I am placing an order tomorrow for the tip tool, and a new shaft burnisher.. I had just one question, does anyone know the difference between the "Pro" model as opposed to the regular aluminum model? They look the same to me, but the price difference says otherwise.

As always, thanks for any input y'all.

I make them and I prefer the regular model. The "pro" model was done to meet requests for silicon carbide abrasive. While some clearly prefer it, I much prefer and personally use the standard aluminum tool.

The Pro Model is a pain to make thus the higher price.

I used the Willard shaper for years and bought the Last4Ever regular Aluminum model about 6 months ago. I still carry the Willard in my cue case, but haven't used it since I bought the Last4Ever. Just a terrific tool. You'll be very happy with it.

Here's my Last4Ever Review and Marketing Photo Shot.

But, bear in mind, I also am using the Pocket Lathe. And if you didn't get one of these, maybe you should!!!


This happened to be a shaft that I put a phenolic ferrule/tip on for breaking. I'm now experimenting with putting a leather tip on it (some rulez don't permit phenolic tip). I don't have my lathe anymore (still back in Mass), so I whipped out the Pocket Lathe and Last4EVer to work on this tip.

let me give my review of this tool aswell, I bought this tool, the nickle one, and let me tell you, it is the best tool I have ever used in my life, my friends loved it, and I purchased 4 of them later on, 2 dime, 2 nickle.

I believe that this it the only tool you would ever need, it does everything, and better of it all that the tool would never ever fail to do the shape perfect, I mean ever, its always contestant on doing the same exact 100% shape that was done previously, so I'm so used to that specific shape and I love the tool.

Thank you for creating it.

I really appreciate the great comments. Over the past three years I have shipped to just about every state in the US and I am up to 12 countries ranging from Europe to Asia and beyond

My biggest thrill comes from when I'm watching a steamed event and see someone pull one out during a match. It is also pretty cool when I get approached in pool rooms when someone points me out as the tip tool guy. I now carry a supply in my car for on the spot demand

Watch for my banner behind the streaming table at the upcoming tournament at Four Bears Casino.

Thanks again

hi joel, whats the lifespan of this tool given that I use it regulary for my cues and friends cue, say that I use it once a day, or every other day, to take down few layers of tips, as you can see i bought mine in 2013 and it still works, but do you think that the material thats in the curvey side have a lifespan which in this case i need to buy another one?

I just got mine a few days ago. I have to say that after over 40 years of playing and using different tools, this is truly the easiest and best tool to get a nice shape on your tip.

I got the nickel radius just because I'm old school and had been using a tip tapper and rasp for god knows how long and I had gotten kind of used to having a flatter tip. This shaped my Ultraskin M up nicely, just as advertised, and I burnished it afterward using the leather side. Didn't realize what I'd been missing! Great spin and grab. Tried the scuffer today and it roughed up the glaze on the Triangle on my Huebler very nicely too.

Joel seems like a good guy and the tool's supposed to last "4ever" so how can you go wrong right?

Good to hear from you. Under normal use it should easily last for better than ten years if not twenty. I have never worn one out. I have had one returned for repairs and that was due to a commercial cue repair business using it on all their tip while the tip was spinning at speed on a lathe which burned the abrasive materials. I have since spoken with him and he now just uses it for final shaping by hand and has no problem. (he uses my 4 inch long 4 sided commercial tool)

The Aluminum Oxide abrasive used in my tool is designed to cut metal. You are using it on leather. More importantly, it is how you use it. I shape my tip when I first put it on and check it frequently the first month or so while it is settling in. I scuff my tip every day before I play & I alternate between rolling the flat side to break up any glazing with using the radius side "very lightly" to assure shape. If you use the shaper excessively every day all you are doing is removing perfectly good tip material.

Lastly, I like mine a little broken in where the abrasive is slightly less aggressive. Much like the Q-Wiz where I take two of them and rub them together to knock down the abrasive before I use them on my shaft.

Thanks for the support, hope that helps.

Joel


Also, if you become your room's tip shaper guy you can reduce the useful life. Tell your bud's that for the price of a couple of beers they can actually buy one :)

I was the guy who had the last forever needing to be repaired. We were indeed misusing the tool and joel fixed it for me. I have purchased about a dozen of his tools for myself, for my repair business, for fellow pool players, and for gifts.

Not only is it the best tool I have ever used, it is the best tool anyone that I have given personal belief as well. Joel is the best individual for customer service. If this isn't a gem in the pool world, I don't know one exists.

Great product, great seller, not much else can be asked. Joel, thanks for such a wonderful product! Each of my customers are excited the tip comes back with perfect shape, and ready to play.

Received it this week. Simple and functional. I reshaped (read properly shaped my tip), and burnished better than anything I've tried in the past.

Not something you use constantly, but a great tool to have when needed. Easily the best of the gaggle of them I own.

Joey, i imagine the issue is that I do not or cannot sell these through wholesalers and retailers. When I looked into doing that I found that the wholesaler wants to double the price to the retailer who in turn wants to double the price to the consumer which would either make the tool too expensive or I would have to sell below my materials cost excluding my labor.

I may look into mass producing in the future but for now the only place you can buy them is on my web site and while I have shipped them to most states and a dozen countries the tool is still not in wide spread use.

Ebay isn't a bad start, but I would also suggest:

- You asked the wrong wholesellers. 100% markup for a wholeseller is steep, there
are plenty who will take a lot less.
- You are alluding to $5+ in material cost, that should be less than $2 (that is purely material, no labor/overhead).

