Broken ez brush .. help

An avid fan of the large EZ brush (wheel woolies don't fit my alloys)' so after much use the metal shaft has shaped leaving just a short part left.

The main brush still has loads of life left in it, anyone had the same and managed to salvage a new handle on it somehow?

I'd send a photo an email to the supplier or manufacturer and see if you can get a replacement.

Just be polite and ask if there is anything they can help with as this has happened...

Fingers crossed

Problem is the shaft is just steel, so rust sets in and weakens it.

If you've had loads of use out of it then you've had you monies worth and time to buy a new one.
I'm on my second in 9 years.
Went for the Daytona (same brush just red) for my second as the shaft is thicker than the EZ.

Just do what Trigger did, keep changing the head and shaft, it will still be the original brush.

Thanks for all repli, was purchased 2014' yes it appears to have rusted through - I always leave out to dry and not in wet bucket etc.. (bit OCD)' it very annoying as the brush is still got loads of life left.

I'm thinking of a potential hack, using http://http://www.uktoolcentre.co.uk...xoCM-0QAvD_BwE and trying to make it fit perhaps with some strong glue...

Update, the under a quid handle from Amazon ordered, small hole drilled, screwed in place the old shaft (with hot glue gun)' little bit of glue apart from the top and job done, actually a better handle than the original ..
