    You should be able to buy them from most pool websites. Otherwise you can buy bags of 10 or 50 off ebay for next to nothing.

    A tip will stick fine to these ferrules, but they are more sensitive to tip spread, similar to an ivory ferrule in that way. The outward pressure from the tip, particularly if it starts to mushroom, or if you play more on one side of the tip, can weaken the fibres in the ferrule and over time could cause a crack.

    Thank you for educating me about the pads and I have bought 30 for $10 from fleabay and I'll fit one when they arrive. It will stop sanding a tiny bit of ferrule every time I replace the tip.

    Do you mind sharing the ebay link of what you've purchased?

    I wouldn't get the White, but Red could work.

    And for anyone buying the tweeten sander i cannot stress enough, put PLENTY of tape or a reasonably thick piece of card around your cues shaft or the metal clamp teeth will make indents into the wood, why they never went with rubber pads or rubber teeth I've no idea.

    ^^^^^^
    This.... I have a tube of paper permanently in the sander but I am still careful not to tighten the clamp more than is needed to hold it in place.
