linen wrap question ...? - 03-14-2019, 06:28 AM

A customer brings you a cue that has a leather wrap and he wants it replaced with a linen wrap.
The wrap groove is .040" ... (to deep for the linen wrap to lay flush with the cue surface).

Can you share your best method of building the wrap groove back up to to proper depth?

Willie,
There was a post called "wrap groove to low" last month. I'm not sure how to post a link to it but you can do a search to find it.

What the last poster said.

There are a number of ways including epoxy, veneer, glued string, etc.

Read the thread and pick your poison.

I personally like the veneer method, myself but epoxy is very popular.

I donít know much about cue-making but the thought of building up the wood surface higher so the the
linen wrap could lay flush with the butt made me wonder if you could use teflon tape like is used in PVC
threaded pipe connections. It is extremely thin and can be stretched tight and layer rolled to the desired
height and it could be installed pretty evenly too. But then I start to wonder about durability over
the years and the probability of the tape becoming dry and brittle. Perhaps if there was some way to
preserve and protect the tape using glue might help but like I wrote, I understand pool cue anatomy
but possess minimal knowledge of cue-making and repair so my idea is probably going to be in left field.

If you have UV capability, fill the groove in with the UV finish, cure it, then cut a new wrap groove to the desired depth.

Regular masking tape carefully wound on to get it up to right thickness is probably the fastest solution.

Bava,
The linen still has to be glued down - what glue sticks to teflon?

Masking tape flexes greatly, the wrap will actually squish in and out

I've seen people use electrical tape. They gum out eventually and get outside of the linen.

The decision as to what to use to gain the tolerance needed for a new wrap depends solely on how many thousands you need to build up. Although, as mentioned by Chris, if your ends are unevenly deep you probably go with epoxy. The sport wraps replacements are the most challenging. It pays to have a few extra thick leather blanks around. Few years ago I bought two hides Brown/Black that varied from .020 to .065 thickness thought I had wasted my money until they help me solved the odd jobs easily.

I have seen this done with zero noticeable movement of the wrap.
