    Whoever done the work on it originally absolutely butchered it! So I sent it over to Martin Daly to sort out

      Some used to have very large tips from their billiards days!

          I've just tried fitting a mushroom tip using a pencil sharpener and that went well. My video cards just given the ghost up so when the new one comes I'll do a video to show how to do it easily.

            You can use pencil sharpener style tip trimmers from eBay. They are just over sized pencil sharpeners and they work a treat and very cheap. I have just done a couple of tips using one for the first time and it was so easy. One was a harder laminated tip and no problems. Very neat job!

              Have to agree. Brilliant "invention" and so cheap. Bought two a couple of years ago and they have gone a bit blunt now so just threw them away.

                a friend wanted a overhanging tip once, so I put some masking tape, about five layers I think, and my "pencil-sharpner" did a really good job; one happy customer

                  Good tip. Apologies for the pun!
