Man it took me since 1976 to find a tornado for less than 800 and was in need of new parts. Well I have finally found one by accident looking for someting else on craigslist. The seller had a buyer but after talking /texting we found a mutual friend that I had known since 76 and later in life the seller always had my friend as tourney partner. He had to get it gone the very next day becausehis family was moving from San Angelo to the piney woods. Well I borrowed and planned and wished and hoped but the guy knocked off $200 cause our mutual friend and I had to catch a ride in a truck for a 5 hr. to 6 hr. round trip. And I got a black coin operated 1973-2003  30th anniversary table for $300 !  well it had to be cleaned up and touchup for a few to several hours. And It has now found me, still waiting for over 50 years to get it. #1 is Patience and luck and who you know and know how to tell a good deserving story.. Now if I can only find a few 50 to 70 yr old cats who feel like going a couple rounds with the champ ! Many yrs back I opted outand got a ynamo .. It was good and tough and lasted me many great years .. This one should last til Im dead ..
Asked and answered. Leaving the original post (with strike) in case someone else has a similar situation.

It seems straight forward, but hear me out. I went to the valley dynamo site and used the "Locate Dealer". The closest dealer to me is actually now permanently closed. The next closest is about 3 hours away but they won't deliver to me and I don't have the option of going to pick it up. There is a "sales inquiry" form you can complete on the V-D website so I'm wondering if maybe I can purchase directly from them? I do have another dealer in my city but they deal exclusively for Bonzini and Olhausen. I stopped by today and asked about Tornado and they don't have the ability to order those.

I did see that you can purchase these from Amazon, however I'd prefer for that to be my last option. I'd much rather buy from a dealer, and put some commission in someones pocket, if possible but I didn't expect it to be so challenging.

Hi everyone, just an amateur fan here. Still, I'd like to get a premium table but don't even know where to start. All I know is if I look at one and know if it'd be good or not. Looking for a heavy table where balls don't get stuck in corners. Originally had a budget of like 400$, but I'm seeing that some tables go for far more than that, so I'm willing to balloon my budget if the quality warrants that.

Is there a guide around here? Checked the side bar but unless I'm blind, not seeing it. Looking for near professional quality without breaking the bank.
General Chat / Replace scoring bead assembly Bonzini B90
« Last post by jonnyep on May 06, 2024, 05:32:20 PM »
Anyone know how to remove/replace the scoring bead assembly on a Bonzini B90?
Do I need to remove the bottom parts of the table to get at a nut holding the assembly in place?
Or is it possible to do by loosening the goal/ashtray?
I am looking for a partner for the Hall Of Fame Classic 2024 event in the following categories: open doubles, expert doubles, pro doubles. I prefer to play as a forward but I feel comfortable being a goalie too.
You can reach me at email address.
Szabolcs Safran
I'm interested in the expert doubles position. Hope there are still slots left. I have sent you an email.
General Chat / Re: What happend to Fireball foosball tables?

I still see their name mentioned on multiple groups & forums as one of the best brands of foosball tables.

Can anyone provide info about what happened? Are they dead if so why?
Tables like this are prevalent in Australia and Asia. The problem is that it is exceedingly difficult to import the brand into the US and the majority of Europe. There are just no distributors in certain areas. Two of my friends have these, and they make fantastic games. They are lively, entertaining tables. Just really difficult to obtain.

Does anyone know where to by tournament Garlando balls in the US? Or, if it's not possible, what the closest equivalent is?

Just got a Garlando, and the balls it came with are white nylon eggs.
