Cue Caps - Before the Renaissance - 12-09-2018, 09:38 AM

Hello Members..
Before I bought a CNC Machine, I was using only 3 basic Machines.
a mini Lathe, Mini Mill, and, a 99 dollar Band Saw.

Those were the "Dark Ages" of Cue Caps..
Before the (CNC) Reniassance...

Here are some of my earlier Cue Caps I made.

And more....

Thanks for viewing..
These are just some I made before.
I am retired.
I do not make them anymore.
But, there was a lot of designs made.
There's much more old Cue Caps that I made.
Many of you did not see them..

Gina Cue Cap - 12-09-2018, 09:56 AM

Here is one of my favorite Cue Cap that I made...
I used only a Mini Lathe ( 9 x 20 ) , mini Milling machine, and, Band saw.
Everybody..
Can you "Reverse Engeneer" this Cap?
Just to test your knowledge and skills.
See if you know which processes had to be done, and,
what order it had to be done in..
Note: I think the Late, Great Collector Steve Piesner had this cue.
The Gina Cue (That this cap went to) was made for a Califirnia Movie Exc.
mmm. I know who, I just forgot his name.. No disrespect to him..
I will add it when I find out.

Very cool, thanks for showing these!

I was recently going through your web site. I started out on Tikkler's Photobucket page and ended up on yours.

Beautiful work. Really shows how much can be done with relatively simple tools in talented hands.
