Is it difficult? It seems pretty straight forward if you take your time to level it and smooth the ridges. Am I crazy for thinking I can do it myself?

How much does one piece of a three piece slate weigh?

thanks
Peter

A one-inch 9-foot table 3-piece slate usually weigh around 275 lbs. each.

Yes the slate weighs alot, and yes you are crazy if you do it yourself /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif If you dont know what you are doing you can take a nice table and make it play like rocks on shag carpet. On the other hand a qualified installer can take a so so table and make it play much better. Please be advised just because somone works as a table installer that doesnt always make them qualified. You may need to ask around with some of the players in your communinty to find out who can do a good job.

I called a local amusement Company and paid them to move my pool table from where I bought it (*used) to my house. Ask your pool room where they have theirs done.
