    Default What's the best way to replace this knot ?

    I am hoping to find the best advice for replacing a knot on an old DD brush, Best way to take out the old one. Best glue for the new one. I have some new Gorilla epoxy that is clear.

    The pic tells a lot :<0)

    The original has an almost hollow center. I think I have measured this right but I am not sure what is inside, like how deep etc. I don't want to destroy it because I want to measure it when it's out.The new knot may be slightly bigger but then the old one is missing a lot of it's guts. Hard to judge. I got the knot to make a new handle but I need to use this old one anyhow.

    I don't know the Gorilla glue clear epoxy - I have only worked with the Gorilla brown. The brown expands way too much for a brush.
    If you have used the clear before, and it doesn't expand that will work well.

    Otherwise I would go with a clear two part epoxy. That's what I used. Seal the socket area up with it, but dont let it squish out onto the hair knot.

    I looked at the left "brush" and thought that was the strangest brush handle I've ever seen... Engineer style!

    Thanks Glen . The vise trick worked great. It just fell out the second crimp. The inside looked like it was filled with Bondo. I used a Dremmel sanding drum at first but a pointed grinding stone worked the best. I only lowered it about an 1/8" more than the boar at about a 1/2" total.

    gooser, this is an M3 DD brush with a 24mm Golden Nib black badger. I just measured the inside edge of the metal with calipers. I have a few more of these that are going to get new knots soon.

    See the pic of the NEW Gorilla Epoxy. I got it at Home Depot.

    After seeing that, I want to try something like it. I'm going to keep my eye out for old brushes that have good handles on them.

    Thanks 10Pups.

    Well it sure felt good this morning !
    Thanks Glen, I got the black badger idea from one of your creations as I recall. I always liked black and chrome stuff.
    Hirlau you can get a bunch on the bay.
    And Lemur that gear was a chunk of aluminum plate I cut out with a band saw,filed and polished for weeks. I made it into a pen holder for my father on his birthday when I was 16 in shop class. I forgot about it until he passed. A friend of his brought it to me and said it was on his desk for 30 some years. I may turn it into a razor stand for pictures or the base of a brush holder.
