I tried your cold method and used some heat to try to straighten a really warped shaft. I am not sure if I was doing this incorrectly or if the warp was too severe. I went against the advice of "Do Not Add Moisture" and I wrapped the cue in a towel, binded with rubberbands, then used a clothes steamer to steam the towel. Then the high point up, I had placed the cue on books, and added a little weight to the middle of the shaft. I repeated the process seeing slight results each time. The final few attempts I had hung the towel wrapped cue so it was perfectly vertical, steamed more and then let it dry completely like this. The shaft is now completely straight. I recognize that moisture can damage the cue more, but as a last ditch effort it worked well.

Hi Manwon,how are you? im a snooker player from Australia and recently noticed your interests in Kieckhefer chalk. I have around 200 cubes total of blue,cream and the pinky red one. As i play snooker they are all no use to me as i use the green. I just was wondering if you would or would know of anybody interested to trade for some green or would sell me some green? thank you for your time. Alex
Thank you for the kind advice on the RO forum. I'd love to hear a bit about your own experiences sometime, if you can take the time for it. My own plans are on the shelf for now, but I do want to do it in a few years when I'm better prepared and able to financially.
