More advice needed, please.
How can I drill out a brush handle (to achieve shorter loft) without a lathe or drill press? My first guess is to tape the heck out of the handle, grab it with a channelocks, and drill it out with my cordless drill. Anyone have any tips to help me not scar up the handle?
I've ordered a 22mm swirl handle and 22X65mm knot from TGN. There is no mention of the depth this handle is drilled to. Some of the others say 13mm. If that is what my swirl handle is, that will make a loft of 52mm, correct? I will almost certainly want this brush to have a final loft of no more than 47mm. 43mm is what I was really thinking of doing.
Does anyone know the standard depth of TGN's handles?
