  • Wherever you choose. I chose because I bought some tooling and other stuff.
    I have the A2Z QCTP I bought from In fact, I ordered some more tool holders from them today. I've experience NO problems when using it. Mine is mounted all the way back on the slide and the only time I have to adjust anything is when I'm using the parting tool holder and it's at the butt of the cue. I've been using mine for months and it's the nuts!
    These are the things I bought...that I should have bought right off the bat!

    Hightower Compression Die for Ferrules and Joints
    Reamer Set

    5 and/of 15 minute epoxy - I use this if I have a little slop with my joint pins/joints
    Loctite Gel Super Glue - I use it for tips, ferrules, joints, joint pins...everything!
    Sandpaper - 180/220/400/600/800/1000/1500/2000
    Soft Scrub - Takes the place of Unique Shaft Cleaner
    Mequires Carnuba Car wax - Takes the place of every cue wax out there
    Coping saw

    Mind you, I'm converting house cues and eventually going to build cues. After I started installing pins, I found I needed a lot more than I had and there was no standard I used so I was all over the place and ended up buying more stuff than I really needed. Hope this helps, feel free to ask me anything.
    Here's the list I started out with...the majority of this was based on cue repair, etc.
