So what's the little dot all about anyways???

Yes, it's a bit strange, so we thought we would explain a little more about it.

When installing a joint pin, most cue makers drill and tap the hole a bit deeper than needed
to allow a spot for the excess epoxy to settle when the pin is glued into the cue.

If you don't leave this extra space, excess glue can split the forearm
open with an hydraulic effect while gluing the pin into the cue.

However, this technique also has a drawback... it leaves a hollow cavity and potential weak spot under the joint.

Big deal or not???

Hmmmm… Maybe that small hollow cavity could be a problem...

Over the years I've had many cues brought to me after this breakage occured.
The split is pretty much un-repairable and even if you did get it fixed, would you want to play with it???

Alright, now to the point......
The most effective way to provide "glue relief" is to drill a small hole from
the exterior of the cue that connects with the base of the drilled and tapped pin hole.
Any excess glue can easily come out of this small "relief" hole.
Then the hole gets plugged with a small wooden dowel, leaving a little dot on the cue just below the joint.

Weird or not, I guarantee that our cues will never break in this spot. We've eliminated the weakest spot in a cue!
The same technique is also used at the "B" joint, (the joint that joins the forearm to the handle of the cue).
This dot is not as easily noticeable because it gets covered by the wrap and the points of the cue, but rest assured:
There are no potentially hazardous hollow spots at this point in our cues either.

Best of all, this procedure allows the pin to "bottom out" when inserting it into the cue
which is a VERY desireable situation when constructing a solid feeling cue.

Oh, and by the way: Since we now have all solid material under the pin... the cues hit awesome!!!

A little bit about our cues...

Anything in our cues is customizable as far as materials, weight, length,
joint style, shaft taper, butt thickness and of course the inlay work.

We always inlay the finest woods and exotic materials on the market.
