After the recent holiday break , my work load was tested to the limit
Monday travel out to near Sleaford to open up the corner pockets and service of bed cloth on a full size Burroughs and Watts Steel block cushioned table , the owner is delighted with the result of an easier table to pocket on , I am not surprised as his pocket openings where just 3.3/8th at the fall , I opened them up to 3.5/8th .
The next three days where going to be a tough one , three full size snooker tables to dismantle at Nottingham University Sports hall , these tables where upstairs and no access to a lift , I had a choice , enlist 6 men to carry the slates downstairs , use a slate slide and use 3 men , or take the easy option and use the fire escape to a flat roof and get the local groundsmen to come up with their tractor fork lift and lift the slates down for us .
No Guessing for which option was chosen !
I divided this work into three comfortable days
1st day by myself part dismantle all cushions off the tables and bubble wrap , take bed cloths off and slate linings , take cushions into storage to sort out the best space for the three tables.
2nd day take slates off the tables and place on pallet on fork lift , three sets three lifts , then load one set onto van and take into storage unload and onto forklift , repeat another two times . then re-cover one pool table in Beeston in the afternoon plus visit another site to fit a coin mech
3rd day dismantle three frames and bubble wrap all parts , bring downstairs and load onto van all three frames , take up to storage center unload and stack neatly for two years . then over to Derby for pool table re-cover.
The old sports Center is being demolished and the tables will be in store for two years , we will then take them back out of storage and reassemble them in a Brand New sports center .
Above The old Nottingham University sports hall due to be closed by the 23rd of March ready for Demolition , the three tables have gone into storage.
New Sports hall due to open in the spring of 2017 .
after the work of dismantle and store plus bubble wrap of all polished parts .
We found time to squeeze in two pool table re-covers , one of my rental stock had come up for it’s annual re-cover , we offer two options on our pool table rental schemes , offer one is one re-cover per year at £15 per week or two recovers one every 6 month for winter and summer league starts at £18.50p per week , we also give a Brand new set of Aramith tournament Match balls each year for the pool team .
And to top off Thursday we had an email for an Urgent re-cover for one of our regular Snooker club Clients , this was a large club based in Derby .
