Got these 2 in and got started on preliminaries on both. I got a little excited when getting some tips from TobyC about cleaning the ferrule and it turned out nice.

After removing the knot in the wood one I saw the 20 mm Boar knot I had for it was tight due to an inner metal ring the old knot came out of and was still running around the interior of the ferrule. I used a dremel on the inside trying to sand down the metal ferrule..............yep, you see where this is going and why I dread doing brush restores. It heated it up to the point I saw smoke and noticed a spot the size of a pencil eraser head blacken on the ferrule. (Toby warned me it burned easy and fast but this surprised me) That's not bad enough, it continues to smoke and spread until the entire ferrule desitigrated before my eyes........I was left with this wood handle and blackened metal band from the knot.  Angry  Confused

I had bought a group of brushes from France a year ago that went missing and showed up 3 months later destroyed. this was one of them from the sellers pics and I robbed the ferrule from it and sanded down the top until it would accept the knot.........

Here it is just mocked up to see what it will look like. Still want to do some final sanding before assembling. NOT what I was hoping for but at least it will be salvaged..........unless I mess it up further.....

Wow, fantastic recovery, Dave. My thought is that once the handle is stained and varnished, it will all look shiny and new. But I am not at all gifted to tackle this problem and I would have given up at the disintegration, and burned them all up in a fit of pique! Looking forward to seeing how things end up!

You need to bolt down that vice!  Confused

Boar brushes, brass razors, and hard pucks ARE traditional wet shaving. Everything else is modern day fluff for the girly men.

It's like the blues, the best stuff comes from dead guys.
