    Affordable Custom Cue. Great Player.

    Finished this up earlier this month. Walnut handle with Birdseye. Black phenolic joint and butt. Ivory ring. Very pleased with how this turned out. Cue is actually much darker in person. I'm not great at picture taking. The felt on my table is actually green but looks blu-ish in the pics... Not...

    3 Very Affordable Custom Cues

    I've got 3 cues for sale here. Full disclosure. I'm an amateur cue maker/hobbyist. Although I think you'll find these to be nice players I'm far from a seasoned cue maker. These cues are not in anyway comparable to high end cues or reputable cue makers so lets set a reasonable expectation up...

    1880's Brunswick Billiard table - Brilliant Novelty - Salvage or sell?

    So I picked up this billiards table (oversize 8) last weekend. Its rough. As you can see some areas look good while others suffer from heavy exposure. A few small pieces of trim are missing and the 4th piece of slate is in 3 pieces. Rubber is junk of course. There is no hardware. However its...

    Any ideas of what I got here?

    My initial thoughts looking at the joint and fat black rings were overseas junk but I'm just not sure. It does give off the vibe of a simple conversion. Any opinions? I didn't want to sell it without having at least a few better ideas of what it is.

    Jim Pierce Cocobolo Plain Jane

    Very nice Pierce cue. Just over 19oz and just over 13mm shaft. This is a dark Cocobolo with brown phenolic and a solid white phenolic joint. White with brown spec wrap. Cue is in good shape and only played with inside my own home. Cue rolls straight by my eye. Also a little red hue on the...

    Fixing the For Sale forum. Actual solutions with links to mods and plugins.

    Yes, its been beaten to death but one of the main issues is that very few have offered actual applicable solutions to fixing the issue. No shortage of complaints and suggestions, some good some bad. Here are some actual plugins and mods that I think will restore the For Sale forum close enough...

    Can anyone identify this?

    Not sure where to post this and I know it isn't exactly cue machinery or supplies but I couldn't think of a more knowledgeable group. I picked it up this morning for a couple of dollars and I hate to cut it up without knowing if its worth something whole. I believe its teak? Looks like some...

    Here are Pens 4 and 5. I couldn't fit them on the last thread. Thanks. Both Pens come from these two Butterfly cues. Its a shame there wasn't enough to make a shaft, you can see how dense it is. PayPal preferred and I'll cover the fees. 4. Shaft wood body with a Buckeye Burl cap on Chrome...

    Two Garage Sale Cues. Another "what is it" thread.

    So any help would be great. I prefer to at least know what they are before selling them. First cue is a nice plain jane. No markings. Brass pin. Probably a rosewood or cocobolo. Second Cue Looks like some kind of production cue. No markings, SS joint.

    No good deed goes unpunished...and I feel a little stupid.

    So before I get started, I realize this is predominately my fault. Sticking your neck out for a total stranger is bound to lead to having it cut off. Couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a newly registered user who saw that 6 months ago I had a Ricco Cervantes cue listed for sale here in the...

    Adam Cue? Imported Junk? Other?

    Can anyone tell from these two pictures if this is anything other than import junk. I can get the guy to send additional pictures if needed. Claims it to be an Adam cue. Honestly I'm not sure (no logo or sticker). Looked to be a step up from the normal import junk I come across. Thanks.

    5 Authentic NFL Jerseys for trade + Clemens Texas Jersey

    I figured I'd offer these for trade before ebaying them. All jerseys are authentic and have sewn names, numbers and logos. Each jersey would present nicely if framed and are in nice enough condition to wear out. These aren't the cheap iron on jerseys these are the authentic ones that retail...
