Spray with WD as they rust for fun, even if kept inside. oO
True??


​I've got some in my electrical tool box, few years old granted but they've rusted so they're stiff now. WD40 is used to seal cast iron (which rusts in hours!) radiators if you Google it. :)

Good find. Thanks for detailed info.
I'd pester them as to when stock is back in , they've carried these for several years now, & there appear to be all the components to make up orders via the brush & the rods. (if we look at other combinations)

I've been monitoring bailey prices since getting my set (& expanding it) & this company have been the cheapest though may be worth looking around (I doubt it).
My set as originally purchased was for the Bailey Drain Rod & Chimney Cleaning Set In Carry Bag which ended up being around £25 inc delivery (not it's current price) the bag (if anyone is considering the kit keeps it all together & is tough enough to throw around a fair bit, rough & tumble of your car, storage etc.
As it's "oddly" out of stock it may be part of a swap sell technique ..so i'd press them to oblige based on other stock making up the order at the same price, ..i'd rather not take a gamble on the silverline, & the Orcastar alternatives I know nothing about, probably higher margin, generic import & in all likelihood stiffer therefore more cumbersome in the area the bailey's are designed for.
(not overly "bigging" them up, but we all know what the copying of product is like in production with varying levels of success & durability, ..which is how I now come to stick by this brand!

I can tell you from experience of my own chimney that the bailey "blue" is far more flexible & easy to rod thajn any other set i've used, cutting rodding / sweeping time down dramatically (10 minutes compared to 30 minutes, because they are so flexible they tend to get up & round effortlessly, (what we all want from a job, right)?
My chimney (& i'm lucky) has a simple bend & straight up & out, which previously was a pig, you need the inherent flex of good rods in these instances, makes them much borrowed as a result.
(please keep some disposable latex gloves to hand, protective eyewear, & some baby wipes to clean off your rods as they come back down the chimney & are unscrewed, makes for a much cleaner job that will not leave so much mess ofr you to be blamed for.
As I know my chimney I sweep it "blind" ie after the first length & brush has been inserted I duck tape a thick sheet round the entrance to catch agitated soot as it falls (a small slit to allow further rod attachment, & a bag to catch / move excess soot into, which isnt much if you do it regularly, but gets in the air a bit regardless!

No connection with Bailey, parent company or anything, simply like to buy good tools once!

WOW, what an unfounded stupid comment to make. Let's see a post from you with your own descriptive addition.

The sun don't shine in the chimney which is where the rods will go.

Either the 1/2" nylon flexi rods or the 3/4" blue Bailey's are generally fine for twin wall.
If it's two storey with a couple of bends invest in flexi rods and sweep every 6 months or so depending upon usage.
If nice and straight then the 3/4" Bailey's would be fine in the main
Dougieboy, was your flue liner correctly installed & installed the right way up?
which brand was it?
Great stuff. I am assuming cleaning the flue liner for a multi fuel stove is the same procedure as for an unlined chimney?
Locking are nice, but expensive, the best way for an amateur like me is to have a sharpie penned arrow pointing in the direction of turn, it's too easy to get distracted by the blethering of others, you olnly really need assistance of someone outside to tell you when the brush is through...
keep twisting hand over hand & you'll be fine, & if you've got walkie talkies send em out & simply tell the person watching the chimney pot to bleep you when it's out rather than talk,...it's easier that way, less confusion.
Never burn coal & wood together, fast way to start a chimney fire...(bad creation of poisons)
& clean your chimney regularly so it's less of a chore.
I've got the bigger set (also on the same site, keyword "bailey" ..but my chimney is actually only 6 rod lengths long to pop well clear of the top, so I anticipate this will cover alot of folks requirements.
I do recommend sweeping 1x per month to 6 weeks in burning season, as you get to know what your burning pattern quality of fuel & deposits left are like you can perhaps tone it down simply through it helping you learn how to obtain a best burn.
oh yes, forgot to say, safety goggles as soot is a complete mare in the eyes!
& clean off your rods with baby wipes.

