And can I cut one in half with a wet tile saw ?
Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. Do you enjoy the thought of being an amputee or having that ball lodged into your skull?
I'm picturing a really hard projectile.
Polyester or other variants. Solid I think.
I don't see why a wet tile saw wouldn't work. Let us know if it explodes.
God bless nitrocellulose and exploding balls.
Hopefully you're buying a second set, as youd be making it very unfair to cut one of the solids in half.
Just kidding, but my friend did this and he was fine.
A wet saw will work just fine, when my kids were small used go thunder egg hunting in Oregon, I would cut them in half and grab my Marble and Graite polisher and go at it.
Thunder egg = Geode?
I've had that.
I went to a camp in West Virginia as a kid and we went to a stream to hunt for what we called thunder eggs. They were round black rocks with cracks in them like if they had a shell and smaller than a golf ball usually. The geode makes sense to cut in half though.
Somewhat related question....
In a bar room type pool table, how does the ball return system differentiate between the cue and the other balls so the cue comes out the back?
...cue ball is heavier
I'll say this much: I've dropped a pool ball off of an 11 storey building and watched it hit the road below. It did not break. It bounced like a mtherfcker and disappeared into the night. Good times
The cue ball is bigger for one. I don't know if the weight makes the difference or the size.
The cue ball is smaller, guys. Sheesh.
HowStuffWorks "How does the ball return work on a coin-operated pool table?"
Dude, I'm not going to read that. I'm just calling it as I see it. In the twenty-something different bars I have played pool in across the UK, the cue ball has ALWAYS been smaller than the rest of the balls.
EDIT: We play English Pool, with red and yellow balls, whereas you play American Pool with the numbers and the stripes and the colors. In our game, the cue ball is definitely smaller, perhaps not so in yours.
Thats write Sir!
Just on the coin op tables. The cue ball is noticeably bigger. It sucks if you actually like a good game of pool, which you won't get on a bar table. If you want a real game, you have to go down to the pool hall with the big tables, and if you want they have the snooker tables too.
What a strange hobby..
