how to remove this weight bolt? - 04-27-2020, 04:00 PM

got a good wrench but sucker is in there tight..
I understand the bolt might be glued in, but I don't know if it is or not
obviously don't want to break the cue
appreciate any help!

You might want to try some liquid wrench - looks rusted.

Dont put lubricant in there.

You need to heat up the bolt to break the glue bond.

If you dont mind ruining your allen wrench, you can put it in a vise vertically, heat it with a torch, then set the cue down on it. The residual heat will do the job.

Now, be careful if you do it. Keep your hand on the butt sleeve, and if its getting just warm, that should be close. Dont let it feel hot to the touch, then you are damaging the cue and have gone too far.

Once the butt starts feeling warm, twist the cue on the allen wrench. It will start turning once its warm enough.

Chuck's probably right. I'm not sure solvent would loosen it anyway.

It takes some pressure to loosen a weight bolt, but if it is glued, the only way to do it is to heat it up like Chuck suggests. I've seen people break the butt sleeve or bolt head off trying to crank a glued bolt. Many weight bolts are not glued but if it won't budge, it probably is.

That might be an assembly bolt, not a weight bolt. What kind of cue is it?

I meant the brand, but alright - don't assume that is a weight bolt until you do your homework. If the buttsleeve breaks off, congratulations

I spilled my good advice, do your homework. I don't know how a Fuel cue is constructed, maybe that information is on the internet somewhere. If that is a threaded assembly rod, you might bring the buttsleeve off with it.

I do appreciate it
I've got some feelers out to the folks I bought it from
it's just a cheap billiards cue but I'm happy not to break it
much obliged
