Refurbished Tables - will
usually have a very nice refurbished cabinet that will have a new finish on the esthetic
parts of the table giving a very nice outward appearance. This
table however is not a truly Restored Table.
Refinished Tables - The
refinished table means exactly that! The old finish has been stripped off with minimal
veneer repair and a couple coats of lacquer / varnish applied.
A truly Restored Table will have a
quality near-perfect esthetic restoration, without Bondo or wood filler but with
true veneer and/or solid hardwood repairs. A truly restored table will also have an excuse
free professional playing table with all the exacting tolerances of a
championship table. It will only be limited to the extent of its design, original
construction, and weight. To ensure that excuse free professional play, all REBCO
restorations will follow our own 9 point restoration plan.
Rebco's 9 Point Plan
REBCO RESTORATIONS WILL HAVE:
The slates will have new
solid Poplar hardwood frames.
The slates will be surfaced
All of the pocket openings in
the slate will be templated so that all corner pockets are the same depth and radius and
that both side pockets are the same depth and radius.
The rails have been
registered to the center lines of the slate bed to ensure that the diamonds are registered
to the slate bed.
The edges of the slate will
be straight-edged to assure that rail block faces are in alignment with each other so that
when the cushion seats/liners are installed that the cushions will be straight in-line.
The cushion seats are milled
to the current pro-cushion angles and height and installed to the rail block while the
rail blocks are attached to the slate bed. This will ensure professional play and accuracy.
The cushions are attached to
the rail assemblies under pressure utilizing "V" boards under mechanical clamp
pressure, "Not with contact cement"!
The diamonds will measure
true across side pockets.
The rail pocket openings will
measure the same for all corner and/or side pockets.
