Did you just switch sides of the discussion?

I'm not sure about every time they are moved, but I know that ours was done twice over a 10 year period. My dad probably played 50-100 racks a week during that span.

So you intentionally portray yourself as an immature, adolescent, fratboy-esque manchild in order to...what, exactly? Are you under the impression that it's entertaining?

Yes, we all do.

Please leave me alone. I've realized the error in my ways and I'm taking the necessary steps to become a better person.

Should I lowball? It's in excellent condition.
I would say 3 BJ's and their help in moving it.



Also pushy, i would rather have no sex than be fat from beer.

Most tables are 3-piece slate for ease of assembly/moving. Each piece can weigh 200-275lbs each. Some are a single piece of slate. Tables can weight up to 1000lbs.

Generally not. Re-felting requires a parcial disassembly of the table. But when moving one, it's a very good time to decide if one wants to refelt or not...either to have a different color, a better felt (fast or slow) or if it really needs replacing. We had ours recovered with black felt on it's original move to our house because the green was boring.

Most people view tables as a major pain in the *** to move. My guess is that when it comes down to it they will take $50.

As a data point, we sold this table for $1500 a couple of years ago. It was a 9 foot Brunswick that was over 100 years old:
