          all I know is the owner of the table says he bought it from Liverpool , it all depends if in house fitter or sub contractor Fitter did the work ,
          I did not want to get the blame for the missing parts when it went back together so the client had to be told , but I would have told anyone anyway as important part of the table is missing and the shoddy fitting of bed cloth
          just lately I have come across a few job's that are little suspect like loose cloths , and on another job low quality cloths fitted to a table and white rubber when they asked for Northern Rubber .
          It is just not worth cutting corners as any fitter will know you will be found out later down the line by another fitter if not the players .

            Hi Geoff, I have a supreme winner and it is difficult to get level. I think the slate might have a slight distortion?
            I know you use baize off cuts to create a "pyramid" effect under the slate to eliminate this. I was wondering if this is something I could do myself (and a friend!) or do I need a fitter to do it?
            Regards
            Danny
            Did you put my "1" up ?

              Yes but Be careful lifting the slate out , , best to take the top surround off and move slate to one side do one side then move over and do the other side

              look at photo in this link and do not go past the alloy cross members keep cloth inside these and build up two strips first one smaller than the first , put slate back in and try out if you think it requires another strip then shorter than the last one building up the lift to eliminate sagging of slate ,
              if it requires any more than this , then get rid of the table ....lol

                Thanks very much Geoff.
                I can't remember seeing any alloy cross members though,I'm sure they are all timber?
