Glen gets tired of people making suggestions as how to change pool tables for tbe better....that have about as much knowledge as the designers of the pool tables. If they had to work on their own design or ideas....it would have a different design that's for sure.

Glen don't care if people think he's a great pool table mechanic, all they have to do is point out someone better....fact!

Glen don't need anyone to defend him, he lets his work speak for itself, and would challenge anyone to do better!

The give away is that since you created your screen name, Jan 2017, I've only had about 300 posts, and very few posts about my work, so how is it that you think you know me so well as to make the statements you just posted.....no, you've been banned before and this is a new screen name because you have to hide who you are so you can get back on AZB.....what a joke!!

I have no doubt in my mind that Glen is a table expert and have never suggested otherwise.

And this is not a question of using his expertise or not.
It's not a question of anyone's expertise.

Its basically an open forum discussion of what people think about new features or design elements, not existing "problems" with tables or table makers.

This reminds me of those people who say they hate drama... not realizing that the only people who continually deal with drama in their lives are the ones who create it.

How about having some kind of built-in grippers that keep the cloth under tension? Like a hundred vise-grips on bungee cords but designed for the purpose. No glue, no staples except maybe around the pockets.

Glenn, just curious have you ever worked on one of those "gyro" self leveling systems for pool tables on cruise ships? How much do those systems cost ( ballpark )?

I do like the idea of having an easy way to be able to "re-tighten" the cloth at any given time. Or that it could keep itself under the same amount of tension constantly over time.

In case anyone hasn't seen this before, here's a video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DNGjGH-IB8

With the motion and the pink cloth, I'm about to ....

I looked into being an instructor/tournament director on one of those ships. The deal is that you get to be on the ship and show people how to play pool and only have to pay $50/day for your food. You have to get yourself to/from the port.

As for the cost of the table, I think it's going to be pretty high. Only the largest class of cruise ships have them. I'm guessing $100k.

It appears the CB is bigger and heavier than the OBs, kind of like the old coin-ops. I assume maybe it needs to be bigger and heavier, so as not to roll off as bad. It still looks like the CB is rolling off quite a bit as it slows down.

With a little more googling, it seems that these are only on "Radiance" class ships in the Royal Caribbean line. Maybe they've gotten rid of the pink cloth: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruis...-do/pool-table

An on-line comment says "over $100k" about the price.

I myself am not there yet with the spare time and materials to try it out, however using
two sided tape coupled with the rails being end bolted seems like plenty of hold for road trips/ setup,
for the gaming purposes coming up.

.
Maybe industrial strength Velcro sewn on the far edges of the cloth & stapled to the slate backing.
Rails with easy accessible bolt systems. Loosen the bolts... stretch the cloth... press down Velcro.

.

Recognize a 1/2 ball 30 degree cut, and the 1/8 ball angles.
Paralysis by aiming analysis happens by thinking too much.

To play at top speed.. You must own the stop shot line.
