General Chat / Re: Converting a coin-operated Tornado foosball table to free play
« Last post by gerihorn on August 22, 2023, 11:34:13 PM »
I just purchased a Tornado Foosball table (it's a coin-operated model with a brown marble color) and I'd like to set it to free play. It has a "ESD" coin slot with four coin opening, two of which have black spacers/blanks. What size spacers/blanks fit here and can I just insert those to avoid inserting quarters going forward - or is there an easier method to do so?
Tornado Foosball table is so great. I also want to buy it. And, sorry, Iím not sure about the size of the spacers/blanks for your ESD coin slot.

General Chat / Re: Tornado Foosball Bearing Nut Dimensions? Leg bolt size?
« Last post by robertcox on August 21, 2023, 06:21:04 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/B001023R3Ybloxd io

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 cannot provide you with the exact size of the hexagon on the bushing wrench. As I know, the leg bolts require a 9/16" socket with extension and the top of the cabinet requires a 7/16" wrench.

Congratulations on your Tornado Foosball table purchase! Converting a coin-operated model to free play is a common desire among foosball enthusiasts. The black spacers/blanks you're referring to are typically used to disable coin operation and enable free play.

The fact that it's coin-operated might add a certain nostalgic or commercial value if you plan to use it in a business setting. bitlife

General Chat / Re: Curved playing field on vintage (maybe tournament soccer table)
« Last post by bekeane on August 11, 2023, 03:36:25 AM »
I was given this vintage (1970's) table by my neighbor.  After cleaning it up it looks and works great, but I noticed that no matter where you put the ball on the table it wants to roll in towards the center.  I am wondering if the field is supposed to be curved or if it has just sagged over the years.  If I apply some pressure on the bottom of the table in the center, it seems to flatten it out pretty well.  Wondering if this is something i can/should fix, or if this is the way it was designed and we should just play it as is. 
I can't figure out how to attach a photo to this post, but the table I have is the same exact one that is shown in this post https://www.foosball.com/forum/index.php?topic=4789.0 hoop grids

Many vintage tables have some degree of playing field slope, and it can be part of the nostalgic charm of playing on an older table.

If you don't have access to the manual or manufacturer's information, you can try measuring the dimensions of the coin slot openings on your table. Use a ruler or calipers to measure the width and height of the coin slot openings. This information can help you find suitable spacers or blanks that fit securely.
