  • Robert Osborne’s New Repair/Alterations Prices

    For those who use Robert services there’s an updated price list copied and pasted directly from his website below:


    Cue Repairs and Alterations

    We also specialise in all types of CUE REPAIRS and ALTERATIONS.

    Please note we can only carry out any cue repairs or alterations if the cue is personally collected from the workshop once the work is finished, we are happy to receive any cues sent by courier or through the post from within the UK but we are unable to return them this way they would have to be collected from the workshop. Unfortunately we can't receive any cues sent by courier from overseas.

    Please Also Note we carry out a 10 minute re tipping service for personal callers to our workshop by appointment (please ensure you fetch both parts of a jointed cue) all other repairs or alterations would have to be left with us for a minimum of 48 hours. For customers supplying a laminated tip for us to fit (Kamui etc) please ensure the tip is a minimum of 1mm larger than the ferrule size.

                Let me tot up the work I did on Mathias' cue at Osborne prices

                shortening shaft for bigger ferrule, lets say new ferrule fitted & tip £40
                lengthening shaft with four lower splices, same as lengthening cue so £150
                remove badly fitted joints and replace with my own £80
                re taper shaft £50
                solid ekki mini butt, OK not ebony but as good or better call it £30
                sand, refinish and oil whole cue £60

                total of £410 and I charged £95 and he paid £100 for going the extra mile

                I just made a small nine inch extension for a bloke who wanted something to screw onto his 3/4 shaft when in a certain pub with restricted space around the pool table. Made it so it balanced like a small cue so properly weighted and all that, charged £25, what am I doing wrong
                Speak up, you've got to speak up against the madness, you've got speak your mind if you dare
                but don't try to get yourself elected, for if you do you'll have to cut your hair

                  Once you make a name for yourself you can increase your prices to whatever the market will pay. Same for everything really.

                    Bit on the pricey side to be honest and gonna think twice about going there now but maybe that’s the idea.
                    What I find a bit much is this:
                    SAND, RE FINISH AND OIL SHAFT £40
                    SAND, RE FINISH AND OIL WHOLE CUE £60
                    It sure what the extra £20 merits reallly and £40 for a referrule is a lot I think it maybe me.

                      At least with Robert Osborne you have the option. Parris will only work on Parris cues now so there aren't many options in London especially south of the river

                        And that is the problem . I want my TW re-finished and the only option south of the river is Robert Osborne , which isn't a bad option but he has no competition .


                        Plus I really like the finish of his cues .


                        I was going to use Colin [ Ninja Cues ] , but a bit of a trot for me from Surrey .

                            Dean jones has a really nice finish on his cues, why not try him?

                              On the other hand Parris will make you a cue to your needs, Osborne only provides the Chinese agents with that option, no good calling yourself the name of the worlds finest cues if you aren't providing the world with 'said' cues!!
