Repairing a table can be tricky. Just because we supply spares doesn't mean you'll be able to fit them! Some people manage but the staff at our shop have never repaired or made tables and so regret that we cannot offer advice for would-be DIYers. None-the-less we have made a big effort to supply all the items that are needed for most refurbishing jobs.
Our new Bar Billiards tables are supplied either with an Essex Straight Six Coin-Op mechanism which takes normal coins or an Essex 'Banana' Token mechanism. The Straight Six mechanism can be configured for various different UK coin combinations including 'Freeplay'. Tokens allow a landlord to charge a fixed amount for each game, without having to mess about with the coin mechanism. Remember to order the tokens separately, if you choose this option.

The Supreme Bar Billiards table has an electric timer that requires a special battery pack. This is a 10 cell, 15V battery that is fairly common in Pool tables in England. It's entirely possible that these are available from billiard fitters in other countries like USA and Australia, but we don't have any details on this.

Some older tables have the part of table in front of the baulk line covered in a black synthetic material. This is called Rexine. We used to be able to obtain it but regrettably our Rexine supplier no longer exists. If you can't obtain Rexine anywhere else, many people happily just cover the whole table in billiard table cloth and, as far as we're aware, that works fine.
