    Jacoby ultra super pro shaft turn down

    I won't turn down low deflection shafts. Most of them have pretty thin ferrule walls to lower end mass. If you turn them down, you are asking for failure imo.

    What air compressor are you using?

    The Kobalt quiet series is around 70 decibels but it doesn't put out much volume. I'm going to go with a California Air compressor for now and buy a screw type with dryer when I build my new shop. I picked up a 1 hp 8 gallon California Air on FB Marketplace and you can hardly hear that thing...

    What air compressor are you using?

    I was looking at the 15020C or the 10020CHAD but I may save up a lil more and go with the 20 gallan 4 hp model? I think it would do anything I would ever need it to do in my cue shop. I went and bought a used Charge Air Pro 4 hp 20 gallon that looks and works as new off FB Marketplace...

    What air compressor are you using?

    The things I do that need the most cfm are coring and spraying clear. I don’t plan on running any big air tools.

    making a cue more forward-balanced- ?

    A purple heart shaft and a heavier joint pin will make something forward weighted. I core my cues with heavier wood up front or use a steel joint, when a customer wants something forward weighted.

    What do you prefer to break with? Heavy or light?

    I use light 18-18,5 but people that can't swing it fast need a heavier break cue. I think that a person needs to play around and see what works best for them.

    RPM Range of lathes

    Make sure to get the smaller spindle for your motor. It will slow it down a little but will give it more torque. I run those motors on my two Taig lathes.

    Huebler shaft inserts?

    I have regular inserts but this customer wants the new shaft as close to original as possible. I can make my own but thought there might be a source for them?
