    Does anyone else do this to hide their staples or is it just me?

    If you're not careful you can do damage to that part of the rail. That goes for just about any part of a pool table really. I should add that I modified my staple gun so shooting through the cloth and/or doing damage to the rail is highly unlikely if not impossible. With that being said, I've...

    Brunswick.....?????

    That is NOT a Brunswick. Simply because it has no nameplate and/or factory decals. The nameplate is 100% guaranteed to be on a Brunswick Gold Crown's (1,2,3,4, & 6) headrail. They are proud of the Gold Crown line and rightfully so. The newer models being produced in China is the only negative...

    I understand what you're trying to describe. I've never seen that done either but I'm sure it works as well. I guess I just can't rationalize adding an unnecessary step with glue when you can simply move the staple placement.

    Recent Simonis 860 install by a table mechanic........Really?

    Very true. That slate does have wood backing and my method was only stapling. That is a side pocket but I can only do it that way (on side pockets) on tables with new style pocket cuts that have the corners shaved off. If it is too tight of a radius (in the side pocket) I will use a French cuff...

    Searching for honest opinions: Would you rather your pockets look like this with Simonis 860 or would you rather see a French cuff?
