I am!! cleaning up after the storm last night south of Wichita Falls. Lots of rain and wind.

Wonder how much they got at the farm?? This storm came out of Lubbock, should have crossed the Hun Bunch... fullclip

I'm still here, dang it!

I'm really worried that some of them will succumb to the blue water.

I am in town. I just did a little plumbing in the backyard. I finally hooked up the pool's auto-filler. I had told them not to install it a few years ago, when the pool was put in, because I didn't like the method.

It is my birthday this weekend and I am having BBQ/pool^2/hot-tub party (small gathering) tomorrow night. (last year had 65 people show up - that was too big) I have a pool table too.

What kind?
They are so easy to setup, but sometimes you need an extra hand. Let me know if you need help, I am just here in McKinney - not to far from Frisco.

I'm around, had some work done on my back. Went to the FtW gun show and then down to Killen for some shopping. Staying close to home the rest of the weekend.

1940's Brunswick pool table. Full 1" slate on a 4x8 table. One heavy sob...but got it back together....I have somebody coming Wed to re-felt, and level the table.

Thanks for the offer though.

I'm home. My brother came into town (Fort Worth) and we took him to Edelweiss. Fun times!

(Also "HI! I'm a newbie here")

I re-felted mine to electric blue "heavy". SWEET LOOKING!!! The heavier the felt, the slower the ball.

1" slate?? Damn that is heavy. Don't break it!
Supposedly the 1" slate cold bow over time (don't know why), but I guess since it is 1940s.....it doesn't really matter.
I really think ful-slate is superior but the billiard world of today thinks 3 piece "Italian slate" is more "flat". I call BS on them though. If it is more flat then why do they putty the cracks?

I got my table from my dad, who bought it for $1k from a priest, who won it off a game show.

The installer (it was free through my dad's employer, hehe) offered me $600 for a 15yr old table which looks like the $2000 Oak Gibraltar. (they are Olhousen) By the time the guy was through assembling it, he ended up offering me $2700 for it. He then told me it was rare. It origninally came with goldish brown felt.

Frisco -
When they re-felt, have them check your bumpers to see if they are glued on really good. Mine were replaced and one spot has a "fart" when the ball hits (not enough glue, or kids were pushing on them at one time). But I am too lazy to tear down that rail just for that.

When they relevel the table, let me know how they do it. My installer said all they do is measure with a 4' level, then one guy pushes up the table by the base platform, and the other one inserts coaster-sized shims under the feet. (Never lift or sit on the rails because it can break the rail or the slate, and according to my installer, the rails are the hardest to replace even though they are usually standard/common amongst most other tables in the lineup.)
If it were a Vegas game table, it would have to have a level mechanism built into the table for easy adjustment.
