Replace a Schmelke Joint With 3/8-10? - 11-12-2019, 06:17 PM

Can a Schmelke Brass Joint be replaced with a normal pin?

Is it worth the cost?

Accept for the ugliness.....Does the Brass Joint play any different from a pin?

Cost effective?
Well, that depends on how you feel about the cue. The joint on the butt is held on by a standard 5/8x18 thread. That's the easy part.
It will play different. Weight distribution will be different. Blending a different finish than what Schmelke uses could be a pain. If you really want the change, Ask Schmelke first because of finish alone.
Or....
You could leave the joint as is and machine it flat faced and install a G10 or Aluminum 3/8x10.


Best Wishes

What Mike said. I'd also add, for the cost you are going to put into the cue changing the joint, you are well on your way to the cost of a new cue from Schmelke. And they have 3/8-10 as a joint option now. So if you're not hung up on this cue for sentimental reasons, call Schmelke and get a new one made.
