what do I need to do a restoration on a couple of brushes. I perhaps want to widen the hole a little for a little bigger knot.

To be honest,for "restorations" I dont use any tool,but steam, (Ill make a tutorial soon about this).In that way I get rid of the old knot and put a new one,but I never try to make the hole bigger.If you want that,a drill,at least, would be necessary.

The steam thing sounds interesting, never heard anyone mention it before, I would definitely like to see a tutorial.

Ill try to make it next week,but I will open a thread sooner to show my "restorations" (if I can call them that way).

I'd be interested in that too, Teiste. The only restoration I ever tried was a failure, mainly because I tried to use vice grip pliers freehand rather than the bench clamp and router that others have recommended, and I destroyed the handle.
