I am restoring the old Brunswick I got and I am working on the rails first. What I wanted to know is would it make a difference if I replace the cushions and cloth on the rails and store them at the house.

I mean as long as the cloth is tight on the rails I wouldn't think this would not hurt anything.

I am just trying to get things done in steps.

Next would be to sand and refinish the pool table legs.

    First, congratulations on getting your restoration started! I'm totally jealous of you because you have the room to undertake such a project. You are lucky! (I'm living in an apartment)

    You are going to notice more crisp rebounds with new cushion rubber on your pool table. How old is the table? I'd love it if you could upload or send some before and after shots.

    How tightly do you pull the cloth over the cushions?

    pull the cloth and cushions off before you restore the rails. i think you are asking if you can put new cushions/cloth on now and store them for later? if you are worried about the cushions dying then either don't do it or store it all in a relatively humide place. what state do you live in? a really dry one?

    pulling the cloth on the rails should be tight but you don't want to pull it so tight that it is creating divots into the cushion. if you do pull it that tight don't worry because the cloth will (or should) relax those out over time.

    rails are one of the hardest parts of a pool table and if you have never ever done them before it might be beneficial to either send in the rails to have them restored/recushioned/recovered. ( i think mueller does that) or at least hire a technician to recushion and recover it and ask him if you can watch.
