  • Oiling and cleaning your cue

    So Iím new hear and after perusing the forums I realised I should have cleaned my cue properly and oiled it.
    Iíve had it for 19 years and itís only had a wipe down with a dry duster !!
    Anyway yesterday I cleaned it with a damp cloth and couldnít believe how much chalk and muck came off it.
    I searched the garage for linseed oil to no avail but I found some flax oil in the kitchen and wiped the cue down with it and was surprised how much sank into the wood.
    I left it overnight and wiped it down with kitchen roll and then buffed it with a clean microfibre cloth.
    What a massive difference ! It feels silky smooth and I canít wait to play a few frames tomorrow
    Flax oil = highly recommended 👍

    They are a few old you can use for finishing cues.
    Linseed bring just one, some use lemon oil or a mix of a few.
    As long as your happy with the finish, is all that matters.
    For that one you've always wanted...

      So I thought, this oil smells like putty. After a quick google search it turns out that flax oil is actually an edible form of linseed oil.
      That explains why it worked so well ����

        Putty has linseed oil in it, so that's why it smells the same.
