Tom Kelly’s grandfather, O.Z. Crozier, (aka) “The Baron” of Baron Roth & Kelly started striping wagons and buggies for the Studebaker Bros. in the early 1900’s. He then striped at the Ford Motor Co. for over 25 years through the 20’s-30’s and part of the 40’s. In the early 50’s when striping returned to cars in a custom style, I asked the Baron to stripe my friend’s car and he did. My grandfather thought it might be good to go into business striping and he asked me, Kelly, to work with him, so I did. I’ve been striping every day for the last 53 years. The only brush the Baron and I have ever used is a #1 & #2 Mack Sword Striper from the Andrew Mack Brush Co. For all the new stripers coming into the business, don’t be afraid to use a larger brush, you can do anything the smaller brush can do, but the larger brush will go further on a single load of paint.
Available as a set or individual sizes 1 & 2
Mixture Of Squirrel Hair & TaklonThis brush is similar to our Fast-Lite Pinstriping Brush, but with mixed hair to give the brush more body. Water-base paint has a higher density so mixing taklon with pure squirrel gives the brush body and snap. A generous amount of pure squirrel ensures the brush can carry enough paint to make it a good striper. Available in sizes 00, 0, 1 & 2 (see chart below)
What makes the XCaliber special is it's short hair length. Only 1 1/2" vs. the average 2" and 2 1/4". This shorter length allows greater control for intricate designs, as well as long lines. Available in sizes 0000, 000, 00 & 0
Don't let the name of this brush fool you!This is a very capable and useful brush made for long lines and a superb brush for design work, and an excellent choice for outlining flames, graphics, etc. After 17 years of using Cosmos then DaVinci 700 long liners for all of my line work I noticed the dreaded "hair falling out syndrome" then the shape consistently changing as the selling price of these brushes continued to rise. All the while always having to grab my trusty Mack blue wrap (series 10) for my design work or any time I had flames or graphics with lots of turns. I'd finally had enough. So teaming up with Mack Brush Company to develop a brush that combined the best of both worlds the Peewee 800 LongLiner was born! This wasn't a one time "hey make a brush like this guys" type of thing. It took many tries and quite a few design changes to ensure the "butterknife" or "sword" shape was just right, not to mention the hair count was refined to maximize the paint carrying abilities for those long lines this brush was intended for. In a nutshell, this is a highly refined Mack Series 10 built with a purpose, and with being a Mack rest assured it will be a workhorse that won't let you down! Available in sizes: 00, 0 & 1
Kazan Squirrel - Bronze Handle"Just a hair' faster than the Vortex, but with all the quality, this baby moves right along. As fast as you can think of a design, the typhoon seems to read your mind and anticipate you next move. The hair was chosen for quick response time and accurate placement on any surface. I especially like this brush for motorcycle work because of the curved surfaces and the brushes 'forgiveness' in tight turns. I am amazed at its performance every time I use it." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes. Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
Blue Squirrel - Grey Handle"If you use scroll striping, you'll love this brush! After 30 years of scrolling we've developed what I think is the finest brush available for this style. It gives beautiful controlled lines that respond exactly to your movements without the slightest hesitation, splitting or fraying in the turns. It holds its line throughout the pattern and gives you more response - like the most expensive brushes used for scrolling. I recommend this for beginners as well as seasoned veterans of this style." - Steve Chaszeyka Available in 3 sizes Steve is also featured in our Pinstripers Hall of Fame: Award #9
