* Plain Slate Talk:  New slate will cost you at least $550 crated, insured & freighted (not UPS!) and possibly more.  We've seen claims for as little as $250 for tournament sized slate.  This is not only unrealistic -- It's impossible!  Slate is imported to the US in bulk (10 packs) and is fragile.  It must be re-crated (add $100) and insured (add $50) for freight delivery (add $150).  Some freight companies will not deliver to residential areas and require pick up at the terminal. 

Your best solution is to find slate in the $300 range within a few hundred miles. Arrange to pick it up subject to your inspection and acceptance.  Similarly look for used tables in the $300 - $600 range you can remove for someone.  You may be able to salvage some of the parts.  Take a strong friend or two and appropriate cushioning for your trip home.  Local pool table businesses may sell and deliver slate to your home.  If you are willing to drive a few hundred miles, you can save a few hundred dollars.

The plan books provide more guidance and what to look for when shopping for used slate/tables.
