Breaking down GCIII - novice advice

I need help breaking down not one, but two Gold Crown III in a hurry...
I run a private club and we normally hire a professional mechanic for re-felt, but we have a tournament on Saturday running into the evening and get 5 new tables delivered on Sunday morning... So I have manpower available, but very little table mechanic experience
We need to break down 2 GC that are already sold and 3 other tables that go to the junkyard...

I understood the basic principle of the job from watching youtube videos, but a few things make me nervous.

Are all tools required metric or are there some special "american" sizes required? A list of required tools would be even better

Any issues that typically come up breaking down a GC 3? Things that tend to break, hidden screws you don't see at first glance etc.?

Marking the slate pieces and the frame they sit on is logical, any other markings necessary?

I can't add anything in terms of breakdown but am curious what tables are off to the junkyard

Unknown manufacturer, said be to be Hungarian made. They're around 20 years old and one of the best tablefitters in Germany struggled to put them together at the last re-felting.
We paid 450 per table when the owner wanted them back 10 years ago, so it can't be anything good.
