R Cue Doctor Shaft cleaner - 10-13-2019, 11:09 AM

Will this product ever be available again? IMO this was the best shaft cleaner/conditioner. If you know of a better product I would like to hear about it.

If anyone has any info on the original producer , please forward that info.

Soft Scrub (for your sink) on a paper towel works just as well at a fraction of the cost. I've been using it for several years now. I use the Soft Scrub with bleach and people have always complimented me on my "new" shafts.

Apparently this place has it available for an astounding price of $21.50 for a 3 oz bottle

https://www.wayfair.com/home/pdp/sha...r-ffu1019.html

I guess they think it's the best also because I know of no other cleaner priced as half as much..

Yes but it is fine. I believe it's what's inside a bottle of Atlas Clean for cleaning shafts.

Fast Orange, the hand cleaner, with pumice also works really well.

I wet a dry eraser with Methyl-Hydrate instead of water. Works well, but the Cue Doctor concoction still pulls grime out after. It's a shame it can't be sourced anymore.

Fast Orange seems a little harsh to me, but I have a spare shaft I can experiment with.

i use them separately but i might just try that.

for a really dirty shaft i sometimes use SIL KLEEN dry, which i assume is what you talk about.

R Cue Doctor Shaft cleaner - 10-19-2019, 02:43 AM

I haven't used that product,but there is another powdered bleach/cleaner out there that will work if used correctly.

https://cheapcues.com/q-clean-shaft-cleaner/

It's been a LONGGGG time since I used it because I found a better method before the Magic Eraser came along,then switched to it because it's faster than the old method,and perhaps even a tad more effective if used to it's full capability.

However,using ANY of those methods will 100% change the way the shaft feels when you are done,so be prepared to deal with restoring it to your own liking if you are doing it yourself,and understand that if you are having it cleaned by someone else,that there will be some sanding and re-sealing involved.

Now,because this method was shared with me before the Eraser came along,by a cuemaker that was a member here but is no longer with us,I will share it because it works,and hopefully helps you.

There is a very common yellow kitchen sponge that comes with a green Scotch Brite pad on one side available anyplace that sells dishwashing products. Ignore the green side,you'll only be using the yellow.

Take one of those and wet it,then wring it out as best you can.

Microwave it until it's steaming,then go to work.

I never tried it by hand,but using it on a lathe works best if you take about a minute to go from one end of the shaft to wherever the clearcoat ends if there is one,then turn the lathe off,rotate the sponge to a clean spot,then go end to end WITH the grain,and wipe dry then inspect.

Only a truly noticable dent should be left. Apply whatever sanding and sealing is needed. Tommy D.
