Tip replacement by mail - 09-05-2013, 05:31 PM

In my part of DC there's no one who does even simple cue work. My effort to do them myself worked out ok but not perfect.

Who is a good person to mail my shafts to for some new tips? I sent a pm to ratcues but he didn't answer.

Thanks

If you can't find anyone in DC, though I'm sure there has to be someone, I'd take it up to Bal'mer, or Catonsville. Seems to me there several well known cue makers and pool halls there, they'd have to have a resource or two

Charlie Fleming is awesome, but I'd rather ship them than drive to Dundalk on the north side of Bmore.

I understand!!!

Try Capone or Bob Fry!!!

Capone has another job and you would need to call and work something out!!!

Bob Fry is in Bmore a long way from you! I would do a group shipment/ pick up and make it worth Capone's effort to due SEVERAL tip replacements all together! If you play league then make an announcement and schedule a trip or pick up ONCE A MONTH!!! Rotate drivers as shipping and lost PLAYING shafts is really SCARY!!!

cost - 09-06-2013, 06:51 AM

shipping one shaft within the usa with insurance will cost about $15 each way, plus a trip to the post office. 5 - 6 shafts would be close to the same.
i can do the work as can many different builders. i think one shaft would not be cost effective, doing 5 - 6 at a time might justify the cost in shipping.

Are these shafts for an expensive cue or just a J&J or Kaiser cue?


What kind of cue or cues are these shafts for? What kind of tip do you want?


I send out shafts all the time using Priority Mail and it only cost around $5-$6 as long as it is on the East Coast and under one pound. Years ago I used to send everything to Meullers. Now, I have a lathe at home and do everything here.


Meullers was always good and easy. I'm sure there is someone close to you with a lathe in their basement. Talk to someone in a pool league. They may steer you in the right direction.

I have never put insurance on a shaft and rarely put insurance on pool cues I send out.

You gotta time these thing for when there is a tournament around with a cue guy or when you are going to one. Joe Blackburn should be at the open as usual.

Learn to do it yourself. It's not that hard.

Thanks, everyone. My shafts are currently in the hands of a guy in Fairfax (childish giggle). If it works out well, I'll post the guy's info for everyone's benefit.

I guess I won't call out anyone by name, but the main guy who shows up at tournaments around here isn't someone whose work I really trust. And he's not Flemming, Fry, Sly, or Capone.

I just checked through my PMs and I don't see one from you. I'm not sure what happened but I will be more than happy to assist you in the future.
