Unknown pawn shop find - 08-06-2018, 09:17 AM

.832 5/16-18 piloted joint. 1.260 butt diameter. 28 1/2” long. No original shaft. It came with a non original shaft. It had a linen wrap in rough condition which I removed. I thought it possibly might be a full splice but it isn’t. I’m going to refinish and make a new shaft with matching ring work.

Any ideas on the maker?

1.6” Delrin buttcap with .630 tenon.

If it's a piloted 5/16 by 18 joint pin, I'd be more quick to suggest a Joss (When Dan and Bill were together), rather than a JossWest, or Tim Scruggs, for that matter. Joss used the 5/16 by 18 in the early days. This, of course, does not eliminate some others.

All the best,
WW

You sure that 18 thread? Looks a little wide threaded but could use a better pic.

Real nice find whatever it ends up being

Are those engraved initials just above where the black and brown boxes meet?

Itís a 5/16-18 pin.

There are no initials anywhere, the finish is in rough shape which may be what youíre seeing.

I donít know how to do a member search so if anyone wants to PM Bill Stroud go ahead, thanks.

I paid $20.

Once you get that yellowed finish off , those veneers are going to look great. I hope you find out who made it.

You can PM an offer but realistically it needs a total refinish with new shafts. When I get done with it it will be pristine. And ready for a new life at hitting the balls.

I highly doubt it is a Joss. Construction looks all wrong. And Joss rarely used metal rings.

Butt cap looks like plastic, maybe ABS, not delrin. Can we get a better pic of that? If delrin, it would be held on by the weight bolt most likely. Can we get a pic of that?

Is that phenolic between the handle and the forearm?

Darn nice find. Hope we can figure it out.

Joss rarely used metal rings, correct. But in that rare occasion, they used aluminum, which this appears to be.

Where do you see a butt cap in the pictures? I don't see one.

It was a pretty wild guess, but I don't know others who did piloted 5/16 X 18 joint pins. Also, the space between the points at where the wrap would be is exactly where Joss would have done them. They usually didn't quite come together closely.

This is a good one, I have to admit. As I said, it doesn't eliminate others.

All the best,
WW

Buttcap is held on by a Phillips screw into the tenon, not the usual machine thread screw into the weight bolt. Iím guessing on it being Delrin, itís fairly dirty and I havenít cleaned it up yet.

Butt cap sitting next to cue in third pic. Scroll right to see it.

Also, never saw a butt cap tenon like that on a Joss.
