Today a nice little job over in Long Bennington in Lincolnshire for our client who works in the high class sound system and TV industry for Bang and Olufsen. He certainly knows quality when he sees it and he was very satisfied with our workmanship in making his pool table play like new again.
Re-rubber the cushions on site with good black rubber after removing the old hard pink red rubber. The table being a thinline Supreme table 7×4 ft in cherry finish. One of the cushions was as hard as rock, no bounce at all, yet the other 5 were good. But it is always best to re-rubber the whole 6 cushions. Doing just one is false economy as the others are not far behind in going rock hard too.
Below the Pool table after strip down of cushions.
Note my cardboard template far right on the next photo, that I made of the cushion pocket angles before removing the old rubber. A simple job of then using this to trace around the exact angle onto the new rubber as Heywood Supreme pool factory had supplied from new.
The last photo of the finished table. The cloth of choice by our client was the upgraded Strachan 6811 pool cloth. It has a finer nap than the strachan 777 and much better for speed of ball over the cloth too.
