    I have a number of games I want to find/build tables for holding drinks and purses, thinking between every other game? maybe you have pictures or any ideas, or measurements for what you use besides pingulp style holders,

    I’ve been after something like this for awhile myself. I don’t have much space between the games so it has to be pretty narrow. I’ll probably just need to make something myself but I haven’t had the time.

    If there is even a chance of a table touching one of the machines I wouldn't risk it. Or if there is a chance of a drink getting spilled and splashing onto the sides of the table? If I saw someone nudging really hard into said table?

    Just, no. Not for me. My heart's already racing just thinking about it.

    Find a table with foam edges for protection of your pins.

    I’d assume that you’ll have to custom build something. I doubt that you’ll find a table that’s 6” wide.

    I'm a fan of pingulps myself, but if I were to have tables between my games I would make them short enough that they could be tucked under the game whenever I need to get between machines to work on them.

    #6 7 months ago

    Pingulps for each game. Purses can go on the floor or somewhere else. It's your home right, not a public arcade or bar?

    #7 7 months ago

    I am looking for home and a bar, thinking yeah 6-12” wide probably, padded sides is a good idea, need to be convienent height for setting stuff,

    I'll 3rd pingulps! Great stuff!

    Standard counter height.

    If you’re set on a table, I would get some 30” wooden bar stools without padding and put them just behind the player, between machine gaps.

    An old snowboard works great.

    I've seen some "flipper shaped" tables much like the snowboard above at places here. Can't for the life of me figure out where they bought them...wouldn't mind one like that myself. Currently I have a shelf that attaches like a pingulp that goes between them.

    #13 7 months ago

    Pingulps won’t hold mugs, or peoples “stuff” while they play, I like the flipper shaped table idea, next time post a pic of you remember.

    #14 7 months ago

    Not a pingulp... Just a shelf. Holds my bourbon cup better . Picked this up at Expo a few years ago. Unfortunately the Op relocated and took his tables to the north end of town so I can't get a picture of the flipper table.

    Here's an image of the flipper table from the Op I found online...

    White one on the left, yellow to the right of the beer...

    I see an opportunity for some enterprising soul!

    The giant flipper rubber would protect the side art. Brilliant!

    Just for comparison... this is a bar here in Toronto which recently introduced pinball machines. Lots of space between games makes this possible.

    We have a place here in Melbourne, Australia that basically use a pallet standing on its side. Great height and seems strong enough. I and others use it at our monthly meet with no issues!

    Cidercade in Dallas has really good ones...but I don’t have any pics. They are snug which makes the hard core nudging guys upset cause they can’t slide games around.

    #21 7 months ago

    I like this idea, I have enough room for 6.5 machines along one of my walls, so parting them with thin tables would be cool. I really like the snowboard idea. I used to skateboard (poorly) when I was younger, so I'm going to check into the feasibility of that.

    #22 7 months ago

    My worry with snowboard and skateboard is you want flat surface to keep drinks from spilling onto machines

    #23 7 months ago

    Kickback in Pittsburgh had some really interesting ones when I went there a few years ago. They seemed to be attached to the floor, and weren’t tables per se; I think they were just for protecting the games, but they could easily have a tabletop attached. If I recall correctly they were mostly made out of foam with a wood or metal base.

    Quoted from oropuro:

    If you build a rectangular apron structure underneath and screw the board directly into that (black screws in the pic above), it flattens the camber/rocker of the board and you wind up with a nice flat surface. Minus the tip/tail of course.

    Pallet idea is great.. That's about all I'd have room for anyhow.
