Despite my overall lack of handyman skills, I really want to try my hand at restoring a brush. I picked up a Ever-Ready 150W last week, the knot looks pretty bad but the handle looks like it will clean up nicely. Here it is next to a restored 200 and my FS Finest:
It is definitely lighter than the 200, although I am fairly sure the 200 had some weight added when it was redone. I am hoping someone with some experience restoring a 150W could share some knowledge about the brush. I would not mind having an idea of what I am going to find when I start pulling the knot out.
I am also considering doing a trial run on either my VDH boar or my Shea Moisture brush. Neither one gets used anymore, and I wouldn't be heartbroken if I messed them up.
