    Brunswick Pockets

    If it’s a Gold Crown just remove the ball return pockets and replace them with drop pockets. (Then send me the ball return setup 😀)

    What type of Beeswax for slate joint sealing?

    Personal experience reinforces the idea that beeswax is not a great solution for you slate seams. Caused several issues on my table (table in a garage in so cal). so unless this will be stored in a climate controlled environment year round - stay away. Why not use bond, or I’ve seen that rock...

    Cue Extension woes

    Dear collective wisdom of AZB: I purchased a cue extension for my Pechauer cue. Bought it directly from Pechauer. Great extension, if a bit pricey. HOWEVER 97% of the time I go to remove the extension after use, it takes the plug with it. Besides using epoxy to put it in there permanently...

    Diamond Ball Polisher replacement parts - Help

    Just received a new refresh kit for a Diamond ball polisher. Strangely ordered from (Seyberts but received directly from Diamond). Anyone with experience replacing the parts on the polisher? What kind of glue is used to attach the bottom panel and the inside strip? Will I need to disassemble...

    Gold Crown Barn Find

    I've taken to calling it my Gold Crown I parts kit. Rexus was kind enough to come over this weekend and help me attach the skirts to the aprons. Progress I suppose. But the waiting is killing me.

    Referee/Rules Question

    BCAPL 8 Ball During our league play I was asked to referee a shot - by the shooter. There was a cluster of balls against the rail and he had to kick at his ball for a legal hit. He said “can you watch the hit on the 10 ball”? His opponent said nothing. Well that ten ball sure looked like it...

    Gold Crown Barn Find

    Huge shout out to my bro who spent his Saturday getting my stuff painted. The difference a pro makes: LOOK! Got to let it set some, then will build the base and place the slates on. Then it's a matter of waiting for the mechanic. I may cry.

    Gold Crown Barn Find

    Here you go GreenDean. I worked each rail for 3-4 minutes, 3 dabs on the buffing pad. Then wiped down with a microfibre cloth - all per Rexus. As you can see worked great. Used a Griots random orbital polisher with an orange buffing pad and this:

    Thanks to some help from Rexus I was able to pull this off using a buffer and some polishing compound (to say I'm thrilled would be putting it lightly): Before A: After A: Before B: After B:

    Gold Crown Barn Find

    I have the older brother of Rexus' table. Thrilled with the find. Can't wait to have it all put together. The attached pics will answer some of the questions. Looks like the feet on mine (adjustable) were marked 1963! You can see mine was redone a few more times than Rexus', but still amazing...
