Mike a few years back at a Joss event in Hamden you and I talked about hit and I tried out a few cue/joint/shaft/taper/ferrule/tip configurations. You had a bunch of interesting thoughts and very unique hits with these different combonations. Can you speak about which one you choose to be the *WEBB* hit, or the process you use while talking to a customer to decide which is best for him/her?
[color=#0040FF][color=#0000FF][color=#0000FF]Hi Jim
For me it's more about the overall balance, even though I core everything, depending on the outer shell of what's cored, I will still use a different material for a joint screw, Options are Titanium, stainless, brass and cored brass.
[/color][/color]
Also how do you feel being a decent player plays into these different set ups?
How would you know or understand what to change if you don't understand the action versus re-action.Another question is I didn't follow the low deflection shaft thread can you talk about your low deflection shaft and what went into it's design?
Continuing work in progress.

Are you still doing repair work at tournaments?
The economy and work load doesn't permit it.
Do you still talk, learn and share info from other cuemakers and since I know the answer can you give us the names of some of the guys you speak with on a consistant basis???
Yes,
Jim <----Done for now, some great questions guys keep them coming.[/color]

Thank you

Personally, I'm not a fan of purple heart, but that cue deserves a WOW!!!!

Mike, As time goes on can you should post more pics of cues you've finished in the normal forum? Or would you consider it not right to post a pic of what is actually somebody else's cue even though you made it?

Jim, if this thread is still around come the weekend when I'm home, I'll try to post pics of my two other Webbs. My new Webb is in the last trimester and Mike posted it's pic above.

Once in a while it might be nice, sometimes from what I've seen it's taken out of text to the degree of a sales pitch like
HEY, LOOK, DID YOU KNOW I MAKE CUES. I try not to do that.

oooohh.... I really like the pupleheart cue.... :shock:

Mike -

You've been building cues long enough to comment on pre-internet days and days of recent. Do you feel that the internet has aided in making cuemakers better or just feel it's been one of the main reasons to have 10x the amount of cuemakers necessary?

As someone else mentioned earlier, "anyone with a lathe is a cuemaker" mentality that has surfaced as of late....

Hi Ross
It's like trying to compare Military training from days of old to new, I wouldn't call it better but definitely different. Yes Sir, Anyone can buy a lathe, watch some video's, join AZ and ask all the questions you can think of, Main problem is and it really is a problem, No seasoning, Total lack of trial and error, They all assume that just because someone is replying to their question, They must be right. Can you imagine trying to sell something and when your asked what the results will be, YOU SAY, Well, so and so says it will do this. Now your selling so and so's word for your lack of experience. How much would you trust him. Just so you know, I'm not against new guys, there are a few really doing great things, It's the bullshit artist, that make the new guys look bad.

Mike,

What was the first cue you owned? Have you owned any that you sold and wish you still had?

When you decided to begin making cues, did you try to pattern them (looks and or/play) after any one person's cues? Or, did you try to take the best that you learned from different sources? Or, did you start with a clean sheet and build to what you liked and found would work best?

Is Mr. Showman's cue done yet?

Scott

Hi Scott
I started with a Meucci, hit was nice.
Then a Viking, Didn't like the way it played
Next was a Joss, I liked it very much, Never saw another one like it. Sold it locally and he still has it. I get it back if he ever sells it.
I've always been a fan of points and veneers.
