Palmer Model I Before Pics - 12-21-2017, 07:49 AM

These are a few before pictures of above cue. On the one hand I could say that Paul and Ellen really outdid themselves, but the reality is that they do this level of work everyday.

Wow. I really appreciate the restoration work. A refinish is one thing. A nice restoration is another.

Time, dedication to detail...

The Palmers were such a cool line of cues. Their designs and their evolution is so representative of the times. The blanks from various sources also help make them special. Inlays done with razors and small chisels.

Worth every bit of effort to find them and save them.

I love the history.

And I appreciate so much that you show them off here.

Palmer First Catalog Model 8 and Pre-Catalog Model E both made with somewhat rare light blue/aqua rings.

Both models are house cue conversions, received in excellent condition but both needing finishing. The Model E on the right was purchased with no finish. The previous owner, a cue maker had sanded the forearm and removed the wrap. The Model 8 on the left had numerous dings and damage to the finish on the forearm and also had no wrap.

Both were refinished and rewrapped by Paul Drexler / PFD Studios in Marlborough, CT.
