Faq 2: Table Dimensions
Faq 3: Table Weights
Whilst it is true that the all up weight of a full size table can exceed 1.5 tons, this weight is well spread over a large area, and on eight legs. In addition timber floors act as a raft so spreading the load even further. The result of this is that any normal floor can carry the weight of a table without problems. It follows that smaller tables are even less of a problem. However, if you are building a snooker room from new you will need to comply with your local building regulations. If you need further advice, just ask.
Faq 4: Ball Cleaning
I mean snooker balls, of course! Do not use detergents and definitely not a dishwasher, as these will fade the colours. I find car T-Cut is about the best, followed by a good wax polish. However, take care and try one ball first, and leave overnight, because there are several different types of materials used, so it is best to be on the safe side.
Faq 5: The care of tables
The Nap on
the bed-cloth of a table runs from the baulk end to the spot end. On
the cushions the direction of the nap varies according to the make of
table. The cloth is stretched tightly over the table when first
fitted, but, but its natural characteristics allow it to stretch and
in time it will become slack. When this happens it requires
re-stretching by a skilled table fitter.
Faq 6: A word of warning about cushion speed
For reasons too technical to explain here, it should be stressed that no manufacturer can guarantee that a new set of cushions will give a specified degree of speed. Nor is it necessary for players to concern themselves with the number of lengths a ball will run "when hit with maximum force". To judge a table by this test is like trying to measure the "pick-up" of a cricket bat or the "balance" of a racket by the use of scales and footrule. The only speed essential to good play is that there should be sufficient resilience in the cushions for a cue ball to travel easily round the table when a normal stroke is played.
