What's the best way to burnish a tip without a lathe?

I have a joe proper plastic burnisher but it seems too tricky since you can't see what it's doing until you pull it off. Sometimes depending on the shaft it'll make the overly conical.

Any advice? Anyone use the tip burnishing liquid from tiger?
Thanks,

(To the tune of the Sheriff John Birthday song)

Put another candle on your birthday cake,
your're another year old to-day!

You'll ban some fool and slap some hands,
you'll mon-i-tor a thread,

And while away, another day, up pops Th-om's ugly head!

So put another candle on your birthday cake your're another year old to-day!

Happy Birthday Dave!

What are Full Time Cue Makers doing about Health Care

[QUOTE=fugdbdt;4526761]You see you are a producer. In a government run by those who wish to redistribute wealth, producers are the ones who get punished because they want someone else's vote. It is class warfare. They are stealing our freedom by telling those in their voting block they will get everything for nothing. Those people who believe the lie will be hurt also. There is no Santa Clause.

Ring Around The Rosies, Pocket Full of Ones-ies, Ashes, Ashes they all get SHOT DOWN!

It's Thursday night and that's my night to let loose and get the Ring Game going!!!!

This is one of my favorite games to play bc it's cheap Gambling. My game is pretty tight defensively but man i gotta say it's pretty stressful playing that way. Sometimes ya gotta just let your hair down and just show some fire power without the fear of selling out.

For those unfamiliar to the game you can play 9 or 10 ball but more than 3 players i recommend 10 ball. The object of...

DREAM TEAM Basketball and Mosconi Team USA Parallels

Posted 12-25-2013 at 06:38 PM by IamCalvin06

Just watched the 2013 Mosconi Cup. I heard it was bad so i just put it off until i felt like watching a blood bath.

The first thing that comes to mind is when the USA basketball team didn't win the Olympic gold. It was such a disappointment with the amazing talent that USA possessed. They had by far the best players on paper if you make a player by player comparison. What happened the following year? No more pros... Team USA was comprised of young college players, who were hungry....

Posted 12-24-2013 at 02:11 AM by IamCalvin06

The Jefferson's "Movin on up..."

In every pool room their lies an unspoken hierarchy or food chain if you will of pool players. Usually consisting of Pros, Shortstops, Use-to-Be's, Master League Players, Bangers, Hacks, etc.

If you're like me, you know where you fall in the ranks. However, I have always believed that i'm a Jefferson and i will move to the upper Eastside. Today, was just a confirmation of that. On occasion I am asked to play by one of the...

Welcome to the first ever edition of my blog. A little background check and we'll be off on our adventure of Capitol Gains, Spherical collisions, and Philosophical/Ethical Contradictions

I'll be your tour guide into the life of Calvin. Born and raised in the smallest of towns in the Peach State my first encounter with a pool table came at the ripe age of 13.

But hey we have plenty of time for flashbacks. Cue wavy~~ flashback lines. Let's jump right into the present....

Buying an older, less decorative Schick cue (perhaps even a conversion) and putting an aftermarket LD shaft on it would not make sense to me. If you are looking to make money by flipping the cue, I would probably consider something
