"Replace Your Tip

You will need a Stanley Knife, Cue Tip, Sandpaper and Super Glue - Step by Step

Remove the old tip by cutting it off with a Stanley knife as shown in Fig 1.

Cut as close to the ferrule as possible without cutting into the ferrule or wood of the cue. Scrape the remainder of the surface clean where the old tip was glued to, by rotating the Stanley Knife carefully across the surface, as shown in Fig 2.

Take a small piece of sandpaper and press it tightly against the surface where the old tip was placed. Rotate the sandpaper firmly against the surface until it is completely flat,level and smooth. See Fig 3

Lay the sandpaper flat on a smooth surface facing up, and sand the bottom of the tip in a circular motion, until the base of the tip is smooth. (Fig 4).

You should now have a new tip which has the base sanded smooth to remove any lose fibres and a snooker cue, with the tip removed and the top, level and smooth. Place a small drop of glue on the surface of the cue that you have sanded. (Fig 5).

Place the tip carefully on the flat surface of the cue where thedrop of glue rests, (Fig 6).

Press down on the tip, without moving it off centre, (Fig 7). Quick drying glue will set in seconds, but leave it for five minutes to be sure.

Take the sandpaper and rotate it around the edge of tip attached to the ferrule.

Using a light sandpaper shape the cue tip in downward strokes, to create the domed tip effect, (Fig 8).

Chalk the cue tip, before striking the cue ball. Your new tip may feel soft and spongy until it is knocked in. This is normal.Do not attempt power shots; in particular, deep screw shots until you are satisfied that the cue tip is ready.
