Vintage Robertson Black Max


Vintage Robertson Black Max

ok, i got a 90's vintage, Robertson "Black Max" 9' for FREE. i had to drive 100 miles one-way to get it and overheated my 62, Chev 3/4 (my fault) but i got there, got it in the Truck and made it back home. it's basically a good table BUT was in a fool hall for decades and has all the bumps and bruises to prove it. i sanded and clear-coated the rails with automotive clear with some added gold pearl so they sparkle in the light. just yesterday i decided that the frame needed strengthening because the slate support is not directly over the base. there's about 8" of 2x6 which is really 1.5" thick and this sticks out 4.5" from the base. so about 900lbs of slate is held up by unsupported wood. it's really a dumb design, almost like they made the base for a standard 8' table. regardless, i decided to use some angle-iron to bolster the wood. NOW, it's a pro-pool table! also, some jackass pool table mechanic screwed-up the wood backing on the slate so i'm going to replace it all with new wood. i've never done this but it seems pretty straight forward. here's a pic of my base strengthening. the angle iron is thick so the slate is now well supported. i countersunk the screws too to make it nicer.
