INSTALLING FELT ON THE SLATE
Before installing felt clean the slate thoroughly. Lay the felt nap side up over the slate, leave equal amounts of cloth overhang at the sides and ends. For a backed felt table, follow the same basic procedures using staples on the underside of the slate instead of Contact (spray) Cement.

1. At one end (head) of the table, fold the cloth back away from the edge of the slate (12") and spray a coat of contact adhesive on the exposed slate top and the folded back felt. Do not get cement on the playing side of the felt, use protective paper to prevent over spray getting on the felt. spray the underside of the felt also.

2. Attach the felt at #1 Figure C.

3. Stretch the felt across the table at #2 Figure C, Fold the cloth at the overhang underneath the edge of the slate at the end.

4. Fold the cloth back at the other end of the table and repeat Step #1 stretching the cloth from #3 to #1 (Figure B) and press into position.

5. Stretch the cloth from #3 to #4 while stretching from #4 to #2

6. On the left side, fold the felt back over the top of the slate from #1 to #5
Figure D, spray the edge of the felt and the bottom surface of the slate from #1 to #5. Using a strip of paper to protect the playing side of the felt, apply a coat of adhesive to the back side of the felt about 3" wide from #1 to #5 and bond the felt in place.

7. Repeat steps 6, stretching the cloth from #3 to #5. Figure D

8. On the right side of the table, fold the felt back along the edge of the slate as in step 6 for the area #2 to #7 on Figure D, stretching the cloth across the table from #5 to #7 and #2 to #7 press the cloth in place taking care to avoid any wrinkles.

the side pocket opening bonding the felt to the underside of the pocket opening.
