Gold Crown I - Cover Slate Bolt Holes? - 04-27-2020, 08:09 PM

Hello, I have owned a Gold Crown I for nearly 20 years. In the past, when I covered my own table, I always filled the bolt holes. It has been disassembled for the last 5+ year and I have an outfit finally coming out to cover it this week. Guy says there is no need to cover the bolt holes. I ask what will happen if I slam a ball into the cushion where the bolt hole is located. He said no worries, they set back far enough.

What would you do, put on a couple of rails before they cover the table, and push a ball into the rail to see if it's true or just insists that they cover the holes? The guy might be right, but my gut tells me that every table is different.

(I am sure this has been discussed before, but I searched and couldn't find anything)

What do you think?

I also have a GCI, I did not fill the slate holes under the cushion that run parallel with the rail. Cloth has been on 5 or 6 years so far, in fact its due for new cloth and I have had no problems.

They do not need to be filled.

I have never heard of anyone filling those holes. Those holes would never come into play unless a crazy amount of the subrail was cut off by some hack, and maybe the wrong profile cushion installed, and in that case the fix would not be filling those holes, that deficiency would necessitate a subrail overhaul/recalibration. I almost had this exact same scenario on my Anniversary before I had the original rails overhauled by Jack Zimmerman. Somewhere in it's lifespan someone recut the subrail bevel to accommodate the new K-55 rubber, but later on I suppose someone else made the mistake of putting K-66 profile on them, which further reduced the depth of the subrail. Another good reason that simply recutting subrail bevel angles is not a good idea, not to mention what it does to other aspects of the table, like pocket shelves and playfield specs.
