New member and after spending days of reading and soaking in all the great ideas here... I am psyched to get started... not only playing (i remember reading here someone saying sometimes the most fun comes from not even playing the game) but to modify my game.

I was wondering what you guys used to mod the nets. I figured i start small.

Can you tell me what you are using for the frame and mostly what is being used for the netting some that are pictured here look great


thanks Cheers

Andrew,

I will try to post a picture of my latest net. I would say to try to stay away from the dense netting.

I've seen some nets used where you can't see the puck behind the net very well. This is important if your left winger has the puck and you want to perform and certain type of combination play.... or it's just nice to be able to have a clear view of the puck so you can make a decent pass and not turn the puck over.

Great work Paul ! you just inspired me to make a set for the game I just received for free, curious though as to what you used to secure the netting to the frame.

Basically, clear glue. I use what's called "Heavy Duty Welder Clear Contact Adhesive". It's a great glue.

Those nets are incredible. Even the mesh looks like the correct scale for each net hole in relation to the width and height and thickness of the posts. That's as good, a custom net for TH, as I've ever seen! Looks like you could shoot real pucks into that yawning cage!

sweet looking net Paul. if you guys have mcfarlane goalie nets, you can rip out the netting and fake leather at the bottom of the nets and construct the nets to get a look similar to what Paul has done.

Paul - you're turning out some killer parts dude. ice surface and nets... you have the stuff man

Thanks Guys,

The net's frame is steel rods that are used to hold insulation up in the rafters. The net is from mosquito netting that went over my kid's stroller. My youngest is now 8 yrs old and we didn't need the netting anymore. I threw it in the garbage, then it dawned on me that this is just the type of netting I was looking for. It's the only soft netting that wasn't so dense. (the laundry netting is too dense and doesn't look proportional to a scale model of the net. I figure if I'm going to go through the trouble of making custom nets, I might as well try to make it look some what good.

There's other netting that looks like this but it's really stiff and desn't work well or look very good.

The bottom part of goal where the NHL logo is attached is a soft nylon thin sock, like a mens dress sock.

Paul, have you tested them for in-and-outs? Do they keep the puck in or would one still have to use net deflectors?

These nets would need deflectors; that padded steel support in the back of the nets would send the puck flying back out if it hits it in the right spot.

Hey Paul,
The nets look great and I can imagine took a bit of time to create. I have found that no matter what you do to the netting in nets, they always have in and outs and thus your idea of deflectors are the only way to go. You still have the look of real mesh but little or no in and outs. Also on the other topic of ice surfaces, you did a great job and a great idea to try to build a better ice surface. I will pm you on another question.

Greetings fellow table hockey lovers. Have been playing now for 7 years and just love it! I had an old one when I was 11 (got it from the Sears catalog for Christmas), but it is long gone. I have a Stiga model that I got in 2001 and am interested in modifying it as well. I am interested in purchasing some nets (like the ones in this forum's photos from Paul), and having some custom painted teams made as well. If anyone is interested, I will compensate them of course if we can work out a deal. Thanks and look forward to a great time on this site! Go Flyers! Very Happy
