This is a very solid table, and the instructions are excellent, very explicit, making sure you are careful when necessary. However, I want to list several problems I encountered:
1. The first direction is to sort all the hardware and make sure you have the number indicated for each one in the directions. The plastic bag of hardware arrived with a rip in it, and it seemed many locknuts were missing. The instructions said there should be 20, and there were only 8. I called customer service and they sent me another full bag of hardware, which arrived several weeks later. It turned out that the Quantity: 20 was a typo. Only 8 were required.
2. This was a more serious flaw. This model has a 2-piece plastic clip on the underside of each side of the table, which are already installed when it arrives. It's necessary to thread a part through this clip when assembling, and then into socket on another part. We were unable to line up the two parts on one of the sides, trying many ways, even getting ready to resort to a hammer to tap the part into line, all the while holding up the very heavy table half, when I suddenly notice that one of the clip parts had been attached upside down! Instead of one half on the left and one half on the right, both halves had been installed on the left side, and the lower one was preventing our part from lining up! We had to remove it and flip it to the correct orientation in order to continue the assembly. Also, the clip would not have functioned properly if we had not flipped it.
3. This is just a minor complaint, a cosmetic one. The table edges that meet under the net are the only ones not covered with a metal rim, and the sawed edge was left with a slight rought flange sticking up all along it. Any abrasion at all will cause the paint to flake off this edge, leaving a rough appearance down the center of the table. It's a shame, the rest of the paint job looks so nice.
