I don't think anyone makes a decent bolt in replacement for the GCI. I'm running these which are GCIV style. I used these pockets on my old table and can attest to their quality.
My mechanic had to cut a 7/8" radius around the side pocket cutout in the frame and straight cut the frame corners for the pockets to fit properly. These pockets are larger than the originals and require more clearance.
Nice! Rexus, that works to. I cut the pocket rather than cutting the frame. Both ways work I am sure. Cant wait to see your finished project!
I sell those as well and for a better price Sonofkingjames1 PM me if you are interested.
I hear you. The benefit of cutting the frame is no exposed wood of the frame overhanging the pocket, no gap between the slate and pocket and you retain the full capacity of the pocket.
