Default metal handle wire brush

Hello all, had my forge going to remove some drill tech from a bunch of horseshoes that I purchased on ebay. however the tip of the handle on my wooden handle brush started burning., are there metal handle steel brushes out there? Thanks

Years ago, I had seen one.. It was used and still expensive..

Today it seems that wood or plastic are the main deals..

If you are looking to remove the borium use a butcher block brush with carbon steel bristles..

I don't know if this will help but somewhere recently well in the last few months I had seen a metal handled brush holder you used what looked like a normal wooden brush that had the handle missing and it inserted into the metal holder not sure if that would be useful but I seen it browsing on one of the tool sites but I had no need for it and site was not one I have saved on my comp but can try to find it again if ya want... think it was a handle/holder and three brushes one was a brass bristle brush

Get a few of these and tack them onto a metal handle:

Got my butcher block brush. very robust with some serious stiff metal brushes on it. wouldn't want to use it as a back scratcher.

Nice brush.. Where did you order it from?

I order 3 at a time and I'm just about out.. Got 1 left so it's time to start looking for a source..

That brush looks to fit the bill nicely..


I use the brushes back and forth but for the longerst life only push it or pull it in 1 direction.. You can add a directional arrow to the top so you know which way to move it..

These chipping hammer/brushes are the first thing that came to mind, but with the wooden or plastic block they don't solve your problem.
