I Changed My Own Tip For The First Time - 06-18-2019, 11:01 AM

Busted my tip changing cherry....

Had a couple of moori's laying around with no one to install so I decided to do it myself. I'm happy with the results using only a razor blade, sand paper, last 4 ever tip tool and loctite crazy glue.

Just took my time.

I just might start playing again....or offer tipping services which will naturally go into custom cue building.


"People have to start realizing that if they are going to dick members around on AZ, it won't be forgotten about soon." from the blue hog rider

GLUE SAVES POOL

"When I shoot, my main concerns are if I made a good hit (including ball to rail) and the success of the shot (make or defense).
If you have played for a while, it is rare that you don't notice when it does not happen." from poolpro2

Are you Ray Martin?

Iíve done my own tips twice. Once worked out pretty well...the other time they sent me a 13mm tip and it didnít go on right perfect so I had a little cockeyed going on for a while. It was a backup shaft so it wasnít too bad lol...it seems so easy with the right equipment and it only cost me 20 so now I just wait for the cue guy to be at the pool hall. Most other things in life I try to do myself

I see. I read Something on here once that led me to believe he may be the cool cat.

I would’ve been surprised if Ray Martin had never put his own tip on, though it’s possible of course that he’s never touched one except to chalk it

DIY is fun. Saves time and money. May I suggest the Porper Mushroom Grazer tool. You’ll love it.
