I know this just might be the stupidest post yet, but would soaking a piece of chalk in milk for a while and then baking it do anything different to it. I have had that random idea stuck in my head for the last few days.

I still don't think it is going to taste very good.:killingme::rotflmao1:

Travis, what do you think that doing this will do?

I have never heard of it, but that doesn't mean that there is no method behind the concept.

I would like to here your reasoning for doing this so that I can see where this idea is coming from!!!!

Thanks Craig:)

Good idea. I do it with my shaft and have astounding results.

BEST IDEA EVER!!! Why use chalk in cube shape when you can dissolve it in milk??

Am I seeing a market for spray on chalk????? :eek:

I think your chalk would probably smell sour and reek of mold and yogurt :D jk
Try it and let us know how the experiment goes,

- box of master blue chalk... $3.00
- Carton of milk.... $2.59
- Oven time.... unknown
-------------> Idea and result.... PRICELESS :)

I know it is not the best idea (or post) but you have a long way to go to be the stupidest. If you need some sort of reference as to what you need to shoot for send me a PM. :)

I think Edison started out like this - if milk doesn't work, then try half and half, cream, butter, cottage cheese. After 1000 tries you'll know 1000 things that don't work, but the 1001st........

No, really, I would drink the milk and try Blue Diamond chalk instead.

Man, I usually mind my own business and don't say this to people too often, but man, lay off the drugs, they're obviously doing more harm than good.

What the hell, what do you got to lose. take a chalk out of your case and put it in some milk. I would think it might just dissolve though.

Spray on chalk? Hey, you might be on to something! We already have the "Chalk-Off" product (http://pooltablecleaner.com/), so why not a "Chalk-On" product? :D

Did you come up with this because you've heard players putting leather tips in milk to make them harder? The calcium in milk makes it harder, don't know how this would apply to chalk.

I played Ronnie Alcano in a Joss event couple years back. Every so often he would heat up the chalk with a lighter. Probably so it'd stick better but I never asked.

If your going to try this, as I’m guessing the idea is based off of soaking tips in milk to make tips like 'milk duds', remember that for the tips you need to re-compress them in a vice. So don't forget that step.....


:) sorry couldn’t resist. My guess is that it wouldn’t do anything, but kudos on at least posting what I have to assume is definitely an original concept, and who knows if whoever first thought of soaking tips in milk got the same reaction.

Milk contains proteins (casiens, I think) that act like a glue and bind the particles of an Elk Master tip together. When compressed and dried, the tip is hard but retains some of the "soft" qualities of the Elk Master, like grabbing the cue ball. It seems like if you did this with chalk, even if you could avoid making a total mess, it would be hard and scratchy and not work very well. But good luck...let us know how it turns out!

I can't see the chalk absorbing the milk, so i don't think it would do much. But now that you brought it upo, you have to try it and post the results. I know heating chalk makes it grab better, but don't know what effect the milk will have, if any.

Cocobolo Cowboy is falling down on the job. I would expect a response like this one from him. :thumbup:

I think you should try it and report your results. Make sure you take notes on how much milk and how much time and what temp, etc., in case something wonderful comes of this whole thing. The best recipes for magic happen when nobody takes notes and therefore, nobody can ever repeat them. :(

Well i think he is working on the idea of blue berry flaverd milk. And the next time i get my hands on chalk i will put it in my milk and drink it. I know sounds nasty but when we have down time here in iraq we get really bored and start doing stupid things like snorting wasbi sauce

Forget the milk put it in some red bull, maybe youll get a little extra juice on the cue ball.

and if that dont work then just drink the redbull chalk concoction itll DEFINITELY do something for you. (or to you) :D

HMMMM smoking the chalk? Maybe thats the pinoys secret. Ill have to pass the info on. Theres some guys at the hall whove smoked eveything else trying to get a little edge. Why not the chalk too. :grin-square: Just toss it in the ole pipe and light it up. :P





BTW this is the funniest thread ive seen in a while.

haha - this is a hilarious thread

yeah - you are going to have fun with the experiment, but it will "ruin" the chalk.

Chalk is Sand + Mineral (to put it laymenish) - its a ground up abrasive.

By soaking it in milk you will "seal" the compound together and make it smoother - not more abrasive.

You could look at possibly using something like a vinegar possibly? But I think no matter what you aren't going to improve on the chemical compound unless you know chemistry.

Deffinatly interesting. I don't think chalk and milk will do anything magical. But what if there was a better way to apply chalk. A way that got it only on the tip and no wear else, when applying it. Maybe it is about time the technique of chalking got a little more high tech?

Still this sh*t is funny.

If we don't gain anything from the milk masters then maybe there is a poster who has a table who has Simonis on it that needs to be replaced soon and we can try soaking the table in milk. If it doesn't change it for the better then you needed new cloth anyway.:)

Who wants to volunteer to soak their blank shafts in milk, have it straighten and dried out and make actually milk shafts out of them? Maybe one of the cue makers would try it. How about it Varney? lol

Proposal doesn't not include or provide the shaft blanks for testing :D

If it makes the chalk worse, then even better! Just replace the chalk on the table for your opponent to use... :D TRAP CHALK, i guess I'd buy that

That's how the tin-foil helmet was invented.

That's also how GWB got elected as president lol jk

I mean if we have cues with laser sights, pool shoes, so why knock milk chalk?

I am curently working on a formula to make spray on chalk, you wait and see :D jk

Maybe tube chalk, like a tip tip/ lip stick thing with pillar shape chalk refill. You can stick your cue in it and spin it Paul Newman style to get chalk on your tip but keep your hands clean of chalk :eek: invention baby, yeah! lol
