    Looks to be rather wet for next few days so going to pain the landing.
    Would like a decent cutting in brush.

    What does everyone here use?

    When I worked on the tools and was doing decorating work I used Harris brushes

    I use an angled Wooster brush from screwfix. 2.5inch I think.

    I use a Purdy elite Dale sash brush 1.5 inch, cost a bit more but still going strong after 4 years.

    We've done the study during lockdown and I only used Harris "no bristle loss" brushes, seemed fine

    My advice is to use a large brush as that way you can cut in using a large sweep which is easier and takes less time.

    Same, even with a steady hand I'll mess it up somewhere so always tape it off.

    Yeah I have a very steady hand/good dexterity but still can't match the results of using a good decorating tape.
