    Talisman Trinity tips.

    Hi Guys. I haven't been around for a bit now. Cabelas called me back this Summer in Fishing and put me in as a permanent part time employee. Which is good because I seriously enjoy teaching people Fishing. Anyway, some time ago, Tony Jones from Talisman got a hold of myself and others to do...

    Meucci Ferrules.

    I use an older Meucci cue for League, and believe it or not, one of my favorite cues. One time, I noticed that the ferrule seemed to move a bit. I applied steam from my steam gun to it and absolutely couldn't twist it off. Funny enuff, usually when you heat glue, it crystallizes and is...

    Gun stock.

    I just bought a Winchester, 7mm. The stock has a couple of rough spots and dents on it. I will try using a wet bandage on some, and my steam gun on others. Not like clear maple, where we can use a bit of Cyano or epoxy to fill in a dent, I will be staining the stock a darker color. Deep...

    Question for Cue Guys re Helmstetter Cues.

    A Pool Buddy finds fairly decent cues at one Pawn Shop in town. On his last foray, he found a Helmstetter Snooker Cue. Sorry, I was working on all of his cues last night for the beginning of League and didn't take a picture so will describe it as best as possible. Plain, 4 points which are...

    Strychnine 5. Was delivered 30 minutes ago. Ya know, the one that I won on the last drawing. I would say, The Coolness Factor Gauge is at the top of the dial. And with the new Predator 3 shaft. Came in a nice one x two Poison Nylon case. I have League tonight so it is going to get...

    Calling all Joey's that make Cues.

    I put you on the spot in this Thread in the Main Joey. Bob was asking about what a Modified Pro Taper would be. I told him that either yourself or Rat Cue Ryan would be able to explain it better. I know it is one...

    Would any of youse guys purchase this and actually screw it together in front of anyone? I think that it should be called the Laurentian. I hope that the person who made this isn't asking much more than 10 bucks for it. Very Innovative, I guess one could say.

    Magic Eraser = Melemine Foam

    Hope this link works. Just reading an article that the Magic Eraser is just Melamine Foam. It is sold on EBay as a cleaning product. For those of us that tend to go thru a fair amount. I usually wait until I can get a Generic Brand on sale. I can't seem to find any of that any longer...

    Free cue from Pat, or Idealogist

    I received the cue today, morning delivery. It is a Filipino cue. The shaft is in need of a tenon, ferrule and tip. A couple of small wear spots on the butt, but that is an easy spot finish fix with some poly. Otherwise in very decent shape. I don't get a lot of tenon or ferrule work in...

    Speaking of Wraps.

    There is a case maker, Castillo, if that is how you spell his last name. In another thread, I made a joke about a Bacon Wrap. Now, Castillo has in his possession some nice leather wraps. For a joke, I would love to get my hands on a leather Bacon Wrap. What do you guys think, possible...

    Sale Forum

    Ya know, nothing that requires a lot of responses or anything. I know that I mentioned before that I have nothing against the new format. But, I have been spending a bit more time in the Sale Forum in the last few days than before. Getting itchy again I suppose. I haven't tried to make any...

    Hopefully, this might work.

    Just messing about one day and decided to make one. I saw an old picture of a jig that Willie Mosconi had endorsed. It was a square cut at a diagonal, nailed to a base and a wedge was used to wedge a shaft. I was going to try it but then thought that a wedge might work ok, it wouldn't account...

    Some cue repair customers.

    I didn't start this thread to complain, only to relate what I think is a bit of a funny story about customers. There is a league player, lets say that he is quite loud when he gets drunk at league. I don't fade drunken loudness all that much anyway so there was a wedge right off the bat...
