    Hello everybody again, I am back with some good news, I managed to get my first snooker table installed, I wanted to share some of the installation pictures with you.
    The table is Riley Renaissance 12ft
    Cloth is Strachan 6811 Tournament 30oz
    Balls are Aramith Tournament Champions 1G
    As I said before, this is my first snooker table, hope you enjoy the pictures.

        I can't get any images to show and would like to see them.

        Why not try tinypics.com or similar?

        Where are you located?

          Looks like a nice room.

          I take it that's an extension or or is it part of the main house?

                Stapled on cloths is not the correct way to fit a bed cloth to a Traditional designed billiard / snooker 5/8th tacks with heads tacked in not fully home so that future re-stretching and re-covering you can take off the bed cloth without damage and ease .
                it has been done like this the traditional way for years , the way they have fitted it is like an american pool table bed cloth .
                you may say whats the difference , as a time served billiards fitter who has to take this cloth off for a re-stretch who will be cursing that it takes 6 times longer to take off and remove every staple

                I take it that you are not in based the UK ?

                have a word with your fitters and ask them why they use staples to fit snooker bed cloths .
                there is a reason as explained why you should not .

                apart from that it looks ok .

                    Right hand click with your mouse on each image and then click open in new tab and you can see them individually.

                      Marc, what image are you talking about ?

                      Are you actually saying that you're able to see those images ?

                      Than why we can'nt see it ?
                      obviously is sumthing wrong here.

                        I live in Romania, I contacted the best company in Romania that fits snooker tables, and I did ask them about using the stapless, as I saw on youtube that most people use tacks, but they said that it doesn't make any difference, and that's how they do the work, I am sure that you are right and they are wrong. but unfortunately I didn't have a choice.

                          Thanks, it's part of the main house, at the basement floor, it's my new home in which I will be moving in 2 days.
