How to Remove Lacquer from your Snooker Cue Shaft


This is one of the most common questions I get asked, “How can I get the lacquer off my cue shaft and butt!”

Personally, I hate lacquer although I realise it has a place. Trying to cue with a shaft that is lacquered is to me, just sticky. I prefer an oiled shaft or one that is an oil / wax mix. We all like what we like so to speak so each to their own.

The video gives a very simplistic way of how to remove lacquer whilst trying to answer a lot of the questions I get sent at the same time.

You can use chemicals to remove lacquer but for me I would rather use a scraper and go from there as I can feel how much is coming off and can control it. What you need to be careful of is many of the cheaper cues from specific countries use lacquer wholesale but they use it over resin / man made cue butts. So, before you go steaming into remove the lacquer you might want to confirm what the butt is made from as you may well scratch the man made butt to pieces and they then discolour.

Hopefully the video will at least give you an idea of what lies ahead!
