My 2012 restoration candidates
Here are pics of brushes I've acquired over the last few months. It all began with starting to read this particular sub-forum (which I had all but ignored) and saying "Hey, I pass up buying old brushes all the time. Maybe I can do this too." I kind of got zealous one day last week and cut all the knots and cleaned them up a bit with Flitz. (didn't really work to hard on the cleaning part) So, sorry guys, but these are the closest I've got to "before resto" pics.
I've got a few knots from TGN in different grades and sizes. I've got to study this forum a little more before I'll feel cumfy in trying to set knots. I had two other handles that were cracked and were ultimately destroyed by yours truly when attempting to drill out the old knots.
Pic 1 : 2nd & 3rd are the same. Says Swiss made?? 2 on right are ERs
Pic 2 : I guess are both Rubberset
Pic 3 : ERs
Pic 4: ERs on either side of a burgundy colored brush that says "USA Sterilized 7 " on bottom
Pic 5: ER, Rubberset, Century ( which looks black in dim lighting, so to show color I used a flashlight)
