I have a Wes Hunter custom cue, this cues joint pin specification is 3/8"-8, but I can't find this specification tap in all pool cue parts suppliers, can someone give me a suggestion?

Post a photo of the pin, and contact Wes Hunter


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

Mr. Hunters joint screw is very specific to his cues. It is not a radial, it is his and his alone. The best thing to do is contact him.

I agree. This is the best advice.

Wes Hunter - 04-16-2019, 12:45 PM

Hello Tim.
I'm Alton
Nice to meet you.
I am not cue maker..
I used to make Black Delrin JP's for Wes Hunter.
Alamogordo for you UFO guys

Wes gave me one of his Joint Screws and I sent that Joint Screw as a sample, to ordered/purchase a custom made Tap and Adjustable Split Die to make the JP's..

I stop making those Delrin JP's in the early 2000's.
<><><><>
You might try looking in "The MACHINIST HANDBOOK".
Under Screw Threads.
<><><><>
In Cues.. A Standard Thread might be modified ( in some way) to become "Proprietary" or, different, as desired by that cuemaker.

There are two types available on Ebay. Acme and Asian 3/8-8 taps. I bought the Asian version for my cue made in the Philippines. I don't know what the difference is OR which one you would need. They run $40ea.

Modified "V" Thread - 04-16-2019, 05:07 PM

1st..
No disrespect to anyone.

The Joint Screw is a Modified Flat Bottom 60* V Thread.
It is closer to the Wood Screw Thread Family, than the other Thread configuations.
ACME has 28* include angle threads.
Some of Bill Stroud's early cues had 5/16" x 14 ACME.


Wes' Threads are 60* flat top, Flat bottom shank (Minor Diameter).
3/8" (.375") nominal, with a .29-" Minor Diameter. ( Tom, you can measure the shank of your cue's pin for the last digit. , so, I do not disclose Wes' Screw Specs.
Or, P.M. me.. As, it is not for me to disclose Wes' Pin details.
I will tell you the measument across the Flat of the tip of the Thread.
It is best not to tell Wes' Screw Specs on an open forum, and, it is his Proprietary Joint Screw.

It does cut down on the competition to make another shaft for one of his cues.
