The Process Of Pool Table Refelting Denver

By Lena Stephenson


A pool table is an elegant design used for indoor sports rooms and patios. The game of pool is played as a way of spending leisure time with friends and family. If the tables were to be made of materials that are durable, they can last around twenty years with less maintenance. The most vulnerable component of the structure is the felt. In consideration of pool table refelting Denver residents should know the procedure.

The felt is that fabric that is attached to the table surface. When getting to re-felt, the first thing to do is determine the size of the table through the use of a measure tape. There is then replacement of the felt either at a home improvement depot or sports shop. During the purchase, there should be an extra 12 inches to its length and width. Since there are lots of color options, you will need to decide whether to use the same color or have a different one.

The rails should be removed after that. This is done using a crescent wrench. Bolts attaching the rails are removed. Usually, the rails are also covered by the felt so they will need to be re-felted as well. The rails will then need to be carefully set on the floor close to its position in the table so that a mistake will not be made of attaching the rail to the wrong side.

The felt to be replaced is removed by using a staple remover to pull out staples at the edge of the felt. It will be essential to ensure that all felt is removed from the top of the table. The old one can be placed on a thrash bag from where it can be disposed of later.

The new felt needs to be carefully placed while taking care to inspect that no damaged are done and that there are no stains. A sharp scissor should then be used to cut it, using the border of the table to guide you. Some felt is left over to be used to re-felt the rails.

After making the cut, a stapler is used to attach the felt to the top of the table. Stapling begins at the mid points of one end of the felt then proceeds to the left and right edges. When this is done, you proceed to the other end to pull the felt tightly. It then gets stapled like was done in the previous case.

The edges then get stapled. It is important to ensure that the staples are placed at an equal distance from each other and that they are lined correctly. When it comes to the pockets, there should be cutting of 3 slits on each of them before wrapping and stapling of the felt on the pocket edges. It is then pulled tightly before being stapled.

Finally, the structure is reassembled. Rails will be attached to their original positions using a crescent wrench. The pocket lines are inserted and the table is ready for use.
