Repairing A Dinged Cue Stick

Repairing A Dinged Cue Stick

Does anyone know of a quick, easy, do-it-yourself method of repairing small dings in a cue stick?

I have heard of using an iron and a dish cloth but I dont know about that one. Intersted in hearing what others have to say.

    Well, since the ding is actually nothing more than compressed wood (not nicks, chips, gouges...) then the idea is that the steam would force moisture in to the woood, and thus, decompress it.

    The cloth and iron method of cue repair is good, as it regulates the heat better than the old way. Steaming out the bump teh old way would actually cause teh wood to decompress too far, causing a bump, which would then have to be sanded down. I don't have to tell you why this is not desirable.

    Using an iron and cloth is safe, clean, and just right.

    damp a paper towel and wrap it around the dinged area. Leave it for like an hour to et the wood soak up. eventually it'll rise up then lightly sand it smooth.

    Don't ever sand down a ding in a shaft, otherwise you'll be reducing the whole diamter.
