    Default First brush restore mistake

    Here is a double duck set in rubber number two with old brush removed.. I made a mistake with the drill as u can see .. I figure once new brush is set I won't see the mistakes anyways.. My problem is I don't have calipers and have no idea what size brush to get .. The whole seems bigger then a quarter all,around what would be a safe size brush to get I could always open up the hole more?. Next post pic..

    Just measure the opening with a rule and convert the inch measurement to mm using Inches to Millimeters - in to mm conversion or similar converter program.

    Several factors to consider,grade of knot,size of knot,do you face lather or bowl lather?

    You are going to have to smooth those edges up using sandpaper or you will be cutting the knot every time you use the brush..

    Forstner Bits are your friend

    Spades will work also, but you have to be pretty carefull with both, using a Vise in conjunction with your Drill Press really helps

    This is a good valid point, I would take it into serious consideration if you can't smooth that inside hole up, you could very well waste a good knot on a bad handle
