If you do use milk with enzymes, and are concerned about delamination, how about pressing them in a heated environment? It doesn't take much. 118F will kill the enzymes in milk.

Bulls Eye Amber cut with DA gives maple a really nice yellowed/aged look. Plus you can use it for your sanding/shaft sealer. You can do the whole shaft and then epoxy over it on the butt. Might...

I slip a large fender washer (or two) onto the pin to protect the cue and use vice grips with a piece of scrap leather to grab the pin. Hasn't failed me yet but I did have one where I had to use my...

Epoxy finish questions

Hi guys,

Three coats of Bullseye cut 3:1 with denatured alcohol
Light scuff with a...

I've since sanded the entire cue. I was having a hard time getting through all the CA when I had the brilliant (possibly super stupid) idea of using my random orbital disc sander on it while the...

I think that's exactly what happened. Sandpaper grabbed so hard that it shifted the finish and broke the bond with the wood.

Epoxy without the hardener! That's brilliant! Shouldn't have any ill effects when epoxying the pin in. Thanks Joey.

Tapping and wax

On, for example, tapping a butt for joint pin, I've seen folks here mention waxing the tap cutting threads. Seems like for that to be effective the full depth of the hole, you'd need to re-wax the...

I think the theory behind this is to give added shear strength, which super glues lack. When most tips pop off, it's do to shear (side) force when not hitting center ball. I've never seen a tip...

Yeah, I'd like to get the large bore headstock with a 4 jaw chuck, and then use my existing standard headstock with 3 jaw as my tailstock or steady rest.
So much to learn. So much money to spend.

Been watching this guy's videos and seeing some pretty cool stuff. I'm pretty new at this and by no means a machinist. I think my MidAmerica lathe has quite a bit of runout at the chuck.

1/2" Capped Ferrule. Thoughts?

Had a friend bring me this the other day. 1/2" capped ferrule with a 5/16" tenon length.
If you look closely you can see an air gap. I'm pretty new at this but all the short ferrules I've seen...
