Hi. I need help replaceing my jump-breaker tip. It just popped off today doing crazy masse shots /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif. I got the tip and its almost brand new...now I need to get it back and for good this time. Where do I put glue and what glue is good ? Will super attack do ? How long do I have to let it dry and so on. Thnx everyone.

I always use 5 Minute 2 part epoxy. You can get it at any hardware store. Looks like this:

Many folks here have recommended Super Glue Gel in the past.

With the way some people here are obsessed with tips I'm surprised you did not get more responses.

Talk to Spiderman- he does tips and uses a pretty strong glue. it might be the epoxy but I'm not sure.

I believe Spiderman will say to use the slow setting 2-part epoxy. That is the adhesive he used on both my phenolic and my bakelite tips for my jumpers. The super glue may very well crystalize and pop right back off again. Get those bonding surfaces really clean first...sid

Brent,

The glues that I use and I have always seen other professional repair people use is 'Duro Super Glue Gel'. I would use that two part epoxy for ferrules but not for tips.

Make sure that you rough up the back of the tip with some course sandpaper and that the end of the shaft is sanded and perfectly clean. It sets up in just a few seconds so you'll need to work fast. Ready to play in about 5 to 7 minutes.

Do it right!

I'd wonder if that holds true for them installing synthetic composition tips for these jumpers? S-glue soaks into leather ok, but I wonder about those less than porous types like the phenolics. The slow setting adhesives may "linger" and adhere better...just a thought...sid

Brent's cue has a leather tip.

Then I do not understand why he wants to preserve the old tip at all. Only reason I'd try to save a popped off tip is if it was as a specalty. Leather tips are far too easy to find. So much for my assumptions...sid
