Once wax has been applied and the solvent evaporated leaving a hard but dull coat of wax behind, many people spend a great deal of time and effort rubbing over the surface with a cloth or even a lambswool bonnet on a power drill. What happens in effect is that friction is created, softening the wax and if worked too hard more wax ends up on the cloth or bonnet than remains on the workpiece. If a wax polishing brush is used all that is required is a few firm strokes to leave a beautiful waxed glow on the surface. Do not worry that the brush feels stiff, it will not scratch. Suitable for stripped pine furniture, oak beams etc.

Very good but not what I wantedI made a mistake with this one as I wanted a soft brush for finishing off a soft wax after apply over shellac. This is by no means soft but it certainly would do a fine job for what it is intended for. I just didn't read the description properly. I've now bought a fine horse hair shoe polishing brush which is what I really wanted.
