TOP TIP FOR BOOKBINDERS EVERYWHERE

OK, so I was looking for a replacement glue brush after losing my old one (long story - not today) and with no time to order one, I got desparate - urh - creative.

I looked around the art stores - no luck.  Harware store - Grrrr. Cheapshop - BINGO!!!    A man's shaving brush - no joke.

At first, I thought it would just be a standin, but it is so handy, and I can sit it on it's bum/handle between uses, it's hoggish bristles are as good as any specialized one I've forked out squillions for, washes out beautifully, sits great in your paw with no wrist-pain after long stints... no drawbacks at all yet, and now I am always on the lookout for great new ones.

Try it - seriously.

  1. Oh, and another thing - its meant to be in water, so no chance of bands rusting or moulding. S I can leave it overnight in water with no worries. ;D
