    Default Another Brush Restore

    I always admired these Rubberset Aluminum brushes and I finally got one on the cheap(that's me).It had some really bad bristles.Got those out and epoxyed in a 26mm silvertip.I like it a lot,it's a lot longer than the others I've restored and gets my knuckles out of the lather.

    I love the handle!!

    Uber bristles man. If you go into barbering you could use that as a neck duster.

    How did you get the knot out without disfiguring the handle?

    The top cap unscrews.I just cut off the old bristles,flipped the cap over,drilled a lot of holes in the old epoxy(with a drill-press),then cracked the epoxy left between the drilled holes with a screwdriver.

    Thanks,guys.Just wanted to show the newer members that you can get a nice badger brush without breaking the bank,and still use the vintage style of these old brush handles.

    For some odd reason I never thought of doing this....and I have several old brushes sitting around. Duh! Thanks for the terrific idea, and I love the three you have pictured here, nice restore jobs!!

    Very nice, that aluminum brush is sweet!

    I bought some metric forstner bits that fit the knot holes perfectly. I have yet to buy some replacement knots yet and set some new ones in old skins.

    Thanks for posting that.
