I will have to look this guy up at VF.

However, I find it very easy to tip a cue.

First you take your cue to the U.S. Open and visit the guy in the lobby and ask him to put a new tip on your cue. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Another alternative, would be to take your cue to Valley Forge, visit Ted Harris's booth and ask him to put a new tip on your cue.

I seen no need for a book. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

the link has since changed - its about a bridge now

but would that happen to be about Jim McCowin from Elwood?

I just had him make me a Sneaky pete jump/break.

EXCELLENT work. He is a very nice guy and will work with you.

Problem is he can't put on a tip to save his life. I had him put a moori on 2 cues and both times he BARELY shaped them and did not trim them(they were still sticking out 1mm past the ferrule)

When I asked him about this he said he does that because different people like their tips different ways.

I didn't know people liked their tip larger than the ferrule. I had to get a trimmer and shaper to finish it.
