  • Cushion bolts

    Hi! I am refurbishing my snooker table, and I am just about finished. Three of the bolts to fasten the cushions to the slates are missing.
    They are 3/8 bolts with 12 threads per inch. I am having trouble finding this dimension. Does anybody know where I can find bolts like this?
    PS I live in Norway, so they need to be shipped..

    You could message Geoff Large on tsf, he's a fitter of note.

      also Maryfield how may have bolts to fit or the info to source locally?
      have you tried any local hardware store (if you have any that is ) with one of your bolts to match?
      what table do you have?
      Up the TSF!

        Thanks. I have tried at a local hardware store, but they could not find any with 12 threads per inch. It is not common over here. The table is an "Heritage". Badge says: "Made in England by Birmingham Export Billiards"

          You may have to replace the nut studs inside the slate and fit new bolts and threaded studs , available from Peradon but you may be lucky and they fit without removal of stud , to fix back in use wax over the thread of the bolt and screw into nut , then apply body filler let set and sand flush then remove waxed bolt
          the bolte will then go in and out without fouling up on body filler .
          the slate has to be upside down to complete this task

            Thank you Geoff!
            One of the many nice members of this forum has contacted me, and he will send me bolts. Seems like the problem is solved!
