This invention relates to machines for making
circular lathe brushes, especially circular dental
lathe brushes, with rows of converging bristles,
i. e._. machines which drill the brush stocks and/or
?ll drilled stocks with bristles, Brushes of this
type comprise a cylindrical wooden stock which
is drilled all around its cylindrical face with two
inserting means 4, 5. Each of the stock holders
comprises a pair of side arms and a rear part
with a web between the arms carrying a rotatable
stock receiving pin 5. The forward ends of the
arms have resilient buffer means 1 associated
with the pivot pins 2 which support the holder
and the back face of the rear part has a cam

wherein a pair of stock holders are adapted to be
advanced towards and away from the drill and
bristle inserting means.
