I said: "Here kitty, kitty". Got this frown.
I am going to the store to buy the right size vacumn. Maybe someone can tell me the right one.
I prefer using a hand held 3 HP shop vac - small enough to easily hold in 1 hand while vacuuming with the other hand, and it has plenty of suction when used with a 6 inch brush attachment (ideal for a home table) or a 10 inch brush attachment if doing multiple tables at a time in a pool room. It takes me about 20 minutes to do our 10 pool tables using a 10 inch horsehair brush attachment, and I switch out with a clean brush every 2–3 tables.I find that the vacuum head makes a difference. If I use a brushless head the vacuum tend to lift the cloth. Using a head with brushes allows some suction to escape and keeps the cloth on the table. I use a small Armor-all shop vac.
What he said. I also use a no-bristle attachment that doesn't seal to the cloth fully.I find that the vacuum head makes a difference. If I use a brushless head the vacuum tend to lift the cloth.

This what I use are really like it.You run any dewalt tools? If so, I like how this does on my table.

They don't seem to cover much area.
I have been using a Dirtdevil handheld with a rotating brush on my Simonis for over 7 yrs. now with no problems.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06ZY7BTWM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 do not use a vacuum with a rotating brush..... it will damage the cloth.............
They cover the entire table in about 10 minutes. I have extras because people end up buying them from me when they see how well they work.They don't seem to cover much area.
Is that why you need 5 of them?
Be careful with how much suction you use. If you leave it in on place too long it will pick up the chalk dust under the cloth and pile it up and make little bumps under the cloth. This can be problematic near the slate joints if Duram's or Bondo is used. It can pull peaces out of the slate joints and pile them up under the cloth. Keep the wand moving.I am going to the store to buy the right size vacumn. Maybe someone can tell me the right one.
We've been doing exactly that for over 5 years in a private room with 4 Diamonds. Wipe, polish, roomba, cover. EVERY TIME the tables are used. Takes about 10 minutes.Roger that! Set it and go do something else! I wipe rails, clean balls while the Roomba vacuums the table. Thanks to this forum for turning me on to this idea. The Roomba doesn’t work to good on floors with many obstructions anyway, so it was fired from floor duty and it now specializes in table duty.
