Mr. Ken Peters' JOSSWEST "Gambler" Cue, by Bill Stroud.
Ken is a big fan of Bill Stroud Cues.
So are many others.
I, too, love Bill Stroud's works.
If you followed Bill's time in the pool world, you will see that he is the total package.
Bill plays, creates, and, inovates. :) all, with a passion.

And, I love making Cue Caps for Josswest Cues..
In fact, my 1st. cue was a 8 Point Josswest. :thumbup:
And, back then, I did not know anything about Pool cues..
Thank You Ken Peters and Bill Stroud.
It is an honor to be on top of your cues. :)

Thanks for viewing.. :)

Photo of dice on the butt, the 6-1

Is the only example I have ever seen other than my j.w.
On the 4 panels it has 1-1, 1-2, 2-2, 2-1.

I’m not sure this is the right place to request this, but here’s my story. ,
I bought a Joss West cue around the year 1978 in Chicago and I still have it. During the early 1980’s, an old man who who was working behind the counter at Chris’ Billiards asked to see my cue. I foolishly handed it to him and he immediately put it on a lathe buffer to remove a speck he saw on the butt end. He not only sanded off the finish but he took off the JW logo on the white butt end which he thought was a speck. I sent it away to Bill Stroud and got the cue refinished with a leather wrap and asked him to put his logo back on. He sent it back to me refinished but did not re-logo the cue. Is there any way I could get the JW logo put back on my cue. This has been haunting me for forty years. I would be forever grateful.

Tom,

I will be happy to engrave your cue.

However I will need to order a graver as I gave all my small tools away.

Email me at bill@josswest.net and I will let you know when I receive the graver.