I am a professional chimney sweep and yes, I use Bailey rods. But, the 16" brush that you receive is not really man enough to sweep the chimney properly. The bristles are too thin, plus you need the correct size brush for the job. Professionally made brushes cost a lot more than the whole set and are the only way forward.. I recommend you use a professionally qualified sweep and get the job done properly, plus a certificate.
just received this morning, very impressed, good quality, fits together much better than last set, lighter(possibly) proper brass screw fittings, heavy duty bag, good quality drain attatchments.
Just to give peeps an idea.. the cost from another merchant for this kit is...

For professional people who require their tools to be at hand on a regular basis there are two purpose designed sets, one in a strong rigid plastic case and another in a heavy duty blue carry bag, both of these are supplied with adjustable shoulder straps. The compact nature of these sets allows them to be easily stored in the works, shed, garage or van.

These sets include 30 feet of the finest Bailey Blue Rods® with varying tool options. Their quality, reliability and strength ensure that the toughest jobs can be tackled - an essential product for the builder, plumber, chimney sweep or handyman.

Contents: Quantity Size
10 3/4"x3' Bailey Blue Rods ..( around £45 on their own)
1 4" Drop scraper ..(£3.00 if bought seperately)Drop Scraper:Glides over small obstructions and drops into vertical scraping position to allow offending material to be dragged back towards the operator.

1 4" Plunger ...(£2.50 if bought seperately)
Plunger:Builds up pressure of water which forces obstruction clear.
1 2" Double worm screw ..(£4.00 if bought seperately)
Double Worm Screw:Piercesblockages such as paper or rags and the obstruction is drawn back to clear the pipe.


1 16" Brush .. (£16 if bought seperately)
Drain and sweeps brushes with bristles in plastic stock. Use for brick chimneys and coal burning applications.
1 x good quality "logo'ed" bag ..(about £12.50 if bought separately)

The Bailey blue rods are covered by international trademarks and are renowned world-wide for their quality, durability and strength. To compliment the rods there are a wide range of tools and brushes available to cover virtually any application. A range of drain test plugs are supplied in sizes from 15mm to 2000mm in steel, aluminium or nylon. Canvas air bags and other testing products are also available. A range of duct rods for cable laying, produced to
BT specifications, together with coupling up pieces, leaders and followers and adaptors are also manufactured.

The products enjoy an international reputation for quality and are endorsed by a long list of both national and international companies who specify these products as their preferred choice. These include public utilities, water authorities, national and local government, multi-national civil engineering companies, international construction companies and professional tradesmen. This diverse customer base extends to over 30 countries worldwide.

Manufacturing quality of the company’s products is of the highest standard and has been attained through years of experience and expert knowledge of the industry. Continuation of these traditional standards is essential and, in 1991, the company was assessed and registered to BS EN 9002 certifying its ability to supply quality products at a consistent level. With a fully integrated manufacturing facility the company is able to carefully control the quality standards of each component prior to final assembly.

Having compared to my old set these feel far more substantial, smooth to screw together, (even the rod fittings seem to align when pieced together, drain attatchments it came with feel alot more robust than a cheap set ..less reliant upon luck to get the job done!
(commendations to Bamford trading for both price, delivery & despatch times)
Recommended,
Well said, another thing, if you buy these individually (ie 1x 1 metre) theyre typically £4.60 - £4.90 each, so the math really works out favourably.
IF you are lucky & have no problems with your chimney a single sweep costs £25 upward, bearing in mind sweeping should happen several times over & after the burning season..
hopefully its not often you will need a set of these but when you need em your gonna need em big time " because if you ever get a drain blockage etc , its going to cost you tens times this to get it fixed .
(incidentally theres a discount on Bamford till midnight tonight for orders over £50, though that's a fiver off)
consider trying applying the "thankyou" without quotes when checking out (bamfords own discount box NOT paypals) ..that was originally issued xmas last year on twitter but worked for me & is theoretically 10% on anything currently.
