Rewrap of Brunswick cues

Post by cuesplu » Thu, 09 Jan 2003 13:36:39


Hello,

I have friend in Chicago that has some 100 year old Brunswick 1 piece cues
that were purchased by his father with the table. (No they are NOT for
sale). What I am looking for is recomendation in the *Chicago area* for a
good person to rewrap the cues.

Any recommendations?

Thank you,

Michael Gleason

Michael:

Unless the wraps are in really sad shape and the cues are in very good
shape, I'd leave them alone. Cues from that era were wrapped with a heavy
twine (don't know the composition), and it is doubtful that anyone will have
any available, unless they do antique reatorations. Paul Rubino (co-editor
of the Billiard Encyclopedia) does antique restorations. Contact info is as
follows:

Mr. Paul Rubino
316 Lynden Ave.
New Windsor, NY  12553

One piece cues, unless they are fancy ones (like a model 26 1/2 or model
36), probably aren't worth the expense. If you are doing this to play with
them, you'd be better off buying new house cues. If you really want to
re-wrap them correctly, and hang the expense, then Paul is who you want to
talk to.

Adios,

Pizza Bob

Find a good Billiard Supply House buy some Irish Linen, even comes in colors
now and rewrap it yourself.  It is not difficult.  Just like wrapping a fishing
rod.

Have you ever wraped one like that, J9rider?
How did you press the linen nice and flat?
