This is the machine for the serious cue maker!

The Deluxe Cue Smith 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 of the standard 15mm spindle bore, it has a 1-3/8" plus Spindle bore. It has a triple bearing headstock and uses the larger 2-L belt, which gives it more torque. It has two more inches of swing than the other lathes, and the steady rest has the larger bore also. The collets can be used in the headstock chuck or the steady rest. 

If you order the Taper Attachments up front you get a larger handwheel on your carriage. You also get the internal spring loaded, instant touch of a lever access to your taper bars. This makes stainless joints, butts and shafts much easier to taper. You can also make your shaft taper bar removable for an extra $50 and add additional shaft bars for $150 each.

With the optional heavy duty 3/4 HP DC motor you can core, drill, and tap joints and weight bolts under power. Another option is the rear chuck which makes working on the short sections of the cue much faster since you don't need a collet. Both of the headstock chucks are the same precision speed scroll chucks found on all our lathes, except they have the larger bore. It comes mounted on a oak plyboard and has an optional cabinet with aluminum locking storage box for $275, and includes a Variable Speed DC motor, wrapping foot control, shaft and butt collets, three lathe pins, two cutting bits, 1/2" tailstock chuck, concave live center, sealer, cleaner, wax and two hour DVD.

This shows the Deluxe Cue Smith headstock with both chucks, the larger handwheel, and larger tailstock. You can use the steady rest behind or in front of the headstock. The headstock has 24 position indexing for cutting points, slots or inlays.
This shows the full length view. Use the router as shown with the taper attachments and power feed to cut shafts and butts with much less vibration than with standard tooling. You can also offset the tailstock to cut a taper or point grooves.
This Picture shows the Deluxe Cue Smith cutting in points using the router and power feed.
This picture shows the Deluxe Cue Smith milling wood threads with the Thread Milling Attachment option. It has the ability to mill inside and outside threads with the included Dremel Tool and bits. We can also build this with brackets to fit your router which allows use of heavier duty bits (included). With the router you can make clean threads for carom cues or thread on your, butt plates, joints and ferrules. You can even thread the forearm and handle together without having to tap the threads. This is  $450 option with one thread pitch for package 2 only..

#2 Morse Taper Tailstock. Not a replacement for the Speed Lever Tailstock, but a great second tailstock for drilling larger holes. $210 optional.
