1963 Valley MFG Pool Table - 1-Piece Slate or 3-Piece Slate?


1963 Valley MFG Pool Table - 1-Piece Slate or 3-Piece Slate?

I have a 1963 Valley MFG pool table according to the table referenced in one of the comments in the question Schematics for a 1964 Valley Deluxe 775 Pool Table.

Does anyone know if 1960's-era Valley MFG pool tables have a 1-piece slate or a 3-piece slate?

    It depends on the exact model, year of manufacture, and size of the pool table, but in general:

    • Most 6-foot, 7-foot, and 8-foot coin-op pool tables from the 1960s had a one-piece slate.

    Though I've not owned or worked on one personally, I've seen lots of ads for 1960s Valley MFG coin-operated pool tables which refer to them as having a one-piece slate.

    On 1960s Valley pool tables, these weigh approximately 350 pounds give or take, depending on your pool table's size.

    Yes, it was moved today, and it was indeed a 1-piece slate which was extremely heavy!

    The bumpers were removed and the slate was lifted out. The legs were removed and we were able to load it all in a pick up truck!

    A couple of amazing guys!
