During the lockdown I wasn't feeling like playing as much, without matches or tournaments to motivate me. So I set out to use the time to get better left handed. To that end, I installed a speed...

Thanks.
The Joss pin is indeed about .312". The lower pin in my photo is Schon, and it's about .305".
Both of the shaft joint inserts are brass.

Fix threads, or replace the pin?

I bought a Joss a few months ago. My daily SS360 shaft which fits fine on my Schon and other 5/16-14s, was difficult to thread on to this Joss. Not bad, about as snug as a United joint, I guess....

I split my time between

c) 4 1/4" GCs that I'm pretty sure...

If you can, reasonably consistently, pocket 5 balls in a turn, you're a SL5. If you regularly run-out an 8-ball rack, you're a SL7, or a 9-ball rack, SL9.

Broken, or otherwise ruined. Just the joint needs to be decent.

Silver ring, usual Schon pilot, their standard ~.8415" joint diameter.
Stitch ring is fine too, if that's all I can find.

WTB: Schon STL-1 Tulipwood

Looking for a Schon STL-1 Tulipwood.

Used okay, even a little beat up. Just needs to be straight, with a good pin.

I don't need a shaft.

Thanks for looking.
