    When I first read about the VLB several years ago I did think, still do, that it was an interesting and novel idea. Unfortunately by that time I basically knew what loft to size ratios I liked in my 2 band badger, boar and synthetic knots. So for me it was a solution to a non-existent problem by that time. Still that takes nothing away from the uniqueness of the VLB design.

    Not sure what my preferences are yet, so one of those would be nice to experiment with!

    Welcome back! Hope you stick around as you seem to be a good natured inventive chap with a lot of experience and good things to say... That's a great combo!

    The info on the history which led us all here is great to clear up and discuss in a decent way, I for one know more now than I did, so thank you for bringing it up.
    My best wishes for everyone involved.

    As far as that brush goes.. Right on! The more variety the better. Someone will like it.
    I have had similar concepts skip across my manic imagination before, like stones on a frozen pond..
    Now they just sit there taunting me.
    I love mechanical devices, maybe a steam-punk style, brass and exotic woods, keep the mechanical aspect external for show..
    Uh oh! Dang it, what have you done?! Now I won't get it out of my head for weeks! Hehehe

    Yes, it's perfect for that. Do keep in mind that the setting you settle on will likely be good for only one type of badger grade and not directly applicable to boar, synthetic of horse hair knots. That is if you plan to buy more brushes in the future.

    Also, when you try a different badger brush it could be different. Not all badger knots are the same. Its still a cool idea.
