Looks like a lot of fun!

where are you winching it to? Doesn't the light get in the way??
Have you thought about going digital?

The light will be taken out and Im going to put a plugin in its place then I can mount lights on the bottom of the race track for the pool table and I will plug in a light for the track when its down
as for the winch there is a pulley on the one wall and I just mounted a boat trailer winch and presto ..
And I really have not though about going digital yet I can get all the items form my supplier but one day maybe
cheers

nice track onslot. What are you using for the chainlink fence?

and to continue the off topic discussion... I too have a collection of hockey jerseys (I also have baseball). You have a few that I don't have yet. I like the all star weekend banner also! And the floor is fantastic!!! We did my son's bedroom up to look like the old Busch stadium in St Louis, w/ carpet inlays for the base paths and arches painted around the rim of the room. I think my new son needs the hockey look, and your floor is my inspiration.
Good work!

the chain link fence is 3/16 brake line and aluminum screen door screen hopefully have a section done tonight
that bedroom sounds pretty cool the floor in the games room took about 3 days we covered it in clear as well to protect it its very tough and the scrathes it does get look like skate marks

Looks really good so far
Well done
Maybe you could paint some white lines on at the edges of the track like in real life and it should look even better. Keep up the good work.

Thanks from,

Mike.

I like your track. Can you elaborate a bit on the lifting of the table to the roof system. Is it manual pulleys or an electric motor. Any tips on how to install it - positioning of the lifting points on the table etc. Does a system like this work well in practice in terms of ease of lifting and time required to lift the track.

Thanks
