Simonis X-1 table cleaner - 10-17-2020, 03:38 PM

Do any users of the Simonis X-1 have an issue with the wiping cloth surface becoming "pilled" like an old sweater? It seems to still do it's job though. Thoughts ?Mitch

Have not seen that at all, despite fairly heavy use.

860 has more of a fuss to it than 860HR, the 860HR is sheared tighter.

Yes, mine pilled quickly after minimal, light use.

Been using mine on 860HR for a year, not even a hint of pilling anywhere.

I forgot I had an X-1. Might start using it again. I'm concerned that the X-1 might simply push as much chalk down into the bed as it picks up. I've never seen that much chalk on the X-1 even after repeated use.

The Simonis X-1, admittedly over-priced, does, in fact, work as advertised on Simonis and similarly woven pool table cloths. There are cloths that have a weave that has more nap than the Simonis and these will develop pill pilings if the X-1 is used on them.
Also, some people tend not to use the X-1 as directed. They push down too hard on the cloth. You're supposed to slide the X-1 lightly to make the static action work properly and this way will also prevent chalk dust from being pushed into the pockets.

Good point. I forget, do they recommend vacuuming the X-1 to remove the chalk?

Vacuum and/or slap like an eraser.
