Did you Know?

Just read the did you know a Ferrule is the metal band around a paintbrush thing.

Its also a crimp type connector used in wiring consisting of a hollow tube with a plastic end crimped over wires prior to the wires being held by some mechanical type connection.

Sorry just day dreaming I guess back to when I use to do prototype wiring..... :-?

Some signwriters brushes are made with metal ferrules but now here's a question

How were the natural sable hairs of signwriters brushes originally banded together?

(They can still be purchased in this way today)

they used warmed pig fat, dripped from a 10' height to reach the exact temperature in which a small one eyed pigmy could implant each hair induvidually all at the same time.

Excellent responses
Many were extremely close

But the free 'mike the sign' design cd goes to the post which correctly identified it has quill. (Enjoy the CD!)

2nd price has to go to Paul Davenport:
Congratulations Paul! Half a pound of lard on its way to you.
