View Full Version : Problem: I broke my joint screw. Can anyone adv?

I snapped the screw stud on my shaft. A machinist told me he can't tell how it's in...He may break the wood to get it out. I have never taken one apart. Is it epoxied into the wood? Should I apply heat and turn out? There is about a quater of an inch left sticking out. Any knowledge on this here?

Thank You

Not quite clear on what you mean. It sounds as if the pin on your cue is in the shaft, rather than in the butt. Unless it's a Robinson, an antique, or a Layani it most likely is an Import (Taiwanese) and probably will cost more to fix it than to replace it. I may be totally off-base with this assumption, if so, please give us more info. If it is a quality cue, go to a cuemaker, not a machinist.
