On SPAM FILTER.net General Topics there is a weekly post of Atlanta tournament results. Might try there. Atlanta has a large player base.

General Chat / Re: Should I buy this quarter million dollar green top?
« Last post by jdlivestrong on February 18, 2018, 08:12:00 AM »
I was in a similar situation - I bought a cheaper table on craigslist and was super disappointed when I got it home.  So I ended up buying a used Tornado T2000 and it is SO much more fun.  Food for thought...At $320, you're pretty close to being able to getting a nice, used Tornado table!

If you do end up buying that quarter mil table, know that those guys might be old/brittle and could break pretty quickly if "4 adult men" are playing it :D  The cheaper table (similar style 80's tournament table) I bought broke 2 men in the first couple games I played on it with "4 adult men".

Foosball is so much more fun than I thought it was going to be - I still want to get a Bonzini table...but instead of replacing my Tornado, it may accompany it :D

Probably depends on where you're located - I'd do a quick search on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace to see what others are asking.  My best guess based on where I live (Minnesota) and what I've seen over the past 6 months (I've been looking almost daily) it would sell quickly at $400 if it is as nice as it sounds.  Up to $500 if you found the right buyer.

Post a picture and others will probably chime in.

I am charged with trying to sell my sons foosball table. It is a Tornado with a black marble finish.
He rarely used it. Looks like new to me. I'm clueless about what to ask. Any help would be appreciated
Thanks.

So I ended up making the trip and buying the table. The exterior has a few chips and scratches, probably from being in a bar setting and being moved around, but not too bad. Everything else looks great and no warping of the playing surface. The only problem with this table that I noticed was the playing field near each of the goal post has become slightly delaminated. It's about 2 inches from the end of each goal post. I've read about several ways to fix this issue, including using a hot iron or heat gun to reactivate the contact cement or just buying contact cement and reapplying it to the affected area and regluing it down with weights. For now, my sons and I are playing on it without a problem but I don't want the delaminated areas to spread wider. Would it be safe to use a hot iron or heat gun on the playing field laminate or would this potentially cause damage to the laminate? Any advice on this issue is greatly appreciated.

General Chat / Should plastic washers between bumper and side of table be free
« Last post by Peter France on February 16, 2018, 09:32:29 AM »
Hi, I have very little experience of foosball. i have bought an old one and am doing up with my teams colours. the set up manual describes putting a plastic washer between the rubber bumper on the rod and the side of table. this washer just hands loose and moves about as the rod is pushed in and out. Pictures i have seen on the internet suggest this is the correct configuration but it seems odd to me. a bit noisy and distracting. why is it needed, and can i glue it to the bumper, or just remove it altogether? thanks for any help.

see attached image of table, by BCE in Bristol (UK I guess)
Thanks for any help
Peter
