    Nut from a pool que ball?

    Post by chaz on Sun Apr 15, 2012 7:28 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    Just a thought, has anyone cut a roller nut out of pool que ball ? The material seems as if it would be tough enough. However being new and not experienced crossbow making just a thought maybe ..............

    Cue ball mystery revealed...

    I had forgotten I had an old cue ball laying around. Definitely phenolic. Smells like a circuit board
    when drilling or sanding. I cut a flat with a hack saw, then chucked it in my wood lathe. Drilled another flat, then a 1/4" pilot hole. I was then able to clamp it in my drill press vise and hole saw out the core.
