Great journey to have your table done. You have skills and table looks great.
How thick are the pocket facings?
One month ago I changed facings on my table (put new 5mm, instead of old 3mm), now my table plays very good, no more rattled balls.
Thanks. The facings are 3/8" but the hardness is what matters, they are 50A where normal facings are 60-75A. If you go that thick you need softer. And they play great. Unlike my old Olhausen I had the sub rails extended and the guy who did it put the wrong facings on and never changed the angle. The pockets spit more balls than they accepted.
Here's a link to the facings on Classic Billiards or do what I did (I fibbed in my pictures) buy a roll of it on amazon and cut them yourself. Only minor issue, they had a natural curl to them that I had to bake them in the oven sandwiched between two cookie sheets and 45lbs of weight to get them flat. Next time I'll just buy them from Classic.
