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.
We have created a special Bar Billiards cloth package for re-covering your Bar Billiards table and cushions. This should work for most 6 foot or smaller tables. Standard snooker table cloth packages do not work so well because Bar Billiards doesn't have the middle pockets.

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. To learn more about the Essex coin-op mechanism including how to configure it, please click here.

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.
Unfortunately we have no more white scoring diamonds but we do have rectangular scoring plates that are black with silver numbers. They come in sets of 20 with the following numbers: 3 x 200, 3 x 100, 4 x 50, 2 x 30, 4 x 20, 4 x 10 - the plates are only small but should suffice for scoring. They are approx 20mm x 15mm.
The scoring squares are small black and silver metal squares with the requisite numbers on them. They are designed to be stuck to the backboard to show and also on the ball return tray at the front of the table.

Components below are suitable for Jelkes Bar Billiards tables and may not fit other makes of table. Many of the components are no longer made and are scarce - so are effectively second-hand and may not be in mint condition. None-the-less, they will be reconditioned to an acceptable standard for playing in a pub.
The hole lining rings are new and slightly tapered. The inner diameter is 55mm. The outer diameter of the larger end is 66mm. They should be glued inside each hole. They are usually slightly too big for the holes, so they need to be turned or sanded or cut down so that they fit snugly. Colours can vary but presently the rings are a light red colour.
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 available below. 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.

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.
