I am overwhelmed by the quality of stuff (that is a biblical term, you know) that gets posted here.

PRMs recent post of canes is an excellent example of how you guys get, repair, and make make some really nice stuff (again).

Too make it look even better I have decided that since I have found a working camera I should share some "Junkque" that I have gathered.

Tonight I would share (assuming the attachment works) something once common and fairly worthless that as it happens fell from a stack of things I was lookng through this afternoon in what passes for my shop.

A friend bought it around 1972 if memory serves correctly but it may have been later it was however at that time when he actually used such things.

Given that this "walking stick" is to short for my 74 inches I would bet it was way to short for his 76, but maybe his arms were like an orangatans and I never noticed it.

Yes it is a cheap brass fitted walking stick that convers into a pool que (thus the title)

The walking stick is hollow and contains the other half of the stick, when assembled the brass tip screw onto the barss knob and that screws back into place leaving one with a full sized pool que that starts with P and ends with ool right here in River City.

Without further ado.....

No not really, but i did have one just like it when I was in HS, which makes it an antique most likely.
:D

And if that brass pommel knob is solid instead of hollow, you could really put a hurting on someone with it.

If it's like the one I had, the brass ball should screw in half also revealing a rubber bumper.
