I must admit I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I received my tool. Either business is brisk and he got his 10 orders OR he had enough stock in hand. Personally I placed the order as soon as I could. The other thing he frequently kept me informed on the status (ie received payment, tool being built, tool built, tool shipped, etc). I almost felt like I was being SPAMMED but at least in a good way......

That's GREAT to know the seller kept good communication during the process. At the time of his announcement, I had cash in hand ready to buy but dind't feel comfortable "funding" the build, too much can go wrong in that case, BUT if he had some in stock, I wish he would've said so. Maybe he just built them quick, either way, thanks for the feedback on the tool, it's good to hear positive feedback on the tool AND the seller.

NOW if he would just get some in stock, I would buy one immediately.

I actually bought the 18mm.

NOTE: I actually only needed the 15mm since all the tips I have in stock are 14mm. Call it overkill, call it foolishness, call it a waste of money.....

I figured if the tool is expensive anyway another $10 doesn't really make that much of a difference in the big picture. Why limit yourself.....???

At the end of the day he probably has more 18mm in stock since most folks are going to purchase the 15mm. Of course the opposite is true, it may take longer to get 10 orders for the 18mm since who would order the 18 if the 15 will do all your jobs..... Things that make you go HMMMMM.....

I paid upwards to a grand for my Cue Companion II, and for that kind of dough I expect it to be dead nutz.
Who ever heard of paying a thousand dollars for a lathe.
I have a friend who owns a machine shop that makes titanium parts for NASA, and I'll bet they don't even have a grand invested in one single lathe.

The Universal Tip Centralizer looks like a very well-built tool and I'm sure it performs wonderfully. However...

*** WARNING: SARCASTIC COMEDY CONTENT BELOW! ***
*** IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR, STOP READING NOW! ***

Try my tip centering tool, which I like to call H.A.N.D. (please see attached picture). As you can see, it is a multi-functional tool, with 5 mini-tools securely attached. Once properly calibrated, the two mini-tools on the right can be infinitesimally adjusted from 0.0-152.4mm (range varies on your exact model), which every cue repair professional will agree accommodates EVERY tip on the market, even the ones not invented yet!

***BUT WAIT!**** H.A.N.D. doesn't stop there. H.A.N.D. is also a "smart tool" and can learn to perform other tasks as well! (*Proper connection to B.R.A.I.N. via A.R.M. is required for H.A.N.D. to "learn".) Fully water-proof and air-tight, H.A.N.D. is truly an amazing tool. There is *literally* no job H.A.N.D. can't do!

Don't believe me, see what some of my customers have said:
* To the moon, Alice! - Ralph Kramden (no mini-tools extended)
* Aaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy! - Arthur Fonzarelli (one mini-tool extended)
* I want you! - Uncle Sam (different mini-tool extended)
* Give peace a chance. - John Lennon (two mini-tools extended)

H.A.N.D. works perfectfully with other tools, both of a power and non-power nature. H.A.N.D. is also the official tool of every game of Rock, Paper, Scissors ever played in the entire history of the world!

So, the next time you're thinking of buying a single-purpose tool that may or may not be completely necessary, think of H.A.N.D. I bet it can get the job done for far less expense!

That kind of "tip centralizer" is for a different type of tooling.
I'm new to this cue repair stuff, but I don't think it is cue machinery related...
I'm sure every cuemaker and cue repair guy has done it.
What people do in the privacy of their own shop is up to them, but we don't need a visual on somebody's version of a human tip tool...

great looking tool! - 07-29-2012, 07:29 AM

received the 18 model this week..communication with Olaf was great..very fast shipping..set up the tool last night..dailed it in..the tool installs the tip dead nuts!..all the tips i install are oversized and trimmed to size..so more important to me is how the tool clamps the tip into the tool.. i like to prime my tips (brush glue on) before installing..so it allows me to put the tip in it and after brushing glue on, pick up the tool and not have to touch the tip or the tip fall out..i will look forward to trying to install a tip with the same diameter as the ferrule..for me, this tool is a winner!..and Olaf must be a very qualified machinist, this tool is of very high quality..

The second one must give you quick change tooling capabilities, as well as tip centralization.
Apparently I've been looking at the wrong websites for lathe tools.
