It's given me good enough results as an CA finish (other than the hazards) using different oils and epoxy base that I've refinned 3 imports with it,and handed the customer back a finish that was comparable to whatever was on it new. I have no reason to think it wouldn't work for tips,but the medium Stickfast I got at Woodcraft is def slower than Loctite Pro. I honestly never tried it as a tip glue since I have optimized success with Loctite.
I don't know what any of the 3 look like now,I did these 2 years ago within the same month. They were as nice as anything I've ever tried or put out as far as wet look appeal,and couldn't hurt it with a thumbnail hard. The depth approached high end guitar level,even over mediocre grained woods. I did an old Meucci Original that was in cherry shape for a player that I had seen getting used regularly all the way back to when I was in high school and in awe of it's original owner. According to the new owner,he had a flat on the way home,and stopped to change the tire,and to move the seat set his case on the roof of the small truck to get to his jack.
He got the tire changed,but forgot the case until it came off the roof at about 35 and he heard it hit pavement. The shafts were just dinged up a little,the butt took minimal damage for the circumstances,but still one of those "man it sucks" moments.
The others were my old Bill Hoyt plain birdseye PJ,and what I think was a bubinga front Dufferin. The owner of the Duff is unfortunately no longer with us,and although I've talked to the other 2 owners,I haven't seen the other 2 cues to see what they look like now. Tommy D.
