    4 ball - anyone playing?

    Great way to learn 3c is Korean 4 ball. Add a second red, hit both balls any way you want. Only foul is hitting opponents cue ball with yours. Teaches great control and helps learn the harder game of three cushion.

    Half n half tip

    Has anyone messed with installing a tip of one hardness, then trimming down and installing another half of a tip with differing hardness? Not sure what made me think of it, but curious to know if it's been done. I have no clue if there is any benefit. Would try it myself, but I've moved and no...

    Scallop secrets

    Has anyone here cut scallops in a cue? I'd love to see any pictures of setup. Did you build a jig and bandsaw the cuts, or did you use a router attachment and indexing headstock? If you are doing overlapping scallops, I'm assuming you need to cut, assemble, glue, turn, then cut, glue turn...

    Sleeve steel joint with another material

    Has anyone sleeved an existing steel joint cue with another material? Or would you instead just replace the joint altogether. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    Rebuilding a vintage cue

    So I saw a viking on an auction site recently and I'm 90% sure the forearm was an old Titleist blank. Due to the age the rings and plastic were distorted and shrinking or loose possibly. How do you guys feel about rebuilding something like that? Would you attempt to keep it true to the original...

    Mali and OB shaft

    Nice old Mali in great condition. With original shaft it hits firm like a sugartree. I got it years ago with a hand tooled leather case and was going to flip it at the time, but it plays so nicely that I kept it. Have to make room now. OB shaft is optional, can sell separately. Fairly sure...

    Classy Pete

    Not so sneaky, but I like the natural color palette. Cueball joint protector and bumper (not shown). This thing hits really solid, nice firm ping in the feedback. Brass 3/8x10 pin.

    White Delrin bumper for box cue

    Fun little project to personalize my Adam JR12 and change the feedback a little. Snug fit, with slots cut in the back to compress. Love the color as it's so unique. With all the white in this cue, I think it really works! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Cue Swap

    Wow, been a while since I've logged in. Thought I'd like to put this out there: After all my years of playing, I've never had the chance to really really play with some of my favorite cuemakers creations. I've hit a few balls around with some notable cues, but haven't had the chance to really...

    Stabilizing Ivory cueball

    Has anyone done this? Have a CB with some severe cracking and checking. I don't really care what it's worth, wanted to know if stabilizing with resin or epoxy was possible. Would be cool to have it filled with a bright color too! Could be used as a buttcap, joint, or shift knob. Shipping would...
