I'm looking for an inexpensive used table for home and came across a used Brunswick Brentwood table for sale. I was told the table is approximately 35 years old and it looks in good shape. It will just be for casual use for when the guys come over. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what a tble like this is worth and if anyone knows anything about the construction, etc... You can see a few pictures of the table here:

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks,

It sure doesn't look very sturdy. The legs look very thin. Also, the ball collection and storage system looks way too clean. It must have been painted. Will the paint hold up? Who knows?

The legs were the first thing I noticed as well, would want to make sure they are sturdy enough to keep the table still.

As far as paint on the storage tray, I did mine and have been very happy with it. Just have to use the right paint. I just hope they didnt make the same mistake I did and paint the ball return tray. I had to put some vinyl down in mine as I kept getting red paint on the balls when they dropped into the tray /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Thanks for the info. The legs were the first thing I noticed also. The thing is, I could probably pick this table up for about $150 so I figure for that price it's probably worth it to just knock around on for fun. Any other thoughts are appreciated.

For 150 you arent getting hurt. You could use it for a while and see how much you actually play on it. Then of course you will become addicted to pool, buy a Diamond, quit your job, and play pool for a living /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif

For $150 you can't go wrong since you can probably unload it if you don't want the table.

Table legs are easy to find in the internet; if you are worrying about the ones on the table....
