Three little horses
#1

Decided to make 3 horse hair brushes as a small project.

The handles:

A fellow member of the Dutch "Shaving Society" produced 3 handles on the lathe.
Put 2 layers of laquer ("Glitsa parketlak PT", matte finish) on it and glued
a little abalone disc at the bottom (see last picture)

Here are the handles:

From left to right:
Pink ivory (Berchemia zeyheri)
Common apple (Malus domestica)
Black walnut (Juglans nigra)

The knots:

It is almost impossible to find good separate horse hair knots.
Vie-Long makes fine horse hair brushes, but does not sell separate knots (yet ?).
So I bought 3 brushes - Vie-Long 12705B.
This brush has a bulb shaped knot, 50% mane - 50% tail.
Removed the handles from their knots.

Here is the start ...

And then, using my Dremel tool:

The 3 knots:

And here together with the handles:

Then the knots are glued into the handles using 2-component epoxy.
A rubber band and a few tiewraps keep the knot in place during curing of the epoxy:

The pink ivory brush.

And the common apple and black walnut brushes.

After curing the rubber bands and tiewraps are removed, followed by a test lather and drying.
This is the result:

Dimensions:
Knot diameter at base (all 3): 23 mm
Loft (from left to right): 49 mm, 52 mm, 50 mm

And a picture at the bottom:

Buen trabajo.
Una pregunta ¿los nudos no salí­an de otra manera? Normalmente con calor húmedo suelen salir.

Yo quite uno ayer con calor húmedo precisamente y no quedó ni rastro de pegamento.

Nice brushes! Congratulatios!
We use a diferent system to remove the knots from the handle.It´s very easy,you have to heat three fingers of water in a pot till it boils,then put the brush in another dry bowl and put it inside the hot water.Close the pot and leave the brush there for 15-30 minutes.The steam will make soften the glue and you could remove the knot easily.
If you have any question it will be a pleasure to help you.:thumbsup:

Very nice handles, i guess that you have a torn to make them, the way that the others colleagues comments to take out the old knots is very fast and clean, I recommend you becaus you'll have extra handles... You never know if you'll neede them :thumbsup:

Kind regards,

Now I understand turner40's comment ... :cejas:
And no, I don't want to do the "steam method" - because it might harm
the knot.
If I wanted to save the handle, the "steam method" is OK.
