General Chat / Re: Rene Pierre 15mm Handles
« Last post by Vann5 on September 03, 2018, 03:40:50 PM »
Mark,
I haven't done anything yet on wooden handles, but what about 3D printing?  Would still have to tap them, but I bet modeling a handle is not that hard.  Finding used originals (15mm) seems almost impossible at this point.

Hi Zack, I too purchased a RP bluetop circa 1971 last December.  Was really lucky to find one in Baltimore in generally good shape with all the handles--everything but the legs of all things.  But I can build /match those with some simple woodworking. 

Just my opinion--I'm not an expert for sure--but I wouldn't use something as harsh as pinesol.  I used Armor All Car cleaning wipes--they have a light detergent in them and are just damp and have that microfiber structure that act like a buffer with some elbow grease.

I couldn't believe how much grime came off...the dingy blue turned to a brighter blue and I had 10-15 pretty dingy/dirty wipes at the end.  Could probably use baby wipes too for that matter.  If I could post a picture I would--the results were very nice.

My top had was a little stiff when cold and needed to be re glued as it had some waves/bubbles in it.  Just took it outside into the hot sun today and rebonded it with 3M 80 adhesive spray.  The heat made it more pliable and separate from the wood surface more easily.

So is the original vinyl or linoleum?  I've heard linoleum, though hard to tell.  After a lot or research on linoleum, I decided to apply a light coat of boiled linseed oil (Home Depot in paint section)to the top after rebonding  it, since linseed oil is a component of linoleum.  To try to rejuvenate it a bit since it is 45+ years old.  Anyway, it seemed to help the pliability.  If it is vinyl, it probably cant hurt anything--just wont soak in or help much.  Anyway, after the cleaning and wipe down it looks really good.

Good luck.

Hello,

I have a 1970s vintage  micro games foosball table that my father bought me as a kid. I played for years and really enjoyed the table. The table is in good shape and all parts are original.  Just reading through this forum and see some people are looking for this table and I would really like to go to somebody who would really enjoy and appreciate it.   Contact me if you are interested. Brad at 602 369-0007. I am in Phoenix.

If there are pictures of this 1960s Patterson / DM type of machine new or product specs, parts etc that you can obtain for this project that would be great. This restoration will start the first part of 2019.

General Chat / Garlando Table with Overhead LED Lights
« Last post by Dough4200 on August 20, 2018, 11:00:16 PM »
I'll preface by saying I know nothing about foosball tables. I came across a Garlando table in great shape, green surface with black and red players. The sidewalls are fan shots with Budweiser Logo. It has a mesh cage going about 2-3" high. It also has a tall, curved, LED light bar that shines on the surface. The table itself is really heavy. Can anybody tell me anything about this table?

General Chat / Bonzini B60 Coin Op for sale
« Last post by alaskan thunder on August 18, 2018, 06:41:20 PM »
Great condition Bonzini coin operated table located in Jacksonville FL. Very rare table, expertly manufactured in France. Cost almost $3000 new plus shipping. Always kept in a non-smoking home. Table has been regularly maintained by an enthusiast and plays like new. Comes with new ITSF B-Balls, a bunch of older cork balls, lube, and some other parts and supplies. Table does have a few small cosmetic defects but none affect playability and you probably wouldn't even notice them unless I pointed them out. Table is set for free play but can easily be set to accept quarters if you want to use it commercially. I can help move and set up if you are local. Feel free to message for more info. I have lots of extra pics.
