Depends. New install....for a lot of places who hire furniture assemblers, yeah, unfortunately, that's acceptable. Used table, if the cloth was not replaced, depending on the stretch pattern of the original install...might be as good as it gets.
As these other guys said, for a qualified mechanic, that's not acceptable. There shouldn't be metal in the face of the pocket that the ball could hit.
This was a new table, but showing it to another dealer that sells the same tables, they said it would not be acceptable to them. We have reached out to Legacy and it looks like they may help.
I have also contacted Kory at Seyberts about doing a complete tear down, recover, and rebuild. Anybody have experience with Seyberts installers?
