Ridgeback Bar Table Rails

Professional Edition Ridgeback rails have a thicker cushion block that is made from specially designed bonded clear poplar. This has the effect of deepening the slate shelf so that the pocket responds more like a professional table. The pocket's opening angles  and the length of each rail has been changed so that the pocket openings are similar to those of a professional table. The pocket openings for the Professional Edition Ridgebackrails are as follows:
Corner pockets: 4 1/2" jaw and 4" throat
Side Pockets: 4 3/4" jaw and 4" throat

We do not carry these rail sets but feel they are of better quality then standard replacement rail sets for bar style pool tables. Try googling Ridgeback Rails.

Keno Pool Game Boards are Back!

We just completed a new run of our popular Keno Pool Game Boards. They are available finished or unfinished (no stain or clear coat). Save $25 on an unfinished Keno Board by finishing yourself.
Keno Pool is an old time billiards game played by 2 or more players with a wooden Keno game board placed on one end of the pool table. The game dates to the early 1900's and was played in many pool rooms and billiards parlors into the 1960's. Keno pool is fun for everyone whether it be playing with the kids at home for family enjoyment or playing against friends for a beer at your favorite bar or pool room.
Keno pool is an easy game where you shoot at the numbered balls and try to make them land in the numbered holes on the Keno board. There are several ways to win and the game is suitable for 2-4 players of any skill level. Keno pool is perfect for family entertainment even for players that have never hit a ball on a pool table before so it's perfect fun for the kids as well as adults.
Game setup is simple - place the Keno board on the table, rack the balls and play! Keno pool is a fun alternative to traditional billiard games like 8 ball and 9 ball.   Order your Keno Pool Game Board Here

In olden days pool table felt was affixed to the table with tacks which eventually gave way to staples. Some cloth fitters in European countries still use tacks when installing cloth on snooker tables. Tacks and staples have given way to glue - more specifically contact adhesive. The advantages of glue are getting complete adhesion of the cloth to the slate edge and you don't bomb out the wood slate liner with tack/staple holes since the cloth adheres to the slate, not the liner. The glue used by professionals is 3M-10 Scotchweld. It's not cheap but works great and actually permits relatively easy removal of cloth from the slate when it's time to recover your table. If you decide to try it make sure to read the instructions and allow the glue to dry before adhering the cloth to the slate.

Helpful Info on Recovering Your Pool Table

There are 2 types of pocket pool tables which are the bar style (coin-op) 1-piece slate pool table and the standard home or commercial style 3-piece slate pool table. On bar style tables many owners have trouble recovering the rails with new pool table felt cloth since the rails are different then those found on a standard or commercial style table.

We made a short video on recovering bar style pool table rails which should help. Regardless of the type of pool table it's important to note that the new pool table felt should be pulled tight but not overstretched on the rails. Overstretching will usually result in dimples in the rubber cushion.

When it comes to installing pool table felt on the slate we particularly like the Diamond pool table recovering video part 1 and part 2. This method is useful whether you have a 1-piece or 3-piece slate pool table. The glue used in this video is 3M-10 Scotchweld which is available here. Although some tables can be stapled we've found that glue gives much better results.

A word on Stretch Index. When installing pool table felt on the slate always adhere the felt to the slate on 1 long side of the table first. Then go to the other side, stretch the cloth to the max between the side and either end pocket and make a small mark on the felt cloth at the top edge of the slate. Let go of the felt and take a measurement from the opposite edge of the slate back to your mark. Add a 1/2" to this measurement and this figure is your stretch index. Now mark the cloth in several places along the long side of the uninstalled cloth. Use a straightedge to draw a line across your marks. Now when you start installing this side of the felt cloth you stretch the cloth so your line is pulled to this edge of the slate. This assures that your felt cloth is stretched evenly from side to side.
