I love the cue.

In fact, my wife almost bought me that cue a while back. LOL!

Glad you posted it in this thread. I dig this thread staying alive.

I am surprised that whoever refinished that cue was able to save the original wrap. Nice job. That's why I didn't have it refinished.

No surprise to me. With many of these vintage cues, the best restorations are the ones done that save the wrap. Many times, that wrap is Cortland, Penn, or the good days of Blue Mountain. And many times, there's no need to replace it.

All the best,
WW

Yup if blue magic can get soaked blood, grass, wine and dirt stains Im pretty sure removing dirt and oil from linen with lesser methods wouldnt be extremely difficult....

Remember the old linen was made from longer strands of flax and is much stronger generally speaking than what is offered today and acceptable for use in cues.

Ive been speaking to my mother whos knowledge of fabric, yarn, thread is up there with say what RKC knows about tables lol. Shes always been interested in trying to replicate it but all I have is data no piece of the no 9 to go off of and shes done such things for vintage remakes of old yarns and such that became unavailable/extinct.....spins and all that my father and I made most of her jigs for such work.

If someone has any and would be willing to spare merely say 6 that would be more than sufficient to begin to tinker with it.

Absolutely. My preferred method is a mild water with bleach solution, very sparingly, taking a lot of time with damp wash cloth, never soaking the wrap, and doing it several times before a good press. Turns years-old dirty wrap into brand new, if you have the patience.

All the best,
WW

Yep, where is Ron Pepeil when we need him. Roasting chickens... But, I will say this, elbow grease probably does it better than a Ronco machine. I've done the elbow grease. But, anything is possible.... I'm sure operators are standing by...

All the best,
WW

Just picked this up recently...received it today. 68-72 block letter Joss. 2 original shafts with ivory ferrules. Absolutely immaculate....not a scratch or mark on it. I am so happy...been wanting one of these for years and I finally got it.
My regular shooter is a 95 pre-sierial number. I recently had it restored by Dan at Joss because it hit the floor and received a bent pin and some major chunks out of it.
Along with the Joss Thor hammer break I got recently as well I am pretty happy with my set up. I will get out tomorrow to spend some time at the table with it. Thanks to everybody else that posted so many beautiful cues.

I've always thought the cues of the 70s, especially Joss, were the best. This is no exception. You have to have a couple and play with them to know.

All the best,
