Does anyone know anything about Dennis Swift out of Kentucky? I have one of his old hand tooled leather cue cases - looks to be about 15 or 20 years old - and I just acquired a case made only this year. I can't find him listed anywhere. Any help?

Thanks,

Chris

Now that you mention it, I believe those Widowmaker cases are Dennis Swift cases - same design. Live and learn.

Dennis made all of Tad's cases, like these: Tad Cases (http://www.jjcue.com/tadcases.htm)


Meullers is also selling cases that look like Swift cases. Check these out:
Meuller Tooled Cases (http://www.poolndarts.com/product.cfm/sku/LT17.cfm)

I just would like to get a phone number and address for him.

I cant believe that the guy ended the auction early I was waiting for the last day. That made me so mad. I really liked the case. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif but hey congrats on the case. I have been looking around forever trying to find a nice leather 2x4 case at a good price and I was excited to see it on ebay but really upset when I looked today and saw that it was ended early. But its not too bad because I won the auction on a Sledgehammer at a really good price. Now I just need a case to put it in /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Jay,

He has another one if you want it. I paid more than the listed price. I didn't know Dennis was making cases anymore - these may be the last few new cases left.

Bear in mind these are hand made, hand tooled cases - they are worth paying up for because each one is unique.

Sorry ruk I'm buying these old tooled cases, not selling. One I would love to find would be a Chas Clements but I am definitely not going to fork over $1000 for one. Here's some eye candy for you:
