Coring query - 10-11-2019, 08:04 AM

For those of you who core - couple of questions:

What is your material of choice for the core itself?

What type of adhesive do you prefer?

Still learning what question to ask!

Thanks!

Ken

It depends on what you want to achieve. Heavy woods, usually a lighter core, light woods, usually a heavier core. Core diameter is also important.
Maple, purpleheart, jatoba and other straight grained woods works fine.
I have .758" and .650" gun drills, but you can go even bigger if you like.
I use west system epoxy. Tried several PU expandable glues, but just didn`t like working with it and the bond is not (in my opinion) as strong as marine grade epoxy.

A lot depends on the wood that is going to be cored. Lighter woods, burls, etc. need a heavier core, Purple Heart, Ipe, rosewoods are samples. I prefer a slow curing epoxy.

Great information already! Thanks!

I overlooked an obvious permutation to my question. I've been focused on heavier woods, naturally needing a lighter core. Never occurred to me that the opposite existed as well.

So much to learn, so little time!

Thanks again!

Ken

I've not personally cored anything yet. But a few years ago i laid in some straight grain black locust, just in case. It's intermediate between hard maple and PH on most values. More stable than maple, less shrinkage, a little harder, stiffer, heavier. A little less than PH on all same counts.

And you can also split the core wood for balance.
I've threaded on rosewood to maple for G-10 screw.
Loved the hit and balance.

I like a little over 7/8 for handles. That way I can have 7/8 tenon at the bottom. And really take out a lot of mass from the center of the handle .
But, I've done .700 for bocote and purpleheart handles too.
Takes out just enough weight from those stable woods.

As far as glue, I've experimented with a few .
I think, it's mostly how than what.

If two cues are built with straight grain maple exactly the same.
But one is cored and one isnt will the hit be much different?


Playing cue- The Mighty Lucasi Cocobolo
Back up cue - Troy Downey

Triangles tips and Masters chalk are good enough.
