"I’m not just saying it, but your waxes are superb"
- Drew Pritchard (Salvage Hunters)
This wood buffing brush is composed of solid beech and features natural plant based tampico fillings. Tampico, also known as Mexican fibre, is harvested from the lechuguilla plant native to semi-desert areas of Mexico. This versatile fiber can resist temperatures up to 140°C, as well as acids and caustic soda, and its fineness makes it ideal for polishing.
Having been utilised for numerous years in the workshop, our drill-powered buffing brush can considerably reduce time and effort when operated correctly. Popularised as ‘pine drill brushes’ during the Victorian era when furniture was stripped to the bare wood and wax polished, these brushes have been meticulously crafted and wax polished using Gilboys' (clear) pure gold beeswax by our workshop specialists.
Brush Diameter: 10cm / 4 inches
Bristle Length: 4cm / 1 ⅝ inches
Wonderful gadget and takes some of the elbow grease out of buffing after using the fabulous Gilboys’ waxes.
Certainly a faster less laborious way of removing the wax, however a final polish by hand is necessary to achieve the best results..
Fantastic products! I find Gilboy's furniture polish easy to use and with great results and the buffing brush really improved the results I get with deeply carved pieces.
I bought the brush with the aim of using it to apply Antique Gold to a deeply carved fireplace surround. It did its best but was unable to get into the nooks and crannies.
I am sorry you didn't achieve the success you hoped for. The problem is it looks like you may have used the buffing brush to apply the wax polish. The brush is not designed for this purpose.
The best way we have found to apply the wax is, is with a trimmed paintbrush. This allows you to get right in to all the nooks and crannies, then leave it for twenty to thirty minutes. Now you can buff with the drill brush, followed up with a quick buff by hand with the pure cotton cloth. ✅
I hope this helps you.
I debated whether to buy the brush, as I assumed it would just be useful for polishing turned legs etc, but it worked well on a desk top and gave an excellent finish. Easy to use, excellent quality brush.
