  • Professional table levelling?

    I'm sure we've all been there as kids, levelling our six-foot tables with coffee coasters shoved under the legs, but how do the pros do it? I'm assuming the legs have adjustable feet, but this is only a guess.

    snooker tables tend not to have adjustable legs. you see disks under the foot like big coasters
    Don't know what material they are though, cardboard
    Up the TSF!

      Well I never!

      Do they also have cut down cues for when the walls get in the way?

        Plywood shims under the table legs allow the frame to be levelled where the floor is uneven before the slates go on. one less thing to correct if you know the frame is right first.

          Thanks for the confirmation.

            I think snooker tables can also be adjusted at the slate, if you know what I mean.

              only some tables have "adjustable muttons" (the cross beams) or they can be converted to this, that allows for under slate adjustment; if the table does not have this system (most) then shims are used but I think to a lesser extent than used under the feet

              If I recall what Geoff has said in the past

                      The fast and the furious,
                      The slow and labourious,
                      All of us, glorious parts of the whole!
