At no time do any of my lubricated fasteners make a mess when removed.

Yes....you shouldn’t just throw them onto the pool cloth...lubricated or not.
Small tears can happen from items being tossed on the cloth. Coins for example.
Put some paper down or a box.
Many times a “table guy” places his tools directly on the cloth when doing work.

Nothing should ever touch the cloth except billiard balls, your clean hands and a brush/wipe.

I would never grease anything. Now when restoring a table, I clean and lubricate all the hardware and DRY IT COMPLETELY. I also let it sit out to make sure it is not still moist anywhere.

As for the putting the tools on the cloth, I do it ALL the time. Keeping your hands and tools clean are obviously a part of this.

Well boys, I got the table home without any casualties other than a little more wear and tear on the body lol.
Now the fun begins. The table came with worn out red felt.
I would like to go blue, but the rails are a lot of work.
To shim or not to shim pockets.

All these comments, and still have no idea what kind of pool table you bought. No all pool tables disassemble the same, or go together the same for that matter.

And for the record, I don't lube any bolts on a pool table, but I do use bar soap on the slate screws to avoid breaking them off.

I bought a used Brunswick Glenwood and being a long time wood worker soap or the like is a requirement.
Thanks for the info, this voyage is just beginning and any help will be appreciated.

Prefer Beeswax. Or Trewax brand paste wax.

As a long time woodworker I despise soap. There should not be water around a pool table, but more than people realize are in humid environments or temporarily exposed to such on many summer days. IME, soaped fasteners rust/corrode faster over time. Even the brass ones, pretty sure i can tell when they have been soaped - upon removal they have a lot of green schmutz around them & in the wood.

Beeswax crumbs can mess up cloth, as can soap. Soap can be washed out, Beeswax not so much. Maybe with carbon-tet. If using paste wax, my preference is for the Trewax brand because it does not smell disgusting like Johnsons or some others. Also has more carnauba in the mix.

I have the frame and legs set up.
Need to fix some issues left from last hack job set up.
One of the inserts for the leg bolt is pulling out.
Just ordered new 860 and a qt. along with the Simonis installation videos.
Also grabbed a qt. of RKC250. Sure hope Glenn will give me a few tips on usage . Slates go on as soon as I can bribe a sturdy friend to help lol.
Getting excited.
