Ok, Asking for some ideas. I have a mildly rusticated pipe that I re-stained then buffed with white diamond to see what it would look like. I like how it looks but I have a decent amount of white diamond compound stuck in the valleys that I cannot get out with the buffing wheel. So I have been reduced to digging it out with a needle and it's a pain. Any easier way to do this.

I like a brush also but don't use a wire brush anymore. Bought several small rotary brushes,supposed to be horse hair. Great for cleaning rusticated and sandblasted pipes and even for buffing after applying Halcyon II or similar wax. They are small and it can be tricky to use them on some bent pipes but do a great job. It's the black bristled brush on left in this pic. Just chuck it up and go to work. Does require a 1/4" mandrel.
