Thank you for posting, and thank you for using the correct format (English or metric units are fine), making it easy for me to add it to the list, which I have done.

Here's the latest:

Calculate your Table Difficulty Factor (TDF) to determine how tough it plays in comparison to other tables. Only three pocket measurements are required, and you can use the online mobile-friendly TDF calculator (created by "Isaac") or the TDF Excel spreadsheet calculator to get your results.

username - table size, pocket mouth size, mouth-throat difference, shelf depth - TDF (table description)

There's one important factor that isn't taken into account in this TDF calculator you have, and I know typically normal tables don't have this, but some weird made old tables do develop this thing which I call roundness of the ledge of pocket, this is very important, to me the rounder this ledge is, the harder and more difficult the table is, because essentially what happens is the table will hardly accept any shots especially those near the cushion.

I did experiment with this and to me my table which has a little rounded ledge (due to fatigue i think or misuses or whatever happened to this table for this to develop) is very much harder table than my friends which has smaller pockets, however my table will refuse shots that my friends table will accept.

Maybe you wont understand what I mean, but think of snooker pockets, do you see how rounded the edge of pockets left & right are and it is the reason why in snooker the balls which are closer to the rail will be regarded as safe or hard shots to make, this exactly what I'm talking about, now I know in billiards we don't have this roundness which is why the balls near the rail are actually easier to play, because in pool what we have is a pointy angle, like really pointy and thats why in pool the rail balls are easy, but as I said, some misused rails can have roundness to them and not the pointy type of edges, if your pocket is not pointy, then check how harder it is to pocket balls, thats all I'm saying.

Image will explain it better.

I'm redoing all my rails and table soon and I'll take the measurements after it done if I can find a pro that is closer then 70mi away as it cost as much for him to show up as for the job. I'm located in kirkman Iowa do you know any mechanic in my area
 
That's easy to answer. Just take the measurements on all tables of interest and enter them into the online mobile-friendly TDF calculator. If you do, please also post the measurements and results here so I can add them to the list.

Thanks,
Dave

I don't, but hopefully somebody in Iowa has some suggestions.

Excellent point. The TDF system applies only to tables with flat facings, like pool tables. It does not apply to tables with rounded facings like snooker or Chinese pool tables.

Regards,
Dave
I think another factor not considered in the TDF calculator is the age and wear of the cloth. Simonis cloth that has been on a table for 2-3 years is going to make the pockets play tougher than 6 month old Simonis on the same table.

There are many factors not considered. Here are some quotes from the TDF resource page explaining why:

The TDF and effective-score numbers should not be interpreted too literally since there are so many other factors that contribute to how difficult a table actually plays (side pocket geometry, cloth type and condition, ball conditions, pocket facing and shim properties, rail and cushion conditions, table levelness, humidity, etc.).

When the TDF system was developed, side pocket measurements were excluded to keep the system as simple as possible (requiring as few measurements as possible) while still capturing the most important characteristics of a table. On most tables, it is the corner pocket toughness (and not the side pocket toughness) that dominates overall table difficulty level.

Here is my routine to get a table ready to ''read'' when I'm trying to get my answer
1st....Vacuum each section, and rail/cushion tops with bed vac tool.
2nd....do a walk around & use crevice tool to vac pockets, under cushion area and various fuzz not gotten.
3rd....soak your rag, clean, damp, no lint cotton rag rinsed out, but not too much fold cloth in half twice.
I wipe my 9' in 4 sections, each side. I turn my cloth new, for each section. I wipe in pocket wear area to rid of ball lines.
Once table is ''wet ragged'' I use another new section of the table/wipe cloth that is now holding ''allot'' less moisture, yet my cloth is clean.
I then do a final table walk around and wipe the top rails, the pocket interiors and again, use the same cloth, with a new fold area/clean. Takes about 20 min to set up and do one table.

What is the question to which you are getting your answer?

Thank you for sharing your table cleaning procedure. That might be helpful to people who have poor table hygiene.

Happy Holidays,
Dave

In my experience, the only way to test table toughness is, will balls fall in when it brushes the rail before entering the pocket. This factor is what separates players. If you have fast rails, tables will play tougher. Other factors like pocket facings play an important role. I’m talking about a good table that’s been assembled well, Derby tables are too easy for the top players. They know this and sometimes get sloppy on their position. If a pocket plays to easy, people have a tendency to not focus on their fundamentals and their position gets sloppy. I have played for a long time, and today’s rails are much slower then they used to be. And this tends to make pockets play much easier. Final thought, pool is meant to be fun, that’s why league players love bar boxes. To me a player has two option’s, practice and play like a madman, so your ball pocketing scares the crap out of everyone in your hometown, and you can’t get a game.
Or you can enjoy yourself and get relatively proficient and always have action. Not scientific but true.

Derby tables and ANY other table with new worsted cloth plays easy. For a while. Once the cloth breaks in they get tougher. Diamond ProCut pockets on broken-in Simonis(or any worsted) are not easy.

Agreed. The TDF takes this into account. The pocket opening size, facing angles, and shelf depth are the main factors that determine this. For more info, see the explanations and links on the TDF resource page.

Other factors like pocket facings play an important role.

Many other factors (side pocket geometry, cloth type and condition, ball conditions, pocket facing and shim properties, rail and cushion conditions, table levelness, temperature, humidity, cleanliness, etc.) play a role, but the three corner pocket measurements are the most important factors determining the toughness of a table over a wide range of conditions.

Dave
