Your Quick And Easy Guide To Leveling Your Pool Table

One of the most important and critical characteristics of a pool table is that it should always be in the right level. If your billiard table is not level, the balls will not roll evenly across the table and may affect how people play a game on your table. Keep in mind that one of the keys to an accurate billiard shot is a level table. This is why you need to always ensure your table is level. Determining whether your table is level or not and adjusting it to the right level doesn’t require any special tools or skills. This can be easily done in just a few seconds and with basic items that can be found in a home improvement or hardware store – if you don’t already have them in your home. Here are some tips to help you determine whether or not your pool table is level: Use a carpenter’s level to test whether the table is in the right level and balance. For best results, set the carpenter’s level on all four sides of the table. This will help you identify which leg is not in the right height, making your table uneven. Before doing anything to adjust the level of your billiards table, you might want to consult your owner’s manual to get to know your table better. It is important that you know what kind of pool table you have – whether it has metal plates or adjustable plates – as this will help you in getting it back to the right level. If your pool table uses metal plates for its...

Moving a Pool/Billiard Table

How To Move a Billiard Table Whether you are moving across town or across the country, moving is never an easy task.  When you have a billiard table it becomes even more complex.  Many people will pack their items themselves and then hire a couple of guys with a truck to move their belongings.  This can be a very costly experience if you are moving a billiard table.  Replacing the slate top or ending up with a table that can’t be balanced is a real nightmare. Elko Spas, Billiards and Pools can handle this delicate process for you.  They can take down the billiard table and prepare it for a move across the country or they can reassemble the table at your new home locally. What is involved in moving a billiard table? If the pockets of your table have staples they need to be removed and each pocket must be marked as to its position.  This is a delicate process to ensure that the covering is not damaged.  If you attempt this yourself you will want to wear safety glasses and gloves and use a drill to remove the staples. Remove the screws from all side rails and mark the rails to ensure proper placement when reassembled. It is often necessary to remove the felt from the slate.  This will ensure a safer move of the slate itself.  This process will require that the felt be replaced when the table is reassembled which is a service that Elko can provide.  If the slate is covered with wax, as in the case with some billiard tables, the wax will...
