    Cue DisplayCase

    As a long time woodworker, I have to say, that is a great case, with some really nice wood. Even though I could easily build that for myself, if that were something I was interested in, I would buy it at that price, rather than make it. Really nice.

    My first new custom cue

    I have an old school style pool case from the early 80's to put the cue in that would really go great with that car. Also used to have a red1960 Chevy convertible 348 when I was in high school. Those were the days.

    My first new custom cue

    Yes I actually have watched many of his videos and because of those, had no worries as to ordering a cue from him. Also it was really nice working with him to get a shaft close to the dimensions I wanted right away, instead of having to accept 2 shafts that weren't really what I wanted just to...

    My first new custom cue

    No, it was a cue that he had, and I sort of liked it for the simplicity of it. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    My first new custom cue

    Been looking for awhile, and actually at a few other makers, but saw this one and decided to give it a try. It's a not a maker I was originally looking at, but it's by DZ cues and he is putting a 30" shaft on it for me as that is the length that I prefer to play with. Bob seemed real nice to...

    LED light panels

    Sorry but after reading everyone's comments, I need to correct what I wrote as it totally misrepresents what I ment. When I said diffuser, what I actually ment was a grid panel to cut down on any possible glare in your eyes. The 2x2 led panels do not need an additional diffuser as they are a...

    LED light panels

    The box makes adding a diffuser really easy and professional looking. It's not that difficult to make a simple box, even if you don't have a shop. You could use simple butt construction, or go buy a krieg jig to join the pieces. If you buy wood at home depot I think they will cut it for you...

    LED light panels

    I used 3-2x2 led panels also in a home made box frame, with a grid under the light. Fantastic light with no glare for about $225 cost.Turned out great. This was for an oversized 8' table, but would still be great for 9'. At the cost of this I would not go with a 1x4 panel, but keep in mind that...

    13mm shaft feel vs. Carbon

    Although at this time I prefer my jacoby ultra wood shafts more than the carbon one I got from them, there are some things that the carbon does better, such as I seem to get a little more action and draw on the carbon, and who knows, the carbon may actually be a better shaft for me if I were to...

    Rubber wrap for break cue

    In my case, no I didn't need the rubber grip with the house cue. Even though the break cue that I had and the house cue were no wrap cues, the finish on the break cue was incredibly slick the way it came. I may put it on my lathe and sand it off and just finish it with something else to see how...

    13mm shaft feel vs. Carbon

    I have two Schon's now, and 2 Jacoby Ultra wood shafts, and one Jacoby 12.7 carbon for them. First bought a Jacoby Ultra when I had my 1st Schon and really liked it. When my wife stole that Schon from me and told me to buy another, I was going to order another Ultra right away, but had a chance...

    Rubber wrap for break cue

    I got one of those sleeves for an inexpensive break cue that I had, as the finish on it was very slippery. Very grippy grip after install, but as the butt was already slightly oversize, with the addition of the wrap, made it almost impossible to get into my JB case, so for now am just using one...

    Correct way to measure pocket angle?

    Thanks everyone for your help. I'll try measuring it by flopping the protractor, but will also have to take some pictures the way they asked. After taking a closer look at Trents photo, it appears to be the bottom side, and in affect I should get the same reading when measuring it the way they...

    Correct way to measure pocket angle?

    That picture matches how I measured mine, even though I had cloth on, although I can't see if the back edge of the protractor, a little backwards of your thumb is even with the top, or down apx a 1/4". Because of the inward slope, it does change the angle apx 1 deg if the protractor head is...

    Diamond arrived

    I didn't get a PRC finish, but got a Cherry finish, maple wood. Nicks and scratches, zero. Quality of finish, great, setup, a lot to be desired. Only negative on my maple wood cherry finish, it would have really been nice if they had sprayed an extra coat of clear for protection. While I'm sure...

    Correct way to measure pocket angle?

    Well I thought I did it right also, especially as how every time I have seen someone show how to measure the angle, this is how I have seen it done. Now how it was told to me to do it, is similar, but will give slightly different reading. After being told that the angles shouldn't be as I...

    Correct way to measure pocket angle?

    This is how I measured corner pocket angles, and have now been told it is wrong. Thought I had done it right as had always seen it measured similar to this. While the supposed correct way is similar, it does give a slightly different result. Just wondering how everyone else measures the angle.
