There are a lot of DC area people here, so maybe someone can help.

I'm finally going to have a home table. We're renting and the owner is leaving his table in the basement. It's a Vitalie big 8' table. I've never heard of them, but they seem to be good tables. See

Right now, it's got bucket pockets and felt. So it needs some some work. In addition to new felt, I'd like to either shim the pockets or have new, longer rails put on. But there's nothing worse than crappy shims. And I think it takes some skill to custom cut rails as well.

Long story short, I need a table mechanic in the DC area who really knows what he's doing.

Any recommendations?
