Most Common Pool Cue Joint Pin Size?

Most Common Pool Cue Joint Pin Size?

Just wondering what would be the most common joint pin sizes? I've made some joint protectors for my cues which are 5/16-18.

I have a set of purpleheart and one of maple. If I ever wanted to make some to sell, which would be the most common types?

I know of 3/8-10, 3/8-11, 5/16-14, 5/16-18, radial pins. Then of course some are piloted and some flat-faced, but if I made just 3 or 4 types, which should they be?

    I would not worry about flat face vs piloted, if you made all of the shaft joint protectors with a recess inside to accommodate a brass insert.

    I did not include 3/8-11 even though I have a cue with that pin, and have been trying to find a nice set of JP's for it. It seems to me not as mainstream as the others listed.

    Lets see some pics of your JP's!

    Thanks for your response. You are right, I could just make them all recessed to fit both. As far as pics go, I don't have a digital camera so one of these days I'll have to go buy one.

    They are just plain as can be for now, but I figured before I go out and buy more taps I should figure out which are priority. I don't have the tools to do anything great, but its fun to try and learn new things.

    Someday I hope to get into building cues and stuff, but till I can do that I will play around with easier things like this in my spare time.
