View Full Version : Shaft Rolls OK Alone - But Wobbles When Assembled

08-12-2008, 09:50 AM
I've got a cue shaft that has a bit of rollout in the middle when rolled alone. The tip doesn't move off the table, but you can see light in the middle as it glides over the table.

The problem is, when I assemble the cue, it rolls very badly, with the tip moving off the table.

The butt rolls fine alone and rolls straight with the other shaft as well, so I assume the butt is straight and the rollout in the shaft is the problem.

Any thoughts on this? The cue doesn't seem to play terrible, but knowing the warp is there definitely bothers me...

Most likely the face (flat surface at shaft joint) isn't perfectly flat. Any cue maker can put it in his lathe and face it off.
