Hi there,

I recently purchased this table at a garage sale, I canít find any information on it. I will post pics, but any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, would it be worth it to restore the table? Or just leave it original? Any information is appreciated.

Good to hear. I guess I wasted a $2 tube of superglue. Thanks for the input.

That would likely work but I don't know if blown out goals are really an issue w/ newer tables. I have probably owned 15 t-3000's and have never seen one that had any types of issues w/ blowout. That picture shows some wear on the MDF at the rear of the wall but I think my brand new custom t3000 had that happen quickly and it really isn't an issue in my eyes. I think blowout was a much an issue with the laminate on the wall as it was the underlying MDF. I have seen a few that had de-lamination in the goal area but that is a separate issue. Come to think of it, I haven't seen blowouts in any tables newer than brown marbles (circa 1990's). Doesn't mean it hasn't happened but I haven't seen it.

Oops... didnt mean to post this... hit enter on accident.

Anyway... My goal was starting to look like the image above (no serious damage but starting to undermine the laminate). I put superglue on the MDF to let it soak in and harden the fibers. Anyone else try this? Did it help slow the erosion?

Old thread but relevant question:

Is the "hard as nails" product still viewed as the best preventative measure for the goal area?

The pic below is a tournament used table I bought (one state tourney) and the backside of the goal area exhibits some denting and rounding.  I believe this T3000 is a 2014 manufacture.

The front mouth of the goal has a nice round over from the factory which is good.

I like my new table but it is disappointing that VDLP hasn't come up with something better in this area.  At a minimum, laminating the backside of the goal board would be a start in the right direction.  This could be done prior to routing the goal mouth and require very little time and money.

Another idea I had from a manufacturing standpoint would be to make the goal board an easier to replace part.  Even if there would be a few visible seams or exposed fasteners on the cabinet I think it would be a fair tradeoff.
