This week’s featured tool from JewelryTools.com is the Brass Brush with a Wooden Handle, BRS-968.00. These bristles aren’t sharp or hard – you can run the brush across your finger and it won’t hurt. So I can use this brush holding a pendant in my hand to take off firescale, tarnish, or liver of sulfur, instead of using steel wool (now that hurts my fingers, all that shedded wool!) or a green scrubbie pad (which also tends to shed).If you’re working with soft sheet metal or metal blanks, this brush will help you get a nice brushed finish, too.Patti Bullard introduced me to this handy tool, which she uses in Metalworking 101 several times, including after soldering but before shining up with a polishing cloth, and also shining up metallic pigment in the EnCapture Concrete bezel. Didn’t it sparkle?

This brass brush is really handy and it’s about 8-5/8″ long, so it doesn’t take up much space on your bench, but it’s really easy to find. Try it out!

If you ordered Metalworking 101 during our presale, you got a free EnCapture kit, which included this brass brush. How have you liked using it? Let us know in the comments below!
