Re: key for tornado

The manager of the 'Tunsgate Club', a now defunct Guildford High Street drinking den above Russell and Bromley shoe shop, bought an old foosball table from 'The Parrot, Shalford' for £10.00. Opening it up, once installed, he found £20.00 in tanners inside ( what ever a 'tanner' is ).

Re: Vintage Table on Gumtree

I still have a few of the men for this type of table. I bought a job lot of about 10 for 100 quid
