Shorter answer. Yes Sir
I have owned and played with every vintage of Ernie Martinez cue including several
cues from the 3/8-16 era at Showcase, every Josswest vintage with 3 different Acme
pins, and 2 different radials including the prototype radials from the early 90's, all
years of Schon, big & small pin Tad's, and South West.
Some stuff is interchangeable, some isn't, a few are close so there is some
interchangeability, and typically I remember from cue to cue.
I still own several but owning and collecting (accumulating) this stuff is not working
on them with the dimensions on the tip of your tongue.
I know about most of the variances from year to year but I don't work on them.
(We are almost done with our first sneaky)
You however know all the dimensions, have the tooling to work on them, plus you remember everything.
I doubt there is another cuemaker on the planet who can do what you do, it's truly amazing.
Like a cuemakers cuemaker.
It's not easy, you have to be exposed to it plus have the interest and intelligence to figure out what's happening.
I find it amazing that you actually have all the tooling, and have worked with every one of them.
