Pool cue glue

I asked over in rec.billiards, but no one answered.
Last evening, I messed up two tips with SuperGlue. I had used it before successfully. What is a good glue besides Tweeten's, which can be hard to find? Is regular contact cement good? Another?
I need to make a mini lathe, and alignment rig that will do it right, but until then, I'm stuck with a cheap clamp and glue.
The new tips I am looking at are up to $25 per tip, so I don't want any screwups.
Help appreciated.

I would expect the tip supplier to have an appropriate adhesive for their tips.

If you are serious enough about the game to buy a $25 tip, then you should pay someone to install it right. Certainly the diameter of the tip and the diameter of the end of your queue are not identical... So why "waste" a $25 tip and possibly ruin your queue over this?

It wasn't super glues fault.

Tweetens is not a good glue, super glue gel is a good glue for this.
Is regular contact cement good? Another?
Nope! and Nope!
Super glue gel is the way to go, detailed answer sent an hour ago on RSB.

I found Tweeten's to be absolutely useless, though it's possible I got a "bad" tube.
This is not so much a recommendation as just a data point for you. I've re-tipped a number of cues using a dab of boat epoxy (because that's what I had). Gives me more time to align than "super glue" but doesn't take all night to set like some glues. I assume it will be a pain if I ever need to redo one of those tips...
FWIW, I even broke the end off my cheap cue (split diagonally with the grain when I dropped it), and epoxied it back together. I've been breaking as hard as I can (which is pretty hard) for several years now without it failing.
