Joss Cues ….. Where are they made?

I’m asked this question quite a bit by telephone. People that pick their cue up or have repair work done can hear the machines running in the background so they don’t ask. We have been making cues since a little before 1968. I use 1968 as our official starting date...

It’s Summertime!

Summer time …. This used to be the time all pool players dreaded. Pool seemed to come to a screeching halt. Not anymore with air conditioned pool rooms and numerous pool leagues, pool just keeps going on and on. Now is the perfect time to get your cue service work...

Joss Cues the middle years part 2

Cues the middle years part 1

In the middle 70’s we decided the old style shorty blank had lived out its time and was not a good blank going forward. Most cues were threaded together just in front of the wrap and glued with epoxy. The big problem is that is the weakest part of a shorty blank. All...

A Blog for Joss Cues

Why a blog for Joss Cues? I get in the neighborhood of 20 or 30 emails or calls every day to ask questions about the construction of a Joss Cue. I try to answer as many as I can but there just isn’t enough time in a day to answer the questions and make cues at the...
