    Default Valley/Victor restoration

    Actually, I'm not doing a full blown restoration. I just want to make it playable. Our small-town church has a Valley/Victor coin-op. I'm guessing it's from the late 1950's or early 1960's. I've pulled the rails. I'm trying to get most of the old glue off before I put new rubber and felt on. We're on a really tight budget. I'm thinking of Mali cloth (we can't afford Simonis). I'm doing all the work myself. It's been a few years since anyone has asked the question on this forum, so- Any good suggestions for refelting for someone who has never done it before?

    BTW, all the tables in this small town are trashed. I'm thinking about a part time career in refurbishing the tables around here. Is there a school, or certification? Or do people just figure this out as they go?

    Don't go cheap you will end up spending more time and money then expected. http://www.seyberts.com/products/Val...128-10034.html this is your answer to your problems. I can include some directions and the only other this you are going to need is a can of 3M glue.

    Hi Kory,

    I hear what you're saying. For years I've played on nothing but Brunswick GC covered with Simonis 860. The owner of the pool hall took real good care of his tables. I might be disappointed with the Mali cloth. But then I'm not the one funding the project. I am insisting on new cushions. (I stripped the old ones down to the wood- kinda forced the issue.) I'm just going to try to do the best I can with the limited resources we have available.

    What I would recommend is going with the pool god rail rubber with Valley Teflon 4045 cloth. Pool god rubber has great bounce for the price and the valley cloth is more durable and plays faster.

    I was going to suggest the Pro Am rubber. Not that I know anything about different rubber. I just figured that if I suggested Pool God, my pastor would think I was yanking his chain! I'll check in to the Valley cloth. Thanks for the suggestion.
