Ferrule on revo shaft

Posted 01-24-2020 at 08:26 AM by Snooker Theory

=jrctherake;6564721]I was curious so, I had my cue guy put a ferrule on my revo long before most other cf shafts with ferrules came out.

I had my cue guy glue a very, very thin fiber pad directly to the red pad.

Then I had him glue a piece of tomahawk to the fiber pad...

Then my tip..

I started out with a full .5" ferrule. It was to much and totally changed the deflection properties of the revo.

So, I then had him tip...

First, we all agree this isn't the easiest shot on the table. So first thing, put the cue ball where the object ball is. Fire it into the long rail on the way down until you find out how much of the long rail you can hit and the ball still fall at moderate to firm speed on your table. Mark that spot just for reference. OK, still using your cue ball on the object ball

The best aspect of acquiring a high end custom is price protection.
What you paid for the cue will likely not drop due to supply & demand.

The top cue-makers have limited annual production which results in backlog
of work resulting in a long waiting list of several, if not many, years. Those cues

New to me Snooker table

Posted 11-01-2019 at 07:26 AM by BryanB
Updated 11-13-2019 at 10:18 AM by BryanB

Just picked up a Brunswick Centennial 5x10 Snooker Model C-1. I am unsure of the exact year but somewhere between 1947-1949. It is in decent shape overall. I will be setting it up next week and will take pics then. No plans to do a restoration at this time. Rail rubber seems to be good and the slates are in good shape. I will be re-using the Simonis 860 that was previously installed on it for now. Just to have something to play on. It will be going into my 1400sq/ft shop that also doubles as...

Home Room Project

Posted 09-30-2019 at 06:20 PM by cjr3559

Exactly one year ago today we broke ground on a home game room for a pool table Iíve been wanting for three decades.

As an anniversary gift to myself, thought Iíd start a blog showing the development.

Hereís the spot. We have a detached garage and the new space is built right behind it. Say goodbye to the shed, itís getting moved further back in the yard.

We did all the proper planning we could to ensure the room would fit a 9í foot table. The city...

Right that's easy to replicate. Maybe he wants to make sure the materials are exactly the same?

Back to School Once More

Posted 05-29-2019 at 07:42 AM by Nostroke
Updated 06-09-2019 at 11:45 AM by Nostroke

So I'm back in High School and as usual I'm confused and can't find my classes etc but i find a pad of 'excuse forms' for class absences and i figure I'll just use these and forget about English for a while. I do so for at least half the year.

Time goes by and I finally decide to begin attending classes-at least one anyway, and to my surprise English is being given by a no beard-still-in-his -prime David Letterman!

Letterman doesn't ask for the excuse form which i haven't...

In 1967/68 i was so busted i worked at a Car Wash- the biggest i had ever seen-On Gervais St in Columbia SC. They only had a small permanent staff because they couldnít have 40-50 workers getting paid on a rainy or otherwise lousy day with no business. They hired Shapers (guys that showed up hoping to work) on a daily basis and I was ďluckyĒ enough to get picked one beautiful Saturday near dawn.They probably hired 40 extras that day.
