DC Flatliner Pinstriping Mack Brush series 1310
DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 has a unique squirrel hair comes from China and it is softer than the traditional Siberian squirrel hair. Its the same hair that Mack Brush uses in their #10 Origianl Mack Striping brush which is a "work horse" that was designed for long lines. The DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 is a very "fast" brush and lays out Long lines. Available in size 00 hair out 1-5/8", size 0 hair out 1-3/4", and size 1 hair out 1-7/8".
I see the DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 more of a medium size pinstriping brush (in hair) and good for fine-medium size lines 3'-4' long depending on the load of paint. The Mack brush 1010 has a longer body of hair before the belly of the pinstriping brush, making it possible to carry a larger load for longer lines if you need. Although I think the DC Flatliner Pinstriping Brush series 1310 is one of the brushes that will perform like a traditional Sword pinstriping brush, while offering those the feel of a Dagger pinstriping brush.
Brush Tips by Ron Percell, When using these brushes in Oil or Urethane, I always use refined Lard Oil as a brush preservative to get the most life out of my Brushes. I ran across a old sign kit of mine that had been stored for 15 years and the refined Lard oil was still fresh. Before I used some of those vegetable based products and they would dry and crystalize in 3-6 month, it took some serious soaking to get the stuff out of the brushes. Over the years of making professional chemicals for the sign painting industry I've learned that those few water-based (plant based) oils are natural Varnishes, now tell me, would you leave varnish in your brushes, I don't think so. Avoid automotive oils, they have detergents which eat at the hairs. In a pinch, mineral oil will for a short time but isn't thick enough, so stick with refined Lard Oil like the Old Timers did...
