Where can you get slate for a billiards table?

Most pool table slate comes from Italy and is cut and milled there for pool table use. From there, it is finished at the pool table manufacturer. To purchase new slate, you need to contact a pool manufacturer and convince them to sell you the slate. Because it is not an item they intned to sell, expect it to be very costly. In addition, you will most likely be responsible for drilling the slate yourself. A better option may be to look around for a used pool table that has the slate in excellent condition. This can be found in yard and garage sales, newspaper ads, Craig's List, and eBay. This most likely will be much cheaper than buying new slate.

How do you move a pool table?

This depends upon whether you are moving it a short distance (in the room) or to a new location with a truck. Pool halls use a wheeled pool table jack to safely move tables between rooms. If you are moving to a new location and can fit the pool table through the doorway (such as in a garage) you can do this and load the table on a flatbed, no disassembly required. However, if neither of these apply to you, you will most likely have to disassemble and get it re-assembled at the new location. If it is a one piece slate, you can disassemble and re-assmble yourself, with patience. Otherwise, a professional should be called in to re-assemble, level the table, and re-felt it.

Is it necessary to have billiard table movers or can I do it myself and how do I take it apart?

Many people move their own pool tables. Pool table disassembly is easy with a good strong screwdriver and a couple wrenches. If the table has a 3 piece slate, as most 8 foot and all 9 foot do, the surface felt will simply be ripped off and thrown away. Two strong men can lift each piece of slate, and the rest of the table is easy to carry. When you get to the new location, although you can assemble, level, and surface the table yourself, few people try to do so. To be sure your pool table is perfect, a professional should be used to re-assemble.

How do you move a slate pool table?

It depends on how far you have to move it. Within a pool hall, they use a pool table jack with wheels which safely moves the table from place to place and is easy to re-level. If you are moving the table to a new location and cannot use the jack to get it through the doorway and onto a flatbed truck, you have to take it apart and will have to get the surface re-finished, including new felt. If you are able to wheel it around to move it, check for equipment rentals to rent a jack - your best option is to rent an auto transmission jack and suse som estrong boards, as you probably can't rent the pool table jack.

Are used pool tables worth the price compared to new pool tables?

Used pool tables, depending on the condition can sell for anywhere from $500-2000 dollars. A new pool table average about the same, but lack some of the characteristics of an older pool table.

How much is a pool table?

$500 to $25,000. The average person that buys a pool table purchases an 8 or 9 foot table in the US, while 7 foot tables are also available. A 1 inch slate 8 foot table, the minimum that can meet all tournament regulations, can sell new for less than $1500. That price includes installation and set-up. A 9 foot table can be purchased for almost the same price. Lower priced 8 and 9 foot tables can be found that use composite surfaces or thinner slate. These generally fail to meet minimum tournament regulations, but can be a good choice for the home. A good used 9 foot table can be purchased for $500 to $1000. The highest priced tables can be works of art, most often with 1.5 inch slate, and even 2 inch slate, and generally costing from $10,000 to $25,000.

What is the Average price of a 1 inch slate 8 foot pool table?

There is no average, but these can range in price from about $800 to $5000 for a new table. The price is misleading, because the cost to have the pool table set up by a professional will range from $250-500. If this price is included in the cost of an $800 table it is highly unlikely a pool table professional will perform the set up. The minimum price is better to consider than the average price. A low end 8 foot table will cost $1000 to $1800, so the average can be considered $1400. The 8 foot tables are nearly equal in cost to a 9 foot table.

Buying Used Pool Tables?

Pool tables are a fun addition to any home that can be the centerpiece of any game room. Buying a new pool table can be expensive, though. A new, 9ft pool table can cost over $5000 for a basic, top of the line model, with prices going upwards for more decorative woods and cloth options. One way to save money on a pool table for your home is to think about buying used pool tables. Used pool tables can be bought for a fraction of the price of new ones and are a good option for people who want to buy a pool table, but are on a budget. Most of the times, these tables are still in good condition and will last for many more years to come. One of the best sources for buying used pool tables is old pool rooms that are going out of business, moving, or renovating. Often, the owners of these establishments are looking to move their tables as quickly as possible to raise money or to make room for new equipment. These tables are generally in good condition, especially if they were located in a pool hall that holds a lot of pool league matches and tournaments, where the condition of the tables can influence matches. Another good source for buying used pool tables is right after professional pool tournaments. Many times, pool table manufacturers will provide pool tables for these pro tournaments that are only used during the event. After the tournament has concluded, these tables must be sold as used, which presents the buyer with the opportunity to buy top of the line equipment at a discounted price. When buying used pool tables, it’s important to check a few things before the purchase. First, you’ll want to inspect the condition of the slate that is under the cloth. The cloth will have to be removed for you to do so, but most understanding sellers will know this. You need to be sure that there are no chips or defects in the slate, which will affect the playability of the table. Also, inspect the condition of the rails. Make sure that they are not bumpy or crooked. If they are, they will have to be replaced, a factor that you will need to consider when tallying your budget. Finally, make sure that you are not buying a coin operated table. These tables are designed to be used with a heavier than normal cue ball, which the table returns automatically if pocketed. Regular balls will stay in the pockets until a new game is paid for, making these kinds of tables impractical for the home.

How much money can you expect to save by purchasing a used pool table instead of a new one?

It really depends on who the seller of the used pool table is and what they want for it. It also depends on the condition of the pool table (gently used vs. very used).
