    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    You associate looks of something to its actual ability to function and the skills of the user? Good on you, to post something like that when you obviously have no idea what you are actually typing! LOL You keep being you, and working on the 'hobbies' you enjoy!

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    With the current cue in question, the expectations that were communicated, were only that I'm really looking for "sharp and even points"! So when I saw pictures and this wasn't the case I was surprised, hence why I asked the question in the forum. I wanted to learn as well as determine if there...

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    I find it so amusing that hoping for and the esthetics of something are found to be 'nit picky'. Just goes to show that different people, have different standards. As for the "bicker over", I have and will not argue over what I have asked about in this thread. I was simply looking for...

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    Expectations are not really a number for me, but more so that in a picture of the forearm or at arms length the difference in length isn't the first thing you notice. If it had to be a number, I would expect not more out of line than 0.125"!

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    Thank you for providing feedback that actually has value. My post was intended to gain insight, to see if what I was expecting was too much. As I didn't want to be unfair to the maker with my expectations and go back to them with something unrealistic. Since posting my question, I have...

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    Thanks for your .02! Now do you have any actual feedback that my post is looking for? Since I am trying to educate myself and to know if there is a 'standard' that should be expected for my next purchase? - Is it expected when building cues that points & veneers should be equal? - Is it...

    Points / Veneers: Customer being to picky?

    When looking at points on a cue, including veneers within the points, I prefer/expect that all should be equal across the cue. Not being a cue maker myself, I do not know if this is also expected during the build process by the maker or how hard it is to make happen. I'm trying to determine...

    GC IV Side Pocket Issue

    Hello, I have a Gold Crown IV that kicks balls out of the side pockets if not hit dead center and at slower speed. I believe the issue is that the rails were lengthened causing the pocket rubber to push out, causing the balls to spit out. I'm curious of the recommended solution to this...

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Well just got back from looking at the table and pretty sure it is not a GC3 but a GC4. There is no Brunswick emblem on the rail top, it has flush pockets and what look to be levelers under the table for the slate. I went ahead with the purchase and now will just arrange somebody to dismantle it...

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Unfortunately all I know about it from the pictures and what was in the add is that the table was in a pool hall and now private residence. Also they claim it was recently refinished with new rubber and cloth. There isn't a lot of options around here right now for used Gold Crowns or Diamonds...

    Purchasing a used Gold Crown, what to look for?

    Hello, looking for advice on what to look for to ensure a table is in good condition..slate, legs, apron, etc. I have made an offer on the table and when I go and look at it need to know if its worth the money ($2300) or not. I'm not sure of the age but guessing it is either a Gold Crown 2 or 3.
