Restored Fuller Brush

Bought a vintage Fuller off EBay for $6 with a boar knot.
Washed it a couple of times and no bad smell!
Only used it once and it was a poor performer so I drilled out the knot and epoxyed a Maggard's 22mm Timberwolf synthetic.

1. Original knot
2. Knot drilled out
3. Brush handle and new knot
4. Timberwolf synthetic installed

Thanks for all your kind words.
This is only my second brush restoration.
I wouldn't have attempted it without the information and help here on B&B.

You have the best screen name ever my friend.
Thanks - glad you like it!
We used to live in Shark River Hills a small community on the NJ shore. My father-in-law who has since passed jokingly called it Sharktown and it has stuck ever since.

Nice work! How do you like the knot?
Since I just finished it I haven't used it yet. I have tried in a brush pass around a Maggard's Tuxedo knot that was awesome, very soft with good backbone.
I will report back after the first use.

Used the brush for the first time this morning and it is so soft on the face, just like silk.
I would like more backbone to the knot but still like it and need to use it more.
The lather making and splay are great too.
Just bought a vintage Peerless and waiting for it to get delivered. Will use a synthetic on this one too.

Thanks for the review.
You might set the knot a little deeper on the next one to increase backbone.
I did think about setting the knot deeper and I drilled a couple of times and set the knot in to check it.
Thought I had it enough at 7/16" deep - oh well, the next one will be a little bit deeper!
