    Is the price for refurbishing still $50? I’ve had my 37 year old Tournament board packed and labeled for shipping to you for months now, and just can’t decide if I want it refreshed and looking like new, or if I want to keep its patina of all those years of blood, sweat and tears (& hamburgers, french fries, paté, and King Crab, etc…)

    Also, i had asked about a little customizing with an “Alaska” logo, name and Tournament date, and your reply was that you could do that at the same time for another $50. Is that price still good, too?

    Once I hear back from you, I’ll have to decide put the box back into my car (where it traveled around town with me for a couple months. It really is not an easy decision…

    Thanks for helping me out,

      Hi John,
      Thanks for the message. It is always our goal to refurbish your set to a point where it will last another 37 years while still preserving the character it has developed over time.

      Starting at $75, our refurbishing services can include new playing fields, new bumpers, a new handle, checker polishing, and a tune-up of your hardware. You can even have the option to customize the new elements of your set.

      We sell a lot of new sets and are doing an increasing number of refurbs. My feeling is for less than $150 to get your current set spruced up is a great thing. I hope we’ve helped with your decision.
      Let us know!
      Thanks

        Hi Peter,
        $45 – $50 sounds a bit on the high side. I would estimate it to be less than $35. We’d be happy to calculate the exact cost if you can reply with your zip code. We can also discuss your options for getting the set to us. We have the option of making it very easy for you.
        Thank you

    These quotes are old. Price today to refurb a vintage Crisloid set? New cork, handle, checkers polished, numbers and can you replace a hinge?

    Thank you

    Also, I have a vintage Gammon table but need checkers. Do you make 2 inch checkers? If I send photo of tape measure laying across field, can you determine the exact size I will need for checkers?

      We do make checkers that are cast at 2″, but I’d like to note that our checkers lose a very slight amount of that diameter due to the rounding and polishing process.
      These are $40 per color (set of 15 checkers + 1 spare), unless you’d like a custom color.
