    The slate on this table is in 3 sections. About 250 #'s per piece. Does one inch slate sound right? Or 2 3/4 inch? I cant remember how thick the pieces are.

    Oh the memories of the pool hall education basically being there 7 days a week when I only 13-16yrs old. (8 ball only) We weren't allowed in the billiards section (4 lrg. tables) of the hall as it was the "Men"-we could sit and watch as long as we kept it zipped. The upper section was for the young idiots/pushers that hung out, as it had 8 tables of various sizing.
    Me and a buddy hustled for yrs supporting our habits.
    Got to be pretty good by the time we got to the bar scene (16-18yrs old)
    Then life's habits took a lot of the enjoyment-plus a major hand accident.
    I've played a bit over the years-very rarely, and it's a lost art it seems to what we had at such a young age.

    Yep, that's what mine is, 3 sections & about 250 # per section = 1" slate. As cataracts led to surgery in both eyes, artificial lenses in both eyes, I'll never see the same again - but I can drive at night and see clearly. But my vision will never be the same again. Yes, I see clearly now with no issues, but it is "different".I do wish I had space in my house to set the table up again.

    Life happens to each of us, just hope the changes were for the better. It does however limit my drinking - and drinking was my second habit My Dad was a bootlegger - got busted hauling a load. Down here in podunk rural Virginia at that period of time, the only way to make good money was hauling liquor.

    I was always an average pool player. One afternoon in 1972 I took a medium dose of LSD with my wife, and played a friend who planned to relish his victory over my altered state. I was peaking and gazed at the ball distribution after my break, and proceeded to run the table. The geometry appeared perfect and the solutions to the needed angles of impact were transparent. The pockets appeared HUGE....it was fun. I recall Dock Ellis, the MLB pitcher who pitched a perfect game while tripping, and the episode of the Sopranos when Tony dropped acid and busted the casino bank! Not to mention Steve Jobs' revelations when tripping. Many years ago, but the memories are like today! https://nypost.com/2014/08/31/pitche...w-a-no-hitter/

He started laughing and said the wk b4 he was moving g a table and the parents were there and found a bag of weed underneath the table. That kid he said got busted by his folks
