    Default Weekend discoveries

    Found a couple cool items at the antiques market this weekend. There's an office stamp holder that I thought would make a nice brush holder. It rotates and has a good heavy base. And there's a Wade & Butcher with a faint "Celebrated India Steel" etch. Both need some cleaning up but that's expected and half the fun!

    I have a similar carousel repurposed for the same task.

    Very handy for brushes, and as per Geezer, if you keep an eye out, you can get second tiers as well.. I need one now actually as mine holds 8 and that is no longer enough spots..

    Nice WB as well sir..

    I always though that a little heat shrink tubing would make the holders a little more friendly.

    Nice finds Tuzi.
    As Rez said.. A little shrink tubing will help from marring the finish on the handles.

    You and Geezer with your stamp holders!! I've seen at least 2 in my searches and have thought about buying them. Maybe next time if the price is right, I'll grab one. Lovely W&B too.

    The shrink tubing is a great idea, guys! I was trying to think of how to cover the metal. I was about to say what about the stuff you dip the handles of pliers in, I think it's called Plasti-Dip. Anyone ever try that stuff for this?

    I think it would be too thick and bulky.
    Yes I've used it, and it works best if you heat the object before dipping. I put it on some plier handles, it eventually cracked and fell off.
    Go with shrink tube, IMHO

    Hi nice going. I think the plasti-dip would work. Good luck Tuzi.
