They are nothing like Snooker bends. As I do recognize that the no fold method distorts the side a lil, it sure does look clean! Was fun learning how to do it.

Don’t kid yourself, feather strip rails can also be done in the no fold method. Would you like to see a pic of that? Don’t stretch it so much you deform the point.
At the minimum, 20 staples just to do the side pocket on 1 rail, wow!

Hey King,
I didn't recover these, they were on two tables I recently purchased. The bottom rail is a Penguin brand that came covered from their factory. The top rail was recovered by someone else, probably in Ohio, as you can see it has problems, but probably not something a player would notice.

So you don't like the no-fold method because of the few extra seconds per staple it takes? Just what is it about your "hospital fold" that makes it so superior? Enquiring minds need to know,

You harp on here about hacks and industry standards, well it seems to me if new tables and rails come from the factory's in no-fold style, that is the industry standard.

Tell me something, if YOU want to throw out the industry standard as good enough, then tell me something, why does VALLEY buy rail cloth separate from the bed cloth, which unlike the rail cloth coming off the bed cloth, the rail cloth they use is thinner, and more lightweight and easier to install!! While your at it, ask if VALLEY will install Simonis cloth at the factory level....get ready for an upset to your theory of FACTORY STANDARDS!!!
