View Full Version : Eveready 101 restore
01-11-2011, 09:56 PM
Bought an Eveready 101 brush at local antique shop and pulled the knot and polished it up. Haven't seen one like this before. Anyone know anything about it. the outher hole is about 19mm but it recesses to about 21 after a small lip. I'm leaning toward a 20mm knot and making the hole fit but it is set in rubber so maybe it will squeeze into the recess and be good. Thoughts?

you'll have to clearance the lip to fit the base of the knot, the rubber these are made out of will crack before it stretches

Thank you! Should I get a 20 then or get a better measurement on the inner hole first?

personally, after doing a couple restores, i would say find a nice dense 18mm super or silvertip
what other brushes do you have?

EJ pure badger and a new Everready c40 boar. I only use soaps and I cup lather if that makes a difference.

So has anyone ever heard of the 101 I can't find anything on it?

Thanks to TGN for the quick shipping I installed the 20mm Grade A Silvertip knot tonight. Just a tiny bit of opening to do on the hole in the handle and it popped right in. Set it with Marine epoxy and waiting to dry. Set at about 50-52mm.
Nice work, that turned out well.

That is one neat brush. If you're interested, a couple of people around here have managed to re-letter their handles using a couple different materials (white paint, crayon, etc.). Take a look around for those threads. Although your brush is fantastic as is, I think white lettering would put it over the top! (Just my opinion)

I've been thinking about doing that with the crayon but wasn't sure how it would hold up to hot water. Until tonight when I just so happened to be trying to clean my kids' crayon maker kit with said hot water.:001_smile
I think it would help make it really pop!
