Mack and Sons brush company has designed these brushes to the
specifications of Tom Kelly who prefers a larger size ferrule and
Tom Kelly's grandfather, O.Z. Crozier, (aka) "The Baron" of Baron
Roth & Kelly started striping wagons & buggies for the Studebaker
Bros. in the early 1900's. He then striped at the Ford Motor Co.
for over 25 years through the 20's-30's and part of the 40's.
"In the early 50's when striping returned to cars in a custom
style, I asked the Baron to stripe my friend's car and he did. My
grandfather thought it might be good to go into business striping
and he asked me, Kelly, to work with him, so I did. I've been
striping every day for the last 53 years. The only brush the Baron
and I have ever used is a #1 & #2 Mack Sword Striper from the
Andrew Mack Brush Co. For all the new stripers coming into the
business, don't be afraid to use a larger brush, you can do
anything the smaller brush can do, but the larger brush will go
further on a single load of paint."
