I have use a slightly diluted amount of nail polish remover.. on a piece of napkin. fold and dampen. then add a few drops of nail polish remover.. if not strong enough, add another few drops. slowly work the mixture in the cloth on the area of the super glue.

finish up the work with 600, 1200 and 1500 sand paper..

or get a razor blade and lightly scrape towards the tip. this will remove a little at a time..

Be careful with nail polish remover - I remember reading somewhere that certain types of plastics can be damaged by acetone. I know it's too late now but I like to put a piece of tape around the ferrule to protect it when I glue new tips on. - bryan_mc from Buffalo

Um, Anon, be careful when calling people names. Some might even think it was stupid to get gel superglue on the ferrule in the first place...

well, i don't know you so i'll not go beyond your post to compare relative levels of stupidity but i'd much rather give the cue dr. the job than start hacking at it myself. i do know my level of incompetence in cue repair.

honestly, i was not aware there was a
super glue "remover" out there. that would have saved me some skin the last time i superglued my fingers together.

dan...thank you for your kind interest in my remaining intelect. care to meet and shoot some?

Unfortunately, your experience with super glue is a good reason to have the job done by a cue repair person.

Well, it's too late now to remind you to use gel and use it sparingly. Regular super glue runs way too much. I use just enough gel to cover the tip completely plus just a bit that will ooze out when pressed onto the shaft. Then I wipe off the excess after about 2 minutes of pressure and let it set up about another 5 minutes.

Since the tip is oversize to the shaft, how do you plan to trim the tip to the shaft size ??? (Obviously, the best way is with a lathe.) While you're doing this trim you can also carefully trim the excess super glue. Key word here is CAREFULLY !!!

I suggest you AVOID nail polish remover (Acetone) since that may damage the ferrule.

Good Luck.....

Troy...

I have just one thing to say:

In regard to getting "Super Glue" off your ferrule; I don't know.

I do know how to get a SF Giants fan off your doorstep...

...pay him for the pizza.

Ken (said in jest, but meant it just the same!)

The tape trick works well for me, but like you say it works best before get glue on your ferrule. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

I get glue on the damn ferrule every time I put a tip on! I've been able to find Super Glue Remover at Ace, Lowes, and other hardware stores and it takes every kind of Super Glue I've ever spilled off of the ferrules just fine with no damage.....yet.

Hope it works for you.

One way is to use a glue meant for cue tips. I have used Tweetens 10 min cement for several years and never had a tip loosen or come off. Also, the best way to use it is to follow the directions. Applying to both ferrule and tip, setting them apart for 10-15 min (until gummy) and then join them. Also, you may be using too much pressure in clamping. I have put on new tips with out any clamping using Tweeten's product.

HEY!

We have fans...and evaporative cooling AND Air Conditioning. (It gets pretty hot in Arizona.)

The season is still very young and I expect it will be us battling each other for the NL West.

Ken (since moving to Texas I'm being forced to endure AL baseball and the Texas Rangers who are 1-5)

Troy, did you have to bring that up? I about lost my lunch, I had almost forgot about them. Talk about hitting below the belt!

I was a long time San Diego Chargers fan until 1988 when, during that fateful year, the Bidwells moved their football team to the Valley of the Sun.

As any good native Arizonan would have done, I adopted them as my football team. Yes, I was apparently a glutton for punishment.

But now, I am in Texas and I will continue to cheer for my Cardinals (although not too loudly) and will also continue to "boo" the Dallas Cowboys (very loudly!)

Now, before you Cowboy fans jump my ass about that statement, allow me to remind you that the last time your "Boys" saw the playoffs was a few years ago when MY Cardinals beat you in the first round and sent you back to "Southfork" or whatever you call that place where Jerry Jones calls home.

Regards,

Ken
