How do you change a cue tip on a ferrule?
Replace the ferrule if there is a split down the side and a tenon running right through the center of it. Use a lathe or a pair of pliers to remove the ferrule. Squeeze the split on the opposite side and move it around to remove it. Just be careful not to damage the wooden tenon in the middle of the cue stick.
