Here at simply pool and snooker we supply an excellent pool table recovering service.
Last week a customer asked if we could carry out a pool table recover in blue cloth. We also supply various colours and logo cloths are available at an extra cost. As long as the image is on Jpeg or PDF and does not encroach on copyrights, then we can arrange to put the image onto cloth. This normally takes up to 3 – 4 weeks to allow for art work etc.
Once I had unpicked and stripped the old cloth from the cushions, I noticed the rubbers had come away from the wood. This has to be glued back prior to placing the new cushion strips on, otherwise the rubber can feel dead when playing off it. The rubber can also move up or down which will not give full contact with the ball in play. This can cause the ball to jump or deaden it.
The customer had approximately twenty pieces of chalk inside the table, which was all removed. This is quite common as well as toy cars etc. Infact the things I have found inside tables I could write another blog about.
With the cushions and bed cloth recovered, the table was marked out and re-levelled using an engineers precision level.
