    7-Ball rack

    If nothing happens here, I'll post in the "Wanted" column, but you room owners will probably be the only folks who will remember. When Hyatt "invented" 7-Ball back in about 1980, there was a company that manufactured a dedicated 7-Ball rack. I don't want one of those new wooden ones, I'm...

    Brunswick Metro

    I've read the other posts discussing the Brunswick Metro. Are there any owners here who have current experience with the table. Is there any slate sag on the sides and ends? Is the hardware up to the task? Could they be used commercially with good results or are they truly home tables? Are...
