We received word from cuemaker Dan Janes (Joss Cues) that legendary cuemaker Tim Scruggs passed away on June 18, 2015.
Scruggs, maker of the popular Black Boar Cues, began his career as a machinist. He went to work for Dan Janes at Joss Cues in 1972, and worked there until 1978. He then went out on his own, partnering with Bob Fry.
