  1. Basic Psychology of Low Grit Sanding : Topcoat Review | December 27, 2015
  1. Ted Brackett says:

    I just watched your JLC video, “tips on how to clean & maintain paintbrushes”. It is absolutely ridiculous that this job is still being done by hand. I was a painting contractor for many years and have developed the world’s first cleaning system for any paintbrush. It is The Brushmate, it is a professional paintbrush cleaning power tool, and will THOROUGHLY clean any paintbrush from the very tips of the bristle, to deep within the heel, IN 90 SECONDS!

    I am currently seeking investor participation to go into production of this amazing product. It has been bench and market tested over the years and a number of mature designs and prototypes have been made. This opportunity is for the US painting contractor markets and the homeowner/DIY markets.

    Serious inquiries only, please contact me to receive the executive summary which outlines the entire opportunity, with video links to see how it works.
