When out pool table recovering Simply Pool and Snooker often come across pool tables which have been repaired by extremely bad fitters. We take care in our work and so do ninety nine percent of other tradesmen within the industry.
Last week Simply Pool and Snooker were called out to repair and recover a supreme winner seven foot mahogany pool table at a college in Central London. On arrival we noticed that the rubbers on the cushions had gone hard which is quite common due to a certain type of rubber used a few years ago, which has all been rectified in recent years. We always carry spare cushions in the van and advised the customer to have these rubbers replaced prior to pool table recovers taking place.
On commencing the work we noticed that each cushion was held on by two fixings rather than the correct amount of three. Each cushion was tight at either end but not in the middle. This would have meant that the ball hitting the cushion would not have responded correctly. Once the cushions were removed I noticed the previous fitting company had used cushions from another manufacturers pool table. All of this means that however long the pool table was in this condition, the students playing the table were not getting the full benefit and enjoyment when playing pool.
The rubbers were replaced prior to carrying out the pool table recovering, making sure that the correct amount of cushion fixings were used. All the ball runs are checked and finally the pool table is re-levelled.
