Who cares! I am tired of talking about Allison Fischer. That's
all anyone wants to talk about in r.s.b. is Allison Fischer. And
now that she is making pool tables, we're going to hear even more
about Allison Fischer. I say, ENOUGH!!

Fisher has been out of business for quite some time, I'm thinking 20
years but that may be an overestimate. I have no idea where you would
find out information about the tables.

Don,
What kind of information do you need on Fischer pool tables. These tables have
not been built for over twenty years. I have worked on many Fischer tables,
maybe I can answer some of your questions. In fact I just recut the angle of
the rails at the pocket openings for a friend of mine who owns a Fischer. He
played on it for over twenty years and never really liked the way it played, so
I improved it a little. It was not one of the better playing tables. Aluminum
channels to hold the rails in place and no cushion facings. I think the Valley
was a little higher quality even back then. There are still lots of people
playing on them so they can't be all bad.
Sincerely,
Jerry Pechauer

I find the discussion about recutting the pockets interesting. I had
heard that one of the reasons that these tables failed was because the
pockets played tougher than on the Valleys. People like to make balls,
and it was easier on a Valley than on a Fischer.

Any comment? BTW, I learned to play on a Fisher commercial table we had
in our basement when I was growing up and we were very happy with it.

Ed,
Now I know why you are such a good player. Anyone that could play on a Fischer
can play on anything. Not to cut down your table, but the quality was not up
to that of it's competitors. Thats why they are no longer in business. It's a
good lesson for all of us.

A friend of mine had a Fischer table. He said it was not slate but marble. I didn't take it apart to find out. I thought it played fine. It did have a totally different sound. Again, I am not sure why.

After all these years I'm still using your cue. It has paid for itself. :-)

No it is not it closed in 1976 but I worked there for years and would try and answer questions if I could. Just email me at epic...@gmail.com. I have a book of all tables made and sold and their pricing.

We have a vintage pool table that needs a new felt stretch. I was hoping to find that my grandmother's favorite priest from St. Peters in Jefferson City MO. (Father Fischer), and or his family's co. Might be a resource to help. With that company out of business, I am at a total loss on where to find help with this special project. Please let me know what recommendations will answer our pool table prayers in Texas.

I'm currently moving a fischer from my grandparents to my house. I remember playing on it at my great-grandfathers. I never knew till today that it had "magna board". I took the rails off today and was shocked. It rolls and plays like every slate table I've ever played on.

I know this post was originally a really long time ago, and no clue if you still would get this message, but you said you worked on Fischer tables. I'm looking at buying one, I don't know the model at this point or year. I'm guessing a 70's table based on others I've seen online, and it doesn't have a ball return, just drop pockets. Is the disassembly the same on all tables? I'm just curious if the slate comes completely out and can be carried alone? I've watched videos on other tables, one being a Valley, and the rails come off and then the slate comes out and can be carried alone. Is it the same on Fischer tables? Or do only the legs come of and the rest has to be carried together? I feel like the rails must come off, for re-felting purposes as well, but I'm not sure. Any help or guidance would be appreciated!

No, it closed it's doors in 1976 and I worked there until December 1974 and you can email me with questions and if I can help anyone just ask. Between my two brothers and myself I have most pictures and spec's of the tables made and prices. I have keep these things and I know of no other ones at all. If you ever go through Tipton Missouri on the west of town the factory still stands and a company makes candles there but the big water tower is still a big 8 Ball. Ed..

Hi Jerry!
I'm not Don, but I am looking for info on a Fischer pool table.
I am inheriting my Great Grandfather's marble top Empire VII purchased in February 1968 (he kept the receipt). I'm going to have to disassemble it to move it and can't find any information on its assembly. I wondered if you can offer any advice or if you might know the answer to some of my questions... There aren't any visible screw heads or obvious removable panels to be able to take off the bumpers so the marble can be lifted out. Do you know how to get the bumpers off? Also wondering if the marble top is one piece or three piece?
Thanks for any advice or info you can offer!
