Construction shafts OB-1 by www.askabilliards.com
 

Construction shafts OB-1

Building the OB-1 cue shaft is a unique process in its own. Obviously, the shaft differs from other shafts out there so the construction methods are also different.

The OB-1 starts as flat laminated "Hard Rock Maple” boards. These boards are then cut into strips, six of which will be used for each shaft. Two of these strips are shown below.



These "Strips" are then turned between centers in order to "stress relieve" them. This step helps to ensure the shaft is straight, and stays straight.

The strips are then machined to allow them to be joined together into a bundle of six pieces.
The bundle is glued up and put in a clamp to ensure complete glue coverage and no voids or gaps.
The "Blank” comes out of the clamp ready to be made into a shaft.
The ferrule is made from flat laminated "Hard Rock Maple”. The laminations are arranged so that the grain is "clocked” 45 degrees with each layer. The ferrules are made in a block that is then machined into the individual ferrules.


After installing the sound dampening foam core, its mostly common shaft construction steps from this point.























All that is left is to apply the finish and tip. We now use as our standard tip, the Talisman Pro medium layered at no additional charge.
The shafts come in all standard joint sizes and styles.

  • 5/16x14 black collar or black collar with a metal ring
  • 5/16x18 black collar
  • 3/8x10 black collar
  • Radial black collar or black collar with a metal ring
  • Uni Lock black collar or black collar with a metal ring

    Some cues have standard configurations.
