Covered porch foosball?
« on: November 06, 2018, 01:51:13 PM »
I live in the Sacramento area of CA. Humidity is not the best or the worst in the states. I have an opportunity to get a coin-op t-2000 for a decent price...and while I have place inside that would be awesome...my wife wants me to put it (should we buy it) out under our covered porch. I agree space wise that its a great spot...I just don't want our table to get ruined. I have no experience with keeping a foosball outside. If I kept a cover on it when not in use...underneath a big porch...do you think that would be sufficient to keep it nice? Or am I fooling myself and its just going to weather? Any thoughts are appreciated. While I'm not an expert on tornadol models...I think this one is considered a blonde as the wood is fairly light.

Bad idea. Tornado foosball tables are made of MDF which soaks up moisture like a sponge. It will swell and ruin the table (swelling is irreversible, even when dried out).

It will ruin the table in a few months.
