    New sander "dowel or pole sander"must read!!!

    Pole or dowel sander I saw one work at Andy Gilberts shop. Was very easy to use and saved tons of time doing sanding. I think he had his setup to use only one kind of paper. It looked like a simple machine to make really. I didn't seem like they should cost as much as they do. I think it's...

    Why do cue makers do this

    The bottom line for any cue price is supply and demand. If the demand is high, usually the price is as well. If a cue maker takes a cue and sells it cheap to a dealer and the dealer makes a lot more money, why shouldn't the cue maker sell the cue and make that money? I have no problem paying...

    Is the Porper B lathe worth the $$

    I have been using one for quite a while now, about 3 or 4 years. I learned on porpers that were already 7 and 10 years old. They are great little machines for what they are. No, they aren't metal lathes. My logans beat them hands down. But I pack up my porper on a portable table everynight...

    What causes so many new shafts to warp??

    I have to agree with you. I think most new shafts warp because they are just made so fast. you really can't turn a shaft in less than 6 months and expect it to stay really straight for a long time. I'm not positive but I suspect most of this laminated shaft business started for a couple...

    what is the best way to prepare a elk master tip?

    The milkdudes are made by Jensen cues I believe. I'm not sure of the process but it's an Elk master dipped maybe in Butter milk? Not sure, I shouldn't even say anything. I think he'll sell them if you want them by themselves. As for the blade technique this is how I have alwasy put on tips...

    Help, Joint won't tighten

    I should clarify with my comment. You don't want to leave the water in the hole. Just pour it in and dump it out. Then let if dry. there will be no side effects. I've done this for years. works great. I have saved guys from replacing many shafts doing this. I"ve also bored out a 1/2...

    Help, Joint won't tighten

    A quick fix might be to pour some water into the wood threads and let it set for a night. The wood will swell a little and give you back some threads. Done this a lot.

    Here's a Picture of an old Green pantograph I picked up locally cheap. I haven't started using it yet. Anyone used this machine for doing inlays? I need to setup a colet indexer or something similar for a jig. I think it's a 1/16 inch stylus.

    I use a polish cleaner I get from Cue stock and a small old washcloth. USually helps to try to use a tip that is as close to the size that you need. The excess glue should be cleaned from the ferrule. I will clean the excess glue that squeezes out when I press the tip on before it starts to...

    WANTED: Used Porper Model B.

    yep, went through that myself recently with 2 model 'B's that had the older dial switches. I had to send the entire boards and wiring back to them to have a new board wired up. They're great now though. Will run solid for years. It's one of the reasons that I like the lathes. I have been...
