Great idea!

Would making that whip half as long and coming in from both directions work? I'm thinking it might be a little easier to handle?

A little BT contribution: with the two-stroke GP racebikes we'd have to clean the carbon out of the expansion chambers periodically, and it occurred to me it would work just as well for de-dingleberry-ing a header.
Buy 3ft of 1/4" or 3/8" braided steel cable. Solder one end solid (so you can put it in a drill chuck) and fray the other end. You'll want to safetywire or otherwise bind the cable about 6-8" down so it only frays enough. You Roto-Rooter that puppy in and out of a header attached to a powerful (read: corded) drill and it'll take anything out.

I like this one!
