    What is the best way to get contact cement off a leather wrap?

    In NO WAY can a mist of wd40 on a paper towel rubbing lightly mess up ANY and I mean ANY of the auto clear finishes or water based finishes on a cue. Used it for many years, not one hick up, never made a scratch. False info.

    I'm looking for set of collets and misc other parts for my cue companion lathe

    You can easily make them out of delrin, but for shaft / butt chucking into the head stock, black electrical tape works great if not better. Make sure you wrap the area 3-4 times, making sure the end where it stops doesn't overlap the end where u started, just short is great, and keep that small...

    Best wood combination to make a (uncored) heavy cue with forward balance?

    My suggestion is a Non cored ebony,cocobolo or kingwood forearm, maple handle, and ebony,cocobolo or kingwood butt sleeve over the maple for your butt sleeve. This will allow 20-21 ounce, forward weighted cue with the balance point you desire is turned in a straight taper from joint to butt...

    Anyone uses Q Slick?

    I found the Q-Slick end results not to be to my liking. Much better results with the r-wax.

    Shaft maintenance process?

    Can be done by hand. Start with a magic eraser, rub up and down the shaft rotating shaft slowly in your hand on each up and down stroke. So if you go down in the stroke, spin cue slightly, go back up with a stroke, over and over. Until you are satisfied with the results. Start with 800 grit wet...

    Shaft collar

    I said can easily be done, and I meant it. Reworking a shaft collar IS easy for a qualified repair person who has dealt with many. Wasn't meant to start a debate , but if a shaft collar causes someone major problems, you may wanna rethink working on cues. And as I stated, it is best to send butt...

    question regarding tone wood, and hit

    I really do not understand from a play ability standpoint why more cue makers are not building cues like this. The hit is so crisp, consistent and solid of a cue made from phenolic. If more people had a chance to hit a cue built in this way, you would see a much higher demand and popularity of...
