Overview of Services Why use our services Many places offer similar services but their’s no comparison to the quality of work we provide. We’ve been doing this a long time and have a reputation for excellent service. Leveling We use the most expensive and the most precise machinist’s levels available to level every pool table we work on. They are 18” long Starrett brand machinist’s levels. We use 2 of them to level the frame and to level each of the 3 individual pieces of slate on top of your tables frame. You definitely won’t get that or our level of experience anywhere else. We use rubber shims under the legs to help ensure your pool table will not slide around. This also protects your flooring against potential scarring. We use 2 different types of shims for leveling underneath the slates. The type of shims we use here depends on how the table is constructed. During the leveling process we place our precision levels in 27 different positions across the tops of the 3 individual pieces of slate. We use up to 39 different leveling points underneath the slates. With the exception of the extra stubborn tables, usually only about 20 leveling points are used. We always use hardwood wedges under the slates unless the table has a detached slate liner. It is then necessary to use flat shims to ensure the best results. All these important steps determine whether or not your pool table will REMAIN level or not AFTER the work has been completed. We cannot control the settling of floors or concrete slabs due to earthquakes or just normal settling, but if you purchase a new or used pool table from us, we will re-level it once for FREE (if it is ever necessary) but only if the table has not been moved from its original position. If it’s necessary and you are out of town we will need to do that work when we are back in your area to be able to do it for free. Slate Seams We do not sand a pool tables slates, nor do we use beeswax, paraffin wax, or Bondo on them to smooth them out. First we flush them up as perfectly as possible before, during and after leveling, using the appropriate type shims for your table’s design and construction. Then we apply a special type of water putty to the seams and any slate screw holes that are in the playing area to ensure no future problems. The seams should definitely not be bonded together (as some say) with a type of glue strip. This leaves a huge gap between them that the filler can then fall out due to vibrations from simply playing on your pool table or children crawling on them. To make matters worse, there are many more earthquakes here in Oklahoma these days. It’s always best to have the least amount of gap in-between the slates as possible. Beeswax was once probably the best substance to use but times and technology have changed. Beeswax tend to expand when it gets warm and then pushes up out of the seams. Because of it’s nature it does not go back down after cooling. This leaves a ridge all across you pool table which can only be fixed by removing the fabric and then scraping the excess off. BILLIARD FABRIC / CLOTH / FELT It’s not really felt, though many call it that. Even many in this industry call it felt but it is a woven fabric, not pressed together fibers. There is a process that the fabric goes through called felting which is the shrinking and drying of the fabric after another process is performed. Regular carded wool billiard fabric is usually about 75% wool and 25% nylon. The blend percentage can vary greatly. The WORSTED wool types of fabric are much faster playing and much more expensive. Faster playing means the balls will roll much further on worsted wool as compared to most carded wool fabrics. We mostly stock heavyweight CHAMPIONSHIP INVITATIONAL style fabric which has been bathed in TEFLON to resist staining. We have approximately 35 colors of billiard fabrics available. Please Click on our Color Charts tab to see the latest. We stock our fabrics by the bolt or roll. This ensures that your fabric will not have any permanent wrinkles in it from being folded too long. Fabric that has been folded for too long will develop permanent creases that will not stretch out or ever eventually go away even if someone tries to tell you they will. Most billiard fabric suppliers stock pre-cut pieces that have been folded for several weeks at least, and sometimes months and even years pass by before they are used. This will not usually affect the pool balls roll but visual creases are not a good thing for the appearance of your pool table.
