If you don't already own one - you need one.  http://www.bluebookinc.com/

On top of that you need a copy of the Billiard Encyclopedia.  These two
reference books are invaluable for the cue industry.

Jerry Franklin learned his craft in part from and with David Kersenbrock.

I am searching for information on these great cuemakers. I have noticed
that their cues look very similar and I am wondering if they worked
together at one time. I have searched all over the net and can find no
history of either one of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I am interested in all of the great cuemakers. If anyone knows of any
sites with cumaker bios please pass them my way.

I was a given the Billiard Encyclopedia by my wife for Xmas and a very close
friend for my Bday(in Dec). I sent one of them back because 2 of the same
book seemed like over kill. What a great book.

According to Laurie Franklin,  Jerry worked with and learned from
David for several years. He bought out the business from David and
named it SouthWest Cues.  David stuck around for some time doing
design work and what-not.
Jerry is missed as a great talent in the cue making industry and, I'm
told, a very nice person.  Sorry I never got to meet him.
