I need to put a new tip on a shaft. I don't trust the two places here in Guadalajara that do that kind of work. I have the tips Tringle,or Elk Master. Can I just glue on a new tip, or is there special equipment required? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Search this board for "replace tip" or go to
Easy Pool Tutor (http://www.easypooltutor.com/article56.html) and I think you will get all the information you need.

Here is a book on the subject...
How to Tip a Pool Cue: The Laymen's Guide - Macioge, Terry - 2003

I use a razor blade to remove the old tip, the following tools, and superglue to glue on new tip.

Tools I use...
29-700 - Rapid Cue Top Sander
PM60 - Porper's Mushroom Graser
CR20 - Porper's Cut-Rite Shaper/Cutter
25-200 - Plastic Cue Clamp

Lots of tip replacement tools here...

PS, get a cheap cue to practice replacing tips on. It is easy to damage the ferrule, so best to learn on an inexpensive cue...

I hope you don't mind if I add an additional question to this thread, but when do you feel it's necessary to replace the tip on your cue? When there's how much left of it?

If someone could show pictures of a soon to be replaced tip that would be great too.

James <hr /></blockquote>Definitely replace the tip when it gets down to the thickness of a dime. Don't let it get worn too close to the ferrule or you risk damage to the ferrule. Replacing the tip earlier is always an option.
