Did I Damage My Kapex Brushes?
« on: September 20, 2022, 01:09 AM »
I was taking apart my Kapex to do a repair and when removing the armature I chipped the top edges of my brushes. There still appears to be plenty of length but does this mean I need to replace the whole brush? Or will this all wear in? Thank you for any help.

Just sand it smooth on a bit of sandpaper so any rough edge doesn't grab on the armature and break it!
