Rita, folks get very uptight about the metal ferrule when they're using
brushes for dichromate processes also, but it's mostly another one of
those old geezer tales -- unless you actually get the ferrule of the brush
in the emulsion, which I myself have never seen or heard of. However if
you think this might happen, you can be utterly and entirely safe by
coating the ferrule with clear nail polish or some other hard-drying

(In fact, whether getting the ferrule actually in the emulsion would
actually matter has been debated --- but it's easy enough to be on the
safe side.)
