Hi, new to the forums, been lurking for a few days, looking for any information on rail(bumper?) repair. Sorry if it has been covered before, but I couldn't find anything via the search function.
Anyway, I have an old coin-op bar table, that needs a little fixing up, the rails are sagging uncontrollably, it has gotten to the point where the ball will hop when it hits the rail(this is due to a few years ago, where it was used as seating..).
There is also a leg that has come a little loose, and the diamonds are gone along the sides, those however, I think I can handle(although any pointers are welcome!).
The rails are my main conern. I went to all state billiards the other day, and asked about my poor rails, they said I could do it myself, and all it would take is some 'constantine glue', which I could find at any local hardware store. I'm just wondering what you guys think, and is this information correct?
Here's a few pictures of the problems...
first, lets start with what the subject was all about, the rails..
(i know the felt is in terrible condition, but it's fine for my current skill level, and im a broke college student sooo..)
ok, next is the legs..
fuzzy picture..bad leg
and last but not least, what's left of the only diamond still somewhat visible..
any and all input/suggestions are welcome, cuz I need it! I'd like to get back into pool(i just uncovered this table a week or so ago), but I'm going to need to fix it up just a bit!
