An eighth inch? Lol. I'll take any shaft anyone want to give away because it's no good because it's got a eighth inch taper roll

I don't know if I ever played with a straight shaft, or a perfectly level pool table


I almost made that shot.

Ignore it.

It will fade with memory.

If it really can't be ignored then it is too warped to play with and should be replaced.

But don't throw it away. Send it to me so I can ignore it.

Warped shafts are not all alike...I bought a Predator 314 that had been abused and developed a warp as a result. I used the Jacoby method (with a screwdriver) and it became usable (but not 100%, just a tiny taper roll). I had a different shaft that was really thick and had never been used (new old stock) that had become badly warped for no apparent reason. I tried everything, steam, Jacoby method, etc..But it immidiately returned to its warped state. I gave it away to a repair guy. I don't know what he wanted it for, but I do know that there was no way to get that back to being straight.

I've got a one for ya Doc. Really old Scruggs. Pm me an address & you can ignore it for awhile. I've put in 20 years ignoring it in a case in the closet.

I've seen your Fellini key collection, you're the perfect man for the job.

I would like to know if there is a way of straightening it because those shafts are north of $200 in decent used condition from what I have seen. Would rather try to fix it instead of throw it away if possible,
I would say, "Cut your losses, and get new shafts." It might be good to talk to Predator and tell them your situation and concerns, maybe they would be able to give you a discount or something.

I wish you the best of rolls,

Ken

After you use that tool it will leave a mark or groove like on your shaft take a high grit sand paper sand it off it be just fine. After that lay it on a flat table and put a few heavy books
on the shaft with the bow up, leave it for a couple days and it will be good to go.

I did this and it worked for me but after 3 weeks just a little bit of roll out came back and
it wasn't as bad as it started out to be.
So I repeated the process and now my shaft has been straight for a year an half. Also I'm
not a sales person for Jacoby ether.
I watched a guy at the pool hall use that tool the other night and it worked fine. The owner of the shaft was definitely happy.

After 5 or 6 racks I bend it straight on the table or when I miss, whatever comes first. 7 years or 100,000 miles.
Straight pool after about 75 she needs a slight adjustment, bunting them isn't as hard on the old gal
