Radial pin
The new Radial Pin (tm) has a longer shoulder to help locate the pin into the center of the hole for more accurate installation. It is now Arnot's Favorite pin.

Joint Screws

The brass insert-head pilots into the butt when the shaft is joined to the butt. It looks neat, but I do not think it performs any real purpose. 5/16 - 14 with brass insert is commonly used with a piloted joint.

There are many variations of joint pins (screws) available for your cue.

Arnot uses only screws that are commonly available off the shelf because he does not feel that it is fair to the customer to be held captive by uncommon or proprietary joint systems.

If a customer needs a new shaft he should be able to get it from any cuemaker.

The best screw in Arnot's humble opinion is the 3/8 Radial (TM) Pin Joint Screw because of its increased length and precision. It is incredibly accurate (within .005) and highly polished. It is now available in Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel and now at Arnot's insistence -- Titanium. It is plain and simply the very best in the world.

In June 1999 Arnot discontinued use of the 5/16-14, 5/16-18 and the 3/8-10 joint screws in his custom cues because the Uni-Loc® Quick Release Pin and the Radial Pin are made with such precision.

This the most commonly used joint application today. 5/16 - 18 with brass insert is commonly used with a flat-faced joint.

Some people feel that the wood threads wear out over time. If the threads are cut properly, this is not the case. This is a proven joint. 3/8 - 10 is usually screwed directly into threads cut into the shaft.

This Titanium joint-screw is installed where the weight & balance of the cue necessitate its use. 3/8 - 10 Titanium is also screwed directly into threads cut into the shaft.

Available in stainless steel, titanium, and gold plated stainless steel. It is a very fine assembly, requiring accuracy of 2-thousandths of an inch. Uni-Lock quick release screw and brass insert join the butt & shaft in 1.5 turns.

 

We do not sell joint screws.
