  • Peradon Supafile Cue Tip Shaper

    http://www.peradon.co.uk/tips,-tippi...-(2219-c).aspx

    How the hell do you use this thing?

    I've been holding the cue vertical with the butt on the floor and sanding the edges of the tip with downward motions, but have failed to obtain a good shape. Are you supposed to actually stick the cue in the hole, then rotate it? I'm scared of trying that for fear of ruining the shaft.

      As suggested get yourself some decent abrasive paper I use the black stuff more of a wet and dry type the brown always appears a bit harsh if you watch Mike Wooldridge video on replacing a tip he tells you the best to use, The Gizmo you have (With due respect is B***** useless even if you use it right the sandpaper inside the cavity will wear out and shred after just a short time (Been there done it got the tee shirt.) YES IF YOU DONT MASK THE SHAFT WITH TAPE YOU WILL MARK THE SHAFT. 180 / 240 grit paper make a sort arc shape with the paper in the palm of your hand and sand downwards. Always mask the cue with masking tape as on slip can mark the cue.

        Cheers for the masking tape tip, wouldn't have thought of that! Although, now that I AM thinking about it...Won't there be an issue with the glue residue making the shaft sticky after the tape is removed?

          If you are talking about the glue you use to fix tip just be extra careful that you dont use too much so that it squeezes over the side regarding the adhesive left by masking tape just take a SLIGHTLY DAMP cloth and clean off then buff cue with dry one you can get masking tape that leaves NO sticky residue. Hope this helps

              I use these, they're great. A bit more open than the Peradon plastic think, these are metal and very solid in the hand and they last forever.
