Just a quick question; I have a guy who wants new tips on some shafts with ivory ferrules and he is, understandably, very picky about the appearance and condition of his ferrules. I've done plenty of tip changes but so far I don't believe that I have ever worked with an ivory ferrule. Is there anything I need to do differently or watch out for with ivory as opposed to say a linen phenolic or plastic ferrule? Does the standard super glue gel work with ivory. Thanks, I just want to be sure that I don't create any problems with this guys cue so if anybody has any advice about dealing with ivory ferrules I would be very happy to hear it.

Thanks for the info guys. After I posted this I remembered that I did do a couple tips on a schon cue and I believe that it had ivory ferrules. I'll be careful with the final trimming.
