Post here if you have detailed step-by-step instructions or videos on how to disassemble and reassemble the table, as well as changing out the cloth, cup holders, etc. And if you're in the market for one, show off your results here!
I agree and hear what you're saying but I can't fit a non-folding table let alone a 8x4 in the space I'm playing in right now. I'm looking at these used but still found the similar price difference between them all and since its something I'll have for a few years it'd be worth it to me to spend an extra $50 if there's a difference besides the felt. As for overall cost, I'm estimating it'll be around $200-250 including re-felting, adding in new and deeper cup holders, plus a few handles which is a drop in the bucket considering I just purchased a barrel of hundos for $200 alone.It's a natural progression, start with least expensive everything, upgrade your chips, then upgrade your table.
Not sure which picture you mean, but it was probably the lighting or dust. No chalk. The half closer to me was not stapled or cut yet I stapled both on top under where the arm rests would go.@saleen121212 question: in this picture (more visible in the one before this one) there’s what may be chalk marks on the far side of the table near the edge of the felt. Are these chalk marks (if so what purpose) and if not what are they?
Also, in this picture have you just not cut the felt on the near side of the table yet or do you wrap it underneath the table and staple gun it there?
Nah I went with the cheap stuff from Amazon since I had no idea what I was doing. The silver things are the staples if that's what you meanThanks for the info would have definitely run into that issue if you hadn’t mentioned it. Is the felt from YAT?
As for the picture I was referring to these:
It depends on how the rail sections come off and how the felt is attached to the playing surface. If the rails are simply screwed in place from the underside of the table then they should pop right off... and even if the felt is attached using some type of adhesive you could just go over the top of it with your SSC and not deal with it.I know this isn't Barrington but has anyone owned or tried refelting one of these tables? I see the a lot and they look like they may have better rails plus ones available near me for $50.
I've redone a couple of those table types for friends, and it's a real PITA. Easiest way to get a new playing surface is to make a fitted insert (1/4" MDF) with padding/felt and just set it in place on top of the existing table (inside the rail circumference). You lose rail depth, but trying to do anything else is usually much more than you bargained for.
