What is the best way to fix crowned pool table slate?

If I stand on it the high spot goes level with the center slate, but I'd hate to have to stand on it while playing...

    How did you end up fixing this issue with uneven slates?

    As fate would have it, I threw away a newer, free 9' "black max" pool table because it was a P.O.S.

    Robertson bought-out Saunier Wilhelm pool table manufacturing and just put their name on those pool tables and it was just OK, and since I got it for free and it was taking up space, I wanted it gone. So I trashed it BUT I saved the slate and added it to my thrown-away pool table slate patio in the back of my home.

    So, when I realized that the Italian slate from my older REAL Black Max pool table was crowned, I began measuring and everything was identical except for the position of two of the screw holes, so no big deal. The thickness was an exact match and that was the most important thing. I uprooted it from my patio, scraped the old particle-board backing and glue off and got it inside and on my pool table (by myself I might add), and it was perfect.

    I thought about replacing all three slates with the patio slate but i just added new wood backing to all of the slates and didn't want to restart that process. If I had a helper I'd have gone that route but it wasn't necessary. Also, I might have found that one of the patio slates was crowned or warped, so I had no guarantees.
