Exclamation Schmelke sneaky joint tip................ - 01-29-2018, 03:24 PM

If you are a shaft-flipper make sure you tell them you want a .840" joint. Their standard size is around .870" and almost all after-market shafts are in the .840 range.

Just an FYI, 3/8" 10tpi is .850 at the joint.

When I order from them, this is the type of specs that I email Kim. Not sure if its how they prefer it, but for me it saves time and gets the cue built how I want it.

I was off a tad. I ordered one without specifying joint size and mine is .860(not .870). It's a 3/8x10 also.

I don't understand, how does the pin influence the joint diameter,
Or is that just a shmelke standard when using 3/8-10 ?

Unless you specify they use .860" and most after-market shafts are .840-.850. You'd hardly notice it but there might be a bit of a lip by putting a .840-.850 on a .860 butt.

The first cue I ordered from Schmelke was a sneaky, that when it arrived the joint was, I want to say .870+. When I called to inquire about why the joint was larger than the standard, I was told (IIRC) something along the lines of they try to hit the length/balance/tip size/weight without using a weight bolt. But in my experience. that sometimes ends up with a wonky sized joint, as I had ordered significantly oversized specs.

I then asked about supplying them joint specs etc, and they said no problem. So thats how Ive gone since. I have ordered 4-5 customs from them, and for the money, they simply cannot be beat by any production maker out there IMHO.
