Maker of pool cues from 2001 to present in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Jim Aldren started playing pool in 1968 while studying electrical engineering at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, South Dakota. He´s been playing pool in the South Dakota local area over the past 30 years. Jim works at a large electronics company as a senior manufacturing engineer, where he supports many computer-controlled machines and manufacturing processes. Many of the jigs and tooling, including the CNC currently being used in his shop, were designed and built using pieces of excess manufacturing equipment from work. His engineering background and interests in pool and woodworking led to building the first cues when he and his former partner, Stan Hawkins, started Black Hawk Custom Cues in 1994. In 2001, Jim sold his interest in BHCC and started Aldren Cues. He has been building made-to-order cues ever since. Jim continues to perfect his process through continuous improvement in equipment, tooling and techniques. The process of building a well-executed cue is as exciting to Jim as it is to a satisfied customer who is involved in the design of their own personal cue. Jim has created a quick-release extension for many wheelchair-confined pool players. This extension is designed to attach directly through the butt of their normal shooting cue.
