Tip Burnishing Liquid, to use or not to use? - 09-01-2017, 08:29 AM

So I know the majority of time you can use a piece of leather to burnish the sides of a tip, but I see there is other things like Porper Tip Touch and Tip Crystal to give it that shine and protect from mushrooming. Has anyone ever just used clear nail polish sparingly to accomplish the same thing?

I am becoming the go to person for Tip Replacement in my area and I want to try to go the extra mile. Any other suggestions are welcome.

This may sound too simple but I get great results with shaft wax and a new dollar billed folded in half lengthwise.

There's nothing wrong with keeping it simple

First time I ever used a LePro, Jack Taylor showed me how he did his. He used black shoe polish on the sides and then burnished it with a piece of cardboard.

You have to be careful not to get it on your ferrule though. Back then a lot of the house cues had black ferrules so it didn't matter, but you don't want to get it into the pores on a white ferrule.

Nothing simpler than saliva burnished on with the back of a piece of sandpaper.
