  • Removing the snooker badge/disc from the butt

    Hi Guys

    I need some advise on how to remove the badge / disc from the butt of my cue

    I have bought a personalised one and want to fit it to my cue

    Does anybody know of an easy way to remove the old one without damaging the cue

    PS - not bothered about damaging the disc whats coming off

    Thanks

    Drill a small hole in the centre of the badge then put a small screwdriver or similar in the hole and gently lever badge out.

      I am assuming the current disc does not say "Parris Ultimate 101" or anything like that?
      Up the TSF!

          or use a slightly bigger drill and it rips it out en route!

            Thanks for the advice. Will give it a try. Would i just use gel superglue to stick the new one on?

              I'd have a look how it sits first, you might want to use a slower drying thicker alternative that the badge can sit on to give a flush finish. I've used wood glue in the past, over fill the hole sguidge the badge in, wipe the excess and leave for 24 hours.
              No one is listening until you make a mistake!
