    Looks like there is a definite pattern of wear in the bristles. Maybe a band saw blade cleaned?

    Metal brushes.........

    Is there any oily residue on the brush. looks to be a brush that was used for cleaning parts in a machine shop. Way back when, as a manual machinist, recutting Hydrill connections this would have been usefull for cleaning the threads before recutting........You would have the brush in a container filled with solvent, as the connection turns in the lathe you would apply the brush and remove the pipe dope..............Dirty job.............:)
