    You too can own Paul Newman's Balabushka...

    That's THE Rambow cue Willie ran 526 with. When I was in Vegas for the Mosconi Cup a few years back, I had the good fortune to attend a private tour of the Denny Glenn collection. I got to hold/see many, many cues from champions of all eras.

    US Open 9-Ball, 2023, Atlantic City, Sep 25-30

    It's far from automatic. If it was, everyone would be doing it every break.

    And he made the 1B in the side on 11 straight breaks.

    That was the most dominating Race to 11 I've ever seen. Incredible.

    Removing GC2 Formica On Rails

    Have you played on a Gold Crown? The curve is very slight. Laminate can most certainly adhere to the curvature so long as a quality adhesive is used.

    Fully restored GC3 for $5K or brand new Diamond Pro-Am for $11K. ???

    I wouldn't pay $5K for a Gold Crown III. It's the least desirable of the lineup.

    Removing GC2 Formica On Rails

    Gold Crown rails are poplar, not particle board.

    Dimond ball cleaner RPM

    It most certainly is possible to build a polisher that functions like a Diamond. I built mine in the Gold Crown aesthetic using the exact same parts and engineering that went into a Diamond so the balls spiral. It wasn't cheap, but I wanted a Gold Crown Polisher that functioned like a Diamond...

    Those all sound great. I do like the idea of a spring loaded staring gate to get consistent release position and velocity. This would most likely add to the complexity of the design, though.

    Dimond ball cleaner RPM

    Table time is table time, regardless of who is playing. Even after an hour of play and handling, the balls are dirty with pocket smudges, collision marks and oil from your hands. If the table is not clean, the balls are also picking up chalk residue. I prefer to play with clean equipment at...

    Dimond ball cleaner RPM

    Unless the platter is offset, the balls will only spin on one axis. It's possible the collisions change the axis but it's not ideal. Aesthetics aside, my old bucket polisher most likely did as good a job as that unit.

    If you need an unbiased 3rd party to provide a review, I'd be happy to do so.

    Dimond ball cleaner RPM

    Far from a Diamond Knockoff. From a quick look, I see two problems right off the bat: 1) The balls don't spiral and 2) The balls are colliding with one another during the cycle which can cause white friction marks. From the look and sound of it, he's running an automotive orbital buffer and is...

    Dimond ball cleaner RPM

    The motor's rated RPM is 1,725. The polisher runs a 4:1 reduction putting the RPM of the platter at 431.25.
