Ever-Ready #69 Black. Double restoration.

Hello mates. I have not had much time lately to restore brushes, but I've done this double restoration in recent weeks. I had this brush, from months ago awaiting restoration. And my friend Velsus bought another. He showed to me, and I said to him that I had one just like that. I told him to send it to me, and I restored at the same time.

My brush came from USA in this box. Here you can see it in this photo, above right.

And the one of my friend is this one, as it came.

After cleaning with a cloth and polish it was well, a little better, but not enough.

So I set to work

And the result was this, with some Finest Badger knots.

Thank you Rob and Ravi. Ravi, I love the title you thought for me time ago. You were very inspired that day. Friends, restoring old brushes is an activity I enjoy a lot, and gives to me a lot of rewards. I enjoy the processus of doing it. No hurries. Usually take months from the day I start to the day I finish the job.

Great job.  I'd love to see a picture or two and hear about the jig you are using in the drill to hold the handle.

Thanks
