    I visited your site and thought that flushing out the spile hole with warm water to be a pretty good idea. Usually I just back the drill bit out slowly so it brings most of the shavings with it, but next season will try the squirt bottle/warm water method :-)
    Been tapping since 2008, but mostly unexceptional til recent years.
