Another pool table recover and what a mess under the cloth , you could see a ball rolling down the cushion turning off very bad , the culprit was over spray by cowboy Pool table recoverer .
I always use spread Contact adhesive , and apply it with a toothed glue Comb , I never go anywhere near the playing area with glue .
As you can see from the two photo’s above the spray on glue is proud of the slate and well in front of the cushion overhang
A ball will be rolling all over the place when it has to go over this , why do they use it ….SPEED you get what you pay for ,
they maybe £10 to £20 lower priced than GCL Billiards Quote but this is the result , they take around 1hour sometimes even less to recover a pool table , sometimes just Exchange old cushions allready recovered over and then a quick spray on with the glue and bond the cloth on , 15 minutes to cover a slate bed !
The finished table a DPT Ascot .
they are too busy trying to break records to see how many tables they can recover in a day , They are not going to do a good job
I sanded most of the glue down and then used Acetone to remove the most stubborn , before completing the recover , the slate will have no foreign muck under the cloth for the ball to
roll off now .
another job I did few weeks ago showing Acetone being used to remove Glue over-spray , just look at the old glue being removed ,
if this was not done would the ball suddenly stop when approaching the pocket slate fall ?
And the outcome would be an expensive recover that is not right and they always say when we are in the area to put it right ….don’t get caught out !
Use GCL Billiards as the first choice , we only do two tables a day one in the morning one in the afternoon or three if in the same room and we offer discount’s for multiple table recovering.
