With a handful of tools and a little elbow grease, you can disassemble a pool table in a matter of hours. Each pool table has its unique construction, and since full-size pool tables range from 450 to 525 pounds. (1000 to 1150 kg), it would be better if at least two people work together. The steps for disassembling a billiard table is outlined below.

 Take out your pockets

Put dust masks and glasses before starting disassembly. Use the stapler or pliers to remove the remaining staples from the pockets. Then, use the Allen key to remove the pockets from the frame.

 Disassemble the rails

With more modern tables, remove the screws from the bottom of the table. Older tables may have bolts on the sides instead of below. Depending on the brand of the table, once the bolts are removed, the rails will come straight or have to be removed from a curved canal.

 Remove the fabric (Baize)

Sometimes you will find that the carpet – the green material that covers the table – will be bonded to the slate. You will need to use the sharp object or a flathead screwdriver to remove it from the table. If the canvas is stapled, you can find stamps at the bottom of the board.  Remove with a debris remover or pensions.  Then you can remove the carpet from the wood.

Disassemble the slate

Most of the tables are built with three heavy slate plates.  Additional help is useful to eliminate them. If you plan to reassemble the table (instead of throwing it away), the slate must be removed from the table before lifting it, and you must be careful not to chip, dent or drop the slabs.

Slate is often bolted to the frame. Also, three slabs are usually divided among themselves.  Remove the screws and screws and remove each stage plate from the frame before removing it. If you reassemble the table later, put the pieces of slate so that the flat side and slate of part 1 is laid on the slate side of room 2. With the rough and underside of part 2 to top, Place piece 3 with the rough side down. Putting slate against the flat and lower side of another slab can damage the slate. If it is stored for more than a week, place the slate on the side, well supported, rather than on the floor. In this way, it has less potential to distort.

Disassemble the frame

The most straightforward part of this process and if you plan to reset it, you can usually save the structure as a single piece.  You’ll see that the frame is screwed or shot.  Replacing the table to remove the legs, then remove the remaining frame

If you are selling, moving, or reassembling the table in another way, you will want to pack each piece carefully.
