As a family owned and operated business – we want to provide billiards enthusiast with a quick, easy solution for their pool table needs. For the past 20+ years, we have specialized in creating adjustable aluminum security products for basement window wells at www.grate.com and www.windowwellladder.com and now offer a product for pool table leveling.
After the construction of our new home in 2009, we were eagerly awaiting the delivery and set up of our new pool table in our game room. We couldn’t wait to host friends and family over for fun filled nights of pool playing and comradery. We watched as the installers began the very untechnical trial and error efforts to level the pool table with rubber shims.
Shortly after the table was installed – we noticed that that the balls on the playing surface were not rolling the same as they had previously. After checking we discovered that the table was no longer level. Apparently between the carpet and pad compressing and maybe even our slab on grade concrete floor shifting – our table needed additional work to keep the playing enjoyable. Back came the installers and again we watched as they lifted each end of the table trying to get the perfect balance of shims under each leg to level the table.
Needless to say, the levelness of the table changed again. Between more compression of the carpet and pad and/or the concrete slab movement – the table once again became un-level.
In our primary business, Adjust-A- Grate, Inc., we have used precision CNC milling machines for quite a number of years and when John sat down with his 3D CAD software to design a device that would easily help us keep our table level; he knew he would be able to utilize our milling machines to create a pool table leveler that would have infinite adjustments. He began the design process and while doing so came to the realization that if we had this problem – other pool table owners might also. He set out to fix our pool table problem, but in doing so, created the patented FlatJax that will help you fully enjoy your pool table once again!
