Hi guys,

I need six (6) of the original Gold Crown I rail bolts. They are 3/8-16 x 2" slotted head hex bolts. Yes, they are probably rusty, that's the way I like them!

Willing to pay a reasonable price plus shipping.

Regards,

jv

p.s. Trent, I sent a PM to you on this, I guess you're busy, or on the road! :)

Billiard Restoration in Kansas should have them.

I have 4 that you can have, no charge, just paying it forward. I thought I had all 6 for you, but out of all those old bolts on my table most had been swapped out already. Mark Gregory was nice enough to send new hardware for my new rails so I don’t have any use for the old ones. I am assuming that Anniversary and GC I rail bolts are the same? Pm your address and I’ll mail them out to you ASAP.

Unique bolts for sure. I had never seen hex head bolts this big that were slotted until getting this table.

Are you using slotted slate screws also?

I usually just go to one of my local fasteners places, Ajax or Fastenal. They may not have them in stock, but they can get them in a few days.

I have done that and they are not the hardened steel type. I guess I might need to specify that! :)

I wasn't aware that screws came in hardened variety. Typically, there's not enough carbon in a steel screw to harden it. You might have luck case-hardening it, though. I assume you want hardened so there's less chance of messing up the head?

I actually prefer a slotted screw head for this kind of thing. With a properly sized screwdriver, you need nearly zero axial force when turning the screw, and if the bit fits, it's not going to slip out. If you need a bit for a power driver that fits these, you're probably going to have to have it made for you by a machinist, though.

I use #14 x 3.5 from my local by them by the box. If they are not good enough. I fix the hole. But I generally don't work on that many old commercial tables anymore. I take on one every once in a while. Most don't like my price. Especially when there a quite a few

The # 16 screws are all rated at the # 2 hardness They are heat treated but not anywhere near case hardness and can break and bend , If you
want something that is stronger then use the same size in a stainless steel such as listed in the link below

I LOVE YOU CHIP. I been lookin for these for ever!! i have found some local "niche" suppliers that have gotten me stuff that is close to the size and thickness i want, but they all are cheap and BREAK! These look solid. I am going to order some. This is how forums are supposed to work! INPUT= OUTPUT> LOVE IT! Hope you are all having a great day!
