Did brunswick make any 1 piece slate tables? I am looking at a used table but I want a 3 piece slate. The owner is not sure. It is a drop pocket table.

Crawl under the table with a flashlight. You should be able to see the seams.

The only Brunswick table with a one piece slate was a 7'Zenith. ( I think )

There must be a provision to shim the slate joints from the bottom if necessary, so most should be at least partially visible.

Don't buy it unless (as others have said) you see the
seems to prove it is a 3 piece slate. Also the owner
should know this! If not ask, why he doesn't know his own
table. Don't jump to quick to get a table if it sounds
like the owner doesn't know his own table. If it is a one
piece Brunswick I would likely run in the other direction
fast, as that would make me question the entire table.
