I have been working with GDCarrington, aka Gary, on getting an Ever-Ready 150G brush restored with a new Gen 3.5/4 synthetic knot. As it turned out, this brush had a manufacturing flaw that didn't present itself until Gary started to remove the knot. He contacted me right away with the news. I told him that this is the risk involved in working with strange vintage brushes and that I would start looking for another one. Gary then said: "I may have a solution." He told me he had a rare Lord Chesterfield brush and a 24mm x 49mm TGN 3 Band Knot he would do for me at less than the original restoration would cost including the brush........if that was OK? OK, heck yes that is OK. He just finished it and will be shipping it after everything is completely set and dry. I can't wait. Gary really went above and beyond what he needed to do. THANKS Gary!!!!

Gary does amazing work. I told him he should sign these things they are such a work of art. I never did learn how to take and post a picture from my boys and they are off in Texas right now but here's the one Gary did for me. The one on the left.
