    Old Gold Crown 3 Possible Restoration

    I know, but I am a bit stuck as I live in WA and they don't play the game here and I can't buy a decent table other than Chinese knockoffs. I have looked at a Rasson or Diamond but they want 11K+ for them.

    Old Gold Crown 3 Possible Restoration

    Hi, thank you I will have a look. They want 3K AUD but I am trying to get them down. I am guessing it will take a minimum of 3K to get it transported and then the body restored with new cloth and cushions. So I will be in for at least 6K, possibly more if i get any surprises..

    Selling Cues without Pictures

    I look through the For Sale section every now and then and am just wondering if people buy cues that are advertised without photos of the cue? Personally I need to see what I am buying first. However, everyone is different, so can anyone tell me why they would do it?

    Burton Spain Joint

    Quick question, Does anyone know what Spain used as a material in the butt joint for this cue? Is it just a phenolic material that he has tapped a thread straight into? If so would this hold up over time? I am looking at using the same design with a 5/16x18 pin inserted into the shaft for...
