Jelkes legs are detachable, and in general, round means pre-war and the 'thru'penny bit' legs are post war..... NB. Hubble and Freeman have since removed their bar billiards page.
Sav, what are the numbers for on the "teeototum" peg, is it for counting how many times it's knocked over ??
I don't know Keith, never found out its purpose. I have played skittles on a snooker table many years ago where you had to knock over a skittle by potting the object ball at it and that gave you the normal number of points. You had a token with a number on it and that was what you were trying to work towards.
I can only think this was similar on a FRENCH bar billiards table in that you got the number of points on the upward face of the skittle when you toppled it with the object ball. On a French table there is no 200 hole by the black, so nice target area.
Peter Ludgate from Hubbles is recovering my snooker table shortly (know my limitations!), I'll show it to him and see if he's seen one on his many travels.
