New hardware needed for a larger table?
As the recommended table doesn’t ship to the US, I am looking for an alternative table. The most common air hockey tables seem to be 20in (50.8cm) wide. But the stainless steel bars in the kit are only 45.5cm long. Do I need to get longer stainless steel bars (also 8mm diameter) for this purpose? Aside from the stainless steel bars, are there other alternative/modified parts needed?
I’m looking at something like this:
The only thing you will need to create to attach the robot to those tables are the “corner” supports. The “original” air hockey table has square corners, the ones you have listed, rounded. Maybe a 3D printer adapter can do the job 🙂
About the steel bars: the kit´s ones are long enough. Keep in mind that they are the ones placed in the laterals, so the robot can move “up” and “down”
