    BTW, if you ever have a need for high quality forstners, Lee Valley is your friend.

    IMHO a vise or a third hand would be very helpful in doing that you describe... what is the handle made of?

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    This one is resin but if it works as I hope, who knows what fun I can have later.

    My new knots arrived today

    These are excellent knots and even though they are synthetic, I am really pleased.

    I have had a couple of cheap synthetic brushes and they were disappointing so I am really pleased at he quality of these.

    One thing I now know for sure, the original knot in this brush was 100% badger in the description as you all know.

    Now I have a synthetic faux silver tip knot to compare the original one with, the original is definitely not real badger. It looks exactly the same as my new synth except lower quality.

    I haven't had the chance to get a glue gun so I put the new knot in temporarily with a little spot of silicon and tried it out this afternoon.

    That brush is excellent now, no adjustments needed.

    Now what am I going to do with my forstners set, stupid knot, it wasn't supposed to fit that well straight out of the box.
