This is my Bestshave.net #6 Boar brush.

I choose to try via my friend's lathe to remove the knot from the handle because due the bad weather i couldn't go out in my yard where there is cement.
Soon a major problem occurred,the turkish maker mixed the glue with some kind of sand to make the whole work stabilized
That cause a damage to my friends tools,i have seen from close all the rehandle work that he done via lathe for me and that time was the hardest.
To be honest many belch heard but finally he managed to pull out the knot without to hurt the base and the bristles.

Another handle from a cheap brush was the donor
As you can see the glue overflow problem from the turkish maker can not be hidden
It's present and looks ugly but nothing can be done
The loft is short so there is no other choice.
Same problem with the knot's inclination, not be corrected.
I will post some useful photos latter to show you some more
Thank you folks!
