The Ragman Billiard Ltd. is your source for moving billiard tables in Kamloops and the surrounding area. Our services department expertly dismantles, moves, and reassembles slate billiard tables in all sizes (6’, 7’, 8’, 9’, 10’, and 12’), either from one location to another or within the location where it currently resides. We can also provide a crate for the slate if you are shipping the table a great distance.
Please note that most manufacturers provide a lifetime warranty for both the frame and the slate, provided the table is serviced and moved by a Professional Billiard Technician.
We know that you want your billiard table maintained as well as it can be. We do a simple re-leveling tune-up on billiard tables. Send us the measurements and we’ll provide you with a quote. We can also provide you with an in-home fabric replacement service. Invitational fabric is a blend of 84% wool and 16% nylon whereas tour edition is 70% wool and 30% nylon, offering faster play and a longer life. Choose from a variety of colours! Please note that not all colours are in stock, and to allow 1-2 weeks for custom ordered colours.
Here are some tips to keep your billiard table well-maintained:
Fabric can easily last 10+ years depending on usage. Use an open airbrush attachment on your vacuum or a billiard brush to keep it dust free.
Use the dust cover: dust breaks down the fabric over time.
Stains don’t come out! Keep drinks, water, and other liquids away from the table.
We can also replace worn out cushions. There are many things to consider when replacing and maintaining billiard table cushions. Usually, when tables are not used enough, the rubber will begin to harden.
Bear in mind that there are two styles of rubber. Here are some useful things to remember:
V rubber “V” shaped, known as pool rubber, found on most pool tables
L rubber “L” shaped, known as snooker rubber, usually found on full-size 5’X10’ and 6’X12’ tables
V rubber has a pocket opening of 5” and uses balls that are 2¼” in diameter and pool cue tips from 12-14 mm
L rubber has a pocket opening of 3.5” and uses balls that are 2 1/16“ in diameter and snooker tips from 9-11 mm
We provide cushion replacements of all sizes in our shop. Just provide us with the size of your table and the style of the cushion, and we can provide you with a service quote. Please note that the tables cannot be converted back and forth to either pool or snooker. The good news is that you can play pool and snooker on both styles of cushion since pool and snooker balls come in both sizes listed above.
