Hi, I'm looking to build a Bar Billiard Table but need an accurate layout of the table markings and hole positions. Do you know where i can get hold of a drawing or even plans of a BB Table. Many thanks
Why on earth would you want build one for, get yourself a Jelkes table, if you like one that you can restore, or go all the way and buy a restored one, would be alot of aggro building one when there are lots of good ones for sale :D
I needed measurements for holes in a slate last year so I trudged around the local pubs with tables and measured the hole locations and found that each table was different, up to inch difference on occasions (or was that the booze :-/).
I don’t know if there are any accurate drawings available, I’m currently working on a set of for my own table when I find time.
For measurements I’d have a quick look at the All England Bar Billiards Association site , there is some info about spots, D’s, baulk lines and table sizes in the rules. (www.aebba.org/AEBBA_Rules.shtml)
If you are interested, I have a design an electronic timer that'll cost you about 12 quid or so.
While waiting for approval I too would like to know about plans. I did find a site that will be making a KIT all you will have to do is build the main frame and they send you all he parts and hardware needed. It is not available yet. I live in Texas and shipping can be a bit pricey. My friend and I are always building things including the Bar in my garage. This would be a great addition to it if I could find more info. Any additional info would be great. Thanks
