We just finished up this Brunswick Orleans in Yorba Linda, California. The pro 8′ classic now has new cushion rubber, golden felt, and leather baskets to get this family back in the game.
Aging pool tables often need a major overhaul once they hit about 35-50 years old. Even if the table hasn’t been played on much or still looks perfect, it likely needs some love under the cover. Cushion rubber deteriorates over time and loses its elasticity, causing balls not to bounce properly. Leather straps of pockets dry out and become brittle over time. These pieces eventually break leaving your balls to hit the floor.
Many of these older billiard tables can be brought back to life at a cost less than purchasing a new replacement. When inquiring about service on your table, please have dimensions and manufacturer’s name handy. These two things will help us get you the most accurate quote for recushion and refelt services.
Are those the same pockets on the Brunswick Orleans? I need a set of black (don’t need the tassels) for an Orleans. Can you help with a price and, if you don’t supply, can you point me in the right direction?
Thanks for your help!
Hello Patrick, those pockets in my blog are #3 irons. They’re available on fringe or shield. The cost of a set is about $400.
Kind regards, Dave.
We have a Brunswick Orleans mahogany table we would like to sell. It has set in our family room covered for more than 20 years. Condition. Like new. It has it own complete fitted cover. Also the three piece insert that cushions the table surface and allows you to use it as a large dining table. It’s never been dismantled or moved. How much might it be worth? I’d like to sell it.
It’s very difficult to appraise a pool table online. If you are in the OC area please contact us directly.
