    FargoRate for One Pocket?

    This is a myth made up by lesser players who cant consistently run balls. They migrate to a game where running balls is not the main part of the game. Then start telling people the better watch out because I understand "moving" lol I have seen a lot of low level players act like they are...

    Replacement pockets for a national pool table

    I had a National that was very close to a Gold Crown. A set of Gold Crown or Anniversary pocket castings and pockets may not be too hard to retrofit. Not sure what model you have but mine could have been retrofitted with little trouble. I took mine to the dump!

    Diamond slate shelf and radius

    Does anybody have the geometry for Diamond slate? I am going to experiment with extending my slate shelves but don't know the actual shape of the corners and sides. I read from a trusted source that the corner shelf should be 60% of the ball which is no problem but what radius is the curvature...

    roll call...only those that have been here 10+ years.

    I had an account on the original forum back when it was just for Arizona. I made an account and put up a wanted add for a pool table. Must have been late 90s or early 2000s. I think all the inactive users were pruged or nobody was transfered to the new website when it went up. IIRC So who is...

    Rail angles, cushions, 10 foot anniversary

    I estimate there are no more than seven 10 foot tables in the entire state of Alaska. Two billiard and 5 snooker that I know of. Ive been looking for ten years. I will do whatever modifications it takes to convert to a pool table. This table has already been converted. I am going to repair the...

    Rail angles, cushions, 10 foot anniversary

    I would love to send the rails out but the long rail is one piece and I am in Alaska. Shipping is ridiculous and difficult. Almost impossible to get a table shipped here too. I tried so many times... I doubt there is a local guy I would trust to do a better rail job than I could. I have every...

    Rail angles, cushions, 10 foot anniversary

    I have a 10 foot Brunswick Anniversary. I am in the process of determining what I can do to maximize playability. Here are some specs - Cushion nose height about 1-9/16 to 1-5/8. Too high. Rail cushion glue surface angle is 27 degrees. Not even close to 23.5. Playing surface is exactly 56"...
