my family owns a very old pool table. my great grandfather (i am 30) bought it from a bar that was going out of business. it took nickels to operate. my great grandfather has passed so i have no idea of knowing how old the pool table could be. i would like to restore to table to as near to original as i can. i cant find a brand name on it anywhere, does anyone know where i could find out how to locate the information i need to restore it or how i could find out who manufactured it? i've never posted here before, my e-mail is fasteddieinkc@hotmail.com any help would be much appreciated. thanx, eddie

Hi Eddie, Im in KC also. I looked into billiards tables a while back and found some restoration companies in this KC area. I cant remember their names offhand but when I come across them I will drop you an email. They might be able to help with recognition or suggestions. Good luck and have fun.

Hi Eddie,
I,too,have an old table.(1911 Brunswick)I took pictures of it,scanned them and sent them to Brunswick and others for identification.I received an immense amount of info-also, many posters ,on this forum,are knowledgeable about tables!Im guessing this is a bar-size table?Take some pictures and send them out-that might be a good start!
Good luck!
