I'm looking for basic mahjong folding tables, with felt tops, at least 36"x36" non automatic. I live in San Francisco, hoping you can help! I've found a company in Singapore but they say they don't export. I've seen these tables in the US (I'd like to donate a few tables to my Mom's senior center) but can't find them anywhere.

My Monobridge case has a label in it, the tile tray is in great condition, only the leather handle is worn. Latches work.

Hello Tom,
I am looking for a replacement handle for my new mahjongg case. I only need the handle, the remaining parts are fine. I work in a retail store that sells mahjongg supplies and this case came in damaged. The boss said I could have it and I am hoping to rehab it to useable condition. I have checked Ebay, but donít find any handles the correct size.
Thank you for any help you can offer.

Box hardware

It was suggested that because you buy incomplete sets you may have the box hardware spare parts that I seek.
The set is lovely but the box arrived with condition issues that the seller did not disclose. I've chosen to do repairs and make it whole. It's a Chinese wood mahjong box (9.25 " wide x 6.5" tall x 6" deep) with partial hardware on 3 of the 5 drawers. The seller included 1 additional drawer pull which is 2 pieces, a flat piece and a ring. The flat piece is just over 3/4" long & just over 1/4" wide. The ring is 3/4" wide.
- I'm also looking for 1 protector that goes atop 1 corner of the front door that slides up & down. Seller did include 1 protector. It is just shy of 2" long, & just over 3/8" wide.
- I think something is supposed to hang on the front door between the decorative metal bat's ears. There's a hole there.
I hope the pictures are helpful. Thank you for taking the time to help me.

Hi Marilyn,
The place most people get old cards is eBay. You can check my Accessories For Sale bulletin board, you can try contacting people who sell old tiles on my Tiles For Sale board, and I'm posting this on the Accessories Wanted board. Good luck!
By the way, the MahjongMuseum website is still online. But yeah, don't bother sending emails there.
May the card be with you.

Hi Carol,
First, you contact a vendor who can sell you the accessories you want. There are vendors listed in FAQ 4a and on the Accessories For Sale Bulletin Board. You can link to the FAQs and Bulletin Boards via the site links, above left (scroll up).

To contact a vendor, if the email address is shown, email him or her to inquire about how to order. You might be able to click the email address (if it's underlined) or you might have to copy and paste the email address into the To box of a new email (using your email program). If the website shows the email address with a or a , change that mah-jongg character to the @ symbol.

If the vendor's website address is shown, you might be able to just click on it (if it's underlined) or you might have to copy the address and paste it into the address box of your Internet browser. Once you arrive on the vendor's site, there should be information there about how to order.

You can tell an email address from a web address easily: email addresses have an @ in them, and web addresses begin with http://

May the accessories be with you.
