The History of Joss by www.askabilliards.com
 

 

Joss Cues ® was born in 1968 in a two-car garage in Baltimore, the brainchild of Dan Janes and his partner. Working with one ancient manual lathe, a butcher-shop band saw, one drill press, and a single work bench, the two former road players took some of contemporary cue making’s first steps away from the traditional four-prong design, innovating the ""floating points"" concept and many others. Their unique ideas coupled with Dan’s personal relationships with the best players of the times including: Eddie Taylor, Ed Kelly, Larry Lisciotti, Luther Lassiter, Jimmy Fusco, Richie Florence and Joe Balsis, just to name a few, helped make Joss virtually an instant success. Joss has remained at the forefront of cue making in the more than three decades that have passed.

Dan bought his partners interest in Joss Cues in 1972 and continued to make cues in Baltimore. He eventually moved to a larger location and his son Stephen joined him in cue making. Dan and Stephen still work side by side in the shop while Debbie and Amanda Janes oversee the office and sales. Joss Cues is a real family effort which results in a company that cares about its product and clients. Joss pool cues make -fabulous- corporate gifts and corporate prizes.
