Welcome to the complete recovering kit. The items in this kit will help you get your table recovered right. We stand behind everything listed. These are the same items we use to recover a pool table. Many have been tried and tested over the last twenty years. This kit has those items that will just make your job easier.
The beeswax with resin is a specifically formulated wax just sealing seams on pool tables. This type of wax will dry faster and harder than any other product available. It seals the seams perfectly. Beware of plaster as it will fill the grooves and cannot be removed once applied.
The shims are long, thin and made of hardwood. You don't want to use anything that will compress over time. Some say to use playing cards to shim the slate, but a hardwood shim will bind the slate to the base better over a long period of time. Playing cards tend to slide.
We have tried many different glues, but 3M Super 77 is the premier glue for felt-to-slate applications. This glue is equivalent to stapling. It will hold just as good for as long as you want. Even if you staple your bed cloth, you will want this glue to apply a strip of cloth to the pockets areas in order to hide the slate.
The felt has Teflon applied to the threads before it is woven. This will protect your investment against spills and stains. Our goal is to provide the best materials and information possible in regards to this kit. If you are like us, we want our table to play perfectly.
See our How-To-Guide section for recovering a pool table. These instructions offer a step by step guide on how to use all of these items.
We have added a recovering kit wizard which will ask you a few questions to ensure we get the right items for your table. You can also use this feature to customize your kit. We have Championship and Simonis cloth available. You can also upgrade to a variety of cushions like Brunswick Superspeed and Accufast.
