    Perimeter vs Lite Systems

    Before perimeter lights became the rage I built this with 3 2x2 led panels (home depot - about $35 each) and a minimalist frame of walnut plywood that goes with my table. Very happy with it.

    Perimeter vs Lite Systems

    These sure look a lot like the Perimeter lights. Think they're rebranding and selling these at an itty bitty profit?

    Which Ball Cleaning Machine is the best in the market today?

    They're just rebranded Chinese machines. A little Google will find a lot of them on AliBaba, Amazon, etc. for dirt cheap. And their lights sure look like these...

    Current State of the Art Pool Table Lighting?

    $51 shipping seems pretty good. This MAY be what Perimeter Lighting rebrands/resells (for a LOT more), pictures in Alibaba are the same as on their web site. I'm not recommending, this is just what I ran across on the web.

    Throw vs Cut

    Let's say you have a longish, almost straight shot, just a few degrees off, object ball about mid way between the cue ball and the pocket. Do you prefer to shoot a slight cut or aim straight-in and use a little left or right to throw the object ball? I know there's a lot of other variables...

    "Gold Crown" Ball Polisher

    Not exactly sure what you mean by off axis, but the platter on the machine in the video is purposely off center with the outside rim to get some multi-axis rotation on the balls. At least I think it does. Nice find on the 450RPM motor! Beautiful machine, my hat's off to you sir!

    Which Ball Cleaning Machine is the best in the market today?

    There's some legal loopholes these Chinese companies use to avoid paying any import duties/taxes so you see these amazing prices (in addition to the slave labor and shoddy manufacturing). I heard this morning that congress is looking into closing some of these loopholes and better protect US...

    Which Ball Cleaning Machine is the best in the market today?

    I almost feel like not bothering with cleaning my balls. After many hours of home practice with nicely cleaned balls I get to the pool room and their often nasty balls just don't play the same. By the time I adjust to them I'm done for the night. I should probably stop cleaning my home table...

    "Gold Crown" Ball Polisher

    A direct drive on the platter would certainly simplify the machine. But a 'dimmer' switch won't slow down a large enough AC motor and it would be dangerously fast if you don't slow it down. You could possibly use a variable frequency drive (VFD) that controls the frequency of the power...

    Apps for measuring shot angles on a real pool table or by simulations??

    This is a Java app (a .jar file) I developed many years ago, I also worked on the QMD stroke training device and it's software. This little app will run on Windows that has Java installed (most Windows machines have Java on them, if not it's available for free). PM me your email and I'll see...

    Apps for measuring shot angles on a real pool table or by simulations??

    To use this little Java app you drag/drop the cue and object ball to where you want them on the table and click the pocket you're shooting at. The app will then show you all the details about the shot as you see on this example. Is this what you're after?

    BHE vs FHE

    maybe someone pointed this out already somewhere in all these posts... Assuming BHE, a 60" cue and a 6" bridge: To move your tip over 0.5" you need to move your back hand over about 4.5", the backhand moves over about 9 times the amount you want to move your tip.

    BHE vs FHE

    Intuitively I think the slightly greater angle the cue strikes the ball with BHE would impart more spin.

    BHE vs FHE

    I was trying to visualize the effects of BHE vs FHE so I made this somewhat scale drawing. With FHE the bridge was moved and the butt unmoved to hit a spot on the cue ball about 1/2" off center. For BHE the bridge stayed the same and the butt was moved over so the same spot on the cue ball was...
