Holds up just fine until someone don't predrill it first, or uses an impact drill to insert the slate screws😎

Again, installers fault, but a smart installer would switch the slate screws for machine bolts, should I explain how that works?🤔😀

I would be interested in how all that works, I know what machine bolts are of course. I have used them when the slate screws were totally stripped out

It's all cosmetic, there's nothing different in the basic design.

They are both good looking tables in my opinion.

the frames are designed differently. Only 4 evelers on each of the seams in the gc6. I could install the levelers like the gc5 in about 2-3 hours.

I feel the new frame members milled to closer tolerances. I am not an engineer so I can't say one is better than the other. The 2 gc6's I recently installed went together very well and both clients are happy!

Levelers don't change the over built frame structure, the 5 and 6 are the same, and therefore still susceptible to humidity changes. And MDF is still the worst backing to install on any slate, next to particleboard!!!

Respectfully, NO they are not. The frames are not the same. It is not just the levelers.
The frame members are not the same, the way the levelers for the seams are mounted
on the cross members are different, the 4 sills are not the same, the bolt capture plates
are removable and are mounted totally different. Yes MDF sucks for slatebackers.
Glue down method after "X" amount of recovers with staples. I use wire staples (j21's) &
a hand stapler on all 6 pockets to not cause damage to the wood, well much less than
using the pneumatic stapler and crown staples. I just installed these 2 in May of this year.
Not going to argue with you RKC

Unfortunately, I do not have one on hand un assembled. I just installed those 2 in May like I said. I am very sure my description of the differences are accurate. If that is not good enough, you will just have to wait until I sell another one and I will make sure to take pics of the frame!

I am guessing you have never installed a GC6 yet. If you had: you would not be asking me for pictures!
