    Missing Bumper on a Bumper Pool Table

    Hi guys, Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I bought an old bumper pool table and it is missing one of the rubber rings that goes around the bumper. I'm not sure where to find a replacement for it. The rubber ring has an I.D. of 1 7/16", O.D. of 2 1/8" Thanks,

    Info on a cue

    Found this ad on my local kijiji today. When I read the title of the ad I thought the seller made a type-o but it actually is a 5-piece cue. Anyone have any info on this thing? Pretty interesting to say the least.
