Pool tables are not meant to be moved without breaking them down to multiple pieces ( 3 pieces of slate, bed, rails, legs, skirt, etc.) Breaking it down in the right steps is essential and trying to move it with 3-4 men can be hazardous to the table and men moving it. Paying the extra money to have a professional move it is worth it, and may prevent multiple types of accidents that could happen to you or the table. Setting the table back up is even more technical in nature than breaking it down with many tricks involved to have the pool table installed right. With over 13 years experience, save yourself the hassle and potential hazard by giving us a call to schedule your pool table moving. Call 765-881-0160 For Help!

Pool table installation is technical in nature and there are many tricks in the trade to make sure it is done right. Most professionals say it is better to use bees wax over bondo when sealing the seams between the pieces of slate.
Should you use flat stock shims or wedges when leveling the slate? It is always best to use flat stock shims, but unfortunately some tables are poorly designed and it necessary to use wedges.
Do you glue or staple the cloth? It is best to staple when the pool tables design allows, and only glue when the design will not allow for stapling.
Do you have a machinist level that has 1/1000 degree tolerance for leveling the table?

Some times a pool table needs new rubber placed on the rails. One of two things can happen to the rubber, it can become hard or mushy. You might first notice the balls not responding right when they hit the rails. Feel the rubber with your hands and press firmly with your fingers, if it is bad it might feel hard like a rock and have lost its elastic quality, or when you press the rubber it slowly regains its shape. Either way the pool table needs new rubber. There are a lot of tricks to putting new rubber on correctly that a lot of installers don’t even know.

When you buy a pool cue, there’s more than just chalking and shooting. To make your cue last and to make your playing optimal, you need to take care of your pool cue, including all types of cue repair . Cue Repairs can include cleaning the shaft, grooming the tip, scuffing, shaping and more. When you select Alpha Billiards for your pool cue tip repair or replacement, we always start by centering the shaft in the lathe perfectly. In that way, you can be assured the ferrule cannot be damaged. We then prepare the cue tip including roughing up the glue side of the cue tip. The end of the ferrule is faced perfectly flat so that you may expect a far superior hit. Finally, we cut the tip to the exact diameter of the ferrule and shape the tip so that it is ready for immediate use. As a finishing step to each cue repair, we polish the ferrule and burnish the sides of the tip to insure the cue repair is sealed properly.
Please remember that once the cue repair work has been started there is always the remote possibility that additional defects could be discovered. Should this be the case, the client will be notified before any further cue repair work of any sort continues. If you are shipping your cue to us for a cue repair, please do not send joint protectors as we will not be responsible for them. And when preparing the pool cue for shipment make sure it is thoroughly protected.
