Rilet Aristocrat NOW SOLD £2000

NOW SOLD !

A 1987 Riley installed table, this table was brand new when installed, so has only had one careful home owner, never been used in a club and therefore is as mint as you will find one.  The last one that came along in this condition sold straight away.

PLEASE NOTE THIS TABLE HAS STANDARD CUSHIONS AND NOT STEEL BLOCK TYPE.
IT HAS HARD WOOD CUSHIONS WHICH ARE VERY GOOD FOR BOUNCE AND ALMOST AS GOOD AS STEEL BLOCK REBOUND

The table is not as dark as this photo, look at the next photo for a true colour and wood grain.

The table has all the accessories required to play the game and to maintain the cloth in perfect condition.  The iron will be sold with the table if the seller receives the asking price which will be negotiated with the seller.  GCL BILLIARDS is only passing information on about the table, we would however like to be involved with the dismantling and setting up of the table as our reward for pairing the seller and the buyer together.

GCL Billiards has not inspected the table at first hand, but know of the family that the table is coming from and one of the brothers is a well known figure in snooker circles in the Nottingham area and beyond.

If the buyer chooses, a time served billiards fitter could be sent out to check over the table to be double sure it is 100%.  Things like cushion bounce, slate trueness and condition of polish etc can all be scrutinised by a profesional eye (allthough the photos confirm the condition).  There will be a cost to this service though to cover travel and time.

I do know that when the table was purchased new it cost over £4500.  The seller is looking for £2000 or offers in that region.  This does not include the dismantle and set up or any transportation costs, as previously stated they are willing to listen to sensible offers.

I am linking the blog for this advert to www.thesnookerforum.com in the tables section as this will help widen the search for a buyer for the table.

GCL Billiards do not charge a commission for the service of advertising client’s tables, all we ask is that you would consider us for the work of removal, delivery and set up of the table.  We are fully professional and have over 37 years personal experience in the art of billiards fitting.with many personal testimonials.

Another Satisfied Customer and a 64 Break + Baulk line marking info

Today I have recovered a very nice light oak Riley Aristocrat.  This table is used by many of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire’s top players.  The table can only be described as mint condition and is a joy to work on.

STEVE B’s mint Riley Aristocrat in OAK , a very nice table to work on.

After I recoverd the table in 6811 TOURNAMENT cloth by STRACHAN, I received the following text on my phone from the happy owner:

WELL HAPPY. HAD A 64 BREAK IN MY 2ND FRAME!
4TH HIGHEST BREAK EVER

This table will only get better the more it is played on.  It was rerubbered last year with Northern rubber and the new cloth will after a while speed up.  When a new cloth is fitted to a table it is at it’s slowest as the nap is at full length and the cushions are restricted by tight cloth being just applied to the cushions.  When the cushion cloth slackens off, the rubber will be free to rebound the ball at a faster pace.  This will take around 2 to 3 weeks of play.

The old cloth had a baulk line marked out in white tippex.  Although this looks good as the TV tables have this, it is only for the camera’s to pick up on TV.  By using a soft lead black pencil, the baulk line will fade.  In 6 months to a year the cloth can be restretched and the old black lead pencil line can be removed with acetone, without the fear of having two white lines, as the tippex is very hard to get off a cloth once it has been put on.

I always recommend the black pencil baulk line over the white tippex pen, but it is down to the customer what they require and I will put on whatever they want.
