10ft light Oak Birmingham billiards snooker table for sale @ just £500 BARGAIN !

We have a client who wishes to sell their nice looking Birmingham billiards 10ft table
The table will require 4 adjustable slate supports brackets and support beams modification as this is something that Birmingham billiards often miss out .
They should fit them but they just do not for some reason .
If you have GCL billiards quote to move the table for you and employ them , we can also arrange to have these fitted at extra cost
The table itself is £500 as it is on site , any dismantle loading removal delivery unloading setting up and modifications work , will be charged extra , please get in touch with GCL billiards for a quote to do this .
The £500 asking price is a very good price for one of these .
Originally this table would be around £3000 to £3500 when new ., and the owner did say they paid £3300 for it .

The table is situated in Ettington near Stratford on Avon .

the 10ft table comes with the lights and matching scoreboard , cue rack cues and balls .
Both snooker and pool ball sets .

the spots on the table is the reflection of the light bulbs , these lights do this and I do not really recommend these type of lights for tables , best to use twin tube or LED panel lighting .
but it may be a simple change of bulbs from clear glass to frosted ones to sort the spot problem out .

as you can see the cloth is pretty decent and has some life left in it , so this will save you a re-cover
Nest and leathers are as new and the light Oak wood work is really good condition too .

Photo close up from one end .

Cloth has a few stab marks , but in my opinion is OK for a year or so as it has plenty of nap left on it ,
it will of course brush and iron up better when refitted .
Or if you prefer pay extra and have it re-covered with brand new cloth .

As stated all removal and delivery and set up costing is separate from the £500 asking price .

6ft set height Riley Billiard table with Hard top for sale . £350 Bargain !

Here we have a table for sale that resembles a Riley diner but does not have the raise and fall operation .
it comes with chairs and table top .
The top in my opinion is a three leaf extender top from a  normal 1930 /1950s dining table stained and polished to match or it was good match to start with .
and with use has blended in the same patina as the Chairs .
The 6ft Riley table is circa 1910 to 1920 , it has the brass domed coffin screws in the cushions that gives me an idea of date it was manufactured .
Sturdy 6ft table for snooker or pool .
we value the table the top and chairs at £350 which is a good come and buy me price , collection is North London .
you will require a small medium van transit sized or a large VOLVO type Estate car , the legs unbolt form the lower frame .
but with the Chairs the Van is the better option .

The table with the top off and chairs put to one side .
you can see the brass domed coffin screws in the cushions , and yes these type of screws where used in the coffin industry to screw the top of the coffin down .
Typical Riley turned leg for this early  period , with brass top pocket plates with leather strip inserts to the face , we normally advise  a set of top plate leathers on these when it would be due some re-cover work .
But for now it is very presentable .
you will find you may require cushions on the chairs if you use it for a dining table as this table has no high low adjustment for dining height .
We have to be very Honest when advertising tables so I like to make aware of the fact that this table is a normal height playing table and not a raise and fall Riley diner .
which would be priced around £1000 to £1500 in this state of Honest  used play without chairs   , so at just £350 with chairs  it would be a good alternative.
and for comparison here is a Riley Diner raise and fall system and table , so you fully understand the difference of the two tables .

the table for sale does not have this raise and fall system

This Barley twist Riley diner is worth around £2500 to £3000 without chairs in this fully renovated condition as it is a rare to find model  ,
as you can see at £350 our clients table offers good alternative value .

the table top on
The chairs have some Barley twist design going on with the legs and the two end chairs having barley twist back and finials ,
I would say they are a matching set of chairs with the end chairs being the more decorative for the hosts of a dinner evening . typical of a set sold at many household clearance sales .
The chairs are Not high value but a nice touch to include in the package .
the chairs I would say would be the same age as the table top , 1930 /1950s .
altogether an attractive come and get me package for just £350. buyer collects from North London , close to Queens Park Tube Station ,
I will pass on any inquiries to the seller , and give your details to him .

Single sections of snooker slate slabs for sale £60 each buyer to collect from near junction 25 of M1…will help loading

Now and again I have to recycle a few full size snooker tables
Most of which go to a reclaim yard but I have now decided to sell a few now and again .
Uses are flooring patio and counter top or table work surface if sealed .
Some even use them as Garden paths .
Image result for photo of log burner on snooker slate
But once cut and trimmed down , most use them as hearths for log burners or inglenook lining and hearth , the slate acts as a good heat retainer and heat storage .
Much like a storage heater giving off heat after the fire has gone out heat will come out of the slate ,  if you line all around the sides and back of above fire place too .

At this moment in time I have a full set ( 5 ) of Welsh slates on my driveway and they are for sale at £60 each or £250 for the lot of Five ….no offers
first come first served …. I wish to move them quick hence low price of £60 a slab ….
check what others are selling them at  and most of them are soft italian slate not good old welsh slate like this set .
WELSH SLATE OFTEN SELLS FOR AROUND £150 per section some even as high as £175 if you look on ebay
buyer to load ….. I will help load but bring three  with you if possible .

Easy load up , if possible you will require a piano trolley to unload
it is much easier than carrying them .
I have a trolley to load only , you cannot take the trolley with you .


some have pockets cut into them , but slate is easy to cut and even put an edge on like applying a  good hard cutting bull nose router bit to the edge .

