We have had an influx of work coming in from Leicestershire . this shows our recent push for work in this county is paying off , most of the work has come from recommendations which is the best way of getting noticed .
Two pool tables last week and now another one to do in Wigston a repeat customer from 1 year ago .
they may be older type tables and some have cushion problems , but we can refurbish both cloth and cushions .
the first we did last week was a Traditional Super League with old type cushion barrel screw fixings .
not a good way of fixing cushions on and they will have to be replaced next time with allen key bolt fixings .
The table when stripped down showed the usual thing of spray on glue all over the face side of the slate from a speed fitter who recovered it last time .
This table was really bad in that several layers of glue had been applied over and over again as each re-cover had been done , acetone would not remove it , so i used goo old fashioned elbow grease and some coarse sand paper to make sure the pocket opening where free of glue under the cloth .
A close look of the spray on glue , what a mess !
Having cleaned the slate and stripped the cushions of every staple , we used best quality Strachan 6811 grade pool cloth to recover , the club has Pool team and they wanted the best quality cloth than the standard Strachan 777 .
the Table almost finished , we also cleaned all the ball rails and the side door tipping mech also cleaned up springs re-attached and sprayed coin mech with WD40
The next table was in an old out building being used as a garage in a Victorian house , there where some very large spiders in this table and the cloth was all moth eaten , I hate spiders !
The Pool table struipped down , it may be an old bench leg table but it plays well when it was finished .
The owner of this table wanted the budget cloth with longer nap ,although we call it our budget cloth it still has the Strachan name to it , but is the 777 grade .
This is slower than the Strachan 6811 and has a longer nap and is better for children as it will stand up to a bit more wear , but do not expect a fast table when this is used.
The finished table , both customers where highly delighted with work GCL Billiards had carried out
