The GC2 is debatable, but yes, with the exception to flush with the outside of the trim, as in adjustable play in the casting mount, and the effect on the pocket openings.

I waited patiently for a couple of years for RKC to make it to me in CT; that was a few years ago. He turned my GC1 "Frankentable" into a real Dapper Dan.

And to give an idea of what kind of heart this guy has, just a couple months after my table was Cobracized to absolute perfection an effing leak under my kitchen sink made it's way down to my basement rec room and, of course, soaked the table.

I called Glen for advice, he was nearly 500 miles away in VA. His response was, "I'll come back up there on Tuesday to take care of it." And he did!

Thanks for fixing me up, Glen, and then re-fixing me up.

best,
brian kc

Greg,

Is there an upgrade/option - or even something new - that allows for flush mounted pockets on the GC1? I don't mind the plastic sticking up, but if there was an alternative, I might consider it.

Thanks!

Sadly my GC4 castings look like speed bumps.

Glen, please let me know if you ever make it thru Houston. I would love to have the castings made flush on my GC II.

Flushing out the castings can be done very easily by just using plastic shims. But like Glen said, they will need to be redone if they are ever taken off. Sounds like he has a way to do it which is more permanent. When I redo my table next time I will install the shims permanently.

Nice!

New member checking in from the Boise area. Iím kicking myself for not calling to see when you would be coming through town. I found a GC1 for $800 in Blackfoot last month and brought it over. Itís sitting in my garage awaiting installation next week, and the shop has my rails to install the cloth.

Itís no beauty queen with Formica and belt buckle wear, but GC1s at that price point donít pop up too often around here. The cushions seem ok, and it doesnít appear to be a mutt from several tables.
