Ever-Ready 200T with custom made red ring

Hello gents.

Here I introduce another restoration made by me in a very common brush. It is common, but it has beautiful curves and nice shape. Classy in its simplicity. A classic, maybe a modern classic, but a classic.

You probably remember this other brush that I was fortunate to buy NOS. http://shavenook.com/thread-ever-ready-200t-nos
Well, to not kill the knot of this brush, and leave it in original status, I bought another one.

This piece of Americana traveled from Springfield, Missouri, United States, to Barcelona, Spain. At first, I planned to restore it for me, but when on December, 14th, 2013, I knew that my friend Manel needed a new brush, I immediately knew this handle with my custom made red ring would be for him. So I started the job, thinking Manel will be the owner.

This handle was not glued perfectly at factory. The union of the two pieces was showing the old glue. So, mounted on my mandrel, and spinning at 250 rpm, I made a groove 1 mm wide with a mini screwdriver, to remove the old glue and a bit of material, and I filled it with red colored epoxy (with a bit of paint). After that, I sanded the excess, and I polished the handle, spinning at 1200 rpm approx. I tried to repaint the lettering at bottom with gold paint, but it was a headache. Not enough depth in them. Then, I cleaned the paint and left the lettering unpainted.

Here you can see a couple pics from the vendor:

Restoration finished. Handle is 52 mm height, and loft is 53 mm, so a total brush height of 105 mm.

Well here is Manel, at right. Yes, he is the son in law of Mr. Miquel Ricou Sole. He is enjoying the brush some days ago, from Epiphanys's day.

Enjoy your restorations! And mine!

Jaun, I'm sure "Miquel" (Miquel Ricou Sole) senior is "Iknow" is going too love this brush……….

He is a remarkable man, and will always be remembered for his "Myrsol" products.

You have done a fantastic job on that ER 200T (great photographs)
