8ft Karnehm and Hillman snooker table for sale … NOW SOLD

as from March 6th 2018


We have a client who wishes to sell their 8ft three section slate bed with bolted into slate cushion and 6 legs Snooker table
offers around £500 is what he is looking for .
Aylesbury area is the location of the table .
the table looks like it could do with a re-cover and maybe new set of pockets nets and leathers to bring up to date .
I can vouch that K&H is a very good make , one alteration i would recommend is that it is fitted with a set of adjustable slate supports as it is lacking these .

cloth faded and pockets discolored but is it is playable as it is .
and worth the money being asked .

a photo of underside , three section slate but could do with  some adjustable slate supports to make much better for keeping level .

this is the improvement of what I mean about adjustable slate supports or muntins .
these wind up to and support the slate from sagging and recommended to have fitted if you have the table moved and set up again .

bolted cushions into slate make for a much better firmer cushion and good bounce .
this table is made just alike a full size table and build quality is very good .

New van in silver on it’s way 7th of December delivery day .


Due to new van arriving every 4 years we are now looking to sell our 3500 125ps L2 H2 van with cruise control .
Having just turned over 60.000 miles this was the miles that I had in mind when I would look to buy a new van , not that there is anything wrong with our van it is just as a business we intend to change the van every 4 years around the 60.000 mile range to keep our image up and reliability risk at a lower level .
it is just good business to do this and of course offset the van against tax where applicable .
the van has a service history and recently 2 new front tyres fitted .
it has been very well cared for . Never been overworked or over loaded , never been thrashed always kept at cruising speed on motorways of 70mph with rev counter bang on 2000 revs and always try and keep it around those rev limits , 5000 is red line limit and never taken over 3000 on change down revs  .
we do have another second vehicle ( Car ) so this has helped keep miles low on this van , making it  a good buy for a set up business or just a good buy for an established one .

the private plate is not going with the van and will be transferred to new van .
as an optional extra and because it gives my right foot a rest , I had Cruise control fitted as a after thought at an extra cost of around £400 .
The van takes a payload just over 1600kg , and although I do move snooker tables around the UK , this van only does this at a rate of 2 a month if that .
it mainly is used just to carry my tools around and a good sign advert when out and about , and knowing that I do have the capability of moving the odd snooker or pool table’s around .

as you can see it takes a complete set of slates and on this load 2 sets of cushions 12 legs 2 sides and in fact two whole snooker frames dismantled
plus 2 shades , this was being stored at a council yard for a council run leisure center , and even with me in the drivers seat this only came to 1450kg
well under the limit of 1600kg capacity .
The van is ply lined and if you look closely it even has the original Factory check list paper stuck to the bulk head , I never took it off from 2013 .
the van also has the mid range 125ps engine so not the low under powered 100ps  one , or the high powered 160ps with lower  MPG use one , this is the mid range 125 ps engine and the one most Van magazines say go for .
6 speed manual box around  35 mpg average  , Air con , Hands free phone bluetooth connection , Electric Windows , electric heated mirrors . two 12 volt charger sockets . Reversing warning sensors ,  Fold down center seat for table use and cup holders  , three seats ,
fabric is in good condition no wear or split seating that you find with many of these trade use vans , in fact passenger seats hardly used .

I of course had the van sign wrapped , this can be taken off by any buyer or leave it on if in the same trade and just put your firms details over the GCL Billiards parts and phone numbers changed
the van has one slight dent to the top of the rear door as can be seen in this photo above , this caused by hitting the gutter clip above my garage when reversing , the reversing sensors are at bumper level .

the van easily carries three Supreme pool tables and maybe could take a 4th

An older welsh slated table has slightly more heavy slates than the softer Italian slates , so you have to slide the sates more to the bulk head .
Easy to do with 2 inch over lap of slates so you do not trap your fingers , a roller and the wheels upside down to wheel them to the rear ( as in photo )
this table with two men and full tank of fuel and tools and trolley is approaching the capacity 1600kg .
I did my home work when buying a van and this is the best one size wise the L2 H2 for carrying Snooker tables .
the longer wheelbase you come down to 1530kg , you have to put the long table plank  sides ,  on the side above the wheel arch at an angle as you can see int his photo above ., and being as it is the H2 height van you can stand up in it , I am am 6ft 2 inch .
What makes this van attractive to most private buyers of small firms is that  I paid the vat when new and lost that in full and that cost me over £3000 loss  , and I am not vat registered so no vat will be added to this sale .
Look around the country on web sites and Ebay for the same spec and year June 2013 , same miles of 60.000 ( with cruise control ) and you will see they do fetch this sort of money up to £8000 PLUS VAT and that around £1500 to  £1600 saving , if you find a vat free one like this that has been looked after .
I have had a quick look on Ebay and there are two lower priced but at 149000 miles and 129000 miles not a patch on this van at just 60.000 miles and not thrashed or worn out .
The van has an MOT to June , But I will put a full 12 months on this van if bought at selling price listed at £7495…no vat to pay .

the van has been very reliable and I have never had any breakdowns or problems that involved taking it back in
apart from a noisy vibration from the fuel pump which was changed after two weeks of picking it up new ,

this photo was taken the first day it was sign wrapped , the original plate will be back on the van for the sale .
all inquiries to Geoff at GCL billiards

Sale is strictly bank transfer or paid into account by bank checked cash before van could leave our possession .
we will not accept cash for this amount as too many false notes around !
and yes I have been caught out before with false notes .

phone numbers as on back of van above photo .


10ft Oak Birmingham billiards Snooker table for sale …. Solihull NOW SOLD !

SOLD ….Moving Monday 5th February 2018


We have a client wishing to free space up for other purpose .
and the only solution is to sell his very nice Oak 10ft by 5ft Snooker table with hard cover top included .

as you can see the table comes with a sectional matching oak table top .
with the correct higher than normal chairs this could be used as a dining table ?

from the photo’s supplied by our client the cloth and table looks as new as the day it was fitted .

Solid oak frame and cushions , in light oak , this table will fit well into a modern home
the room required would have to be 20 foot by 15 foot .
This is the nearest size to a full size 12 foot table and one that is sought after if you cannot fit a 12 foot in then this  is the next best option .
Full size balls and full size pockets , just two foot shorter and 1 foot less on width .
I must point out that I know that Birmingham billiard usually miss out the adjustable slate bearers on many of their tables even full size .
please read about adjustable slate bearers or Muntins by searching on my web site for them , this will explain why they must be fitted .below is a Birmingham billiard full size table where they missed out the adjustable bearers and I retro fitted some in .

now this 10ft table also has no center support bearers under the slate beds
this can be easily be sorted if you bought the table and had GCL billiards relocate the table for you , and we are always improving tables by fitting these adjusters and new support beams to rectify slate sagging , a common problem on modern tables .
As can be seen in these photo’s we have fitted many adjustable brackets and beams to help keep the slates playing true without the risk of slate dipping through lack of support .

if you required a price for moving this table then please get in touch with Geoff at GCL billiards who would be happy to quote not only for a relocation but also the added costs of fitting adjustable slate bearers and adjusting brackets .
My client at this moment in time is looking for offers for this table .
I have given him a figure that I think he should accept but that is for any buyer to talk to the seller about,  and thrash a price out between them selves , all tables on this web site are private sales,
GCL Billiards do not own the table , we just advertise them for the selling client to try and find a buyer who just may choose GCL Billiards expert workmanship to relocate this very attractive oak 10ft table .
there is no middle men fees to the buyer , you are buying direct from the seller .
