Exclamation POOL PROS WANTED - Need help identifying my new pool table - 11-05-2019, 09:54 PM

Hello! Thanks for clicking. I just recently acquired this pool table from a friend but have no idea what brand it is. It came with no hardware, no brand name stickers or indentations, and nothing else I could identify it by. Was hoping someone here might know a thing or two about a thing or two. Here's what I do know:

-one of the side panels reads "Serial Code S 67391"
-disassembled by a professional
-originally purchased in the late 70's or early 80's
-3 piece slate (or slateron)
-8 foot in length
-has plastic/rubber pockets
-had green felt
-all wooden frame
-may have been purchased somewhere in Colorado

I have attached pictures with some hopes that someone may recognize the craftsmanship because extensive google research and looking at every angle of this table for a brand name has left me at a dead end. Please feel free to ask any clarifying questions. Thanks to all who stop by!

That's the "Disposable" model pool table, manufacturered by "Sucker Billiards LLC". Seen them before, after selling the hardware for what they can get, they throw away what's left.

Sneetch,

Your "friend" has given you a great deal of incorrect information. In particular, the dates of manufacture are undoubtedly incorrect. What you actually have is one of the earliest prototypes of the as yet secret Diamondo Super Pro Competiton X-Factor Tournament Grandee. The give-away to the identity of this engineering marvel is the judicious use of the #2 Com, KD SYP structural components and the all new "short block" cross connecting anchor plates. Quite rare.

You, Sir, are a very fortunate man...with this one exception. This table is protected by a court ordered, binding non-disclosure agreement. Your post has exposed years of carefully guarded product R & D. Our attorneys will be contacting you post haste and forthwith.

Looks like something from Monkey Ward or Sears. At least you claim that it had a slate top. I don't see it in any pics. Is it 1/2" slate? Wait a second. I now see the name Slatron. That is impregnated wood if I remember correctly from the old Ads that Sears ran for their pool tables. It was like high end particle board. It's okay for a kid's toy table but not for playing real pool unfortunately.

Welcome to the forum. As with any online forum, you have the most passionate people for a particular topic. Pool is most of our lifelong obsessions so we tend to gravitate toward the best equipment and tables.

Although its not clear what exact table you have here, the construction and materials show that its not a top quality table. A table with these construction methods and material can frequently be picked up for a couple hundred dollars on Facebook or Craigslist. Its not uncommon to find a table like this for free if you can pick it up. Pool tables are hard to sell and have a small market. Since your table is missing the hardware, you may spend hundreds trying to track down all the pieces you need, possibly never finding them.

If you are interested in having a table, I would suggest you look on CL or Facebook and you can find a table in this "range" that is complete for 2-300 dollars. From there you can see if you enjoy the game enough to then spend a few thousand on a table that us "enthusiasts" prefer.

Ian

Kudos to you Ian for the thoughtful response.

This guy comes on here, probably new to the pool world, and excited to find out more about this table. A bunch of shitty responses is what he receives, and one from a guy whoís supposed to be promoting this game with his super glue and all worldly table mechanics knowledge.

How hard is it to just be respectful and helpful? Iíve helped total strangers on this site, for years, people Iíve never met, gone out of my way to assist with cues, contacts, whatever, and then I come on and read this crap.

Just once try to imagine it was you asking for help before you hit the send button with a snide useless remark.

Slatetron...that's something they use to market on cheap sears pool tables. It was not slate by any means...just a higher density wood.
It's not a high end table or anywhere close. When new, maybe, just maybe $600

Hey guys! Thanks to all who commented! No hard feelings at all I got some good laughs and good information. With that being said, I know this table is nothing near tournament quality, however for me and my buddies on the weekend to shoot around I think this may just work if i can get it assembled (or until I can save up for a nice table).

SO would a trip to Home Depot or Lowes for some bolts and screws get this table play-ready or would my time and effort be better spent looking into another table. I was going to buy one for the house here soon anyways but will probably re-locating in the next year or so.....so that $200-$300 range was what I would've spent on a table that I may not get to take with me when I move.

Thanks for any additional help!
