Can you make a Ball return for Tornado Twister
« on: August 30, 2019, 11:14:52 PM »
Hi, i just bought a tornado Twister and wanted to see if anyone had plans on how to add a ball return to it.  Has anyone ever tried this?  if so can you give me any feedback on it?

Thanks

If youre willing to drill holes / use jigsaw on the cabinet and glue/screw some 1/4" plywood in location, then Im sure you can come up with a return system. I dont have that table but I imagine youll need to take the ball catch system out and add a ramp to send the ball back to the center of the table... obviously will need a hole in the side of the cabinet to reach your hand in or have it dispense under the side wall of the cabinet.

I suspect it could be done without too much trouble but instead of spending days hacking one up, it probably makes more sense to buy one that was built that way in the first place. You would also get a much better constructed table with thicker sidewalls, better bearings, counter weighted men, etc.
