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 .
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 .
