Brush Knot Types
Knotted wire wheels are a specialty of Felton Brushes; we’ve manufactured them since 1933. Different jobs require different knot types, the three kinds which Felton makes are standard, cable, and stringer beads.
Cable Twist Knot
Excellent for standard knot wire applications that need more aggressive action and is most commonly used in wheel brushes.
Stringer Bead Knot
Standard Twist Knot
Great for cleaning grooves, t-connections and welded beads, and for general surface preparation. It is used in all types of wire brushes.
Features a unique construction where the wire ends are twisted to form a “rose bud”.
Standard knot trim style. In the stringer bead trim the wire ends are cut completely.
"Long Flag" Trim
Features an open end trim style where the wire ends are cut.
Straight wire is used for knotted brushes and provides aggressive impact action which is ideal for weld cleaning, heavy deburring and other jobs that require a fast, efficient and severe cutting performance.
Crimped wire is used in a variety of Felton Brushes, including; wire wheels, saucer cup and end brushes. It’s continuous brushing action makes this wire type ideal for light deburring jobs that required a fine finish.
