Hey, gang —
I was vigorously cleaning out one of my fitches yesterday, and I guess I got a little too rough because all the bristles flew out of the ferrule in a single clump. (I guess I don’t know my own strength!)
I’m sure this is a pretty common problem and I don’t think the brush is a lost cause. The bristles themselves are all still glued together — so I think I can easily place them back in the ferrule and re-attach the whole thing.
My only question is: what sort of adhesive might hold up better, in order to prevent this from happening again? Are there any tried-and-true glues out there that you guys know of? I’d hate to see this poor fitch fall apart again, so any insight would be appreciated.
I’m attaching a photo of the crime scene for everyone’s reference.
