    Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

    If I had spent the money for this years ago I would have saved myself at least a hundred dollars. This is a clever design. No matter how well you clean your bristle brushes inevitably get stiff after storing them for a long time. I still clean the brush the same way but now hang them in diesel and whenever I have to paint or varnish I take them out, give them a quick spin in a bucket and I am ready to go.

    I would not buy it again

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

    • Seals well enough

    Cons

    • Expensive
    • Flimsy
    • Vessel gets wider and the rack falls down

    Best Uses

      Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

      I use the brush keeper with kerosene. Once the kerosene is added, the sides of the plastic vessel bulge, and the rack falls down with all the brushes. A previous review said he added a clamp, which is a good idea, though it should not be needed. It should have been designed and built better. It is way overpriced for a piece of tupperware that does not hold the brushes as designed.

      Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

      I have not used this yet, but have tried to build my own similar containers to hold paint brushes in solvent. This is a great design and definitely better than anything I came up with. Looking forward to clean varnish jobs with this container.

      overpriced!

      By DMS

      Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

      [...] sells these identical containers without the rack for [$]bucks. Bend a few pieces of wire from coat hooks to arrange aroung the sides and save yourself $35. Plus by making individual hangers you can adjust how high or low the brushes hang. Great idea just overpriced!

      Handy, but loses its shape

      By georgeandgracie

      About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

      Pros

      • Does the job
      • Seals well

      Cons

      • Deteriorates

      Best Uses

        Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

        Have used this for a year so far, keeping varnish brushes ready to use. It could stand to be a little taller; some brushes with long handles don't fit. Recently I had to add a clamp to it because the sides had bulged out a bit, allowing the brush rack to fall down. The clamp is a nuisance but I'll keep on using the keeper unless I find a better one.

        Expensive

        By Bobfnbw

        About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Works well to

        Cons

        • Way to expensive plastic

        Best Uses

        • Brush clean up

        Comments about Jamestown Distributors Paint Brush Keeper:

        While the brush keeper works as advertised, essentially it is just a tupperware container with a "T" in it to hold the brushes off the bottom. For this, I would think 20 bucks. At this price not really worth it, unless you keep real expensive brushes, then I could see it.
        I use it, like it, but wish it was cheaper.

        The keeper works exactly as advertised. Save and preserve your expensive, high quality brushes with this unit. I saved a bundle on varnish brushes alone!
