Maker of pool cues from 1994 to present in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Arnot Q. Wadsworth spent over twenty years in the wood industry, working as a logger and in a sawmill. He loved the game of pool, and even tried to play on the pro tour. But he didn´t feel he was good enough to win against the pros. He was always interested in cues, and knew that with his knowledge of wood combined with the two years of formal training in a machine shop when he was younger, he could be a cuemaker. Arnot was a hands-on worker in the sawmill, but a disabling back injury left him unable to continue to his satisfaction. This was his chance to make cues. When his wife urged him to go for it, he made the commitment to devote himself to cuemaking. Arnot bought all of the necessary equipment, and began experimenting with different construction techniques.
Arnot ultimately developed a unique way of making cues. He uses a short splice, but he adds the splice after he has attached the handle. The V cuts actually go from the forearm into the handle section. The points continue below the wrap, adding extra strength to the butt half of the cue. Arnot did all inlay work on a manual pantograph until 1999, when he started using a CNC machine. He likes to do chain link designs in the rings, and does not believe in sacrificing structural integrity for the sake of aesthetics. Arnot has also developed his own laminated shafts called the TerminatorShaftT3. They are made from blanks with 28 horizontal layers. When turned, a finished shaft will have about 22 laminations at the joint.
Although the first 50 or so cues Arnot made had no identification marks, he has since been marking every cue. Less expensive cues have had an "Arnot Q" label on the butt cap, while he has cut the logo into the butt caps of more expensive cues. Late in 1998, Arnot started to sign and date every cue on the forearm, with a few signatures appearing on the butt cap instead. Arnot operates a large website for his business, which is updated every day and includes an up-to-date listing of many current cuemakers.
Arnot Cues are guaranteed for life against manufacturing defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have an Arnot cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to order a new cue, contact Arnot Q´s, listed in the Trademark Index.
