guy's quills were rotting out. So not useful anymore. I'll rebuild him with some new bristles
: and use him as a door stop.
:
: Bought a scrub brush or push broom head (don't know which it is) to replace him, but it's too
: light and moves around when you try to clean you shoe (he's got an iron belly with a rubber
: bottom). So added a length of 2" dia ABS plastic pipe. A larger brush head would have been nicer,
: but at that time, this was the biggest on that rack.
:
: Cut just high enough to hold it while the shoe is brushed clean. Especially useful for lugged sole
: shoes. Had to add another piece of pipe to the back side, as it tips over on the handle side.
:
: All screwed together with 3" deck screws, about 3 of them. Clearance holes in the ABS pipe and pilot
: hole in the brush head.
:
: All plastic, except for the screws, so it's not going to rot. Just hose it off and it's good to go again.
:
: Made several of these and have them at each door by the place mat.
:
: About $7 bucks for the brush head and the rest are from stock or left over stuff from other projects.
: Took about 20 minutes and most of that taking out and putting back the tools.
