    Viking eXact shot

    I got a buddy that just bought a eXact shot shaft. The carbon fiber structure that runs through the cue is probably a hundred thousandth of an inch higher than the wood on the shaft. He’s bringing the shaft to me tomorrow for a tip clean up and shaft conditioning. When doing a cleaning should I...

    One piece phenolic tip break shaft repair

    Hey folks, I was asked to fix this tip, seems easy enough but the owner obviously miss cues a lot (self proclaimed). They are okay with whatever I suggest, so what I was thinking to do was taking it down to just a phenolic ferrule and putting one of pooldawg8’s milk duds on there. Maybe use a...

    Extension Bumper

    Does this look like a familiar bumper brand to anyone? It’s in my collection of random bumpers so I’m not sure where it came from. I’m looking to install it but can’t find the thread count. Would I need to live thread the bumper onto the butt or do they make a tap this size? Minor diameter is...

    Suggestions on how to fix and prevent

    Hi everyone, Working on a CF extension for a customer and we wanted it to match up to exactly the same size as the butt cap. So I had to add some finish to the CF. Doing so created some runoff on the back and the joint face. I’d like to remove the lip but I’m worried that I’ll crack the finish...

    Trash in my super glue finish

    Hi everyone, I just finished my second cue build and I ended up trying to finish the cue 3 times. Epoxy base- sanded round then 10-15 coats of superglue, sanding (320 grit) round about every four coats. Every time I am getting little fragments of paper towel in the glue. Maybe my Costco paper...

    I can’t bring myself to buy a 4th Kamui Glove

    It really is the best glove that I have ever used. I do wish they would make a full finger or a longer finger version and eliminate the Velcro strap. However I can never get them to last more than a year. By my own mistake the first one I ordered a size smaller than what I should have but it...
