Hire An Experienced Professional Pool Table Mechanic

My recommendation is to hire an experienced pool table mechanic. If you do otherwise, you are only taking chances. First quality used tables (Gold Crowns for example) don't fetch a lot of money, so...

I realize it varies by geographic location but in general there are usually many Gold Crowns available and sometimes under $1,000. A percentage of those available are Gold Crown I's and II's.

That may work for some but I would never chance it.

Every cue maker I admire and consider among my favorites have made cue designs I would never own.

Second Catalog Model F
