Another 7ft pool table re-cloth at the Bell Inn Sawley in Hainsworth Precision .

Local work for me in my home town of Long Eaton and Sawley
Bought new from GCL billiards this Supreme Winner in Black Pearl , and re-clothed every 6 months means this table is very well kept .

This time Ross went for Hainsworth Precision , the Fastest wool nap cloth you can buy .
not known for its wear qualities but Players will love its speed and accuracy , hence why it is named PRECISION .
and this table gets a re-cloth every 6 months anyway so long lasting thick slow cloth is not required at this pub who put their pool players first .

The Bell Inn Sawley , well kept and run pub and a good selection of ales .

8ft Brunswick American pool table Re-cloth in Hainsworth Cadet Blue Elite Pro .

I have been up to Derbyshire this week near Matlock to a Holiday let .
I do a few Holiday let pool and snooker tables around Derbyshire .
this table was a very nice Brunswick Metro Model in 8ft form , rare as most are sold as a 9ft .

Sleek modern design with silver trim in  a Beech effect wood .
Note the matching cue rack .

Table was stripped down cushions off and every staple taken out ,
a sign of quality work from any firm is to see they have taken every old staple out on strip down .
Slates cleaned off check slate joints and level .
Also check that all frame bolts have not come loose .

Laying the cloth on the table to show it is a branded Hainsworth Elite pro speed cloth … Made in the UK

Close up of the Brand name and MADE IN ENGLAND .
We use as much Made in the UK materials as is possible before we have to go down the far east or Euro route for spares .
It is fallacy that that other Good brand Euro made cloths are better , I have been fitting cloth for 45 years and our own made in the UK brands are market leaders .
and shows that firms that use these cloths are firms to be trusted .
This cloth is Worsted cloth , and is made up from 70% wool and 30% man made fibres for longer life span , with no nap for speed .
a hard wearing cloth and not easy to0 rip so in a situation of a holiday let you can be assured it will take some rough treatment .

Cushions stripped and re-clothed .

Cadet Blue is a very nice shade of blue , in fact this is the first time I have used this colour in Hainsworth Elite pro
my client says it is very close to Cornflower blue .
I have used Hainsworth Elite pro American speed cloth on pool tables many times
and can confirm it has excellent playing and long life qualities .
You can choose from a good selection of colours , but this Cadet blue is now my favourite colour .

as for the holiday let if you are interested  then you can book on this web site

Two full size Re-cloth plus pool table in peak district near Buxton

Last two days working at Sterndale Social club up near Buxton in the Peak district , re-cloth two full size in Strachan 6811 tournament and one pool table in Strachan 6811 pool .
and fit new leathers nets and ball rails .
the cloth on the snooker tables that I removed was low cost 777 pool cloth , not designed to go on a full size table and it lasted 20 years 😲 it was very slow , the tables are old ,
the John Stevens top plate model table is pre 1890 and the Riley one is around 1920 , they have two old life pool scoreboards that really could do with a bit of work on them , and a nice rotating period cue rack too .
Been a good two days but no phone network up there so it you been trying to contact me that is the reason I have not answered you .
The old Hazel grove super league pool table 1970s model , I replaced the old cam fixings for the cushions with bolts and half moon adaptors , nice and tight cushions now .





Re-cloth of Snooker and Pool tables at Local Club .

I have Visited one of  our local  clubs the soldiers & Sailors Club Long Eaton .
to carry out a full size snooker table re-cloth in Strachan 6811 tournament 30 oz cloth

and also to re-cloth in super fine napped  wool cloth
in Hainsworth Precision , which is probably the fastest and most accurate napped wool cloth you could buy .

many thanks to Collette and Pete who have showed faith in repeat work with GCL billiards .
As some of you may know my back has been very painful this last month or so and I had to stop lifting heavy items for a while  , I am finding it easing up now and I have free movement
as long as I wear a support belt , so I am resuming Snooker table dismantles and relocations , but only from Ground floor to Ground floor locations
no stairs or more than one or two steps that can be ramped .
