Series 13 Hanson/Mack “King 13” Pinstriping Brush (13)
Andrew Mack & Son Brush Company has teamed up with Todd Hanson to create a brush called the “King 13” which is offered in sizes 00000, 000, 00, and 0.
We use a 60mm Chinese blue squirrel hair for the 00000 and 000 giving the brush a total length of 1 3/4″. We use a 64mm hair for the 00 and 0 which gives the brush a total length of 2″. The brush has more pull in the making process giving it a little more taper than a traditional striper. The amount of hair that is distributed onto the handle during the making process is configured differently than our series #10 or #20 brushes. For example, the 00000 and 000 are made on a #00 handle, the 00 is made on a #0 handle, and the 0 is made on a #1 handle. Our technicians are applying the same amount of hair for a say a #00 brush but putting it on a handle that has a larger surface area.
Available in sizes: 0000000, 00000, 000, 00, 0 & 1
(Grumbacher Replacement)The Grumbacher Company was sold several years ago and the company that purchased Grumbacher discontinued many of the quality brush products. When the two Grumbacher stripers were no longer offered we found the company who had been making these for Grumbacher and began offering the same brush, but with our name on the handle. Unfortunately, that manufacturing company went out of business in mid 2002 and we assume the assets were purchased by a company in India. We were concerned about quality, distance, exchange rates etc., so we worked with several "Grumbacher users" and developed our own version of the old Grumbacher 1010. We can not offer the 1020 black plastic handle, since we would have to buy too many handles to get a cost effective price. Stripers who worked with us to develop this new brush also suggested that it be a bit longer. From this research came the New "Mach-One". Available in sizes 00, 0, 1, & 2 (see chart below) | Wooden Lacquered Handle Series 101

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
