Does anyone have any experience using a dental water jet or dental water pick on SLS parts to clean them? I was thinking about using a dental water jet to finish the cleaning of SLS parts after I removed the majority of the powder but I am not sure how well that would work. I would assume you would need to get a higher end dental water jet (one similar to the dentist's) because the ones available at Wal-Mart etc. don't provide much pressure.