Welsh slate is a bit darker and denser to the modern Italian slate and more sought after .
most welsh slates come form very old pre 1900 to 1960s tables and are nominal 2 inch thick .

Over the years I have recycled hundreds of these slates .

5 slates will go onto a van with a 1.2 ton carrying capacity , and 1 ton back axle limit
my van carries over 1.6kg and is a Vauxhall movano MWB M-Roof
the slates weigh I ton for all 5 or 200kg each .

For sale Newark Cue sports club… Great opportunity for right minded person £69.995+SAV

Here we have an ESTABLISHED  snooker club for sale , now re-modified over the years to become a Cue sports club .
Newark cue club established for around 15 years now .
3 full size snooker tables 7 supreme winner green badges latest edition 7×4  , and a Chinese black ball 9 x 4.6 pool /snooker table .
A bar and kitchen area , ladies and gents toilets and two further rooms for office / meeting rooms  or adding further tables too .
This club has been run by the current owner ( Jules )  for all that time , developing a good membership of around 400 .
own pool league established and well run .

Since this photo Jules has replaced around 5 of the pool  tables for latest up to date supreme winner models , so dedicated is he to keep his club as the best around Newark and Nottingham and Lincolnshire borders .
No direct competition in Newark as no other cue clubs around , just the local conservative club with snooker tables but nothing that could be described as direct competition .
you would have to travel to Lincoln or Nottingham or Grantham  before you see direct competition against this club .
GCL billiards  have maintained the tables here for some time now and before this at another club he was involved with
Jules keeps the tables maintained to a high standard , some may say to a very high standard due to the fact that he himself plays pool to a high standard and used to be useful on a full size snooker table too .

and through experience of maintaining all cue sports tables for over 42 years ,
Club Owner  players do make the best owners of a cue sports club as they go over the top in keeping their tables playing well .
the club would suit a Man and Wife team with a couple of part time staff , although you could run it with staff fully if required .
This Club  could be a little gold mine for the right person’s willing to keep  to the high standards that Jules and his wife have met ,   their son Max has honed  his skills to also become a prominent pool player to England status .
At the moment Jules is having 90% of the tables re-covered , so come this winter when the club reaches it’s peak earning capacity , any new owner will not have huge bill for table maintenance
all three full size are in for new cloth as is around 6 of the pool tables , the 7th pool table is good and the Chinese 9 ball  is playing very well and should be ok for at least 12 months before any re-cover is required .

GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE TAKINGS and make even more profit .
Selling due to Jules main business commitments taking more of his time up ,  so the club reluctantly has to go .

ERIC CLAPTON’S old 3/4 size snooker table for sale (9ft x 4ft 6 inch)

I have for sale a much cherished 3/4 sized snooker table that Eric Clapton gave his ex wife Pattie Boyd when she was setting up a new home.  The table once stood at Eric’s house and studio named Hurtwood Edge in surrey and some serious rock gods have played on this table – Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, The Stones, The Beatles etc.  If the table could tell a story of the wild parties that are well documented in Erics and Pattie’s autobiographies!

Hurtwood Edge, Eric’s country home in surrey where he also had a studio and where the table originaly came from before Pattie sold it to me.
Pattie was also married to George Harrison and the song Layla and wonderfull tonight was penned by Eric who wooed her away from George. but they remained good friends .

The table is a 9ft by 4ft 6 inch, a true 3/4 sized table.  These tables hold their value as they are sought after due to them not being full size ,there are houses with enough room to house a 3/4 sized table where a full size table would be too large so they are much sought after and are thin on the ground unlike full size tables.

The table is a Palmer & sons circa 1900 so just over 100 years old and is mahogany with 6 turned legs.  I did not take photo of it when it was up, but will take some of the legs and end cushion name plate.  I will rerubber the table, recover it, and put new nets and leathers on.  If the new owner would like a full repolish then that is down to them, but I could get this done for an additional cost.  I would rather keep it as it is with its original polish and a few marks here and there just as it stood in Hurtwood Edge.

I have a signed provenance from Pattie Boyd that the table was from Hurtwood edge and owned by Eric.  Eric recently sold all of his Guitars in the famous Crossroads auction and many of these where priced at way over what most people could afford. Blackie the worn out stratocaster Eric played so often getting a final bid of  $959,500 in 2004 a world record for a guitar at that time.  By comparison, in 2004 Britney Spear’s used chewing gum sold for $14,000

I am a big Clapton fan.  I have experienced the 60s and the 70s and lived through that period as a young teenager and Eric inspired me to pick up a Fender stratocaster and play in a Rock & Blue’s band myself for around 10 years , I play hank Marvin instumental’s at home now, but now and again play Bad Love and some of the Who’s classic rock theme’s.

I shall regret selling the table as I always thought I would have a games combined music room , but I have decided to sell now and invest the money into Pool table stock for the rental side of the business, as we have had many enquiries for pool table hire .

 A  fantastic piece of provenance of a Rock God who is still alive and kicking and still playing the blues and long may he live , if you have a games or music room large enough and like rock and blues , here is a centre piece for that room and a good talking point of famous ownership. I am not asking for the same amount as a John Lennon rolls royce or Elvis’s Cadilac , or Britney Spear’s used gum .

If it sells then it sells if not I still get to keep it . The table could be pallatised and shipped to the USA if fans that side of the pond would like it , but at their cost of shipping and insurance.

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

NOW SOLD AND COLLECTED .
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 .
