I would like to buy a used slate table for my rec room.
This would be a basic family pool table. But, I've played (years ago)
enough to appreciate that I want slate and not "slate substitute".
I have some questions.
-How much clearance from the wall is needed? I need to figure out if
I can do 9', 8', or 7'.
-If I go to look at a used table, how do I tell if it's good? Just
play some shots, look for non-true rolls? Of course it could just be
out of level? Would I be better off hiring a table pro to check it
out? How do you find one and how much does an inspection cost?
-Dissambly, moving, assembly: Professional job only? Again, where do
you find someone?
-Let's say I can go 8'. What should my budget be to buy a good family
quality true-rolling slate table, and get it disassembled, moved, and
assembled? I'm not interested in "collectible", just a good playing
