Not trying to hijack the thread as I think the question has been answered but I have one about glueing as well. I haven't been able to coax a mechanic to Omaha to tighten my 7' proam pockets and put new felt on it so I'm going to give it a shot. On to the question...
When using the glue method (or any really) to put on Simonis, how much slack do I leave for the side pockets, so the cloth will stretch enough when I make the slits. I've done a few tables but never seem to leave enough slack. I've seen the video but was wondering if there was a measurement. Like the slate opening is "X" inches wide, measure out an extra inch or two or three etc. Hope this makes sense.
Glen posted this awhile back. The allowance for slack is just the side pockets.
I've been using 3/4" on both sides of the starting side pocket and 1/2" on the opposite side which works ok for me.
When stretching the length pull towards the corners.
Probably a dumb question but why only 1/2" on the opposite side?
