Stains the Ferrule!!
October 23, 2011
Used it once, won't ever use it again. It stains he ferrule!! Burnishes fine if you don't mind the ugly orange ring around the top of you ferrule. Use water like the professionals do. It won't stain anything and burnishes great! The only reason I'm giving it one star is becasue the leather piece is a great piece of burnishing leather. But any piece of leather wil do. Use the unfinised back side of the leather not the finished side for burnishing. I do all my tips and tips for all my friends that I play pool with and most of the people in our pool league. Make sure that the person that is doing your tips is using a lathe. Many of them say that they do but actually don't. There is no way to insure that your ferrule is perfectly true or that the tip is shaped exactly centered, unless it's being done on a lathe. I bought just about every gadget and gizmo on the market before I built a lathe. It truly is the best! Can do all type of repairs including ferrule replacement, shaft sanding and cleaning, waxing, wraps, etc.
