Perfectly normal - those lines are the side strips to keep the ball off the wall. See image here:
General Chat / T3000 Surface Question
« Last post by dtheman22222 on August 04, 2023, 10:13:23 AM »
Hi. I am considering purchasing a T-3000 where I can't personally inspect beforehand.  I was wondering if anyone has an opinion on this play surface.  I see lines about a quarter inch into the surface on left and right sides and am curious if this could be warping or damage or is just standard?

Any insight or opinions are appreciated.

Try a tornado pink ball. (currently sold put) (currently sold out)

Not sure what you can do if the changed the material for walls/playfield to slow down ball and increase control. Start with a ball change.
General Chat / Warrior table seems to be too fast
« Last post by Gufemur on July 20, 2023, 09:55:12 PM »
Hello everyone. I recently got a warrior table and the balls arrived just too fast and bounce far more than the table I've been playing on for the last two years. My friend has an older table and we are able to control the ball much better than on my table. I dont know if its the table top material or what. We tried the same balls and his table and it's easier to control. Is there anytging I can do to make the balls less aggressive in speed and bounce?

General Chat / Re: Review New Warrior Table (QA Issues)

Sorry about these issues, you should try to get them to replace it or straight up return it. A new product should not have any of those issues. Most of us here push Tornado heavily but many cant find a used one or cant afford a new one. So dollar for dollar the Warrior is best option in terms of playability in US. 
This may help number 8: mine

Your video is really helpful. It helped me to improve my problem.
General Chat / Re: First table - casual user - Roberto Sport Scout?

Looking to purchase a used table for my 14 year old son to play with his friends in the basement.  Not looking for a Tornado sort of thing, just casual users but wanted a decently built one that isn't going to peel / look like cr*p in a year or two from maybe once a week use sort of thing.

Came across a gently used Roberto Sport Scout:

In beech color.  Seems to be "only" 110lbs.  But curious if the quality of the table will be decent enough otherwise, or should I be looking at tables in the ~130-160 lb range like the Roberto or Fabi/FAS "Home" models at a minimum?
Considering your intended usage of once-a-week and casual play, the Scout model should be able to withstand the activity and hold up well over time. It's always a good idea to check the table in person, if possible, and inspect its overall condition, playing surface, rods, and other components.

If you prefer a heavier table, the Roberto or Fabi/FAS "Home" models you mentioned with weights in the 130-160 lb range can provide even more stability. However, they might come at a higher price point. Assess your budget and prioritize the features and weight that best suit your requirements.

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.

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!
The bushing wrench used for Tornado foosball tables, including the T2000, typically has a 1-inch hexagon shape.
