What's the belt width and pitch of the 'bumps'? Looks like it's larger than a GT2 style, but it might be one of the other fairly common ones.

Yeah, that one will do it. It handles 1HP motors and will replace both the Phase-A-Matic and the Forward/Off/Reverse switch. Don't know if the knob speed control is what you're looking for. It also...

I wondered what it was all over the bolt on the RichQ I've been getting ready to work on. The bolt had what looked like dust all over it, exactly as if it'd been glued into position and then over...

No, if I didn't want to learn I wouldn't be asking questions. :)

I did some wondering about it as well, and believe it's not determined by the tip size but by the cue ball. Remember the tip is only one factor, since the tip wil be in contact with the cue the...

I've got a mid 70s Rich Q cue that has seen better days. The lacquer finish is pretty yellow and has been abraded away in places, enough so the joint is starting to corrode. I's like to refinish well...
