Well, sometimes you receive a brush that has damage to the handle. Depending upon how bad the damage is, determines whether it can be restored or simply rejected.

In this case the handle was damaged on the dome top as well as having some severe scuffing. After some wet sanding and polishing most of the scuffing was reduced and/or eliminated. The top of the handle presented a different issue. Rather than hogging the handle out to clear the damage, I chose to take a different approach. I decided to cut the dome top off and slightly sand to level the new top of the walls.

The hole was now expanded to 24 mm and an ACE Finest was installed. The results can be seen below.

Thanks for reviewing my latest work.

Hi Gary

End result looks good Thumbsup

Would it be possible to a post a *before* photo of the handle?

Take care, Mike

Sorry I can't this one. I just went to work because I did not know what would happen. I just did this on a lark and something good happened.
