1993 Schon
 
Hi all.. Not too sure if this section is the right place for this thread but here goes..

I bough this particular Schon: http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=249637

Would like inputs from those AZ'ers who have more knowledge on Schon cues.. What joint is that? It looks different from the standard 5/16x14.. If i were to get a new shaft from schon would it fit? And I noticed that very few schon shafts have that 'Schon 13' sign on the collar. Is there any significance of that sign?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know about pin but I know the schon 13 on the shaft was a only used on shafts made in 1993

yes, the newer shafts will fit,,,,,that pin was only used about a year, but it's the 5/16-14 thread.

That's an ACME pin, only used that year...I've got it on my STL 17, it's a great joint. All 5/16x14 shafts I've tried will fit the butt, but the inserts on the 1993 "13mm" shafts won't fit other non-ACME pin butts. Something about the pilot being too big and the brass insert (maybe) too shallow...don't know. I do know that all 7 of my non-Schon 5/16x14 shafts (2xJoss, 2xGEM, 2xCarolina and 1 Gulyassy SPTX) fit my Schon no problemo...The two Schon shafts I have won't fit any of the other butts but my Schon, though.

Schon Pins

Ok, I've been meaning to post this for years.

Just to let the Schon collectors know that the ACME pin has been used by Evan on occasions in modern Schons.

The Schon pictured was a special order Schon for a dealer in Kansas somewhere about 2005 or so. She liked it so much she had Evan make her a second one and that's the one I got ahold of. They are both plainjane purpleheart 6 pointers. When I got mine refinished, Evan said this and the other one were the only total purplehearts he ever made (but maybe that's just in this model) and for sure mine has the ACME pin. I would have to ask him the next time I visit the shop, but I'll guess he just used a couple he still had sitting in the bins or something. I've never seen recent models other than mine with these pins, so these may be unique to these two cues. There's not many purpleheart Schons out there, that's for sure--so for whatever reason he just decided to stick these pins on.
