I got one of your tools a while back and it does a great job. EXCEPT when shaping my tip it never seems to get all the way to the tip of the tip. I always seem to end up with a small (sixteenth of an inch diameter?) flat spot right at the end. The only way I can get that rounded off is to finish the shaping with a Willard.

Any advice or tips on how to overcome this? Both your tool and the Willard are dime radius, if that matters.

After you have it shaped about 90%, lay the tool on the floor, radius side up. Place the tip in the center of the tool and place one foot on each side of the tip - no need to squeeze the tip tight. Now, roll the shaft in your hands like you're starting a fire. Do this for just a second or two, no need to press down too hard. This is how it works for me.

It sounds like you are stopping the shaping process before the tip is the correct radius. If the abrasive has not contacted the center of your tip then the sldes of the tool are still hitting the shoulder of your tip tool because the tip is still too flat. All you are doing with the Willard is flattening the entire tip.

Endorsement by Danny Smith - 12-15-2017, 11:47 AM

Danny "The Shredder" Smith asked to use my Last4ever Tip Tool and was impressed with it so much that he had to have one for himself.

Saying that Danny is fastidious about the condition and shape of his cue tip is probably an understatement.
