Micro-Mark Ultra Fine Fibreglass Brush

Hi Folks,
Just wondering if any scratchers in Australia would have a spare Micro-Mark Ultra Fine fibreglass brush and spare refills that I could purchase?...

While I love the effects that these can produce I confess that I really hate these things because they are so dangerous, but I have no choice but to purchase one to speed my work up.
I have two galleries here and possibly another one in Sydney shortly who want to do an exhibition of my SB's, but I am bogged down with fine detail using a scratchknife for everything which is just ridiculously too slow to get anything done, I'm just getting nowhere!.
I dont use credits cards so it's impossible for me to purchase directly from Micro-Mark as they only accept credit cards, money orders and cheques. The only thing I can think of is to send money to another aussie scratcher and ask them if they would mind making an order for me..... if they dont have a spare FG brush to sell me. I would be highly appreciative if someone could help me out. I live in Townsville, north QLD.
Cheryl.

Oops forgot to mention that I would send the money first of course - along with any postage or other costs involved!.

I only have one (I used to have three but I'm stuffed if I can find the other two) but to be quite honest, Micro-mark were quite quick at sending them so if I were you, I would just order them over the net. I can't remember how long it took but it wasn't too long. Mind you, if it was a couple of weeks, that might be an annoying wait since you need to speed up now.

Well done on the galleries!!

Thank you Patrick.
I have an account at Micro-Mark, but it is totally useless to me - unless I can get payment to them!. You should have seen the problems I had trying to get payment to Dick Blicks - I sent them a special bank cheque first and it 'got lost in the Christmas mail', so that cost me a month in time, (but the bank refunded the money so that was good!)
Then I asked Blicks if they would accept a bank transfer, as they wouldn't accept Western Union (because that wasn't a secure and safe way to send money overseas); so I did a bank transfer which cost $65 - $40 on this end and $25 on the other! (or vice-versa).
I may have to ask Micro-Mark if they would accept a bank transfer hopefully they do - even though it costs an arm and a leg!. other than that I'm totally stuffed!. Bloody credit cards - I hate the mongrel things - and wont use them, but you cant even hire a car without them!.

How about if I order it for you. Since I seem to have lost my other ones I need some more myself. If you want me to, let me know and also if you want refills.

Re: Micro-Mark Ultra Fine Fibreglass Brush

Thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate it!. Up until this morning I've been in total panic mode!!!!!.

Thank you Kristen - I did have a Visa card which was tied directly to a bank account, but had to cancel that as some mob on the internet started to suck money out our bank!.

Thank you very much Patrick that's very kind of you to offer, but luckily everything will be OK now.......please just go ahead with your order!. I contacted Micro-Mark yesterday via email and asked if they would accept a bank transfer, they got back to me straight away this morning and said they would - at a processing cost of $20 on their end). SO I spent 3 hours on their website this morning and found lots of other nifty gadgets ...that I just have to buy....because I.....NEED them!!! Thanks again Patrick, I hope I haven't held your order up!.

Re: Micro-Mark Ultra Fine Fibreglass Brush

I haven't ordered from Micro Mark yet because they don't take PayPal and I hate using credit cards online....I stumbled across this site this morning in the search for an alternative to fiberglass brushes. www.esslinger.com

It's a jewelry/watch repair site....and they have some of the things I wanted to get from Micro Mark....AND they take PayPal! Squeeee! I just placed an order. Yay!

Re: Micro-Mark Ultra Fine Fibreglass Brush

Just a safety tip for ordering with credit cards online: If you use the onscreen keyboard and click it with your mouse the keyloggers are not supposed to be able to see it.
