What can I do with these brushes?
Years ago we used to make and sell specially designed brushes for stopping wool from being lost off shearing shed boards when shearing sheep. "Lock Stoppers" we called them. The brush would be mounted with bristles up at the entrance of the chute the sheep goes down after shearing. The brush would catch the small bits of wool (locks) but allow the newly shorn sheep through.
They sold OK when the wool market was booming, but those days are gone and we now have piles of these brushes gathering dust.
Does anyone have any good ideas for using them for something fun or creative?
Does anyone want any of them?
They are each about 500mm wide. The bristles are about 200mm long. The brushes are about 5-10mm thick.
