In a bit of a conundrum here and decided to turn to the webs before I go beyond the point of no return.
I just bought a pool table second hand, it was all broken down when I got it and there are no instructions. I have the frame together and legs on but I can't for the life of me figure out how the slate attaches to the frame.. there is no indication of it ever being attached before but I know the table was setup at one point.
Is there such a thing as a slate top table that doesn't attach to the frame somehow?
I'm not sure but I do not think it attaches to anything. The sheer weight of it should keep it in place plus after the table is assembled it should be locked in. I'm sure you will get a much more detailed response from someone else.
I see no means of attaching it to the frame at all... there are two sets of holes in the slate - one smaller set that matces the slate backing (showin in pic) and another bigger set that lines up with the rails.
My confusion is taht if i do both those things which I coudl easily do.. the slate still hasn't been attached to the frame.. ?
