How do you like the Porper Cut-Rite Trimmer for t*** the sides of
newly installed cue tips?

It's not very good for new tips, The blade is small and you have to
really crank on it to do the job. I've tried it on a few house cues and
didn't like it. Go with the Big Shaver from Porper for the best results
on new tips,

Brian, does this thing shape the tip into like a dime or nickel, or just
trim the sides flush?  I bought a batch of Tailsman Pro hard tips, and
forgot to get them pre-domed.  They are a pain to grind into shape with
the Ultimate tip tool, which works great with pre-domed tips, but take
forever with the raw tips.  Getting the sides flush is no problem at
all, so I don't need anything for that.

I think it has a shaper bult in also but it wouldn't be any better than
your ultimate tip tool. All undomed layered tips are a pain to crown
with out a lathe. I'd use some 150 grit sand paper curved to kind of
rough shape the tip then use your ultimate tip tool to finish shapng,
this should speed it up a little and save on your tip tool also.

I have a Big Shaver but I always use sandpaper (those strips in a
plastic sleeve) to make the initial shape and the Ultimate tip tool to
finish them off. The shaper that comes with the Porper is useless if
the tips aren't pre-domed.

Do you use the Big Shaver for shaving?   How do you like it? Granny

I do... haven't had much experience with it yet but I find it does an
OK job if you adjust it correctly and wrap some tape on the ferrule
and shaft to avoid gouging it if you get out of line. People who've
used it for a while (MarkO?) say it gets easier with a few years
practise (grin).

I've used one for years and like it a lot.  I don't see how one can
gouge a ferrule with it by "getting out of line," but then again, I
can't see how someone could spend all day running on a spinning
wheel in a cage.

Well, not gouge with the blade but I put a pretty good dent in one of
my house cues with the black plastic collar the first time I tried it.

The Big Shaver will leave black marks(from black plastic guiding
screw) all over a white ferrule if not taped off.  I learned this the
hard way.

That's one long mutha of a ferrule then.  Mine has been used on many a 1
1/4" ferrule, and it's the shaft that takes the abuse.

I agree... I probably wasn't clear. I never dent the ferrule - it's
the shaft that gets dings in it if I don't tape it. But I tape both
for safety's sake...

Hmmmm - I haven't caused any dents nor black marks on the relatively
limited number of cues I've shaved (probably less than a dozen, and all
cheap production cues).  Hamster, you've got to stop screwing so
aggressively, man.

Perhaps some ferrule material marks more easily than others.  At any
rate, it surely would be a worthwhile change to make that***white
instead of black!

What can I say...? It's in the genes.

Now that's an idea.
