We have intended to add these brushes to our store for some time.  We get them at a good price from the same wholesaler who supplies our chip brushes. That is why we can sell them so reasonably.  Check out the nice wooden dowel handles--not those cheesy plastic ones.  What we had been waiting for is a test.  We sent some samples to a customer, and this is what he said:

"The brushes have worked well for everything that I used them for. The possible exception was the high build undercoat where the brush seemed to break down towards the end of the session. The undercoat has a high talc content and the consistency of concrete, and part of the process was running the brush edgewise where the laps meet.

"As I suspected, I used the 2" brushes the most. What surprised me was how often I used 1" brushes for small epoxy coating jobs and 4" brushes for painting. Usually I make do with the 2" brushes I get from CLC, but the 4" really speeded up the painting. I used the brushes with MAS epoxy (both fast and slow hardeners) and Interlux Brightsides paint (one part polyurethane). Most of the applications were rolled on, then tipped with the brush.
