EverReady 150 Restore with 18mm Best Badger knot from Golden Nib.
I had this EverReady brush for decades. It had shed out most of its middle boar bristles, so after seeing so many of the restores done here, I knew I could bring this one back to life.
I sliced off the bristles, then used a Forstner bit to drill out the remaining knot base…it was solid for about a centimeter. I drilled through the floor of the brush handle into the hollow. I filled the hollow with cork pieces and 24 hour set System Three epoxy to a level that would give me a 42mm loft on the Best Badger knot. Once that had cured overnight I set the 18mm knot. This old handle could have taken a 20mm knot if I had enlarged the original hole just a tiny bit.
I used it for this mornings shave and it worked very well….having my old Red and White handle back in hand was a bonus too.
