Post subject:  Anatomy of a Cue Week 3: Short Spliced Points

I've had something unexpected pop up and I will be away for a couple of days. My homework is not done so I have nothing ready for this segment. Someone else will have to step up with some short splice pictures or you will have to wait till I get back.

Edit: The purpose of this segment is to show the basics of short splice construction. Details like how the veneers are added etc. will come later.

Here are a few forearms and a V cutting set-up for h/s.

Those milling machine set ups look real nice. Is that a Brianna collet there?

Yes, they work exceptionally well. I no longer use that carbide shaper head however. I now have a double sided cutter with 20 cutting edges and does a much cleaner job. I even had to slow the mill/drill's speed down a little. I leave that collet in place until the forearm is down to the size that I desire to attach to the handle. If while making passes a defect should arise in a point I can throw it back into the jig and cut out the point perfectly and install a new one. As I've posted before, it's the best thing that's come out of his shop.

That picture of the grooves looks pretty clean to me. How much better can it be :?:

I love that top picture every time I see it. Such beautifully machined components. So nice. 8)

Thanks Scott
Although there are many different ways to achieve the same results, I like doing it the way you see it. People that visit also get a kick out of it, It gives them a little understanding of what goes into a forearm.

Are those veneers already glued to the points so they get dropped in the hole as one unit?

For those of us who are not cue makers, can some one please educate us and tell us what we are looking at in all of those pictures?

Thanks in advance.

Yes they are fitted to fit the Vee groove.
