204V Thermostatic Snooker Table Iron
Snooker tables should be regularly ironed after brushing to reduce moisture attracted from the atmosphere by woolen cloths and to smooth the nap for more accurate ball roll and faster playing speed. The iron is heated to the correct temperature controlled by the thermostat, then detached for use.
Quick tips: Table Care
1. Brush the table first ensuring that you sweep dirt down the table in the direction of the nap.
2. Once all of the dirt is at the end of the table, use the end of the brush or a cushion brush to sweep the dirt out at the pockets.
3. Wrap a duster or piece of baize around the brush and, using the wooden side of the brush, sweep down the table as if you were ironing it flat.
4. Once the iron is at a suitable heat (not too hot - it's worth testing on paper first - if it scorches then it's too hot!), iron in straight lines down the table.
5. Overlap each line mark that the iron makes until you have ironed the whole table.
6. Repeat as neccessary but don't over-iron as this dries the wool fibres and makes the cloth more susceptible to wearing.
Snooker Tables, Care Instructions 'how to iron a snooker table"
Your Snooker, billiards and pool table equipment must be maintained now and again to keep the tables up to scratch.
Firstly brushing, always brush with the nap of the table which runs from the baulk or D end to the black spot end. So start with your brush at the D end and walk up the table to the black spot end of your snooker table.
Brush in straight lines, then all the debris will collect at the top cushion, which can then be brushed towards one of the top pockets and away from the table.
As for the wood, clean with a damp cloth, the wood varnish is usually so hard, that is all that is required. If you insist on using a spray polish, spray the duster first then apply to the wood, so as not to get spray on the cloth.
If you have to clean the cloth occasionally vacuum the table, make sure to use a mild suction with a fine brush attachment. Vacuum the table from the D to the black spot as in brushing.
