I provide cue repair services in my well-equiped cue shop.
"I have been repairing cues for about 15 years and building cues for about 10 years. Many billiard establishments bring their own house cues as well as their customers' cues to me for tips, ferrules or repairs. I still consider this as a labour of love and probably will quit when it is no longer any fun.
I still play pool 3 or 4 times a week and am a strong B or weak A player."
"This is the first lathe I bought when I got into cue repairs. It is a Kerry lathe and is 24" between centres. The first thing I had to do was have an extension made for it. I use it for the vast majority of my cue repairs. It is also used for putting the inserts in shafts and the pins in butts. I have an adjustment at the back end of the lathe which allows me to centre both ends of the pieces."
"This is a Standard Modern lathe with 30" between centres. I use it primarily when making custom cues or shafts. It has a taper bar that has been adapted for my needs. It also has a gear motor which can move the cross slide forward and backward without the head of the lathe turning. This allows me to cut points in cues with great accuracy."
"This is the newest addition to my shop. It is a Taig desk top 4-axis CNC Mill. It is used strictly for inlay work on the cues. The work is designed on the computer using a CAD program and the drawing is then translated into the wood."
"This wood lathe is utilized for sanding and/or cleaning shafts. I also use it for my triangular shafts as the final work on them is all by hand."
"This is some of the woods that are used in my custom cues. In the piles shown are Ash, Bubinga, Bloodwood, Lacewood, straight grained Maple, curly, burl and birdseye Maple, Cocobolo, Purpleheart, Tulip wood, Macasar Ebony, Gabon Ebony, Walnut and African Mahogany."
"These are some of the woods that are close to the final stages. There are forearms, handles and shafts in this picture. From here the pieces are given points or inlays and then joined to form the butt or shaft of the cue."
