Default SOLD--Custom 8-ball shift **** (slight blemish)

Category: Interior
Price: $40
Private or Vendor Listing: Private Listing
Part fits: SN95, New Edge
Location (State/Prov): FL
Item Condition: Brand New

SOLD!!!

$40.00 including shipping via Priority Mail...

I bought a dozen 8-***** from a different supplier than I normally use, and after getting the first one bored out I found that one and eight of the others had slight blemishes in the "8"--very slight, but unacceptable to my standards. The ball is smooth and polished at that point, it's just that the black resin for the number bled a bit.

I returned those I had not bored yet, but finished this one:



As you can see it comes with a polished jam nut (to keep the "8" aligned) and two polished spacers; 3/8" and 3/4".

Here's 'tother side of the **** showing the polished alloy insert:



I normally sell the 8-***** for $60.00, $10 more than a cue ball because of the need to make the jam nut. $40.00 will get you this slightly blemished ****, including shipping via USPS Priority Mail (US only).

PayPal will work, I can send you a PP invoice; just send me a real email (to: [email protected]) including the email address to which you would like the invoice sent.

Or if you would like to send a money order, send a message to the above email address and I will send you my full name and address.

I will ship it out within 24 hours of receiving payment.

BTW: the blemish is barely visible in the real world; I purposely exaggerated the contrast in the photo...

I received a PM asking if it was a "real" 8-ball. It is I apologise for not making that clear. I buy first quality International competition 8-***** and cue-***** and make shift *****. I got a a bad batch of 8-***** and made the **** being offered here before I realised it:



drilling the ball:


turning the bushing:


boring the bushing:


parting he bushing:


raw bushing:


finished bushing:



all done, bushing inserted with J-B Weld--it will NOT come loose:
