Cushion rubber for Bar Billiards tables
We are no longer able to supply 1/2 inch L-shaped cushion rubber in sufficient lengths for a Bar Billiards table. If you must have 1/2 inch L-shaped rubber, we sell it in snooker sets of 6 x 3 feet lengths - you can find this under the snooker spares section. It is possible to 'splice' 2 lengths of rubber together by cutting the ends diagonally and ensuring a very close contact but we do not recommend doing this unless there is no other choice.
For most tables, 5/8 inch L-shaped cushion rubber will work, even if the the table was originally fitted with 1/2 inch L-shaped rubber. We supply this in sets of 3 lengths of 6 feet which is sufficient for 1 Bar Billiards table. This is recommended for Jelkes, Bar Billiards Ltd., Padmore, Clare, Sams and other 6 x 3 feet Bar Billiards tables.
An alternative to L-shaped rubber is 3/8 x 1/4 inch rectangular section rubber. This is normally fitted to Bagatelle tables, small snooker tables and small pool tables - it may also suit certain smaller Bar Billiards table styles.
For most Bar Billiards tables, the rubber should be stuck directly on to the timber of the cushion using any high impact adhesive suitable for rubber. We have Neoprene impact adhesive which is perfect for this job. The Neoprene glue does not crystalise under the repeated impact of balls or hands so should last longer than Superglue or other adhesives found in high street shops.
