Anniversary project - 10-10-2018, 09:36 AM

Guys

I start this thread to keep track of the progress of my coming table refurb project and also for asking a ton of questions down the road.

If you have seen some of my previous thread, you know that used to own a Anniversary 10ft snooker that I partially refinished. Iíve sold it locally and found what I was really looking for a for a while, an Anniversary 9ft pool table. As you can see, it is in a little rough shape but Iím planning to do a good refurb job (more than I did on my previous table). Here is a quick description form the ground up :

-Pedestal : They are in rough shape, there is 2 big patches on the side covering a hole and they are brown painted. On the plus side the aluminum band are in ok shape.

-Frame : This is not an Anniversary original frame. Overall itís a similar design but without the big top apron for the slate, only fixation blocks on the side. I entertain the idea of modifying it to make it more similar to the original.

-Slate : A nice set of matching Brunswick slate without the raised stripes flaw with only 1 chip outside of the playing surface. The backing board are in great shape. It looks like they did not seen more than 3-4 recovering.

-Skirt : Overall in good shape except for an easily repairable split 4-5inches long.

-Casting : In good shape except for one side casting with a broken ear.

-Rails : The top rail are rough but I should be able to make them looks good. The sub rail are not beat-up but the cushion are weird, they have fitted L77 snooker cushion on a 1-3/4 pool rail . Iíve tested them very quickly when I picked-up the table and they are surprisingly lively. For sure I will need advice about that.

That pretty much it for now, I will keep you inform of my progress and for sure I will ask a ton of questions.

Thanks in advance for contributing.

Martin
