Sometimes I get unusual requests. This Snooker cue tip repair was one such request. I must admit, it had me a bit stumped for a day or two! Many a time I’ve played both snooker & pool (badly I might add!). But repairing a cue tip was a first for me. The cue I think was made of Ash and the brass furrel which holds the tip had broken clean off the end. The brass furrel was threaded and I had to turn the cue tip end down to 5.8mm to thread the brass furrel back on. This was quite tricky and I was afraid of the cue, (which was quite expensive) splitting as there is very little material to work with, about the thickness of your little finger.
