For removing dirt between electrodes, thin wires 1 coated with emery (diamond) dust are used which, similar to the blades of a hacksaw or the hair of a violin bow, are arranged adjacent to each other. They may be fixed to the ends of the bow 2. It is also possible to wind a long wire several times around the bow, providing the bow ends with guide pieces 3 (e.g., rollers) with groove guides for spacing the wires from each other.
