  • level a table

    I got three simple questions if someone can help me please...

    1
    Can a snooker table be levelled with the cloth on?
    2
    Could it be done by a novice?
    3
    What tools would I need?

    Thanks in advance

    1) only approximately. the cloth allows for too much inconsistency with an engineers level. even a small push down on one side of the level or cloth inconsistency is enough for improper measurements.
    2) yes, but it will take time, trial and error and because of 1) you might not be happy in the end anyway
    3) a proper engineers level, spacers to put under the legs.

        I prefer a digital level rather than a spirit level as Eddie shows in his You Tube clip

        Check your leg bottoms, you may need a spanner to fit if they are tight otherwise just wind them down/up
        If its a first time set up then the table will need to be re-leveled after a few weeks of "settling time" especially if its on carpet.

                  depends on the manufacturer

                    True, but it just makes life a pain if you have to find packers to put under the legs though, especially if your chasing .5mm or less. Much easier with threaded feet

                      Isn't this why beer mats were invented?

                        would advise against beer mats as they will compress under the weight over time. especially if you have to fill in a larger gap.

                          thanks guys, I might give it a go or just hang on till the table gets recovered. I think I can just about live with it for now, my fear would be making it worse.

                            Thanks for the link, although it's not a snooker table there is some useful tips in there, I just wish all tables had wind up leg.

                              I would leave it to the pros. World Snooker Services has just re level and re coverd mine, took the guy 4 hours. Worth the spend IMO. He did a bit of filling and sanding on the slates at the joint too, completed a cracking job..
