im pretty set on drilling and tappin a pool/billiards 8 ball, and using it as a gear stick knob.

anyone know how hard this would be? i have no clue what pool balls are made off, would they drill? or shatter?

or easier yet, has anyone done it before that has any advice?

I did mine with a genuine pool ball, it drills fine but doesnt tap that well, but if you do it carefully it'll be fine, =]
