Best I can do for info is point you here:

Obviously a brown marble T-2000 with metal feet and ashtrays. Awesome table. You might be able to get $700+ to the right person, most brown marbles fetch 200-500 but dont look as nice and you never see ashtrays on them. Only thing that might hurt it is that its not a coin op., nor does it look like a split cabinet model.  I am also unsure if those ashtrays are original, they might be but I am not too familiar.

I really like the technical drawing and would love a pdf scan of that if possible. I am a tech teacher, teach CAD, and run a foosball club so that would be perfect blown up and on my classroom wall. Any chance you can get me a hi-res scan of that?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Age, value etc.

Any way his school could start a foosball club? I run one at the school I work at and get 20-30 kids at my weekly tournaments. Please get in touch with the administrators in the district and That might be your best bet.
Good luck

My son likes to play foosball. We have foosball table at home. We know there are many adult players in bay area. My son hopes to find other kids to play with. Are there any kids are interested in playing foosball?

My son is at 8 grade and we live in Fremont, California.

Are there any human verification tests to create an account on this forum? If so, the bots seem to have it figured out.

Looks good to me.

I'd check for play surface warping as well.

Here's some help on table ID:

You can check South Dakota Foosball Club, a Facebook group where you can connect with other foosball players in SD. You can also find out about local events, share tips and tricks, and post your own photos and videos.
General Chat / Re: Converting a coin-operated Tornado foosball table to free play

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?

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. 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.
