What can you tell me about the slate of a pool table?

Slate can come in either a 1- piece section or a 3-piece set. 1-piece slate is very cumbersome and difficult to level because it covers such a large expanse of space. It is generally only 12″ in thickness and does not have any guarantees concerning the level. The most common place that 1 piece slate can be found is on coin operated, or very inexpensive tables.

3-piece slate is the best type of slate because it allows for more precise leveling. With three different sections of slate, each can be leveled individually to achieve a perfect level. This, of course, will allow your table to play better. 3 piece slate is available in several different thickness including, 3/4″, 7/8″, and 1″.
