    how to design a true parabolic/conical tapered cue- ?

    No. Curves can have asymptotes. The boundary of an asymptote is linear but the line that approaches it is still a curve. It has to be a curve since it never reaches it. The shaft would gradually increase in diameter from the tip but slowly enough that it would look like a "pro taper" or very...

    I often want the impossible in my life as well. A lot of the LD "conical" shafts with small tips aren't really conical, they are much closer to three linear tapers. With a cutter. No, seriously. If the tip is 11.75 mm and the joint is a typical .845", there is only one way to make a concial...

    Project Tomahawk ferrule material.

    It takes a finish well, no problems reported by any customers. I have sprayed autoclear directly over Tomahawk, and have applied a very thin epoxy basecoat and then sprayed. No problems with either for me.