When I made them out of Oak I was in that price range for my cost. The cost of the aluminum and more so the cost of machining the radius and the slot for the scuffer (so the tool doesn't scratch the surface you sit it on) drive up the cost. I have them patented and have done some research on having them mass produced. I probably need to revisit that.

Thanks for the input.

The "regular" aluminum model on your website is $19.95, correct? (In Nickel radius or Dime radius).

It sure seems to me that people who spend $20 in ONE EVENING playing pool, would want to have the best tip tool that money can buy and one that will last indefinitely.

The only problem you have for the customers you sell is that your only hope of selling more to them is if they lose the one they bought. Mine looks like the day I bought it and it gets plenty of use.

correct Joey, the Standard model in either Dime or Nickel is $19.95 & the combo model with both Dime and Nickel is $29.95

The combo model is 25% thicker (⅝" vs ") to allow ffor the radius to be cut into both sides
Both Combo & Standard have Mushroom Repair and Burnishing surfaces
The Standard model has an additional Scuffer side that the combo does not (you can still scuff using the shaper very lightly)

While they don't wear out, I sell a lot to repeat customers because they lose theirs, their friends steal them & I get a big hit around Christmas because there aren't too many $20 gifts out there that someone actually likes.

Totally agree about trying Amazon. I believe they do far more volume than ebay.

Wish there was some way that prospective buyers could read these AZB comments, I'll bet it would convince a lot of people. I just ordered my first one from Joel yesterday based solely on what I've read here by folks who know what they're talking about. Oh, and by the way... "Thanks!!"

OK, you convinced me, the tip tools are now available on Amazon.com as well as eBay.

However, there are so many products on Amazon I couldn't find my tip tools unless I searched for "last4ever tip tools" which is kind of funny.

If you google "last4ever" you get to my web site and a number of referrals to AZB to find reviews, but, on Amazon searching "last4ever" alone does not get you to my tools.

AZB & other word of mouth are still the main source of sales.

Thanks for all of your suggestions and support.

Joel - Yes it's hard to find on Amazon. I noticed that the words 'pool' or even 'cue' don't appear in your descriptions. It may not be clear to people exactly what it is, and, more importantly, it may not get linked to generic searches for "pool cue tip tool" or as alternatives to other tip tools out there. Good luck, I love mine.

Thanks, when you set up each product in Amazon they give you a choice of 5 "search terms"

I used the following:

last4ever
billiards
pool
pool cue
tip shaper

any thoughts would be appreciated

I just bought one of the 'Pro' models in dime size. Came in today, tried it out as soon as I got into the house. All I can say is WOW. Nice shaper, I haven't had a chance to try the scuffer side yet, but it looks like it will do the job well. After using it, a little cleaning out with a pencil eraser and it was good as new.

Nice tool Joel! Great job!

I just bought one of the 'Pro' models in dime size. Came in today, tried it out as soon as I got into the house. All I can say is WOW. Nice shaper, I haven't had a chance to try the scuffer side yet, but it looks like it will do the job well. After using it, a little cleaning out with a pencil eraser and it was good as new.

Nice tool Joel! Great job!

Finally ordered one and wow the shipping was fast. This just replaced 3 things in my case and I couldn't be happier.

Is your price for the standard model dime tip still $19.95? I purchased one from you last year and like it so much that I'd like to buy more for my billiard buds. Thanks, Cliff

Thanks Joel. I noticed that you have it for sale at Amazon for the same price. Still very good value, as mine looks as though it will last 4 ever.

I would recommend that all of your AZB fans take a couple of minutes to write a "Customer Review" for you at Amazon. Even if they have purchased your tip tool directly from you (as I did), they can still write a review at Amazon. Each additional review would certainly help to increase your sales.

I have gotten a chance to use this product recently and have to say it is well built and does the job excellently.

That would be awesome. I have a few great reviews but "a few" being like 3 or 4

Thanks. Joel.

Okay, all of you AZBilliard members who have previously written such glowing reports about Joel's fantastic Last4Ever tip tool. I had never heard of this tool until I (fortunately) happened across this thread and read all of your comments. That's why I decided to buy it!! So thanks for steering me in the right direction! BUT... please go to Amazon.com. Punch in "Last4Ever Tip Tool" and write an appropriate review so that others will learn about this amazing product and Joel will reap the just rewards he so richly deserves for his ingenious efforts.

Question for the maker... Can this tool be used with a lathe? I have a home-built drill lathe that I just use for tip changes and shaft cleaning.

It was designed to be used by hand. it can also be used with a lathe but not with the lathe spinning at high speed. I build and repair cues and when I used the tip tool when the shaft is in the lathe I have the lathe off & just rotate the chuck by hand.

here is a video on using the tip tool

That's a great video Joel! Definitely covered all the bases! The Last 4ever Tip Tool is the best on the market! Rugged, functional, effective...and affordable. It's the last tip tool you'll ever need! :thumbup:

Were you able to play any with Larry? He's been going down to Amy's once in a while. I was just up in Orlando last month teaching at Cue Phoria. :D

I have had one of the tools for a number of months and am quite satisfied with it.

It is a great addition to your cue case for a quick and neat reshape or scuff of your cue's tip.

Buy several and gift your friends. Don't forget to save one for yourself!

I was just down in Stuart 2 weekends ago for the grand opening of Riverside Billiards. They moved a couple of miles south.

A really nicely done pool room & 100% no smoking.

I'll buzz you next time
