Whom It May Concern:
I feel glad and surprising at finding CH custom cues's HP.
Because I have been useing CH cue,
and my cue is reported in your HP!
My cue is center of picture at the bottom of contents "CH cues",
priced $2,400 and described "sold".
I got the cue last year at the shop of billiard tools in Japan named "NIHON
TAMADAI HONSYA" that means " Leading shop of Billiard ball
and table at Japan".
CH cue is very controllable.
My main shaft's tip is exchanged medium Hard of "TAD Tip".
The compatibility of them is very good!!
And feeling of shot is good too!
I have an firm intention of usind the CH cues from now on.
Now, my CH cue has no trouble.
But I will request repairs, if my CH cue has a trouble in future.
I feel good to finding CH custom cues HP.
from CH cue user at Japan.
Chris Hightowers book on cue building should be the first thing
you buy if you are thinking of making your own cue. There is a vast
of information in this book that is not available anywhere else. His
making videos round out the package into a real learning experience.
are must have items for any new cuemaker.
I've been using Chris' Deluxe Cuesmith lathe and the Inlay Machine
for quite a few years now. The main reason I purchased from Chris was
I felt Chris would stand behind his equipment, he's done that and much
more. Cue construction can be puzzling and frustrating at times, Chris
was always available and willing to help.
Chris' equipment does what he says it will do. It's accurate and most
of all, dependable. If you are going to build cues the inlay machine
is a must and Chris' does the job extremely well.
I purchase much of my wood and inlay products from Chris. The quality
has always been good. You can find lesser expensive wood, but not all
woods are equal.

I just sold my first stick. It was a Coco Bolo Sneaky Pete. Sure
was a good feeling. It turned out great, as good as any I've seen.

|My Deluxe Cue Smith lathe is a good lathe. I am not able to compare
other known cue lathes because I have not
worked on them. But I do like the Deluxe Cuesmith lathe.
Now for the things I like -
1) dovetail bed is positive and secure.
2) jaws on both side of the lathe are a plus.
3) The book is a good guide and the videos are good as well.
I do recommend investing in the book. I learned time saving and material
saving ways to get things done more quickly and the vendor references
back of the book are useful. In short, buy his book.
4)The collets, collars and pins are great.
5) the reverse feature is a great plus.
6) the wrap motor and foot pedal is great.
Others have said that Chris stands behind his product. I am in that camp.
Chris is available on the phone for discussion on how to perform certain
tasks and he will correct any problems that might arise. I would happily
recommend his lathe to the next Balabushka out there.
After buying Chris' products....
GET A DUST COLLECTION SYSTEM! MOST EXOTIC WOODS HAVE DUST THAT IS TOXIC.
EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT GOING IN AND THE THE DANGERS AREN'T REALLY
BY MOST PEOPLE. I FOUND OUT WHEN I RIPPED A PIECE OF COCOBOLO WITHOUT

|Please keep sending your e-mail specials. The Deluxe Cuesmith that
I bought last year has been doing great. My repair business has been
steadily increasing. I put flyers in the team packets of our local APA
and Players leagues, and for awhile had so much business that I could
hardly keep up. I'll be ordering some add-ons for the lathe soon. Keep
up the good work.

As always, you have been putting some excellent products on the market.
The long splice butts are great. Points were really nice for that type
of butt. Keep up the good work!
I've been using a "Deluxe Cue Smith" built by Chris Hightower
for over a year. It is an extremely fine lathe for the cue builder.
Capable of doing anything you could possibly ask from a cue lathe,
it's strong, but light and very portable. I've run it constantly for
up to 10 hours at a time without any problems. As a journeyman machinist
I appreciate the extreme accuracy of the lathe's components.
The fast and courteous service from Chris is the best there is.
Also, his friendly and knowledgeable answers to all questions is invaluable.
He always has taken the time to talk on the phone to help with any
problem. The whole "Cue Man Billiards" experience is second
