Does anyone know how to measure the moisture in a pool table. I have tried to find a billiard table moisture meter but have not been able to find one.

I don't mean to sound dense, but what does that mean? And why would you want to do it? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

It still would tell you something.

I think you can mostly judge from the humidity and temperature in the room. While you're experimenting, try heating the table a few degrees. That's what they do for carom tables (the kind with no pockets) to make the cushions and cloth react consistently.

your only concern should be total room humidity....let us know what it is ..
