    What do you do here?

    Need some advice... I have a booth in a pool room where I perform most of my repair work. A customer of mine came up to me and said a Kamui clear I put on popped off his cue while shooting. This is not a usual occurrence for me and I always stand behind what I do. When he gave me the shaft, I...

    one cues

    Anyone know anything about One Cues? The one I saw was a gold embossed rose on a black cue, with a not so well done faux leather wrap. They're selling them at a local dealer for about 600, and there's no way I would pay that for what looks to be a cheap Chinese cue. Any info? And I would love to...

    Cant find a picture

    I seem to remember there being a picture of the "ghost" at a table somewhere in the forum, but I can't seem to find it. I seem to recall that you couldn't see his face, but he was at the table, either racking or standing at the edge, I don't remember. Anyone know what I'm babbling about...

    Tip install prep

    Do you guys do any tip prep upon receiving your tips? The bar cue tip thread made me curious. I had issues with the lepros having such a wide range of hardnesses in the same box that I started grading the box upon arrival. A friend received several different ways from several cuemakers, but...

    Okay, a little controversy here. Cuemakers (builders, assemblers, whatever you may be at the moment, however, I'm not looking for resellers, or collectors opinions) what do you think of the recut marketing? Personally, while I know the kind of work involved, and personally, this is what I am...

    Hanging wood

    Two Questions here: 1) At what point do those of you hang shafts, butts, rounds or squares hange them up? After the first cut, later on? Is there anything wrong with hanging squares immediately after purchasing them, instead of stickering/stacking them on shelves? 2) What is the exact...

    Tip Hardness Tester

    Does anyone actually use a durometer for tips? I believe I previously saw one on Porper's site, but it doesn't seem to be there anymore, or my memory could be faulty. I'm just curious as to how important true measurements of the tip hardness was to everyone. Anyone have a homemade remedy or...
