Okay starting like this… My wife and I went on a double date with good friends of ours. We went for a night out at the casino (Caesars Windsor). We started off at the buffet, which is a Godsend. No food better than that! And after a few plates and a couple plates for the dessert bar, we decided to roll ourselves out onto the game floor. We played a few games here and there but then came the roulette table. We got hooked! We made good dough on her. So now we made a plan that once/month we would double date again to the same place. Until then we want to practice our roulette. now we need a roulette table and wheel. I want to know if anyone knows a thing or two about the roulette wheel that I must know before I whip one up. Thx.

i saw a show once about how gaming equipment is made/tested. casino wheels are built to extremely tight tolerances for balance and spacing. any variance takes some of the randomness out of it’s operation and that’s bad for the casino. no offense, but i think you’d have a tough time building one to actual gaming commission specs. you’d probably be better off practicing on a computer. no wait, your best bet is to quit now while you’re ahead.

I just need to share what i have purchased last two weeks ago, and since I’ll be coming back to update this as the project moves along the, it didn’t quite fit in the low-content thread on the other hand. Hoewver It’d be similarly mostly ignored in Other Games as well so i can provide the ph0tos.คาสิโนออนไลน์ It happened that the previous owner used wood fill putty, tape(!) and then laid over faux-wood patching tape in the inside rim (not shown) to cover the gaps.
As not a master woodworker myself, I can’t comment as to how good an idea wood bondo is , and lacking a very expensive restoration, it might be the fastest route to a working wheel…
