    Source for a decent wood handle wire brush?

    Does anyone have a source for a decent 10-inch wood handled wire brush? It appears that after 30 years mine is shot. This seems to be yet another example of a tool that years ago required no fore thought to purchase. But today the market is riddled with Chinesium junk that the bristles fall out.

    I'm not looking for a $50 Snap-on wire brush. Just something that isn't complete garbage.

    I have had good luck with the Osborn brand brushes. You might be able to find them on Amazon.

    These are the ones I purchased when working for a mechanical contractor.

    At least USA made.

    Not sure if they direct ship single brushes.

    Try a local welding supply house...a little stiff, but they'll work. Bob

    That's a good idea, I mostly use them for welding anyway.

    Agree with rwmeyer, welding supply shop, stuff from big box stores is crap.

    Have a plastic handle one and a wooden handle one from welding shop, probably 10 years old and still in good shape.

    Yeah, but when are you going to use it?

    Whenever I use the sparkle stick machine........................Wisea$$

    Clean the flux off with chipping hammer, shine it up with the wire brush, if it still doesn't look good, polish it up
    with the 4 1/2" angle grinder if need be.

    I have a VERY favorite brush, and it is only used selectively as I am not sure I could replace it,,

    This may be the one I have,,

    Amazon.com: Shark 17005 Long Handle Carbon Steel V-Shaped Wire Brush: Gateway

    That pic does not do it justice,, this pic shows how the bristles are arranged,,



    The brush has all the bristles in a narrow row, and it is powerful!!

    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!
