    Thought I sent a greenie

    But after sending my comment, I found out it was a Red Rep. Is there a way to change my attempt to show appreciation. I can't find any hints from the User CP. Any help from the Administrtors or someone who knows would be appreciated. I already contacted the person and apologized. I really...

    It's George SS joints

    I have a Bill Schick cue that has two of my favorite playing shafts that I would like to use more often. The butt of the cue is a too fancy for league play. The cue has a SS joint with a pin that is nominally 5/16x14. I own four cues with 5/16x14 SS joints and my Schick shafts do not fit any...

    When to tip?

    If you are selling a pool cue and meet with a prospective buyer in a pool hall, are you expected to tip the room owner above and beyond paying for the table time? If so, how much? Does the value of the transaction matter?

    Congratulations and a question

    Congratulations to the USA curling team. Last night was the first curling match my wife and I have watched. We were surprised how much was liked the game. Trying to draw a parallel for folks who have not seen a curling match, it would be like Scotch doubles 1-pocket. Great first game to pick...

    Fishing for information

    I was recently sold a 50 yd length of old fishing line that was claimed to by white/green speck Cortland linen. The line was reportedly obtained from a spool with Cortland labels. I like the look and feel of the line. But I got a bit curious about it. The line is 0.031” in diameter measured...

    BRW squares

    I own two cues with rosewood points that appear to have mineral deposits that are relatively common in BRW. Occasionally, I see pieces of BRW available that seem attractive and that I would consider buying for a future build. If the rosewood in a finished cue is going to show mineral deposits...

    Question for owners of Lee Peppers cues

    I have a Lee Peppers cue from 2012 where the finish appears to coat the entire shaft. Lee claimed that it only has a sealer, but the feel is very different than any other shaft I own. It is particularly bothersome in the summer when hands can be a bit sweaty. I do not wear a glove and do not...

    Simple patterns

    I am trying to teach a member of our 8-ball league team how to advance his skills. He can pocket balls fairly well. From my perspective, his biggest problem is that he does not recognize patterns that more experienced players understand naturally. Each table layout is a new problem that he...

    Thanks to ATC

    Ask The Cuemaker is one of my favorite forums to read. This is not pool related problem. But yesterday I was having difficulties removing a mortice lock assembly from my solid wood front door. The screws that held it in would not budge. Even with the proper size Philips screwdriver, I had...

    Ding, ding, ding

    I have a dent/gash on a shaft that my local repairman was not so confident could be repaired. He thought the edge looked too sharp and that the wood fibers might be torn. Fortunately, the blemish is close enough to the joint end of the shaft that I cannot feel it while playing. It is not...

    FS: Bill Schick shaft 2011

    For Sale: 2011 Bill Schick shaft. 29”, 4.4 oz, 13.0 mm at the tip, 13.2 mm at the ferrule/shaft interface, and 13.8 mm at 6”. The shaft is straight (a video of it rolling on my pool table can be provided). By anybody’s standards, this is a stiff shaft. The ferrule is ivory (1.1”) and tip is...

    Bill Schick cue refinished

    Earlier this week, I received my 1993 Bill Schick cue back from Mike Webb who did an excellent job refinishing it. Nothing was wrong with the cue except that I had worn off the finish in some places leading some of the rings to tarnish. Mike does great ring work and this cue is a testament to...

    Help finding linen

    I am in the process of having a great, older cue refinished. The difficulty has been finding new linen that matches the original. I am aware that Atlas and Schemlke sell linen for cue wraps, but I haven’t seen exactly what I am looking for. Perhaps the colors I want are no longer produced...
