I hope that doesn't create interference issues, I would imagine the new drop pockets are going to have to be cut quite a bit to accommodate that extra width? I just looked at my table and don't think that would work for mine unless I bored holes all the way through the frame to gain access to the rail bolts. I take it you must have a different setup?

Thank you for the nice comment

My frame is 51-7/8 x 101-7/8. The slate being 57x107 it leaves about 2-9/16 all around which is close to the original .On the other hand I pretty much eye ball the pocket cutout at roughly 1-1/2" - 2" (dont recall exactly) behind the slate cutout. They probably dont look exactly like the original.

The angle the picture have been taken from is probably creating an optical illusion...

Okay good! I just measured mine and 2-9/16" all around will be fine. I think you are right about the optical illusion. The stock frames are tapered to accommodate a ball return option and that's probably what threw me off. Good deal! I just didn't want you to have put the slate on, and then find out later you need to take 2 inches off the frame width.

I think I understand the difference now. I don't think it's an issue at all, as a matter of fact it will probably be even better for clearance of the side pockets, since the cutouts for the side pockets are more inboard than the typical Anniversary frame that I've seen here in the states. My aftermarket side pockets had to be trimmed due to clearance issues with the frame, had the side pocket radius been cut back another 1/2", or so it probably would of made a better fit. Something else for me to consider the next time the Brunstone is off the frame.

Guys

I'll be ready to post an update of my project soon but with the recent debate about DIYer posting in mechanic forum, I wonder if I should ask to have my thread moved to the main forum ?

For me posting my project here is just a way to thank past and present contributers for sharing their knowledge by giving back some entertainment.

Just let know if you feel that I should have it moved and I will gladly comply.

When the table is complete, post in the main forum like many people do. I posted my Anniversary there and it got a great response. Don't ask this one to be moved but keep this one going until complete. Just my two cents.

Martin,

I would appreciate you continuing your updates in this forum. The DIY forum debate was a bit foolish, in my opinion. Aside from that, your skill-set is far beyond the typical DIY'er.

Thank you for sharing.

My budget is pretty limited right now, I will probably reinstall the old existing pocket I have. For the futur I was entertaining the idea of installing a ball return system but I'm not sure anymore...

I guess the answer to your question is "I dont know yet" but I'm really open to suggestions.

BTW my casting do not have the relief cut to receive the bolt on pocket, which I prefer over the nailed variety. Did you ever see those casting modified to receive the bolt on pocket ?

Thanks

Martin

Other than trading out the castings for the castings that screw the pockets it, you're not getting out of nailing the pockets in. The frame supports you added are going to be in the way of a ball return being mounted, and if you're thinking about using the GC4 drop pockets, you're still going to need to cut back your frame in the side pockets and corners by an inch to make room to mount them. That is why I asked.

Thanks for the feedback. What is the difference beetween the regular pockets and the GC4 ones other than (I think) being deeper ? Knowing they are taking more space, I can cut my frame off before I put the slates on. By the way, my actual pockets cut-out are not necessarely as the original since a built the top of my frame from scratch and pretty much eyeballed the pockets cutout. I cut them roughly 1-1/2"-2" behind the slate cutout.

I was asking for the casting because I never saw a picture of the inside of one of those casting and I was curious to see how they looks.

As for the ball return, too bad . It was a fun possibilty but not really a necessity for me.

Martin
