    We manufacture several cue lathes with our most popular cue lathe being the Deluxe Cue Smith™

Deluxe Cue Smith™
The Cue Builders Lathe!!!

     The Deluxe Cue Smith™ cue lathe is probably the best cue lathe ever made in its weight and price range. It is about a foot wide and and six feet long and weighs a little over 100 pounds. It has the same precision dove tail bed as the other Cue Smith Lathes. But from there up the Deluxe is heavier made. Instead.... - Go to Cue Lathe Page ->

    Chris started building lathes and cues in the late 1980's and has been doing it pretty much full time since 1991.  The cues to the right appeared on the cover of American Cueist Magazine in June 1997 and sold for $350 to $3000.
    Chris builds his cues with the same equipment he sells. He imports some of the highest quality exotic woods that can be found to use in his cues.
    Some of his specialties are Sterling silver stitch rings, Ivory, Abalone, and Turquoise inlays.  His flat faced 5/16" joint with phenolic insert has given his cues a reputation for their solid feel and high action hit.  He varies woods, inlay materials, and designs so Every Cue is Custom.

     Some have asked, "What is the CUE SMITH INLAY MACHINE and how does it work?" In technical terms it is a Three Axis Linear Motion Manual Pantomill with .001" micro adjustments. It has the ability to cut out the part from your inlay material (Ivory, Abalone, Wood, Silver, Gold, Mother-of Pearl, Plastic, etc...) then cut the pocket out of the cue to accept the part.  You can also make patterns with this machine.
      The normal procedure for this is to use either the male or female template to cut the parts out using the .055" bit while adjusting the size of the part by the size of the stylus used. Then you chuck up the cue in the machine
using the indexing head and use the .055" cutting bit and mill (hog) out the middle of a row of pockets in the cue, then you decrease the size of the stylus and the size of the bit to the .035" and clean up the edge of the pockets until the parts fit perfectly. Now you are ready to glue the parts into the cue. Once dry you turn down the inlays flush with the cue on your lathe.
