I have it in PDF also, so I can send it in either format.

Hey Glenn, Jack from Brooklyn. The Diamond table we got is just the best, but I have a question. I know you are talking about leveling a slate in a table being built, but let me ask about our table.

After installing the table, Andy was using a level that was only about a foot long, but he showed us how putting a dollar bill under the level on the table surface caused it to read as not level and then by just sliding the bill out the reading returned to level.

I think he was using a Starrett level, but am not sure; do you know what he was using?

Yes, it was a Starrett level. If you're looking to buy one, the 8 inch is around $115.00. Harbor Freight carries them I believe.

Glen

What would you say to buying a used 18" or a used 199 for about $100?

We are talking in two different strings Glen, so I am going to ask this in both. Are you saying that the 8 inch is better suited for a pool table than any of the longer Starretts?

Yes, the longer the level, the more it averages the reading of the slate, meaning the less transparent the highs and lows of the slate, or the hills and valleys if you will. To long, and the level works like a bridge over a swayback slate, or rocks on a high spot.
