General Chat / Garlando top glass: thickness?
« Last post by Maxgarlando on February 19, 2024, 01:58:39 PM »
Hi,

Iím trying to get a new top glass cover made (not the playing field) for my older model Garlando coperto. I know it should be tempered glass.
What thickness should I get? Iíve heard 4mm (0.157 inch) somewhere but the recess is bigger, about 7mm.
Can someone confirm what the original is?

Kind Regards, Max

... Through trial and error, I've learned that my table needs a 1.5" (36mm) ball diameter.  When I purchased quality balls they are often smaller and cause a lot of dead spots on my table...

IMPORTANT NOTE about Dead Lines/Spots!!!
There are "dead lines" between every pair of rods.   If both men could strike the oversized ball... you have a "stalemate" or "impasse" and something has to give... be the men or players "wrists".  OUCH!

Given some time on the table.. you'll move the ball enough so that there is LESS time where the ball stops, and annoys folks.  The best tables all have "dead lines".  You'll get used to it!   If the ball dies in front of forward rod in in that goalies area.. the goalie get's the ball.  If it dies between midfield rods and forward rods.. the team last scored upon get's the server again from midfield!

Favorite Grippy but still good/faster rolling balls are ITSF B-Ball, Leonhart Pro Ball, Roberto Sport Roller-Ball... https://shop.foosball.com/foosballs.html

Cheers!

Try craigslist  and facebook marketplace  as well as any other similar site. Hold out until you find a nice tornado, a  commercial quality would be best option but the Cyclone II  is not bad if thats what you can find. The Storm II is okay. I would not bother with other lower tier Tornado tables.

General Chat / Newbie Ball Selection Question
« Last post by foos4fun on February 02, 2024, 10:40:16 PM »
Hello.  I'm new here and to foosball.

My family recently picked up a simple foosball table and we're enjoying learning to actually play the game properly using proper shooting, passing, ball control, etc.  I need some help trying to purchase a decent ball that fits my table.

Through trial and error, I've learned that my table needs a 1.5" (36mm) ball diameter.  When I purchased quality balls they are often smaller and cause a lot of dead spots on my table.  I'm struggling to find 1.5" balls that are quality cork or textured balls.  The 1.5" balls I find are the junky hard plastic soccer style.  Can someone recommend a quality textured and cork ball option that is 1.5"?  I've seemed to search everywhere with little luck. 

Lastly, how do I search the forums on this website?  I couldn't find a place to search the forums before I posted this question.

Thanks in advance.

General Chat / Re: Tornado Foosball Bearing Nut Dimensions? Leg bolt size?
« Last post by Lamity2001 on January 22, 2024, 02:42:53 AM »
Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a coin-op tornado foosball table (T2000, brown marble, I think), and I will need to take it apart to transport it in my vehicle. Rather than spending money ordering a tornado bearing/bushing wrench, I would like to 3D print my own bushing wrench. For that reason, I need to know: what size hexagon is the bushing? (E.g. 1 in across the flats?) The tool I want to 3D print is this one. Amazon says the package is 1x2x5 inches. https://www.amazon.com/Tornado-Foosball-Bearing-Wrench/dp/B001023R3Y uno online

I do have pliers to use if necessary, but I'd rather not goober anything up. I have a 5/32" pin punch (from a set I will bring, so I have smaller and larger) that I planned to use for removing the men if I need to.

A second question is if anyone knows what size socket wrench I will need to take the legs off, and what size I will need to take the top off of the cabinet. I may be able to fit it into my vehicle with just the top playing field off, but I'd like to be able to take the legs off also, in case that is necessary. Any information is appreciated!
I have no idea.
