This beauty is unique, and rare, and amazingly different...... All aspects of this cue flow together, and make it stand out. Cue has never been chalked, has 2 13mm shafts with ivory ferrules. ALL white on the cue is ivory.

$8900 shipped and insured. Would consider trades for a Gus, or box style cues.

Feel free to reach out with questions, or if you need more pics or info. dcbassguy@hotmail.com

I used to use one. A lot of the smaller ones you see will be hard to modify to do pool cues with. Some of the cue specific machines like I make are a little easier to do inlays and make patterns with. But if you also want to do fine engraving the 3U will do that much better.
