We arrived and quickly dismantled the table and loaded it onto our van , fully taking care in wrapping every polished part so no damage could occur to the table , the rise and fall lifters where also numbered
it is important to keep each rise and fall lifter in order so that they go back on the table in the same place , as they are made from brass and wear into the other part of the lifter .
You will then have a more smooth action rise and fall system rather than one that sticks .

the cushions we noticed where a little loose on this table , and we have found that the manufacturer /installer has missed some screws out , a rather large amount of screws , also the way the under screwing of the cushions was done is a little to be desired , so we have suggested on the next re-cover that we re-drill new location holes for the cushions , thus we will then make a much better job of the cushion fixing and a better bounce from the cushion’s.
a firm cushion is a must on any cue sports table . but in order to do this work we have to re-drill through the edge of the slate and the old bed cloth will have to come off for this .
If the manufacturer /supplier of this table reads this,Hang your head in shame , this table was not fitted correctly on it’s first installation.
