Maker of pool cues from 1986 to present in Duarte, California.
Tim Padgett became interested in pool as a teenager. He would watch the game being played in the local room where he played pinball and video games. By the age of eighteen, Tim started to play the game, and eventually he was playing pool professionally.
In 1982, Tim visited Bert Schrager to have a shaft made. While Tim was admiring the work Bert was doing, Bert had mentioned the employee he had lost that same week. By the end of their conversation, Tim agreed to start working for Schrager. This led to an apprenticeship which lasted three years.
After learning the art of cuemaking from Schrager, Tim left to work at a machine shop. In 1986, while still working at the machine shop, a Japanese cue buyer approached Tim with a business offer. The gentleman had seen some of the work Tim had done for Schrager and told Tim that if he started making cues, he would place an order for the first hundred.
That year, Tim founded Padgett Custom Cues. Since then, Tim has been making less than 50 cues per year, by hand, without the use of CNC. Tim takes a great degree of pride in his work, making every component except for the tips, bumpers, and screws. Every Padgett cue is marked "Padgett" on the butt cap, and no two cues have been identical. Tim likes to use a lot of ivory, and he also makes some of his own templates for the pantograph.
Padgett cues are guaranteed indefinitely against construction defects that are not the result of warpage or abuse. If you have a Padgett cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to Tim about ordering a new Padgett cue, contact Padgett Custom Cues, listed in the Trademark Index.
