View Full Version : Q for Table Mechs/Wanabes

On a few GCIII's in my home room the edge of the cushion is not flush to the rail. The cushion sits slightly below the rail level, and consequently certain shots requiring bridging off the rail will endanger your cue (if you care about your cue as much as I do)

So, I was wondering if there is a way to build up the edge of the cushion that contacts the rail before reclothing it. I was thinking along the lines of rubber cement, or caulk...

Does anyone have any ideas? btw, this is not a result of people sitting on the rails, or anything like that. Its as if the formica/wood rose or swelled after all these years, and new cushions will not solve this problem.

You may need new strips when you replace the cloth. They are usually set level with the edge of the rail. Yours sound like they are set in too deep exposing the edge of the mica.
