Have a soldering iron?
You might want to try some liquid wrench - looks rusted.
I had 'er, but I sold er!
...no, I don't:embarrassed2:
tate, I don't have any liquid wrench but was thinking of trying wd40
might help? would it hurt the wood or anything to try?
Dont put lubricant in there.
You need to heat up the bolt to break the glue bond.
If you dont mind ruining your allen wrench, you can put it in a vise vertically, heat it with a torch, then set the cue down on it. The residual heat will do the job.
Now, be careful if you do it. Keep your hand on the butt sleeve, and if its getting just warm, that should be close. Dont let it feel hot to the touch, then you are damaging the cue and have gone too far.
Once the butt starts feeling warm, twist the cue on the allen wrench. It will start turning once its warm enough.
That might be an assembly bolt, not a weight bolt. What kind of cue is it?
thanks chuck..man I got tools for fools..my foot=vise, lighter=torch
if I don't set myself on fire, I'll let you know how it goes:thumbup:
56" billiards cue
I meant the brand, but alright - don't assume that is a weight bolt until you do your homework. If the buttsleeve breaks off, congratulations
fuel is the brand..and I ain't tryna break nothin ('cept a good rack)
if you have advice to share, spill it
ps if it helps, another good azb fellow suggested that because the balance point is 16" from the butt end
a weight bolt it be
I spilled my good advice, do your homework. I don't know how a Fuel cue is constructed, maybe that information is on the internet somewhere. If that is a threaded assembly rod, you might bring the buttsleeve off with it.
I'm trying to figure out where the guy who don't own a soldering iron keeps his workbench, vice and torch?
I'll answer that for you- he doesn't
looking to do something about the first part tho
so did some more reading on the subject via search..had no idea this was such a common thing..found more good info. and am now shopping for a soldering iron
only question I have before pulling the trigger on this thing is the width of the iron
nobody has seemed to indicate it wouldn't, but obviously I want the iron to fit in the hole
the bolt is 8mm
this is the piece I'm looking at (cheap)
yall think I'm ok clearance-wise?
