You are correct Mike. In the very first segment I wanted to make it clear that I did not expect anyone to give up any secrets or make this a instructional video. The point of these threads is to help people understand the basics of how their cue is put together and some of the components used. So far I think it is going well.

I'll have my pictures and write up done tonight or in the morning.

Sorry Jim
Thru my discussions with Murray, I wasn't aware that we were doing instructional step by step threads. I know some guys who have a hard time selling cues but they sell DVD's,

I don't expect any trade secrets and I don't want step by step instructions, but I would appreciate getting a little knowledge about the make up of a cue. Looking at a picture of cue parts, with no explanation doesn't teach me much because I can only guess at what I'm looking at. A short explanatin would be greatly appreciated.

I totally appreciate what you guys are doing and I guarantee that I will never be your competition.

Didn't want you to give up any of your techniques Mike, but an explination would have helped to explain what they are looking at and what you do with them, not how *YOU* made them.

Eric(h),
I plan to get into the details of how the different methods of how veneers are installed in a later segment(s). My intent for this segment was just to show the basics of how short spices are done. I was in a hurry when I made my post and did not make that clear.


Oops. I overstepped my bounds again.

Every post is a little more interesting than the one before it. This is one of the best forum topic ideas I've ever seen or heard of.

It's almost embarrassing to have owned as many cues as I have...without really putting much thought into how the damned things were made. Now that I've "calmed down" a bit, I'm more interested in the "how to" aspects of cues.

Can't wait to see what the following weeks offer up. Thanks to all for the free education.

Mark <---likes to learn

Anyone that's pushed the building envelope has done the same thing.

A picture is worth a thousand words of explanation. Sometimes a picture shows too much....sometimes not enough. Most people that look at the pictures should be able to figure it out.....granted a few won't...but that's OK cause then they'll ask and get the explanation of what they're looking at.

Not my job to make sure eddie knows how to wipe. Even if he did know, he'd still walk a round with a lump of coal in his panties anyway.

Dave,

When the army resided at Inside Pool, Dave posted pics of a cue in construction that had overlapping fly's/rings. Very cool.

Scott <== going to try to find them

Well, I looked and didn't find any of the old army threads. Shame.

Somewhere.........honestly, my picture categorizing skills are lacking. I changed computers and operating software and since have been in the dark because Win7 does not support Photowise which I was using on XP. So besides still trying to learn this photo crap that it defaults too and needing to go find 2 or 3 pictures in the 1000's on my computer, I'm still in the semi-dark with it. I need a girlfriend/secretary/accountant/tax adviser/cook/house cleaner/.........what ever else she may be needed for to help all the time, not just 24/7/365 :!:
