Thread: Fischer table, When made?

  1. #1

    Default Fischer table, When made?

    I have had a Fischer coin op table for a couple of years now and I have never been able to figure out when it was made as the company is now out of business. The Fischer Mfg Co was located in Tipton MO. The town has a website that gives a short history of the Co. It closed its doors in 1976 if I was readin it right .I was just wondering if anybody here knows any way of finding out when this table was made. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

    I have repaired alot of the Fisher tables and they appear to be at least 30 years old. I don't think this company was in business too long

    I've never really thought about it.. But your post reminded me... Now I get them confused, but Ben Franklin, or Thomas Edison (dont ask, I dunno why I confuse them) But I believe I remember hearing that one of them had a pool table in their basement in times when pool was illegal... Wouldn't it be neat to see that table now.. Or some of the other tables owned by historic people. I know pool was a game played by kings a long time ago.. Maybe some of those tables?

    Does anyone know, I'm guessing Skor or Rick may, of a site accounting some of the famous tables, players, and other equipment related to the game?

    Audiopro, I think you are talking about Thomas Jefferson, who had a pool table installed in a hidden room in the dome at Monticello.

    Default Fischer tables - Date coding

    Fisher mfg was sold to Questor (division of Spalding) and ceased manufacturing Under Fischer name in late seventies. Underneath the top (most were one piece marble) on the ball end will be a stenciled mfg date after Fischer co name. mine states:

    Fischer 7 72
    2358 2638 xxxx xxxx (s/n)
    Marble
    Ball Spot this end


    other end states (on decal):

    Genuine Marble
    Guaranteed not to Warp
    Fischer Mfg. Co.
    Tipton, Mo.
