    420 Scotchweld

    Anybody have to replace a joint pin that has been installed with the Scotchweld 420? I've had two of them recently. It doesn't seem to break down as easy as epoxy with heat. Both took a couple reheats to get the job done.

    Triangle and Triumph Tips

    It is my understanding that some of their materials don't originate, but travel through Britain.

    Triangle and Triumph Tips

    The lock down of Britain is keeping material from getting to the factory. Also having to ship by boat instead of air has driven up their cost like 400%. What a year...

    Are table spots mandatory?

    Not sure about a rule, but the spot protects the cloth from wearing out.

Long story short... Ron's Daughter got me in touch with Ron's widow. She is selling the DVD/book, but it was mostly by...

    Triangle and Triumph Tips

    Is it just me, or has Tweeten lost their ability to make tips at all? I know this sounds harsh, but I cut 4 off the same cue today before I got one to shape that wasn't mush. I've sent back boxes of Triumph's and they sent me two boxes back for my inconvenience. Some of the tips are very soft to...

    Narrowed Tenons

    Got this in for a tip and ferrule replacement. Got me to wondering. Has anyone else noticed the the tenon looking like it was put into a pencil sharpener.

    Opinions wanted on clear finishes.

    The tip on which CAs to use was the ticket! Those blotches didn't appear at first. They showed up after letting it set about an hour. I thought it was some type of reaction to the ring material I was using, so I coated with epoxy first, and then applied the CA. Same thing happened. Using the...
