Could you be any more vague? Got any pics of cue in question?

If you Google "ADAM carom cue" and click "Images" you see a lot that have metal joint screws. No way to tell what year as finding ADAM catalog info is basically impossible.

Sorry, pics did not post. Will try that, again.

BTW, the metal pins are at base of shaft like the full wood pins you see when you google as suggested above

I've never seen an ADAM billiard cue with metal screw on the shaft. You might post this in the "Carom" section.

I acquired a lot of Adam cues in the early 90s...they were made in the early 80s....
...they were all snooker cues...Dennis Taylor won a title with one....
...about sis hundred of them had the oversize pin in the shaft....
....about 200 of them were aluminum...the rest were wood pins.

So Adam did use that technology...although I had no carom cues from them.

Metal pin shaft is common on snooker cues but almost unheard of on carom cues.

Maybe one of those entire screw comes out with a stuck shaft jobs?

If pin was stuck, it happened twice to two cues bought separately.

As far as being a snooker cue, the ferrules are over an inch long and not metal.

See if pic attaches this time.

IMO, those look to have been changed from wood to a metal pin. Wood pin could have broken and owner switched to what looks to be brass. Never seen an ADAM carom cue with pins like that. I could be wrong but that's what i think happened here.

The closer i look the more i think i'm on target. Those pins don't match each other. Someone cut off the wood screws and re-placed with these. Maybe wanted more forward balance or one broke and both were switched.

They would have had to plug and tap the butt, too, right? I imagine the wood screw would have been much thicker.

No, they just would have had to match the internal threads on the butt. Its possible a plug/re-tap was done but those threads look coarse enough to me. If one had broken off they would just back it out.

I don’t know about this thing, those ferrules aren’t right for a billiard cue.

Yeah, but it would be like screwing into the Grand Canyon, because the wood pins must be near twice the diameter of what’s shown.
