    I haven't been on for a long time, but Jim did come in this sight often when I was frequenting it. So answer is I have no answer, if you get in touch tell him Bill said hi and asked about him.

    looking for live center

    I think it's unusual for that to fail. The cuemakers sell one I've had for years. BUT, MSC sells quality stuff as well as a few others. Shars sold me a quality item too. A little gamble on EBAY, but Chinese can be good if you compare. Compare is good,

    Which Collet Chuck and Collets should I use for 1.25 to hold butt end and maybe shafts too.

    No, that's not the lathe I have. It's a Techtongda 8x30.5 with 1 1/2 inch spindle bore ...It was impulsive to say the least..sold on ebay and now much cheaper than the almost 2k i spent a year ago. i recently offered 1150 for another one and was countered with 1350 so I through six or seven...

    Which Collet Chuck and Collets should I use for 1.25 to hold butt end and maybe shafts too.

    a good friend and long time cuemaker told me a six jaw is only way to go. But With my lathes it won't work. So either buy a big lathe which I can't afford. Or go with the Cueman deluxe, which I have experience with and to tell you the truth I'm not expecting to make 500 cues as old as I am.

    Which Collet Chuck and Collets should I use for 1.25 to hold butt end and maybe shafts too.

    no threads, it is much like the way a mini lathe works, but a larger version..made my Techtongda and has about 31 " between centers with a 1.5" bore in the headstock. A 5 MT center goes in ?? if tht helps... Big mistake but I did it so I either live with it or find someone to make the same...

    POINTS /NO POINTS/FULL SPLICE

    I'm not much of a cuemaker , but I do play at a good level and in my experience I've always thought that points took away from the hit. They have other pluses for sure but playability strictly I like no points no joint, just a stick. Even the ferrule could be done away with if the stick...

    I guess ultimately we're all on our own, but not until it comes to that. Don't be so pessimistic, need help just ask, peck away don't ask for a ton at one time.

    Rookie as hell tool questions about Hightower delux

    Jeez, I don't think I ever asked a question and didn't get a response, or maybe several. Of course in the old days the pool players didn't like to give any tips cause they might play the guy later on and get beaten because of what they taught their opponent. Doesn't apply here because it takes a...
