Replaceable Foam Brush Heads

I buy disposable brushes by the dozen; theyre indispensable for painting little projects, touching up large ones, spreading glue and cleaning crevices.

I buy disposable brushes by the dozen; theyre indispensable for painting little projects, touching up large ones, spreading glue and cleaning crevices. But some snap pretty easily, and then perfectly good handles end up in the landfill. Thats why this foam brush set caught my eye. It uses replaceable foam inserts that fasten securely to the handle. When youre done painting, you wash or toss them. You can use the inserts with most paints, stains and finishes, and they leave a smooth, streak-free finish. The 48-piece brush set, which includes 12 handles and 36 inserts, costs $16. Thats a great valueeven with shipping, these brushes cost about half as much as conventional disposable brushes. Refills cost 20 to 40 each. Get the set (No. 96-404) at woodworker.com. Spike Carlsen, Contributing Editor
