A friend of mine has an older Pechauer (5+ years old) and he managed to split the shaft lengthwise using it as a break-cue with a phenolic tip. He wants me to make him a new shaft. I haven't seen the cue but I asked him to desribe the joint set-up for me. He says that the pin looks like "a bullet with threads" and that the shaft has a threaded insert in it. I will have to see it; it doesn't sound like a uni-lock but it could be. I'm guessing that the pin may be some type of proprietary Pechauer pin that I will be unlikely to find the necessary taps and inserts for. Does anybody know what Pechauer used for a pin in cues of this vintage and if the tooling/inserts are available? I'll probably just end up telling him to have Pechauer make a new shaft for him becuase the cost of tooling would be way too high to do a single repair anyway.
