I thought it was on this forum that I read about a brush for applying water based finish. I can’t find it. The woodworker raved about a new kind of brush that was the best he ever used. Anyone know what I’m talking about? Or have a recomendation?

I am likely your guy, Ken.

I have raved about the Gramercy brush for waterborne finishes from these guys.

Go to Shop, the Gramercy Tools, and quite a ways down the list you’ll find the brushes; three sizes.

Note that their location is Brooklyn. It might take a little patience.

Kindly,

Lee

Wow! Lee, I got the 3” brush today. What a nice brush. I’m evperementing with two waterborn finishes on my Cherry stairs. I love the way it’s going. Three or four more coats will tell the final story. Thank you Lee, that was a great tip.

You bet, Ken. With a brush, 100% of the product is going on the project. I like that.

My favorite of the waterborne stuff is General Finishes.

The other secret to my success with it is to strain the material for every coat. I buy strainers by the sleeve of 50 or 100. I strain the material into a paper or plastic cup and throw it away (and I hate that part) after one use. (The used cup, not the material. It goes back into the can.)

Kindly,

Lee

Lee,

I tried the link you included, but it wouldn’t work for me.

Here’s a link to their homepage: Tools For Working Wood

And here’s a link to the waterborne finish brush.

Just thought I’d add those for others trying to find this product.

Have your say...
